Was that right, did we really say film collaboration? Yes! From the mighty seed of inspired conversation between us gals at the studio sprouted the makings of a passion project that we are so excited to share with you all. Devon, our studio assistant and email mistress extraordinaire, also happens to be an actor here in Portland. Rodellee, before founding AV, collected vintage and antiques in Los Angeles and worked on sets for fashion films and photo shoots as a stylist. Naturally, together we found ourselves dreaming of a way to bring life to a simple story—a story about the beauty in life's little pleasures, the preparations one makes to welcome a new season, and the delicate nature of rekindling old friendships. While the video is still being edited, we wanted to share some photos from being on set and behind the scenes of our short film, Pages From November. Enjoy!
We got to storyboarding our concept and then began working on setting the scene. It was so much fun decorating the house, in which our characters would spend the majority of the story, with an assortment of homewares and accoutrements foraged from our personal antique collections. We picked the Sessile Dress and the With Fondness Locket from the shop for our protagonist to wear.
Pictured above is Adele (Devon Rawlings) and Theó (Faolan Teinowitz) as they share a simple meal together after more than a year of each other's absence.
Camera operator Robert Schmeltzer captures Adele daydreaming of the past as she goes about her chores.

At Adored Vintage we curate timeless and feminine vintage inspired clothing from many independent brands and makers therefore sizing can vary from each maker. To help make your shopping experience easier at Adored Vintage, we provide measurements of every size available.
Common Measurements We Take
Length: Measured from top of garment to hem
Waist: Measured across waistline then doubled
Chest: Measured armpit to armpit, in some cases doubled. For sweaters and loose fitting knits we will put "across chest (relaxed)"
Bodice (Dresses): Measured from top of garment to waist seam
Shoulders: Shoulder seam to shoulder seam
Sleeves: Shoulder seam to hem of sleeve
Hips: Measured approx 7" down from natural waistline, measured across, then doubled
How We Measure
Our garments are measured laid flat and relaxed and we may make recommendations for sizing with notes like "best for" or "best up to". We recommend comparing these measurements to a garment you already own. To do this, lay your garment on a flat surface and measure your garment with a clothing tape measure and take the necessary measurements.
On occasion we may recommend to size up or size down on certain garments. Remember, just because you are one size in one store or brand does not mean you will be the same size across the board. Pay close attention to the measurements given.
DOMESTIC RETURNS (U.S)
We offer easy returns for items in new, unworn, unaltered, unwashed condition within 7 calendar days of the delivery date of your order. You will have the following options for your return:
A) Return your product(s) for store credit. Receive the full cost of the product(s) as store credit for future use minus pre-paid return shipping label fee. B) Return your products(s) for a refund to original payment method minus a 10% processing fee and pre-paid return shipping label fee.
Once you have decided, a prepaid shipping label will be issued (for domestic returns).
PLEASE NOTE: returns must be postmarked within 7 days of return request approval, otherwise a late fee may apply.
International returns are processed the same as domestic returns but please note that all return shipping fees are the responsibility of the buyer. We are not able to provide a prepaid return shipping label as our carrier is the USPS and is not available outside of the United States.
STORE CREDIT & REFUNDS
Once we receive and process your return (please allow 4-6 business days for us to process), we will issue you your store credit / refund.
Store credit never expires and is connected to your Adored Vintage customer account, however please note that codes are automatically disabled a year after creation. If your code is disabled, please contact email@example.com and we will manually reactivate it (minus a reactivation fee).
If you make multiple returns, your store credit will always be applied to your account and act as a "store credit bank." If you have available store credit in your account, it will automatically apply to your shopping cart but you can choose to not use it at checkout if you want to "save up" your store credit.
Unfortunately, you cannot use your store credit code and a promotional discount code at the same time. This is a Shopify website policy that we do not have a work around for.
Refunds will be issued to the original payment method(s) used at checkout. Please note that if you used a combination of payment methods (e.g. credit card and store credit) the refund will be issued to each method respectively.
Returns that used store credit as payment are subject to a 10% reprocessing fee on the new store credit issued. This helps our small business recover some of the fees that we incur for the initial return and the second return using the store credit.
Returns postmarked past 7 calendar days after the return request is approved are subject to a 10% late fee.
Products purchased during a storewide sale, noted as final sale in the product description, or purchased in our Sale section or As-Is Charity Sale are all considered Final Sale and are not eligible for a return.
ITEMS THAT CANNOT BE RETURNED
All accessories (bags, belts, jewelry, socks, etc - the exception is shoes), intimates (garments in our "Intimates" department such as bralettes, robes, sleepwear, etc), bodysuits, leotards, apothecary, sundries, and consumable items that expire cannot be returned.
Shoes are returnable for store credit only. Please be mindful of trying on shoes in a carpeted area. Shoes returned showing signs of wear will incur a 25% restock fee.
We carefully inspect each product before we sell it in our shop to ensure quality. In the off chance you receive a damaged/defective item, we ask you provide photos in our return portal.
Normal wear and tear is considered "damage" and not defective, including but not limited to trying on garments that are too small therefore damaging/straining garment seams, stains from makeup, and torn seams/rips from trying on will not be accepted as they cannot be resold. Our garments go through a rigorous inspection when we receive them from our vendors (we check every single piece for flaws!)
Items that are sent back to us in damaged condition or have clearly been worn are subject to a minimum 50% restock fee and will be at our sole discretion.
We do not accept order cancellations so please shop responsibly. In certain special cases (if accidentally purchased the wrong size) we can swap out a size for you or color if you notify us before your order is fulfilled and if we have stock on hand.
When your return is approved, we issue a pre-paid shipping label for the item(s) to be returned (for domestic returns). Your shipping label is calculated only for the weight of your item(s) being returned. If you attempt to return additional items from another order using the issued shipping label, there is a very high possibility your package will get rejected by USPS and rerouted back to you. In this case you will be unable to request the return again and the sale is then considered final.
Gift cards cannot be cancelled or refunded for cash.
