A Girl Called Rodellee.....
Its that time again! Time to meet another creative girl.
This fortnight i want to introduce Rodellee , who runs a gorgeous online Vintage clothing shop 'Adore Vintage'
She seems to find the best vintage pieces and then styles them up to look even more amazing!
Im also a huge fan of her blog, i get SO inspired by her all posts
that I check in almost daily...

Im thrilled to have interviewed Rodellee for my blog series on Creative woman...

Welcome Rodellee!
What is currently inspiring you? - 1960s French films + music, Clara Bow, and the book "Sex With Kings" by Eleanor Herman, an absolute must read! There are so many women in history I must know more about now as a result of reading this book!

Name 3 things you couldn't live without right now? - Coffee, iPhone, and my "new" vanity, a gift from my mother-in-law from the 1930s.
(me - sounds fantastic, i hope you'll share it with us on your blog!!)

Rodellee, your love of fashion is so passionate, can you define to us, your personal style? - It's a bit granny and a bit French. I often get told by friends (and friends of friends) that I remind them of their grandmothers in their stylish pasts. I really enjoy mixing the very old with the not so old (early 20th century paired with the 1960s). Throughout the years my clothes have definitely gotten more "beige", I can't seem to get enough pretty and delicate cream and nude colored blouses!

* Favourite colour (or colour combinations)? - Nude, tan, camel, white, navy, and black.
* Favourite Smell/Frangrance? - Lollia Eu de Parfum - Lavender and Honey - It's so soft and lovely with a bit of sweetness and powdery after notes.

* What do you love about your City? - How diverse it is! I was a bit perplexed about moving to Los Angeles, I definitely got suckered into the perception that it was going to be a bottle blonde, skinny minis, dog eat dog kind of place and I thought oh goodness, where am I going to fit into this chaotic label obsessed city?
And I moved here and it wasn't like that at all!
That world does exist, but it's easy to avoid and only in certain pockets of LA. There are so many little shops to visit (plenty of beautiful vintage boutiques for all budgets!), tiny art galleries where the owners are super nice and have their pets in tow, tons of restaurants to satisfy any foodie, and plenty of culture that extends past what you would expect if you watch a lot of television.
I recently went to the L.A. Food Truck Festival which was amazing and something you can't really do anywhere else yet.

Finally, Do you have a favourite quote you'd like to share with us?
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; What is essential is invisible to the eye. - The Little Prince.

  8. Hi Anastasia! Found you via the BYW forum and course!

    Lovely to *meet* a fellow Aussie blogger, and such a fab blog too.

    I love your 'A Girl Called...' series, what a great idea!

    That apartment above is gorgeous, and Rodellee's favourite perfume sounds divine... I love both of those scents (lavendar and honey) and am on the hunt for a new perfume, so will search it out!

    Linda. :)
