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.

Amid the Gusts | A Shop Update

We have more autumn pieces for you gals (including some that would be great staples) and a bit of jewelry! Often times when I sift through outfits, I like to imagine where I would go in them, and the things I would do. These definitely have a strolling by the river on a cloudy day while drinking pumpkin lattes feel. What do you see yourself doing in this collection?

Style Inspiration | Summer Romance in the Garden

Adored Vintage | Romantic Summer Garden Inspiration

As the temperature rises, so do the frequency of our daydreams of lazying about a garden with the peak of summer blooms heavily perfuming the air.

It is no secret that we at Adored Vintage love all things soft, romantic, and just plain lovely so we’ve gathered some romantic summer garden inspired looks for you. When we think of a summer romance that takes place in a garden we envision ourselves dressed pretty lace dresses, delicate blouses, and colors that look like they’ve been faded by the balmy summer sun.

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.
