if you enjoy 40’s fashion then you will love this film just for its clothes and hairstyles. kristen scott thomas looks amazing and makes me feel that i should sort out my hair and outfit each day! set around the early years of world war 2 in france, its a romance but also a reminder of the horrors of living during a war.
if you want to know more about vintage clothes and how to introduce them into your own daily wardrobe, then this little book is the perfect thing (and of course, i did the photographs again). its especially a good gift for young teenagers who are just getting into buying vintage. its a follow on from the style me vintage make up book, that shows you how to get the make up look of 1920’s or 1940’s, but this one shows you the styles and types of clothes that illustrate that era.
by the way, there is an exhibition at the imperial museum that you must see – fashion on the ration, 1940’s street style, which shows how fashion had to adapt with rationing. could be very inspiring and encourage you to start altering your own clothes – its on my list of exhibitions to see at the moment.
