This n' That, Out n' Aboot

Just stopping in to say hi and share a few fun instagram moments I snapped while out and about at a couple of Edmonton vintage fashion events, namely a Vintage Pop-Up sale I attended with Charmaine at the Bamboo Ballroom (the macarons from the Duchess Bake Shop on offer were amazing!) and the Archives Society of Alberta's Vintage Fashion Show, which Charmaine, Charly, Erin and I vintage-d up for (we even got asked to be part of the exhibit for a brief and unexpected moment!).  What have you been up to?

Charmed by Charmaine, La Flaneuse

This past month or so I have had the pleasure of becoming friends with La Flaneuse Charmaine. Imagine my elation when she recently agreed to serve as a shop model for me. Here are some of the results of our photographic and vintage fashion collaboration.  Links to items featured are below the photos.

Kay Petre: Colenimo A/W 2013

With contemporary fashion collections, I'm almost always too late to the party.  I only juuuust discovered Colenimo's A/W 2013 collection. If you follow my blog, you know I've featured Colenimo collections before (here, here,  and here) reason being that the designer seems to perennially return to 1930s themes or women for inspiration.  The A/W collection was inspired by 1930s Canadian-born race car driver, Kay Petre. I must say I'm digging the outerwear!!

Attic Activities

Lots of interesting stuff going on behind the scenes here at Adeline's Attic Vintage. Of particular note: I recently acquired a sizeable vintage collection from a local woman who had been collecting for several decades.  I'm also working on my photography with the help of my model/friend, Charly.  Have a peek at some of the latest!
