We Heart Vintage Blog



Voted one of the top ten vintage blogs by Vintage Search, We Heart Vintage is bursting with news, brilliantly researched features and fascinating photo galleries, all cleverly divided into eras spanning the 1900s to the 1980s. It's quite extraordinary how much variety it's creator, Mary, has packed into each era, and if you love vintage this blog will keep you enthralled for hours! This is what Mary has to say:

"Hi, I’m Mary, a mum, web designer and vintage-addict from a small village in the UK. This blog has become my personal obsession, and if you like it even a fraction as much as I do, I’ll be delighted! Got something to say? Get in touch!

We Heart Vintage is about my three favourite things, vintage fashion, photography and cinema. I’m a sixties child at heart, but also adore the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and 70s. I haven’t managed to re-embrace the 80s yet, my teenage memories of batwing jumpers and blue mascara are just too fresh.

When in doubt I ask myself ‘What would Deborah Kerr do?' (something stylish no doubt – she seemed to cope beautifully with any social situation)."

The Vintage Tea Party Year

Vintage queen, Angel Adoree is back with more retro recipes, styling tips and advice to help you host spectacular tea parties all through the year.

The Vintage Tea Party Year

If ever there was a beautiful, fiery red head that knew how to bring all the glam of the golden years to life, it's Angel Adoree. Now our vintage siren has written down her well-honed insight so that everyone can share the magic of this timeless era anywhere and for any occasion.

Angel's eye for beautiful things began at the age of thirteen when she started acquiring fur jackets, jewelled bags and glamorous hats from the vintage eras. A market stall followed and when the stall couldn't cope anymore, Angel moved to a big converted school house in Bethnal Green. It was here in 2001 that she launched 'The Vintage Experience' where Angel offered advice, styling and hand-picked vintage delights for her clients - as well as providing them with delicious cakes!

The Vintage Experience lasted for seven years. When this could grow no more, the Vintage Patisserie brand was born. Angel Adoree appeared on BBC Two's Dragon's Den in 2010 and instantly became the face to remember when she was offered £100k investment from Deborah Meaden and Theo Paphitis for developing her website and business, The Vintage Patisserie - www.vintagepatisserie.co.uk.
