Stuff Day - Fashion Book


I was so excited about my shoes yesterday I completely forgot it was Stuff Day!  To make up for it, here's Stuff Day a day late.



I recently acquired a copy of this book, and it's great.  It follows a history of fashion through the centuries with primary sources, not redrawn pictures.  The information points out great details in the clothing that you may have missed that can make a costume truly authentic.  It's not as inclusive or detailed as Boucher, but it's also not as expensive.  It's a great book to add to a costume history library!
