Fashion Do's and Dont's from 1943

It's been a long time since my last Great Hair Fridays post! Today I want to share with you all some images from an awesome little booklet I own. This Fashion Do's and Dont's for Head and Face booklet by Colette is from 1943 and has 48 pages designed to help you look your best!

If you enjoy vintage fashion from the 1940's you'll find these images really useful. The graphics are absolutely priceless. On the surface, this book in 1943 was to help a any woman achieve beauty through choosing the right make-up, hats, glasses, accessories, etc. suited to her type. Today this little book is a treasure-trove and reveals the fantastic LOOK of the 1940’s with lots of cool illustrations.

This book covers ALL the possible physical features and "flaws" one could have and what to do with them. On my list of projects for waaaaay down the road, I'd like to reproduce this booklet so other can enjoy it in its entirety!


  1. Oooh, I'd love to see more of this booklet! Turning it into a series on your blog may make it less overwhelming and more "do-able" than reproducing it all at once. Just a thought. Thank you for sharing :)


  2. Oh it looks fantastic! Thank you for sharing this snippet!

  3. What an awesome booklet! I do hope you will reproduce it one day! It would be such a great resource.
