Ode to Vintage Victoria: Issue April 1994
Posted by ADORED VINTAGE
Another installment (albeit I'm a week late, sorry friends!) of my monthly ode to my favorite vintage magazine, Victoria! I couldn't quite decide which April issue to feature from my collection and I settled on 1994 because it contains one of my favorite outfits ever to grace the paces of vintage Victoria magazine.
As always, these are just my favorite parts of the issue, there are several stories and features not shown here (a story on hooked rugs, floral shoe illustrations, objects with a butterfly motif...). The features I am showing are those near and dear to my heart like the photos of "Wild Child", a dreamlike floral and gift shop in Rhode Island. Sadly I never quite know if any of these businesses are still in business that are featured in these 20 year old issues... but I like to dream they are and they still look exactly as they are depicted in the pages of Victoria.
The ensemble above is one of my all time favorites ever featured in Victoria. I would 100% wear this now and I dare to dream of finding pieces like these to grace the Adored Vintage shop!
Curious about collecting your own back issues? I found some of them on eBay and Etsy but mostly I found them at different antique malls and I was lucky enough once to have a friend give me a box of issues many of which I was still missing!
