style this

like the freewheeling boho style of the "free people" brand?  try this vintage "all that jazz" sweater dress, fringed floral scarf, one of a kind necklace by porkchop rules, vintage hat, and vintage harness boots, all currently for sale at crimson & clover.

we are busting at the seams with vintage and handmade goodness at the shop right now.  freshly picked vintage, new markdowns on the packed sale rack out front, loads of one of a kind handmade's all just waiting for you.
earlier in the week i was inspired by a pictorial in the current issue of american vogue that featured tweeds, so i pulled a few pieces from our racks to style....then i kept going and put together a couple more ensembles that capture a little of what a couple of those old favorite catalogs seem to offer.  is it us imitating them? probably more like us imitating them imitating us, as designers and brands are constantly copying being inspired by vintage and thrift store finds.  read a bit of one woman's firsthand account here.  in the end, it is clothing, and it should be fun.  so smile, and put on something good today.

tweeds and pattern mixing?  check out "for king and country" in november 2010 vogue, and try our vintage Pendleton blazer, vintage plaid skirt, vintage leopard print belt, plaid fleece scarf, and vintage zip boots. 
if you favor the modern romance of the anthropologie catalog, try a vintage "Byer, too!" dress, vintage tapestry belt, vintage cardigan, one of a kind earrings by porkchop rules, and basic pumps made special with the addition of shoe clips.

p.s.  last minute costumes still available....and have a safe and happy weekend!
