Ode to Vintage Victoria: June 1994

I so look forward to perusing through a monthly issue of vintage Victoria magazine to share with you dear friends it's wonderful pages and how they inspire me so! I missed May and June is nearly over (where is the time going??) so I snapped these shots really quickly of a lovely June issue from 1994. This is probably one...

Ode to Vintage Victoria: Issue April 1994

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...

A Peek Inside Tasha Tudor's Garden

A Peek Inside Tasha Tudor's Garden

If you have been following Adored Vintage for awhile, then it is no great secret how much Tasha Tudor has inspired and influenced me. I can't exactly recall when I first saw or heard of Tasha Tudor, though I do recall first seeing a photo of her in her garden and thought someone had colorized a photo from the 1800s....

Pretty Films: A Room With A View

Pretty Films: A Room With A View

Aesthetically this film is one of my favorites, it has so many scenes I draw so much inspiration from. Based on the E.M. Forster novel of the same name, the film "A Room With A View" by James Ivory is a period film about a young woman named Lucy Honeychurch (Helena Bonham Carter) who on a summer trip to Florence...

J'adore: Recent Instagram Favorites

I noticed that a lot of my recent favorites on Instagram all share a common theme... soft and muted blue! There are two particular shades of blue I really adore... soft faded blues like chambray or a French blue and then deep indigo and navy blues. For the most part, it's always cooler tones of blue. I've never been particularly fond of...

Ode to Vintage Victoria: Issue March 1990

It is officially Day 3 of "Safer At Home" order in Oregon though things have been a bit upside down for my lil ole shop for about 2 weeks total now. My team and I are all slowly adjusting to working more from home. And since I am working more from home (which I haven't done in over 5 years...

Women In Art / The Florist & A Bit of Floral Language

Women In Art / The Florist & A Bit of Floral Language

It will be no surprise to you that flowers is where I draw much of the inspiration for Adored Vintage as well as art and fashion history. I love paintings that depict flowers, women, landscapes, and interiors. So when any combination of these things are in a painting, I am instantly smitten.  Below are some beautiful paintings mostly from the 19th century of women florists or...

A Poetic Summer

A Poetic Summer

Summer is here at last. A season to revel in the profound freedom of more daylight and energy from the sun whilst simultaneously basking in the slow hazy filled days. For me, this means both a season of doing, and a season of meaningful observation. What better way to soak up the simple wonders of summer but through the artful...
