As promised, here is my wish list inspired by Victoria magazine. Vintage bicycles, feminine hats, and luxurious toiletries were mainstays of Victoria. You could always find classic fashion and luggage too.
The magazine also hosted a few artists- and authors-in-residence. I’ve included works by two of them: a book of poetry by Madeleine L’Engle and a book of bird and nest drawings by artist Maryjo Koch. Both are the epitome of Victoria-style slow-paced, reflective, romantic living.
Classy umbrellas, bright bistro chairs, and dress forms are also typical Victoria. I think Penhaligon’s Bluebell Soap is one of the most beautiful soaps in the world. Have you tried it? And who doesn’t love the classic elegance of Tiffany jewelry?
UPDATE 3/9/21: Some of the items pictured are no longer available, but I linked to similar products from the same manufacturers.
This is the second of a three-part Victoria magazine series. Learn how to make hats of Victoria paper silhouettes in the third post.
