Dedicated to beauty and refinement, Rose La Mer is an accessories shop inspired by vintage fashion. Using true vintage materials, some even dating to the 1880s, each piece comes to life with a modern take on classic and accessible styles. What emerges is elegant fashion that is versatile, from costume to cocktail wear. Every Rose La Mer piece is a truly unique and lovely item sewn with love by hand in Crockett, California.

Behind the Stitches


Kelsey Holt started Rose La Mer in the summer of 2011 and has been going strong ever since. After designing and creating the reception headpiece for a dear friend's wedding, she began learning and implementing millinery techniques into numerous hats and fascinators. After developing an inventory, she launched her line on Etsy and moved into selling at local trade and trunk shows around the San Francisco Bay Area.

With her attention to detail and keen eye for beautiful design elements, Kelsey not only creates unique headwear but she also is an avid seamstress, painter, and gardener with passions for antiquing, cooking, reading historical fiction, and drinking fine cocktails (especially well made martinis). She resides in Crockett, a little town just outside of San Francisco, with her gentleman and cat and dog.
