Ever since I watched The English Patient, The Good German, and Black Book (Zwartboek) a few weeks ago I have been really into 40’s fashion. Everything seems to come with a hat or a veil, it’s a lot of fun.

Sydney’s Vintage Clothing online store has a great selection of 40s vintage as well as all the other decades. Plus, the prices are very reasonable.

With this site anyone can look like Carice van Houten. Well, everyone can try at least.

Jewelry designer Wendy Brandes recently recreated the Anne Boleyn necklace.

Vintage items are not throw backs, because they are the real thing. But let’s compare your great vintage item to say Audrey Hepburn’s style when it was the latest fad.
