The hubby and I made a little jaunt to our local Barnes & Noble the other night so that I could get a calendar. I know!! Sometimes I feel like such a Luddite, using an actual analog wall calendar.
I got a great vintage-fashion themed one, that maybe I'll share with you in another post.
Besides my fab calendar, I found soooo many books that I would love to have!
Here's a few you might like, also:
I love the print on the cover! I think I might actually buy this one.
(there was also a 60's prints one...I like 50's prints better)
I'm not a super-huge Lilly Pulitzer fan, but I love to read the stories of women who succeeded in the fashion & design world, like Vera and Tammis Keefe.
Fun eye candy! Plus, forward by Dita. What's not to love?
The gentleman who wrote this book actually has a shop here in LA by the same name. I've never been there...my impression is that it's very fancy and uber-expensive, and I get easily intimidated by such places!
This one drew me in immediately, because of the cover. Faye Dunaway in Bonnie & Clyde! I actually have mixed feelings about that film, because Bonnie and Clyde were horrible, ugly people in real life and I don't feel great about a movie that celebrates them, but OMG, the clothes in that film are fantastic!!
I'm guessing that most, if not all of these books would be available on Amazon. First, though, I always check the local library :-)
If & when I do read any of these wonderful-looking books, I'll be sure and write a review for you!
Are then any vintage-related books that you're dying to get your mitts on? I'd love to hear!
