I have just finished writing a scheduled post for Saturday, when I'll be away. It was great fun! I wonder if you can tell which posts were obviously the funnest (most fun?) to write. Anyway, in it, I mentioned this fabulous book which I have, which is a collection of 'Great Costumes from Classic Movies Paper Dolls'. Buy here.
I have had it for quite a few years now and I used to adore going through it practically nightly (obsessed? moi?) reading Tom Tierney's wonderful notes at the front and back and choosing my favourite costumes. I even had a notebook full of my 'designs' which were often very much 'inspired' by the costumes in this book.
I've never been able to destroy the beauty of the plates by cutting them out but in some ways this booklet is my earliest 'fashion memory'. And it's linked to one of my favourite activities... dressing dolls up. More on that later... maybe.
