Vintage Chic


I've always enjoyed vintage fashions and fashion history (though I'm now old enough to remember when some vintage fashions were new!) This is my blog for posting images from the large collection of old catalogs and fashion magazines I have piled up in my spare room. I'll be posting stuff from between the 1940s and the 1980s. A warning to visitors: Some of these images are scary!
