The 1940s, new shoes and e-book

After being crazy about the 50s for a long time, I am now in love with the 40s.  I blame the TV show Foyles War, which is set during WWII, including the early 40s.

As yet I don’t own any vintage 40s dresses, although I have ordered one on Etsy from the US.  I have been trying to perfect victory rolls, and have been wearing   inspire 40s clothing, including some great shoes I bought recently (Rivers $39).

To help me with my transition to a 40s look, I have just bought this great ebook:-

You can find it at vintage dancer, for just $21.  Her blog/website is great too, and well worth a look.

Have a great vintage day,
