My Favourite Vintage Knitting Etsy Stores!

Since about a year, I've taken up knitting. Why, you may ask? Because there are tons of clothes I see the pretty ladies in movies wear, that I can't find anywhere! I love the 1950s style, but I either have to sell my kidneys to pay for it, or I can't find anything like it.… Continue reading My Favourite Vintage Knitting Etsy Stores!

Good Housekeeping

A few months ago, I made a blogpost about my vintage magazine collection. Since then, it's gotten out of hand (as you'll notice in upcoming posts...) and I wanted to share with you why I collect them, and maybe inspire you into collecting them too!

This book talks about children's, women's… Continue reading Review: Fashion in the 1940s by Jayne Shrimpton

Review: 1940’s Hairstyles by Daniela Turudich

I can't start writing again, without starting to review a vintage-styled book! I'm mostly a 50s kind of gal, but lately I've been enjoying the 1940s style more, so I wanted to read a book about hairstyles, as the 1940s have some beautiful hairstyles for the working girl, and as I am a new working… Continue reading Review: 1940’s Hairstyles by Daniela Turudich

Review: Vintage Secrets Hollywood Beauty by Laura Slater

I've read so many vintage beauty books that I'm surprised that I haven't read them all yet! This is the newest one to my collection, and I was a bit weary reading it. I'm not sure why, but I was! Did my gut feeling prove me right? A stylish and informative guide to beauty from… Continue reading Review: Vintage Secrets Hollywood Beauty by Laura Slater
