In The Great Republic of Rough and Ready

From Amber and Sasha

While The Great Republic of Rough and Ready has an very imposing name, in reality it is a small rural community situated just outside of Grass Valley. Though it is just a five minute drive down the road, it feels like worlds away. Rough and Ready made motions to secede from the Union in 1850, in protest of a tax on new mining claims and the prohibition of alcohol in Nevada County, but the community voted itself back in when they realized that they could no longer celebrate the 4th of July if they were independent from the Union. This doesn't stop anyone from celebrating "Secession Days" every year in late June, and there is an outlaw vibe in Rough and Ready that remains to this day. When my in-laws moved from the suburbs of the Bay Area to the foothills, they looked at a house there. Their conclusion? "It's too rough, and we're not ready!" 

We, on the other hand, were ready to take on the historical downtown, if for one afternoon-- with bags of vintage clothes and a camera!

This shot was taken just for fun in one of Amber's own (non vintage) dresses, with the *cutest* boots ever that Sasha found!

This sweater is another item that Sasha scored that quickly found it's way into a very grateful Amber's closet.
