We are Debbie and Oscar, your guides to dressing up like decades past. We are here to help you find clothing online and learn about vintage fashions as worn by everyday people, just like you. Need help with your outfit? Ask us anytime.


  1. I have a pair of old vintage dancer shoes. Mens. They were made in Italy by Johnston and murphy. They are in goo shape. Im trying to see what year they may be.

    • Dating men’s shoes can be tricky. I would join and ask in the Facebook “i love vintage men’s shoes (pre-1960)!” group or “Fedora Lounge.”

  2. Or even better, you can suede them. Just get a piece of suede, some Shoe Goo, and let the glue dry thoroughly (at least 3 days) before wearing.
