    One thought on “Fashion in the 1940s”

    1. The glamourous 40's are one of my absolute favorite vintage eras. This book was very informative with all of its facts, tid bits, and stories. I would have like to see more fashion seeing as how it's titled Fashion in the 1940's. Alas! I still enjoyed learning more about my favorite era. I would refer to it again for reference material, and I would recommend it to vintag lovers.

    2. Don't let it's small size fool you! This is one of the most informative fashion related books I've read, great use of pictures and advertisements, and also includes men's fashion. A great book to have!
