1940s Fashion The Definitive Sourcebook by Emmanuelle Dirix and Charlotte Feill is a beautiful piece of art in itself. With pages filled with beautiful photographs and sketches from the 40s which for myself who is a tad obsessed with all things 1940s is the perfect way to immerse myself in 40sness.
With sections on Daywear, Outerwear, Eveningwear and Accessories it is a great reference book if you are looking to create 1940s looks on your own as you can look for inspiration in whichever section you like.
Have you got this book? Or do you have the 1920s or 1930s sourcebook? I'm investing in those two soon myself!
