Vintage Shop Update | Path To Soubise

It’s 60 degrees fahrenheit here in Portland, and we had a hard time coming in the studio to work instead of frolicking around in fields. Instead, we had a short picnic at the park next to the studio, so we can give you a shop update! Filled with some lingerie, both vintage and modern, and dresses!

During World War One and Two, as men were sent to war, women were needed to help out in factories and farms. Today’s vintage style notes is inspired by the Land Girls! The ladies who ended up working on farms. Their clothes were often neutrals, browns and greens, colors we at Adored Vintage love!

We put together a little list of things you need to be a Land Girl:

  • overalls or trousers
  • hair twisted up with a scarf
  • waist belts
  • baskets
  • collared shirts underneath sweaters
  • knee high socks
  • brimmed hat
  • leather boots

There you have it! Tag us in your Land Girl photos on Instagram! If you don’t follow us yet, our moniker is @adoredvintage.

Vintage Style Notes | Teddy Girls

Find it in the shop: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

If you know The Beatles, I’m sure you know of Teddy Boys. But did you know there were Teddy Girls? In case you didn’t, let me give you a little brief. Teddy Boys were a 1950s subculture in England. You can say they were post-war punks. After the war, there was an abundance of vintage Edwardian suits, and the youth started wearing them.

Their style was influenced by Edwardian dandies. Teddy Girls, also known as Judies, were their female counterparts. They wore blazers over collared shirts, neck scarves, secretary bows, velvet, brooches, straw hats, and Edwardian hairstyles. The most important part of their style, however, is their attitude. They were rebellious young ladies. Teddy Girls were daughters of working class immigrants and at the age of 14 or 15 they often left school to work in a factory, so as a response to their struggle, they grew thick skin.

What I love so much about Teddy Girls is although they were known as girl gangs and were notorious for being misfits, they didn’t wear torn up casual clothes, they were dressed up in clothing that high end Edwardian aristocrats would wear.

So, next time I’m feeling a bit rebellious, I’ll be reaching for a brooch and and tweed blazer, not fishnets and studded mini skirts (which I actually don’t even own!).

Vintage Monday Muse | Women of Art

The largest inspirations for Adored Vintage shoots and Lookbooks come from old paintings and drawings of women. I can spend hours upon hours browsing through these old paintings. Not only were their lives and garments so romantic, they have such a special essence to the way they sit, stand, or just do things. I love how graceful and lovely they look even while sitting upon rocks, gathering hay, or tossing a salad. These are our ultimate style/hair/squad/life goals here at AV.
