A Study on Ethical Consumerism x Oliviabynature

Hey hippies! I was recently asked to help Olivia with her dissertation. She’s looking into the effectiveness of high street shops introducing vintage concessions, and the impact this could have on encouraging people to shop more ethically. Naturally, this is right up our street being ethical traders and all, so I thought I’d share my […]

Set in the North-East of England, it brings together the best in sustainable living and eco-friendly small businesses from this neck of the woods and beyond.

Indian Summer | Lookbook

Hello hippies, A few days ago I took a cycle out to catch the evening sunshine. I just needed to. Round the back of our house there are cycle paths and if you go just over a mile out you come out onto open fields on one side, a motorway on the other, and sky up […]

Behind the Scenes for Indian Summer

Hello hippies, We wanted to get one last summery shoot done before the autumn sets in. So, last week we did a photoshoot! We set up two beautiful sets in our garden. We made a DEN! Using throws and cushions and ornaments from our house, and another set using a blanket box surrounded by mama’s […]

Recent Makes | June-August

Hello hippies, We have been so so busy this summer. Although plenty of reworked has been getting done, making regular blog posts to collect and showcase it all has been slack. Oops!

Behind the Scenes for Patchouli Garden

Hey hippies, As I touched on in a recent post, I am totally loving getting back into organising proper photoshoots complete with models and photographers. Recently the wonderful Becky Broodbakker got in touch about collaborating with Adorned. She’s primarily a 35mm film photographer, with a love of all things boho and 70s (both myself and her genuinely […]

All in a Daze Work

Hello hippies! One of the things that I enjoy doing most for Adorned is making! The problem these days is there’s not enough time in the day to even attempt half the ideas in my head. Which also means the pile of stock I have to rework gets bigger and bigger, and the bag of […]

Witches In The Woods

Hello hippies, As a small business it can be tough to keep on top of things. Sourcing and reworking gorgeous garments, orders, ordering, countless runs to the Post Office, as well as accounts, piles of receipts, the list goes on. In the past year or so our clothing photography I feel has taken a little […]
