Spotlight on Plum Polka Dot

I have always cooed at the beautiful headpieces that babies and little girls wear. I have to admit that I have even placed a few bows in my son’s hair, only to have them ripped out within seconds of placement. I’m outnumbered by the boys, but that doesn’t mean I can’t shop for my niece.

I am excited to share a spotlight post on Christina Crowe the owner and creator of Plum Polka Dot.

Bespoke designs for the little miss to wedded bliss & beyond

Long before I decided to launch my own line of handcrafted accessories, known as Plum Polka Dot, I knew that I had a knack for all things creative and crafty.

When I wasn’t working for a major Canadian retailer at both the store and corporate level, I was often found creating one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for friends and family for Christmas, birthdays and other special occasions.

In 2008, my husband and I welcomed our twin sons into the world and quickly became accustomed to life with two boisterous boys. But everything changed when our baby daughter, Julia, joined the family nearly five years later. I soon fell in love with outfitting our ‘little miss’ in beautiful garments and accessories, and was particular about sourcing locally produced, premium quality designs.

Unsuccessful in my search, and armed with a decade of experience in customer service, purchasing and supply chain and project management — and a passion for crafting — I decided to launch my very own line of custom accessories, and thus Plum Polka Dot was born.


Plum Polka Dot offers a wide range of colourful and petal-soft accessories including headbands, hair clips and ties, and maternity sashes that are perfect for special occasions, photo opportunities and everyday use. Our distinctive accessories are ideal for any age — from newborns through to adults — and are lovingly and individually made with a creative touch and a keen eye for the finest details.

Pearl & Clasp- Updating My Mom Look

PC logo

Being a very busy mom of two, I look the part. You could spot me out in a sea of people, as I have the typical “mom look.” You know that mommy fashion; wearing the same pair of jeans or yoga pants four days in a row, t-shirt with a stain, hoodie and tennis shoes. My hair is in a pony, my makeup consists of chapstick and loose powder foundation to cover the dark circles under my eyes and the only jewelry that I wear is my wedding ring. Yep, the mom look.


Well, Monday night I had the opportunity to transform out of my dirty pair of yoga pants into clean, stain free attire, to attend The Center for HOPE‘s annual family holiday dinner. I had the opportunity to clean up my style with a new pair of pink pearl earrings from Pearl & Clasp.


The earrings were beautiful and made me feel more like a woman instead of just a mom. I haven’t worn a pair of earrings in 7 years, gosh that sounds terrible to say out loud, but it’s true. I found myself pulling my hair back behind my ears to show them off a little more.


This is the perfect time of year to get them as there are so many holiday events to attend. I can dress up my mom style into a modern, beautiful look.

These earrings come in freshwater, silver and pink. Click here to get a pair for yourself or a friend.

Don’t forget to stop by and see some of the other amazing jewelry pieces they have to fill your holiday shopping list, you won’t be disappointed.
