Pages and pages of user submitted looks...the whole website is a giant lookbook! You can hype looks that you love, leave comments and find out where the pieces worn are from. Just be sure you have a couple hours free before you dive in, because LOOKBOOK.nu is a vintage fashion rabbit hole!

Their first lookbook is inspired by Coco Chanel and leaves you wanting more. Here's to hoping they deliver!

Nasty Gal

The Nasty Gal lookbooks have outstanding styling and super editorial photography. Nasty Gal certainly has their finger on the pulse of urban/indie vintage style. 

Spanish Moss Vintage

Very well done premier Native American themed lookbook for Fall 2009. Giant, bold images like this are how a lookbook should be done.
