Vintage Victoria Magazine | On A Gilded Afternoon

Vintage Victoria Magazine | July 1990 and July 1993

If you’ve been reading my blog for a bit now, it will not be new news to you that I adore Victoria magazine. Vintage Victoria magazine when the magazine was under the leadership of Nancy Lindemeyer. The two issues I am featuring are two vintage July issues.

The July 1990 Victoria issue is one of my favorites! This issue has so many beautiful things to look at and it features an editorial about the Art Deco Society in California hosting their 1920s event, “A Gatsby Summer Affair” which is still running! Gatsby Summer Afternoon is hosted every year, and this year is the 32nd year the party has been raging on.

Last year, my friends and I attended the New Deal Weekend hosted by Julie of Fab Gabs Vintage and we had such enormous fun! This year the party is being hosted in Seattle which I am so sad to be missing. Perhaps next year! You can see our photos from last year’s event in this blog post: 1920s & 1930s Prohibition Picnic at Historic Overlook House

The other July issue featured is July 1993. I’ll say it isn’t one of my favorite issues since there aren’t a lot of fashions in it. But there is a wonderful feature on Margaret Howell (photo above) and the style and branding looks slightly different than the current look. I love seeing how brands grow and change.

Now, I know it’s from the 1990s… but you cannot deny how absolutely beautiful this magazine is!

New Arrivals | Vintage Swimwear

Adored-Vintage-Vintage-Swimwear-Inspiration

As the summer days get longer and hotter, all we want to do is frolic on the beach. Whether we are surfing or just soaking up the sun, we love doing it with our friends. There is nothing better than the sound of the waves crashing and sand between our toes.

And, of course, it is best to do it in style. The bright colors of our new vintage swimsuits really invoke this sense of summer fun.

Here are two other styles:

VINTAGE 1990S TEAL FLORAL HIGH CUT LEOTARD
VINTAGE 1940S WHITE JANTZEN MAILLOT
