When I lived in Saint Paul, I used to love spending Saturday afternoon’s at the Saint Paul Public Library browsing through their numerous vintage Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar collections. I swore to myself that I would go through each one and take photos of whatever inspired me. I didn’t even get close to getting through their extensive collection, but I have started collecting my own vintage fashion magazines over the years. Ebay is a great resource of course, but my favorite source to purchase vintage magazines is Paper Pursuits. They have an enormous and amazing collection, especially of L’Officiel and other European magazines. Here is a mere sampling of my favorites images from my collection and the Library’s. I will post more images in future blogs. Can you tell I am on a wool and bright color kick lately?
