    pair of tiny and narrow sized late 1860's lady's riding boots which were lined in white cotton and pink leather. They are field boot in style rather than the typical dress boot (so all you historical re-enactors out there who ride side saddle, field boots WERE worn then for riding!) and have square toed straight soles with spur rests on BOTH boots.

    Ankle Boots These are a pair of woman's ankle boots, laced up the inside ankle. This practical footwear is a mix of fabric - blue and white check woven wool - and leather, with a black kid vamp to reinforce areas of wear. There is a small leather heel. The boots are well made and probably worn by a lady of the middle class. Date: 1840s The Museum of London

    Jodhpurs are way way too late to make any sense for Lovelace but TOO BAD. That's a pretty sweet steampunky belt.

    The well-known engraving, looks enough like the photo I'm ready to call it a likeness. Lovelace herself didn't think much of the get-up she's in here-- "stiff and the exaggeration of fashion"
