The team at Adored Vintage is now an official team because there are actually two of us here now! Before it was just me! A big part of growing the company and finding gals to work alongside me is I want to bring on people that embody the AV girl spirit. Feminine, romantic, spirited, lover of beauty and creating beautiful things. I sat down with Ashe and asked her some questions so you can get to know her better!
Describe your perfect Sunday?
Waking up early and running a bath. Making a large mug of black tea with milk and honey. Tossing on my favorite sundress and sandals. Heading to my favorite thrift stores to look for vintage. A leisurely walk to the farmer's market and grocery store to look for inspired ingredients. An afternoon slice of pie and cup of coffee with a good book. And an early evening picnic or cooking a delicious meal.
Tell me your beauty routine you gorgeous creature you!
I love the French approach to beauty and I firmly believe that investing in your skin is more important than any investment you could make in makeup. I wash my face with Bioderma in the evening and spray on tons of rosewater. I love rich serums and a cycle through a bunch of different ones. My favorite right now is a hyaluronic acid serum from The Ordinary. I love to pick up new beauty products when I travel and right now I'm using a moisturizer that I got in Italy. My morning routine is very similar except I just wash my face with a warm washcloth. After, I grab my go-to products: lipstick and an eyelash curler. If I need a flush of color I may apply a bit of lipstick to my cheeks. My absolute favorite lipstick brand is Kosas.
Where in Portland will you most likely be spotted?
Portland has so many wonderful places! I love going to Spella Caffe for a cappuccino - It's like walking into an Italian caffe and, it's super adorable. My go to for dinner is Burrasca which serves authentic Florentine food. And of course, I love Pinolo Gelato. I also adore the amazing Farmer's Markets! Portland has so many.
You never leave home without...
Lipstick and a book.
What's your signature style piece?
A basket bag and a *baguette.

*Ashe and I have a mutual friend, Amy, and before I even met Ashe, Amy would tell me about how she had this one friend who always carries around a baguette and I remember telling Amy, "OMG, WHO is this baguette girl?! I want to meet her!" Isn't the world a wonderful small place?
Ashe's AV Shop Pick:
"The Sofia Dress is very French Girl! Messy hair and flats sitting at a cafe having a coffee with red lipstick. It's still an AV girl dress, but instead of a meadow, she's in Paris."
