Two words began to define the August issues of Victoria
You felt as if someone special and someone you admired were taking you aside to share with you their personal shopping sources and secrets.
Not only that – but, they were also very feminine, romantic finds.
|Vol 2-No 3: Introduced us to Susan Lieberman's Paris 1900 in|
Santa Monica, CA.
|In this issue we are introduce to 'a timeless point of view' in a reverence|
for romance and tradition in a lace-filled home.
|"'Divine,' she kept saying. 'Divine. She couldn't pass a fern or a berry|
without wanting to know its pedigree and insisted on getting the Latin
name," Humphrey Bogart said of Katharine Hepburn. Here a tribute to
a woman who is herself divine'".
|Ahhh, what a wonderful combination. Leslie Caron, Roses and Paris. Later|
Victoria would regularly celebrate Paris, but in this issue we have a glimmer
a taste of good things to come.
|A Shop of One's Own, Victoria features in this issue a few of the many|
women who dreamed of owning a business all their own.
This issue is jam-packed with several lovely shops owned by
women of Kindred Spirits.
|This month again features 'enterprising women' 'Sharing Hands and Hearts'.|
In this issue shops from Santa Fe to the Bombay Company are explored.
|Linens, clothing, pillows and antique buttons are but a few of the|
topics covered in this issue. Again, Victoria covers a number of
entrepreneurial women in, "Hearts and Hands".
|This issue features some 'Flower Shops with Personal Flair'.|
As well as 'Cooking with Nora" stating that, 'proof that
simple, fresh ingredients are the most versatile of all'.
|'"The Business of Bliss" a salute to achieving women from coast to coast';|
Essential Whites; Habersham; Chef marie Ricco; and Bone Bouche Catering
are but some of the shops and lovely delights covered in this issue.
|This year's issue shows a bit of a change in the look and order of|
Victoria. Within this issue remains some of the original lure - but, not all.
Again, this is an issue filled with articles celebrating women and
the "Business of Bliss".
|This issue of Victoria looks to me like someone trying to wear someone else's|
clothing. In this issue our dear friend Nancy Lindemeyer is no longer the
Editor in Chief. Articles are segmented into 'Departments and Features'.
