Vintage Bookshelf: Style Me Vintage - Clothes
The buzz all over the vintage blogosphere at the moment is all about Naomi Thompson's new book, "Style Me Vintage - Clothes". The book is a fabulous entry-level guide to vintage clothing, covering key looks decade by decade from the 1920s to 1980s.
Day and evening looks from each decade are detailed in checklists and modelled by Naomi's friends and family. Each section is also complemented with gorgeous fabric swatches - and you know how I feel about novelty prints!
There are also sections covering dating vintage, caring for vintage clothes, and shopping for vintage. This is the book you need if you're starting out in vintage and looking for advice to help develop your style. If only this book had been around when I was 20 I could avoided years in a style wilderness.
The book is beautifully presented and a great little reference - even if you're not a vintage beginner, it's great for a flick-through for inspiration.
