Exciting news, friends! Adeline's Attic Vintage is going to be integrating over the coming months into a business partnership known as The Moon River Mercantile Co., which will have a brick and mortar shop front in Edmonton, as well as an Etsy shop! In support of this endeavour, I have begun sourcing some exciting vintage stock. My latest finds? These gorgeous 1920s hats!! Please follow Moon River Mercantile on Facebook for the latest info on our shop opening and our upcoming Etsy listings! Also, if you are local to the Edmonton area and/or you or anyone you know has vintage clothing and accessories (1900s to 1960s, ideally) you are looking to offload, we are accepting items on consignment, so please contact us via the above links to arrange an appointment (we do house calls!).

I have always been drawn to a balance of substance and style, both in people and things, and my relationship with vintage and the online vintage community are no exception. With this in mind, I thought I would share some pages that have pleased me due to their self-reflective attempt to consider some of the larger issues that "underpin" and complicate the unabashed aesthetic adoration many of us vintage gals have for various eras from the past. From the day I began my own vintage blog and fashion journey a few years ago, I have found it important to regularly revisit, debate, and discuss just what it means to be a 21st century woman wearing vintage clothing, and the pleasures and perils thereof. I'd love to hear your own thoughts in relation to such topics after you've browsed these other great, thought-provoking pages.
- "Why Do You Wear Vintage?" by The Glamorous Housewife
- "Intimidate at Will" by Ruby Armoire
- "Can We Be Too Nostalgic?" by Lena at Queens of Vintage
Also, I could not live without regular perusals of "Worn Through: A Journal of Fashion from an Academic Perspective" and I pretty much can't believe I didn't find the blog, "A l'allure Garconniere" until recently.
