Love for Crimson and Clover and meeting other bloggers

Crimson and Cover is one of the best, most reasonably priced vintage stores in Sacramento.
I've scored so many little treasures over the past year and even my husband enjoys a C&C visit.
The two designers, collectors, fashionista's who own the place are wonderful ladies, here are their blogs, http://porkchoprules.blogspot.com and http://flaminghagfolkwear.blogspot.com.
They just hosted a fashion blogger meet-up, organized by The Citizen Rosebud (comprehensive fashion commentary) and on Saturday and I had the privilege to be invited. It was there I found the most beautiful purple-polka-dot vintage dress. The boots are from Shipwreck in Eureka, Ca. My mom gave me the pearls.

I've loved purple since I decided it was my favorite color 20 years ago. At the time all my friends' favorite color was pink, and so I chose purple to be different. I realized I didn't have a purple dress and needed one. So this dress was perfect, especially after getting this beautiful purple accented Pork Chop necklace earlier this week.
