Review: 1940s Fashion by Fiona Kay and Neil R. Storey

I' ve read a lot of fashion history books, honestly, I have. When I was in London recently I found this little one, tucked between some really big books, but it caught my eye immediately! Is it one I recommend? Despite - or perhaps because of - the privations of war, the 1940s was one… Continue reading Review: 1940s Fashion by Fiona Kay and Neil R. Storey

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
