Tip of the day #1

Path of the Warrioress Vintage Treasure Seeker, Tip # 1

To begin your education on the Vintage Fashion Quest, go to your favorite used book store or Amazon and peruse the history of fashion or collectibles aisle for books on your topic; i.e. costume jewelry, hats, purses, compacts, accessories, shoes etc or vintage clothing.
***Read the Reviews!!

Under vintage clothing there are several sub-categories of books to explore such as; specific decades 20’s / 30’s / 40’s / 50’s / 60’s etc, overviews of the last century of fashion trends, couture history / designers and everyday collectible fashion. My favorites have actual photographs of the clothes, rather than illustrations, along with photos of women wearing the clothes in the past and present. In the next blog, I’ll list some of my favorites and over the days to come do some reviews.
