Vintage Inspiration | To Be a Bride

I love looking at old photos of brides. The photographs themselves were fairly simple back then. Just a full length portrait of the bride wearing her dress, sometimes with a bouquet or her man next to her. Although the photographs were no fuss, the dresses, accessories and even flowers were so lavishly decadent.

Look at the lace on this dress! Holy moly. I could stare at this photo for hours. The sleeves are so beautiful, and the light hits it so perfectly. I love how her hair is up with adornments. It reminds me of the work of our sister bridal adornment company, Esther Jean. If you love this vintage bride look, you would love her work.

Look at these huge calla lillies! And this veil! Goodness.

Although this dress looks simple and white, if you look close enough you can see it has lace throughout. I love the high neck on it. Vintage bridal bouquets were so beautiful. I love how they cascade with greens and blooms. I’m glad that natural look is coming back. Another one of Adored Vintage’s sister companies is RUE ANAFEL. They specialize in old world and vintage inspired floral design.

Vintage Shop Update | Home Goods

Spring cleaning often starts as attempting to purge and get rid of things I’m not in love with, but ends up turning into an excuse to find more beautiful things to fill my home with. You may be the same. If you haven’t seen, we have been busy bees here at the studio photographing and posting home goods onto the website. If you haven’t seen yet, hop over and take a look!

One of my favorite things we’ve posted is this flower guide from the 1920s. The illustrations are all so beautiful. It could be a coffee table book, or would even perfect for cutting out the pages and hanging them on the wall or mailing certain flowers to friends.

Another one of my favorite new listings is these copper bundt pan. It’s a nice, small size. I love how copper looks in my kitchen mixed with wood and cast iron.

Vintage Shop Update | 1970s Folklore

bohominstrels-29This week’s shop arrival is inspired by being able to spend time outside in the warmer weather and the flowers blooming all around us (flowers are involved, always!). Many of our new arrivals have been very 70s folklore, pieces that make us want to prance around a meadow, play ukulele by the river, and lounge comfortably in cotton and floral prints.
