Another Covid Update

Another Covid Update

Multonomah County officially entered Phase 1 of reopening, one of the last, if not the last county to reopen in Oregon. While I am partly excited to reopen the doors of the shop, I am also pretty scared at seeing the rising new cases of Covid in the city. Many of the new cases in Oregon are centered around the...

Wardrobe Stories / Chapter 4

It's been a month since you've moved into your new apartment. Already the creaking of the old wood floors have become a familiar rhythm in your morning routine. It's only 9 in the morning but already the summer sun is pouring in through the sheer lace curtains creating a dance of lemon hued flowers and leaf shadows against the floor and...

Flowers That Bloom in Summer

Flowers That Bloom in Summer

"Flowers have always been the most important gift of beauty in our perilous and often drab existence, and from the earliest ages they have been endowed with meanings and mystic powers..." A few years ago on one of my many varied antique haunts I came across  a set of paperback books from England featuring flowers that bloom throughout the season....

As She Was: Photobooth Beauties

As She Was: Photobooth Beauties

Oh how I adore a good ole fashioned photobooth. I've never really taken the time to pen down my thoughts as to why. I suppose it is similar to the reason I adore polaroids, they are photos that live in the center realm between film and digital. Perhaps a crux between past and future. It is the real present moment. I'll muse...

Behind the Scenes, As It Were in June

Behind the Scenes, As It Were in June

On a quiet rainy afternoon in June, with Nina Simone in the background, I snapped these photos around the Adored Vintage shop and studio. I hugged the Taters. I walked around barefoot. I saw a couple gals try to come into the shop wearing floral print masks (my kind of gals!) and let them know we are probably reopening sometime in August....

New Arrivals / Gathered Summer

Floral dresses and details inspired by country and prairie styles will never go out of favor in the world of Adored Vintage and many hours are spent each week on my part to source all the pretty vintage inspired garments in the shop. Perhaps because my background has been a proprietress of vintage garments that I take great joy in...

Wardrobe Stories / Chapter 12

Romantic Vintage Prairie Inspired Style / Adored Vintage Women's Clothing Boutique

The sun begins her descent behind the softly sloping hills far ahead. You quicken your pace slightly, lifting the hem of your lace detailed dress as you step into the tall summer grass. The fabric of oxeye daisies and wispy blades of grass are ruffled by a brisk and welcomed summer breeze. The sun dips lower, a golden haze befalls the field...

Vintage Finds From the Weekend

Vintage Finds From the Weekend

I spent much of this past weekend in quiet solitude, reading, writing, learning, researching, studying... and throughout it I made an equal effort to notice and live the little things. We went to the farmer's market for the first time (hooray!) to support many local merchants and farmers. I bought armloads of peonies and other June blooms. I also went...
