F.A.Q. - Why Don't You Carry Plus Sizes?

Every once in awhile we get an email or an Instagram message (some kinder than others) asking why we do not carry plus sizes here at Adored Vintage. I thought it would be a good idea to share the reasons we don't (at this time) and also to address some of the specific responses we have received. I truly hope this Journal post...

Q&A: Going to Market!

Q&A: Going to Market!

Earlier this month I went to Market, which in boutique world means you attend a fashion tradeshow to view upcoming seasons of clothing from different brands, designers, and showrooms. Market tradeshows happen all over the world (I was fortunate enough to attend one in Paris last Autumn!) and there is a tradeshow for practically anything! This time, I took one of our newest team...

Muse: Victorian Era Illustrator Kate Greenway

March is nearly upon us dear friends and of course this has me thinking several times a day about flowers. Perhaps because all the seasonal blooms in Portland are sprouting out of the ground to meet the sun! Along my February walks I have come across crocuses, snowdrops, camelias, hellebores, wild narcissis, daffodils, and the intoxicating sweet scent of daphne...

New Arrivals / Sense of Sisterhood

New Arrivals / Sense of Sisterhood

Bonjour dearies! This week's new shop arrivals feature cozy and comfortable pieces that remind us of some of our favorite 90s movie characters, Gillian and Sally from Practical Magic.  Floral midi skirts, lightweight cardigans, and button down midi dresses make us feel timelessly feminine, comfortable and honestly beautiful too!

New Arrivals / A Chance of Rain La Tempête Skirt

This week's new arrivals feel quite fitting for the recent weather we've been enjoying here in Portland. Pouring rain, thunder, and sunshine meld together (in the same day!) to create the perfect introduction to the fall season. We can hardly wait to wear all the cozy sweaters, drink lots of spiced tea, and scoop up leaves to toss them into the...

Fashion Glossary: Vintage & Modern Lingerie

(featured photo should be overall lingerie photo) Vintage and Modern Lingerie: An Intro Lingerie, or underpinnings, have been an important part of dressing for centuries as a way to shape and support the body. It has evolved as often as the clothes worn over them, yet some of the terms used in previous eras have fallen out of style. Thus,...

A Vintage Inspired Outfit for an Autumn afternoon stroll in Paris...

Imagine yourself in Paris at this moment, in the 4th arrondisement... It's Autumn and surprisingly warm for this time of year. You've just stopped briefly at Notre Dame and now walking along the stone cobbled streets along the Siene. You have your vintage inspired basket purse casually slung on one arm thankful it's roomy enough to hold your travel camera,...

The Mystical Art of Kathleen Lolly

The Mystical Art of Kathleen Lolly

Here at the studio, we understand that magic is a special thing which is found, not always given. You must look for it around corners and beneath flower pots, or take chances into your own hands and imbue it into the treasured objects around you. So how delighted were we to find these enchanting paintings by visual artist Kathleen Lolly! Her paintings evoke imagery of the...
