I have some posts I am still working on. A Bakelite post for Brook and a makeup post for Sarah. If you guys ever have any requests for me feel free to leave me a comment. I love hearing your ideas! I have more Viva posts coming too of course.
Today I'm going to share some pictures from a book I have. Ever since I got into all of this over 10 years ago I have used these books as reference and inspiration. I didn't have internet at the time so I would buy every book about vintage fashion (or just picture heavy books in general). Old magazines are a great resource as well. I taught myself how to do vintage hair using these books. Now, as we're starting our store, we use these books to reference items we have bought, or are looking to buy. They are a great help!
I got this book a while back and thought I'd share it with you. I also have the 40s and 50s ones, so I will share those later. Eventually I will have a scanner so I can post better pictures for you. This book is filled with beautiful things, so I highly recommend getting it.
Totally cute cable knit sweater!
This is around 1939. The hair and clothes are starting to look more 40's.
I would KILL for this outfit! I even have some sombrero earrings that would look perfect!
Gabardine! The nations favorite.
There are so many cute hairstyles in this book.
I need more hats...
You gotta love a buckle back jacket!
The sweaters are so cute!! I love the short sleeved ones.
Cloches in every style and color.
We have some mens sweaters like this one that will be in our store.
Even the shoes are Art Deco!
