Need some vintage fashion, beauty, and style through the decades inspiration? Well look no further. On this page you will find every single image oriented post I have written about the decades from the 1920s through the 1960s.
Ever since I was a little girl I have been enamoured by vintage fashion and beauty.
In college my major was costume design because all I wanted to do was study vintage fashion, especially in the periods from 1920 through 1960. As an adult I decided to transform myself into The Glamorous Housewife and through that process I have written dozens of posts about all kinds of vintage hair, makeup, and fashion. I thought I put them all together on one page to make it easier for you, my dear reader, to read them. This page will be updated from time to time with any new vintage beauty posts so be sure to come back often.
The 1920s was a decade full of party hopping flappers and short hair bobs. The stuffy clothing restrictions of the past were overthrown and both men and women enjoyed a more casual style.
