Skinny cat approves ►The search for knowlege

Ladies and gentlemen! In fact, mostly ladies. Are you in the mood for a great confession?
Actually, maybe not so great, but it certainly is confession. Perhaps it may be huge in terms of that it was hard to roll it out of lips. Sit back and fasten your seat belts, we're taking off. :)
All of you who follow this blog (or at least occasionally drop in) are clear with my love for all dusty and forgotten pieces grabbed from shelves of vintage shops.
You might be surprised, therefore, that for me there is one thing hard to succeed in, and that is puting my love into right frames. To be more precisely, classifying certain styles and clothes in a certain fashion era.
Guidelines are definitely known, no question about that, but I'd be happy if I could say with certainty-
this shirt belongs to the 50's, and that hat is from the 30's. Period.
So I'm having one request for you- I'm looking for literature that would spread a little knowledge of the history of fashion and style. If you have read or even just heard of a book that would fit this description, please let me know! My curiosity will be so grateful to you. :)

About the findings, I couldn't be more happy about these shoes than I am right now. They are from local thrift shop and since I was looking for brown flates for ages, I was so glad when I found them finally. 
There's also red polka dot shirt hanging from a tree. Is this collar detail adorable or what? Oh, in the meantime, I managed to burn it with the iron. :/
Also, I needed one more red and blue scarf. And Sheldon? He was asleep, I didn't want to disturb him. Because it's a rare opertunity for a cat to get some good sleep these days, you know. -.-

  2. Divne stvarčice...Zanima me koje to shs-ove posjećuješ, ako nije tajna...I nažalost ne znam za knjigu, ali mislim da se s gornjim Taschenom ne može pogrijašiti...Jedino ako te zanima interior design ima jedna sjajna na tu temu Flea market style. U ovom slučaju nomen est omen tako da je sve jasno! Mislim da sam ju preko amazona ugrabila. Ilina

    1. Uf, zbilja ih posjećujem puno. U zadnje vrijeme najviše textile house, imaju mnogo prodavaonica širom grada, ja najčešće odem u onu u dubravi. imaju svoju stranicu na facebooku pa ih možeš potražiti i pronaći onu koja ti je najbliža. :)

      i hvala ti puno za ovu knjigu, u zadnje vrijeme dosta škicam neke diy home design projekte, a komadi s hrelića su uvijek izvrsna investicija za vlastitu kreativnost. :)

  3. divne su stvari!
    haha meni se stalno dogadaju nezgode sa second hand odjecom u zadnje vrijeme. vec ludim. I to nakon sto prepravim.
    Za knigu, jedna od najboljih (a moze se nabavit i kod nas) meni osobno je Illustrated encyclopedia of World Costume. autorica je Doreen Yarwood. Nekih 500 strana, meki uvez, a cijena manje od 200 kn sto je prepovoljno za takvu knjigu. Pogleldaj, Algoritam il Profil, nisam sigurna. stvarno je dobra. A imas i encyclopedia of Vintage Fashion.

    ajme hvala za comment, *blush blush :)

  4. Oh I am a constant guesser, most of the times you can tell by labels, zips and obviously cuts. But I could never say for sure, however those loafers are fabulous! xxx

    1. hvala. :)
      o shs-ima sam napisala gore, ali već dugo razmišljam napraviti neki post o istima, možda malo pofotkati i slično. ne znam koliko bi vlasnici bili zainteresirani za takvu suradnju, a i vi za takve postove (?).

    2. hvala na informacijama :) i ja često idem u textile house al nisam još na cipele naletila. al bit će bolje :) napiši post o shs-ovima, mislim da bi vlasnicima bilo jako drago da se ostvari ta suradnja.

    3. Da, i meni se čini da bi to bio super post! Samo naprijed, a i ne znam zašto se to vlasnicima ne bi svidjelo, pa to je super reklama! :) Ilina
