At The Dressing Up Box we are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Lynne McCrossan's first book “A Girl's Guide to Vintage”.
Glasgow born McCrossan spent 3 months travelling the length and breadth of the country reviewing locations in 15 cities for her vintage guide.
Full of beautiful snapshots of the shops she has reviewed and features on local celebs that love to shop vintage, the book is a visual treat.
Unfortunately for us, The Dressing Up Box was just a twinkle in our eyes when McCrossan was researching her book but we hope to feature in a revised edition soon!
“A Girl's Guide to Vintage” is available at Topshop, Amazon and many other retailers.
In a recent interview for Scotland on Sunday McCrossan said what is now possibly our new favourite quote: “If clothes could talk, vintage would have the most to say”. How lovely is that?

Where I would be heading if only the Carnoustie Big Gig wasn't happening next weekend...
This has absolutely EVERYTHING I could want at a festival, I could even stay in a little gypsy caravan, how very chic!
I am so GUTTED to be missing this this year-already penciled in my diary for next year...and I CANNOT WAIT!
PS. I am also a little devastated I was not the brains behind this wonderful festial....
