    The vintage fashion bible is such a fun and handy reference for anyone interested in learning more about different periods in fashion history. It's not the easiest book to read cover-cover. The layout isn't consistent but I get what they were going for! The book is broken down by decade starting with 1920s and ending with the 90s. Each decade features commentary, photos and vintage advertisements if the most popular style of dress for day, evening, and leisure.

Each decade features commentary, photos and vintage advertisements if the most popular style of dress for day, evening, and leisure. Period looks are examined from head to toe; shoes, accessories, perfume and even makeup is covered. Overall I enjoyed paging through my favorite decades and retained some fun fashion facts! My only dislike? Both authors are British so some terms and UK focused historical events didn't translate exactly for me as a US reader.

    This book is HUGE and informative, but it gives really basic information about the fashion and accessories in the era's it discusses. It uses a lot of pictures, which is great, but this isn't the complete guide it claims to be. There are tons of great books about vintage fashion, and this just isn't it. It isn't bad, it's just really basic. If you need a nice coffee table book with lots of pictures, totally get this!

    A very good guide to Vintage. I love how styles of the different eras was split into daywear, evening wear, sportswear, women and menswear. Top addition to my fashion library.

    A comprehensive look at fashion styles arranged by decade from 1920 - 1990. I liked all the old advertisements from catalogs and vintage photographs. The special section on "weddings" was really enjoyable and the "future vintage" section on current fashion trends that they predict will be vintage later (top knots, hipster breads, gel nail polish!) was a hoot. Included some tips for "getting the look" and collecting vintage clothing. An enjoyable read on the history of fashion trends.
