I’ve been curious about vintage styling with the influx of vintage style bloggers on my Google Reader feed. The clothes, make-up and hair have always been beautiful to me, and I’ve learned to identify some eras with ease. I learned about the Style Me Vintage series on a blog, I can’t recall which. I figured for $10, I could give this one a try.
I can’t speak to the thoroughness or accuracy of the info, as I know next to nothing about vintage clothing history but, it’s a beautiful book with great style. I was hesitant to give the other two in the series a try.
I’m not that into make-up and gather that some of the hair styles will be difficult to achieve on textured hair. Now that I’ve seen this one, I wish I had taken the plunge and gotten all three.
I think walking around full on vintage, make-up + hair + clothes, requires a level of confidence I just don’t have. But I think dabbling a bit might be fun.
What’s your take on vintage styling? Too costume-y? Fun once in a while?
