    Very interesting links! They do get you thinking.
    Very much in disagreement with ‘why 1940’s is not really a fashion trend’, though. Style is about appearance! Women who wear victory rolls and stockings and hats as part of their clothing repertoire are in the vast majority doing so because they like the look of it not because they’re wishing they lived in the 40’s. Perhaps some naively do. And maybe some even do it flippantly. I think that in fact it is the right of fashion to be irreverent. I love to wear original vintage items from the war era, from garrison hats to medals, and I’m on the opposite end of the spectrum maybe because I like to wear it because it’s flippant.

    Thanks for linking to my post, and I’m glad you enjoyed it. @Lisa – I was trying to emphasise that I don’t want to see ’40s fashion’ filling up high street shops and just reduced to another disposable trend, but I don’t think that comes across in my post.
