100% Thrifted Pick of the Week (7.21.08)


This week's pick from the 100% Thrifted Flickr group, goes to breakdancebetty in all her bohemian glory. How could you NOT be inspired by such flower power perfection?! This romantic flowy maxi dress is SO gorgeous... the pattern, the colors, the bodice texture, and best of all those sleeves! I love how she embraced the flower child mood here and completely brought it to life. My gosh, she could be at Woodstock in this picture! The sunglasses, the sandals, the necklace... Oh, the necklace... LOVE the birdies, especially the single bird with its wings spread! It's all so wonderful and her hair with its loose flowing waves completes the look perfectly! I'm totally inspired by how authentically summer-of-love this appears, while still maintaining a modern feel in a Sonya Rykiel Spring/Summer 08 kind of way. So so beautiful!

I own necklaces of the same kind!

In the early 80s in the western US...you could buy cheap, Native American, jewelry like that at roadside stands set up by the Native Americans at rest stops during roadtrips!

I own many bracletes and necklaces with those silver birds, silver roses, beads, and turquoise in them . Miss those days!
