Thank you for stopping by.

Vogue Covers

Vogue Covers

Did you know you can buy vintage magazines at Paper Pursuits? They carry design and fashion magazines and magazine ads, as well as books and patterns. I've purchased from them and have been pleased with their turnaround and the product received. It's fun to click through their website at all the different magazines — I love the fashion magazines, especially Vogue and Bazaar, the most — but if you want an at-a-glance and in your hands eyeful of Vogue goodness, then you should buy VOGUE: THE COVERS. You'll get over 270 pages of vintage fashion eye candy dating back to the 1890s and all the way up to the 2000s. It's fascinating to see the evolution of the cover and all the creative ways Vogue promoted its fashion empire. Of course my favorite decades are the 50s-70s. Below I've featured a few covers from the 1960s. I love the head wraps and outrageous hats! You can order the book here from Amazon.

You won't regret it. I regularly page through this book for inspiration.
