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!

Bestow A Kiss | A Shop Update

Oh how I adore vintage lingerie from the 1920s and the 1930s. The details are so sweet, so delicate, so very feminine. I always have a hard time listing vintage lingerie in the shop and I think because I get so attached to all these lovely things. I used to wear them to bed, but unfortunately tore quite a few. These delicate beauties are really just meant for lounging around in (preferably with a cocktail)…not tossing and turning in your sleep.

Salonnière | A Vintage Shop Update

I continue to read The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. and you can probably tell many of the product names in todays vintage lingerie shop update was inspired by the French impress who married Napoleon Bonaparte.

Isn’t this nightgown so very dreamy? Lately I have been sleeping in vintage slips. It is nice to wake up and see one’s very disheveled reflection in a pretty lace decorated number and think “Well, at least my nightgown is pretty.”

Today’s vintage shop update featured lingerie and loungewear from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. I sometimes forget how many of these pretty things I have in my stockroom and then I come across them and go “OH! I think it’s time to put these in the shop!”

Vintage lingerie & Morning Coffee

I’ll be quite honest, I’ve been stressed lately. And it’s OK. I actually don’t stress out about things that often, but recently, even for me, I’m feeling a lot on my plate.

So, naturally, I retreat into pretty beautiful things. It relaxes me. It calms me down. It allows me to make sense of chaos I can’t quite grapple right now.

A desire to minimize, clean, and organize is bubbling up within me. And Spring still seems so far away but it will be here very soon (but not soon enough!)

Vintage Lingerie | Something Delicate, Something Blue

Ladies, Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us if mainstream retail America have not knocked you over the head with it yet. Instead of red, pink, and white…why not try French blue, ecru, and antique ivory for Valentine’s Day evening wear?

Recently I photographed several antique and vintage lingerie and boudoir evening pieces. I’ll be adding these into the shop this week so you’ll have it in plenty of time before Valentine’s Day!
