Video Blog: Vintage Book On Vintage Looks!

I found this book at a bootsale for 20p. It's very interesting... a vintage book about vintage. Even in the 1940s, women were inspired by outfits from the past and wanted to emulate these styles in their 'modern' fashions. Enjoy!

I've said it all in my (honking, terrible) narration, so just let me know what you think and follow my channel if you like quirky vintage book reviews!


  1. What an interesting find, the illustrations are wonderful. Loved hearing your voice, you Southern girls always sound posh to us rough North-of-Watford types. x

  2. I do enjoy your video blogs and this one was no exception. As someone who is very much into history it is refreshing to see a post showing vintage was being discussed in the 1940s.

  3. and I love hearing your accent too and I can't wait to hear the difference depending on where in the UK I am. Lovely book and so weird to think in the 40's they were into vintage.

  4. Wow! who knew that in the 1940's they were inspired by older fashion.
    love your accent amor.

  5. How fascinating, you do come across some great books. Amazing illustrations, what an absolute bargain.
