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.
