Love reading about fashion history? You’ve come to the right place. Our passion at VintageDancer is to research and write about vintage fashion history as it was worn by normal, everyday people of all classes, and to teach YOU how to re-create the looks within your budget. We have hundreds of articles on the website spanning the Victorian Era (1840s) on up to the 1970s. You could spend months reading them all, or you can get them delivered to your email inbox and read them at a more leisurely pace.
We have not just one but several lists to choose from. Our general list includes all of the latest published articles, while our decade specific lists are curated to send you an entire series of articles dedicated to one fashion period. These series are called “Style Guides” and we have 1920s, 1940s, and women’s 1950s styles guides available for you to join.
You can sign up for any or all of these lists. If you sign up for more than one series at a time, though, you might get overwhelmed by all the reading. Some readers save them to a folder to read later while others only sign up for one series at a time. The choice is yours!
On to the lists:

Books by the VintageDancer
I have written extensive fashion history and style advice in a few published eBooks and free email courses for other decades of fashion:
My first book was the 1940s Style Guide: The Complete Illustrated Guide to 1940s Fashion for Women and Men. It is still available as an eBook ($9.99) or printed book ($14.00). Since its first publication, I have put most of the chapters online and revised/updated them. I leave the book available for sale for those who want to carry a copy with them.
To go with that I also have a free mini book 1940s Fashion for Your Body Type (women).
I then moved away from the 1940s and went back to the 1920s with another free mini eBook 1920s Fashion for Your Body Type (women) followed by, you guessed it, the 1920s Style Guide email series.
Then came The Great Gatsby in Fashion – an annotation of The Great Gatsby book looking at all the reference to ’20s fashion. What was Gas Blue? Pottery Bracelets? A Tennis outfit? All these and more are explained for only $2.99.
