Meet Rodellee: Owner of Adored Vintage

When I created a mood board for my blog redesign last year, several photos I used throughout were shot by the photographer Yvette Inufio. Other than the fact that she is from my neck of the woods (South Florida), Yvette’s photos are whimsy and fancy, which is totally me – Maddie. Her photos are like a Disney movie of ‘The Beauty and The Beast’ type with lace, flowers, and tulle thrown into the mix. Almost like a Monet but in the photographic form. When I happened upon the shop Adored Vintage, my favorite photographer was now in the form of an online vintage shop. When I sparked up a conversation with the owner, Rodellee, my favorite photographer was now in the form of a person. Just like Yvette’s photos, Rodellee is whimsy and fancy with a touch of tulle and lace. What’s most striking about her is how every chord in her life – her personality, her studio, and her products – resonate the same aura and ambiance – Grace Kelly, beauty, and poise. Please welcome her as she answers some questions and gives us a peak into her world. Thank you Rodellee! Q: Can you give a brief introduction of you and your shop, Adored Vintage? A: Hello! My name is Rodellee (sounds like Natalie) and I am the vintage loving gal behind Adored Vintage. I live in sunny California where some of my favorite Hollywood icons once glittered and sparkled. Adored Vintage is an extension of everything I adore and love and beautiful vintage clothing that sparks historical interest. It’s vintage that is accessible and completely wearable for any modern gal. Q: How did you get into selling vintage clothing? A: I’ve always adored vintage clothing and styles. My Mom sewed a lot of my clothes when I…

Interview

I’m so excited to write this post and share it with you. I’m a big Internet peruser (Internet surfer is too harsh of a word). After a day’s work, I lie in bed with a cup of Quaker oatmeal (plain flavor with a dab of honey) and peruse blog after blog and site after site. I begin on one site and somehow, after clicking numerous sidebars (they’re very addicting), my bedtime has passed, way passed. It’s a phenomenon I swear every night I won’t do yet somehow do. But my addictive perusing was stopped one night when I stumbled upon an amazing vintage shop, The Greedy Seagull. It’s an Etsy shop that sells high quality clothing and accessories from the 1940s through the 1980s. A 1950s bias cut blue nightgown, a 1950s unworn cardigan with green scalloped edges and embroidered pink roses, and a 1960s jacquard maxi coat (my absolute favorite) are just some of the wares stocking this online store. I was so smitten with the store that I just had to ask the owner of such an awesome shop for an interview. She, Giana Stanigar, kindly and quickly (she’s very prompt!) agreed. Here are her words… Tell me briefly about yourself – where you live, your family, etc. Hi, I’m Giana Stanigar and I’m the owner of The Greedy Seagull, Inc. I was born and raised in sunny Southern California in a big loud Italian/ Armenian family. My mother is a batty artist type so I grew up completely surround by crazy things and people; stacks of mismatched china, reupholstered chairs and cabinets full of vintage fabric. Oh, and two obnoxious siblings who are now my best friends! I moved to NYC almost five years ago with my boyfriend who’s now my husband. I built my business up…
