Vintage clothing is more popular than ever, as celebrities such as Kate Moss, Winona Ryder, and Kim Basinger arrive at gala events in vintage eveningwear, and auctions for vintage clothing attract record bids. Dressing Up Vintage celebrates vintage clothing, jewelry, and accessories, while offering useful information on how to spot a valuable piece and how to tell one designer from another. Author Tracy Tolkien details all the fashion roles of the post-WWII years -- from the debutante to the teenybopper and the hippie to the powerdresser. Through specially commissioned photography, she chronicles highlights in men's and women's fashion history, such as Dior's debut of the New Look and the arrival of the mini skirt, and advises readers on the features of different designers and how to spot a valuable piece.

With an extensive listing of over 600 sources for locating vintage clothing and accessories, Dressing Up Vintage is an invaluable resource for vintage fans. With this resource, readers can track down vintage clothing at thrift shops, markets, auctions, and vintage shops throughout the world.
