Details & Sizing

Swinging open the doors to your lavish hotel room for the weekend, you hardly contain a squeal of excitement as you collapse onto the fine linens of your perfectly made-up bed. Giddy and starry-eyed, you sip champagne as you make your way to the vanity and choose the perfect sultry shade of lipstick to match your vintage 1920s black crushed velvet evening dress. With a brooch at the base of the V neckline and a lace collar that ties in the back, you feel in touch with your inner flapper-girl as you leave for a date with the dance floor.

Sustainable Clothing Care

From over a decade's worth of experience as a vintage clothing seller and collector, we are sharing some general care and laundering advice gleaned from women of the past. Practicing these "vintage" methods is another way to be more sustainable.

  • Wear a slip with your garments to keep your garments cleaner longer (in most cases it takes much less water/resources to launder a slip than it does a garment)
  • Wear your garments more than once before laundering
  • Use cold water to launder your garments, hot water can deconstruct the fibers of your garments more and also can cause shrinkage.
  • If using a machine, only wash full loads of laundry
  • Hang garments to dry (every Adored Vintage girl loves seeing clothes on a line!) Dryers can really be rough on your garments (that lint trap is literally bits of your clothes as it slowly falls apart!)
  • Spot clean garments immediately
  • Hand wash your clothing as often as possible.
  • Learn simple repair and mend skills to increase the longevity of your garments.
