style her own: kara

kara is the co-owner of crimson & clover, a vintage & handmade boutique in scaramento, a self-confessed "sometimes blogger", also long-time internet pal, who shares my mutual love for tattoos & vintage clothes! kara, a soon to be hot mama, is heavily inspired by 70s patterns & dresses & i'm all for it.

name, age & where are you living right now? 
Kara age:36 Sacramento,Ca

how are you today?
Today ok just getting use to having a baby grow inside of me.

what was your 13 year old self wearing?
13 well I Liked Espirt and Benetton.My parents were not that rich so I only got Benetton once in awhile. I also loved my Spumoni sweater and matching skirt, I never had the bear one, I had a penguins.

what will your 50 year old self be wearing?
OH at 50...gee vintage vintage. I plan on still wearing heels and flats for this chick.

how important is individual style to you?
Individual style happens either when your a teen or maybe in your 20s. I think I have always wanted to "standout" not in a crazy way. Well I guess getting tattooed might be far as clothes. I started thrifting when I was in high school and just loved it. It depends on the person, from having a vintage store and knowing the customers, it really depends on who they are. Some love vintage but they always say I am not brave enough to wear it so they wear F21 stuff....ok. Some come in and they know how to mix the new and vintage together. 

what inspires what you wear?
I guess I really love 70's style clothing, from disco to hippie. I always loved it when I was in high school and I still love it now. I guess I like the style of the hair, mine is long.I am also lazy so I just like to air dry it and let it be.

what items do you tend to continually replace in your wardrobe?
I do have the option of selling my random tshirts or other stuff that doesnt fit anymore at my store.

what are you obsessed with right now?
Oh man shoes, mostly Frye boots or even their heels they are super cute. I also love bib/empire waist angel sleeve dresses. They work great as I am getting a bigger belly. I liked them before but now I am always on the hunt for them!
