Discovering that perfect vintage treasure is thrilling but the hunt for it can be overwhelming.  These guides can help you make good purchase decisions when you are feeling dazzled, tempted, over-stimulated, or uncertain amongst all those hats, capes, tiny dresses, and tulle.   

 

Then let your hair and makeup travel back in time along with your wardrobe!  Learn some hair and makeup techniques to complement your new (to you) vintage clothes and accessories.  Check out these books on classic hairstyles and looks - from 1920s finger waves to the 1960s bouffant...or glamorous 1940s red lips to the dramatic colours and angles of 1980’s punk rock makeup.
