Adeline’s Attic- handpicked vintage clothing

Adeline’s Attic is an Edmonton based vintage clothing shop. Adeline’s Attic has been open for 5 years; in fact, this month marks their 5th birthday! Adeline’s Attic opened shop in 2009 on Etsy and you can still find her and all her gorgeous vintage there.

Vintage loving owner, Jill, who looks like shes stepped right off the Atlantic boardwalk, has a deep appreciation for vintage aesthetic. Her shop carries a wide range of wares, ranging from the 1920s to the 1990’s. The bulk of her collection falls within in the 20s to 50s, with a wide variety of styles and sizes.

Jill asked me if I would like to model some of her vintage pieces and with delight, I said I would love to. As a vintage loving girl living in a modern world I have difficulty finding vintage pieces that fit my waist. It is common to find pieces with a 25-27″ waist, however 29-30″ is much rarer. Adeline’s Attic carries a a ton of different sizes, which makes me oh so happy, as I would love to add more vintage pieces to my wardrobe.

I love the colour of this gorgeous set ( jacket and dress). This dress felt so lovely on and would be a great addition to any gals wardrobe.

This skirt also fit like it was made for me… vintage cashmere, how fantastic! I have had a very hard time finding vintage items that fit me like they should. All of the pieces I modeled fit like a dream! I have a feeling I will be visiting Adeline’s Attic quite a bit, especially as Viva Las Vegas approaches ( a little birdie told me she has some 50’s and 60’s swimsuits to sell)

Head over to Adeline’s Attic on Etsy to shop some drool worthy vintage pieces. You can also find her on facebook where you can keep up to date on new items added to the shop, see photos from shoots, and hear any news.

A big thank you to Jill, from Adeline’s Attic for asking me to model her amazing vintage dresses and separates.

xoxo
