Bonjour mes amies! I have been moving the studio around again (I tend to do this quite often) and I really like the new set up. It’s been so lovely to get back into the swing of things after a pretty awful July (it is my least favorite month, so many annoying things always happen to me in July!) Anyhow, I’m back on track on focusing on positive, happy, and beautiful things!
I love that my work studio has started to feel more like home. Of course, there is much more to be done…however, all in due time!
Recipe: Bundt Cake de Calabaza from La Cocina de Carolina.
‘Tis the season of bundt cakes, and we’ve been really loving them, each molding being so intricate and an art piece within itself. It’s so much fun seeing all the different designs of vintage bundt cake moldings, and their curves and dips being brought out by silky glaze.
Movie: Funny Face (1957) by Stanley Doden
A film featuring Audrey Hepburn (an AV muse) who is discovered as a bookshop employee to then go to France and be a fashion model, all in the 1960s. There is hardly anything more perfect! So many great outfits, and it features an incredible dance scene.
Song: Little Weaver Bird by Molly Drake
Oh, the lovely Molly Drake. If you’ve never heard of Molly Drake, she’s the mother of Nick Drake and never released any of her songs during her lifetime. It wasn’t until the death of Nick Drake that her music was then released and started gaining recognition! Which, is pretty unbelievable from how talented of a songwriter she was. Put on this tune and get lost in her sweet melody Sunday night as you relax and finish up your week.
This week we’ve been really liking romantic hues, lace and embroidered details, and comfortable yet girly fits with a nice flow.

We’ve been wanting to host an open house since we moved into the studio space last month, and a date was finally set! Saturday, December 5th from 11-4!
December is coming quick, and we have already started prepping.We have so many ideas! Last week we went out and foraged some greens and dried hydrangea to make a garland for a photo booth area.
We’re giving away a little gift for the first amount of people who show up (more specifics on that coming soon), are going to have a little shop area, desserts, and some other special things! Follow AV on Instagram if you want to stay more in tune for more details, our moniker is @adoredvintage.
We are so excited and can not wait to meet all of you!
