  1. Two very different kinds of WW2 stories!

  2. Both of these I'd like to see. Dressed for War more so than the first though. We do prefer fashion over watching people get picked off one by one.

    1. It was more life advices than fashion, I assume. They say that Vogue is currently returning, sadly, to being a magazine for the rich elite not for all people.

  5. These both look great, but Dressed for War is definitely the winner. :) Although, I've never been a fan of Vogue magazine. I always feel like it's just pages upon pages of advertisements with no real substance.
