Like Kate Moss and other style icons, we love vintage – we just wish we were as good at sourcing it as La Moss. Luckily, new book A Girl’s Guide to Vintage by style expert Lynne McCrossan (£7.99, Luath) answers our fash prayers.
It’s an encyclopedia of the best vintage shops aross the UK, with cute shoots, styling suggestsions, celeb profiles and the pick of the best vintage shops, from Edinburgh down to Brighton, Leeds to Liverpool, Birmingham, Cardiff and beyond. Each city features profiles of its three top vintage stores, with a mini 'Yellow Pages' of further vintage picks, antiques stalls and charity shops.
The best bit? It’s handbag sized, so you can pop it in your clutch (vintage, of course) as a handy reference guide as you shop.
A Girl’s Guide to Vintage by Lynne McCrossan (£7.99, Luath) is available now at Amazon.co.uk
