Shall We Dance | A Shop Update

Vintage Clothing Shop | Adored Vintage

The recent shop update is quite festive without being too literal. Lots of embroidery and beaded details and lovely holiday appropriate fabrics of satins and velvets. I adore this vintage 1940s coat, the color is really gorgeous and I don’t think my photos do it justice. It’s like a golden mustard color with a hint of olive.

Blushing December | A Shop Update

newarrivals-adoredvintage-124126

The shop has lots of new vintage arrivals this December in soft pastel hues (and a few neutrals, always my favorite) I especially adore some of the romantic details like the pink lace dress with the rhinestone hearts and the rose and musical notes print on the vintage 40s rayon dress.

A Shop Update | Sunflower Variety

vintage-1960s-yellow-sundress

Finally getting back into the swing of regular vintage shop updates and getting into a routine. How long has it been since I’ve moved? (Four months…) And you know, the kind of crazy thing is, as soon as I feel like I’m smooth sailing, things are going to get shaken up again. I just don’t think smooth sailing is in the cards for me.

Anyhow… Lots of new updates in the SHOP this week! And I’ll be adding peeks of what’s coming soon this evening!

A Shop Update | Merry Winter

Guess what! It’s snooooowing in Portland. Well, more like ICING. I just see tons of hail and small beady balls of ice. You know I can’t help but wish it were warmer outside so I would actually venture from the warm comfort of my home (and this steamy mug of apple cider next to me…mmmm)

Today’s shop update is small, but quite cheerful considering the weather. Which is your favorite?

A Shop Update | Banks of Moss

Adored Vintage Shop Update

I am thoroughly enjoying the change of seasons. The other day I was so excited to go rake leaves! Am I aware the novelty of THAT will wear off…yes, of course! But how fun is it to be excited about doing something so trivial!

To say the adjustment to living in Oregon has been good is the smallest of it. I drive around the city thinking to myself “I can’t believe I GET to live here!” I can honestly say I never felt like that about any other place I’ve lived in. Contrary to my Instagram account, it’s not a perfect city. I have some annoying neighbors that like to yell at each other at 2 in the morning and there’s literally a throng of children who run around shrieking outside across the street. I know, I know… they’re just BEING KIDS but pipe it down you young whipper snappers!

Anyway… last week/this week’s shop update is a little bit of summer, a little bit of fall, and a wee bit of winter. Oh, by the way, the fur collared 1930s coat caused a lot of heads to boil over on Instagram! I couldn’t believe how much hate I was getting for posting this! It’s VINTAGE. Oh, also, I don’t know if you’re aware, but I didn’t KILL it myself. Also, it’s called recycling. Also, if you have NOTHING NICE to say then don’t say it.

Apparently posting this coat warranted a follower (who I am assuming no longer follows Adored Vintage) to tell me It’s sad/disappointing I posted this and therefore she will no longer follow me. Another person said it was revolting. A few others said they were disgusted I posted it. Someone else said I was disrespecting the environment.

I tried not to take any of this PERSONALLY, but come on… I was really quite hurt by some of the comments. I do take it personally because this is my job. And it’s not just my job. It’s my heart. I LOVE what I do and pour a lot of work, time, effort, and love into what I do. And when people write mean comments, I can’t help but take it personally. Adored Vintage is ME.

I’ll have to write a longer blog post about mean Instagram comments later on (because I get them sometimes…and sometimes people write something nasty then instantly delete it so I just get a glance! WHAT!? That’s just cowardly.) I understand some things get misread so I try to take most things with a grain of salt but hey, I’m a sensitive gal and when my feelings get hurt it’s hard not to get over it.

Oh man, this blog post is turning into a downer. QUICK!! Look at the pretty clothes!! Look at the pretty clothes!
