As the leave continue to turn, so do our wardrobes. Today’s shop update includes a mix of cotton, wool, and silk! Pieces great for the in betweens of warmer and cooler weather. We have lots of vintage pieces, with a touch of a vintage inspired modern piece! Here are some of our favorites, and click here to see more.
We’re jumping for joy that its autumn again, because that means that some of our favorite colors are back in season. With the weather getting colder, we find ourselves leaning towards warming colors. We’ve been finding a lot of outfit ideas that include some colors we’re really loving right now on Pinterest and decided to put them all together to show you!
1. Turmeric: We are loving this color so much and noticed it’s been popping up everywhere on the runways. It’s a lovely warm goldenrod, with the perfect undertone of a yellow brown.
2. Paprika: Close to burgundy, but a bit more brown-red, we love seeing this color paired with a mustard or saffron. It’s also close to another color we love, cinnamon, it’s so rich.
3. Saffron: We love this outfit so much. It’s the perfect fall attire, a sweater and longer length skirt in a warm, orangey autumn hue.
4. Mustard: A soft, dull mustard is a perfect addition of color. Although we’re not big fans of yellow, this shade is beautiful, especially with a beige or brown.

I have a confession… My husband and I never got engagement photos taken. Officially, anyway. Did we go to our favorite place in Portland with a tripod and camera? Yes, yes we did.
However, I DO want to get portraits of Robby and I done, even though we are already married and celebrated our one year anniversary this past April. Maybe we’ll taken Anniversary portraits…
Before we took our “selfie” engagement photos, we discussed our wardrobe. Rightfully so, we both own shops! Because we were shooting in October/November (can’t recall) we wore warmer clothing and wore a couple of layers. I didn’t want us to look too Autumnal though, so we went with more neutral colors. The yellowing leaves and bare branches were indicative enough of the season. Next Spring I would love to be wearing something light, romantic, and airy while running across a field covered in wildflowers for an official session.
Anyhow, I’ve put together some romantic, feminine, and vintage inspired outfit ideas for your engagement (or Anniversary!) photo session! I will probably refer back to these myself come Spring time…

Remember our post last October on Classic Horror Scream Queens? Well, rather than highlighting ladies from the 1900s-1950s, this year we decided to feature some Scream Queens from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. These dames are not only memorable for the roles they played, but we love all their outfits throughout these films as well. In no particular order, here they are!
It’s believed that Shelley Duvall’s time on the set of The Shining was what pushed her to be the recluse she’s said to be today. She had a taxing, challenging time as Wendy Torrance, as one can see through the behind-the-scenes video Stanley Kubrick’s daughter, Vivian, made for The Shining. Despite all that, Wendy Torrance’s outfits are some of my all-time favorites in horror films. I love the 70s inspired mountain look. Milena Canonero, the costume designer, lead an outstanding career dressing almost all Kubrick’s films, as well as later designing costumes for Wes Anderson films.
Oh, Sissy Spacek, another strange actress from the 70s we admire. I remember first watching Carrie when I was eight years old. My cousins and I rented it from the local video store and all squished on the couch together. I honestly don’t remember much about the movie, but that it was probably far too violent for my parents to approve. Now when I watch Carrie, I notice the wardrobe. I love her mom’s nightgown and the simple silk gown she wears to prom.
And last, we have Sheryl Lee as the beloved Laura Palmer. Oh, Twin Peaks, the gem of Pacific Northwest. It has all the sweaters and plaid wool skirts a girl who loves autumn could ask for. Although Sheryl Lee doesn’t have too much screen time in the show, everyone knows her face. I’m eagerly waiting for the release for the new season! It couldn’t come soon enough.

Who says pale hues and blush are just for Spring? Not me! I absolutely adore these colors all year around. I don’t know if it really makes sense to call these Autumn Wardrobe color inspiration, since I pretty much wear and advocate the wearing of above colors year around!
I am realizing more and more when making decisions for the vintage inspired clothing in the shop that I am just going to stick to my guns and only carry the color palette I really adore. So if you’re wondering why the vintage inspired clothes at Adored Vintage are decidedly “Spring-y” it’s because I think these colors SHOULD ALSO be worn in Fall. Besides, if you saw my Autumn leaves photo on Instagram today, you’ll see blush, pale peach, and muted violet show up in Autumn.
