I first came across these images of Beautiful People Spring’s 2016 collection on Pinterest (as most of us do these days) and I immediately fell in love with the look of these ensembles. Most likely because I already own similar looking items in my own wardrobe and I am drawn to things that are already familiar to me. But also because there is something a bit English about them, something classic and all together proper. From the Vogue article:
“Spring 2016 inspirations: Idyllic modesty, femininity, and ’50s couture influences with corseted silhouettes…”
So, no wonder I’m drawn to it. It has obvious vintage influence! It’s finally warming up around here so I’m looking forward to replicating these looks with things I already own. A straw boater hat, a classic trench coat, a plaid skirt, a black top, and a “non-print” print dress.
This outfit above is such a perfect every day outfit. My friends and I have been talking about how so many women these days just wear workout clothes everywhere they go. I don’t get it. Why wear workout clothes if you’re not going to exercise? Is it pure laziness? When you stock your wardrobe with simple basics aside from just tee shirts and jeans, it’s really not that difficult to look perfectly put together in 10 minutes tops.

As the leave continue to turn, so do our wardrobes. Today’s shop update includes a mix of cotton, wool, and silk! Pieces great for the in betweens of warmer and cooler weather. We have lots of vintage pieces, with a touch of a vintage inspired modern piece! Here are some of our favorites, and click here to see more.
I’m expanding the collection of vintage inspired wares from just pretty vintage inspired dresses to vintage inspired jewelry!
Of course, this is my first real go at this, so I’m hoping it’s well received. Personally, I am in love with every piece! I love how delicate and minimal these pieces are. I’m not one for statement jewelry, so I wanted to bring in vintage inspired jewelry that is light and feminine to go with the vintage inspired clothing now at Adored Vintage.
Admittedly, vintage inspired jewelry is kind of a loaded statement. What exactly is vintage inspired jewelry anyway? I suppose there are certain pieces from the past that define an era for jewelry. Most notably long beaded necklaces immediately make you think of the 1920s and a string of pearls makes you think of the 1950s.
I think for me, vintage inspired jewelry is more about encapsulating a feeling of vintage. Classic, timeless, and a little whimsical.
The vintage inspired locket necklaces have their obvious references. A bit of Art Deco details, filigree, and they have an antiqued finish.
Vintage inspired rings will be a bit more challenging. I haven’t been able to find a lot of pretty ones I like. Perhaps it is because the rings I tend to gravitate towards are those from the 1930s and earlier… ahh well, I will continue searching high and low for you vintage loving gals!

The weather has cooled off recently and it has felt more like Autumn than summer in my neck of the woods. Autumn is my favorite season and already I am scouring the internet for inspiration for my Fall wardrobe! I know I have said this before, but it bears repeating that I don’t really follow modern day fashion. Which is probably why I am profoundly in love with Luisa Beccaria. Their designs just understand my vintage loving heart so much, but it’s for a modern gal. Not for one who wants to go about appearing as if she wear in costume.
The Fall 2015 RTW collection (I know, it’s 2016…again, does it matter with vintage inspired fashion?) has so many vintage influences throughout! From the 1920s, the 1930s, the 1940s, and the 1950s! How many details have you noticed from all these eras?
I also love the grey and deep blue color scheme. The royal blue highlights are not my favorite, but royal blue (or jewel tones in general) are colors I really don’t care for. I ADORE, ADOOOre the berets in each of these ensembles and the fishnet tights! I am DEFINITELY going to wear fishnet tights this upcoming Autumn season!

I recently started following designer Luisa Beccaria’s Instagram account and I just need to spend some time and really gush over how absolutely beautiful it all is. Feminine, dreamlike, and oh so romantic. As you know, I don’t really give a fig about modern day fashion so I never keep up with it. However, when I do find something I like, I tend to dive full in, obsess a bit, and I’m a fan for life.
The runway looks from Luisa Beccaria Spring 2016 RTW just had me all goo goo eyed! It’s so very, very girlie! I was actually a little surprised how drawn I was to this collection because the colors are much brighter than I usually prefer.
