Well, the TV show and the related book arrived last year, but the vintage-style clothing by Dawn o’Porter is still an ongoing thing. That includes The Ophelia shift dress at Bob.
Dawn O'Porter's recent TV show, This Old Thing, attempted to convince the UK population of the joys of vintage (as if we needed any persuasion!). She's followed up by opening BOB, an online shop selling original vintage along some especially designed repro pieces. The collection including this charming 1950s-style Jane Quotes skirt.
I think this 1970s space age Bob wall or desk clock tells us two things. Firstly, that quirky design is still to be found on eBay and secondly, that a good photo does wonders for 'selling' your product.
We've shown you some practical guides to vintage hairdressing but for a different approach you may want to pick up a copy of Hairstyles: Ancient to Present.
Written by Charlotte Fiell and published by her Fiell Publishing company, it's a huge doorstopper of a book: with over one thousand images and 576 pages of hair inspiration. It charts some of the most elaborate styles throughout history, going right back to ancient Greece, but with plenty of twentieth-century fancy folicles to explore too. There's the flapper bob, Twiggy's crop and the mohawk just for starters.
It's not a cheap buy – the book is priced £49.95 and is currently available on Amazon for £47.75 – but potentially a sound investment if you are considering a new hairstyle.
