Bianca Jagger | Vintage Style Muse

Bianca Jagger / Vintage Style Muse

I don’t really think Bianca Jagger needs any sort of introduction or explanation as to why she would be a style icon. It’s pretty OBVIOUS isn’t it?

Out of any vintage celebrity style icons, Bianca’s style is probably the closest to how I want my personal style to be. A mix of feminine, classic, ultra girlie, menswear, and wearer of hats! I do appreciate Bianca’s glamour. I sometimes think I could be more vintage glam, but I usually save my more glamorous looks for fashion related events in Portland.

Also, I’ve been told I resemble Bianca (on really good days I guess, haha!) and that’s A-OK by me because I think she is super gorgeous. My mom and her actually look more alike I think!

Edwardian, Victorian, and Romance on The Runway

Every season when the new collections are revealed on the runways of New York, Paris, and Milan I get so excited to see which designers are using vintage as their inspiration and influences. So, here are some of our favorite looks from the fashion runways with decidedly Edwardian, Victorian, and all around romantic inspirations.

At last! Pinstripe Overalls for Spring/Summer!

YOU GUYS! My collaboration design piece with Jill Yee is finally here! So naturally as soon as I received the sample I channeled my inner Land Girl and we shot photos out in a field (because where ELSE would I shoot photos…)

I present to you the Adored Vintage x Jill Yee FIELD OVERALLS!

So about A YEAR ago…yes, that long ago, I was chatting with my super cool L.A. based designer friend Jill Aiko Yee about collaborating on a design together. This has been a slow process since in the midst of this collaborating LIFE happened. Ahh, that sounds like an excuse, I know, but C’est La Vie and all that so the project got put on the back burner.

About a month ago we got back on the train again to get our collaborating design ready to go! We talked about fit, fabrics, function…

OK, can I just tell you how much I LOVE these pants? (And not just because I helped design them) They are so cute, so comfy, and can be worn a lot of different ways!

Through the design process I had told Jill I really wanted to be able to cuff the hems but not have so much fabric that the cuffs pool around my ankles. It was also important that the straps be not only adjustable, but removable. I have always appreciated when vintage garments had adjustable AND removable straps, so this was an important design element. You have the option to wear as overalls or as just classic pinstriped trousers.

The next bit was the waist band! Why an elastic waist band in front? Because it’s comfortable! And I like to eat! I normally wear all defined waistbands with skirts and dresses, but truth be told, sometimes you just want to be COMFY. The back of the waist band is defined though, which is great because then you don’t get that weird gap when you bend down or something. Also, it’s more flattering on the tush.

These pants are also in super soft pinstriped cotton. So perfect for spring. And they have POCKETS! So good!! Now, before you pre-order yours (they’ll be ready in about 2 weeks!) I leave you with this beautiful last picture which I am sure if you haven’t been convinced that you need these adorable pants in your life, this picture will be what SEALS THE DEAL!
