  1. This is a fascinating lens to look back at trends with … makes me think of the London teddy boys and girls.

    1. Stephanie- even with the outdated fashion pictures this book is well written with some great advice about wardrobe planning.

      “Success with today’s fashion relies far more on individual style than on a large budget…”

      And we both must be “trying to escape”…I love classic tweed too! :)
