    I’ll always be a fan of the classic day dresses of the 40’s and 50’s. Simple, stylish and able to be made in many fabrics.

    It’s definitely got to be the 40’s and 50’s.The beautiful style, fitting and clean lines are sooooo gorgeous. I envy the talent of the creators. They were true professionals.

    Victorian fashion is my fave. You can’t beat a good corset & with the modern twist of steampunk this is vintage at its best!

    I would have to say the 70’s is my favorite. I own a couple high waist pants and have been wearing them even before they came back in style and I love the way they make my legs look lean and long.

    I love the style of the mid to late 30s and early forties. Love those lines and simple, yet beautiful, features that make the garments stand out.

    How can you pick? The 60’s were such a great combination of femininity and strength with smart tailoring, though. I’d have to go with that.

    I can’t make my mind up which I like best – 20’s 30’s 50’s 60’s – Not the 70’s or 80’s too close to home.

    I love the women’s clothes and hats of the 1930’s – bias cut evening gowns, lovely day dresses, very cute skirt suits, and the wide leg trousers.

    Really it’s the tacky yet cool mens button up shirts from the 60’s/70’s They have some crazy fabrics – now that I think of it I really need to add to my collection by buying vintage if I can’t find some fabrics to make my own soon here!
