A Short Spell Inside the Adored Vintage Atelier

Adored Vintage | Vintage Work Atelier in Portland, Oregon

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!

Friday Favorites

fridayfavoritesRecipe: 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.

Adored Vintage Lookbook Autumn 2012

It’s Throwback Thursday! I never know what to post for #tbt because I have ZERO baby photos of me and maybe a handful of adolescent photos all of which I can’t locate. So while  I perused through ye olde computer files I came across the first lookbook I styled and photographed for Adored Vintage when I decided to take this full time 2 years ago!

I really love that this Autumn Vintage lookbook is still relevant to what Adored Vintage looks like today. It’s nice to know that the feeling of Adored Vintage hasn’t changed much. It’s romantic, pretty, inspired by flowers, and unfussy.

What’s left

Most of the back stock vintage clothes have been packed away and neatly labeled for the new home. I was trying to get motivated enough to photograph some new vintage arrivals but instead I walked around and photographed the studio in it’s current state. It still feels very, very full and there is still plenty to do! However, seeing the sparse blank spaces allows me to let out a sigh of relief because the end is in sight.
