Strike.Match was looking super cute this week in the 100% Thrifted flickr pool. I have such a weakness for lil’ sixties minidresses, especially the one’s made for young girls like this amazing thrift find. In fact, I think this dress and my green sixties girl’s dress that I was so excited to find at Lytton Springs should hang out. They would make quite the pair!
For such a small dress though, it sure is packed with sweet details! First of all, that print is awesome, the paisley motif and the rich blue/gold with a hint of maroon color combo. Not to mention that show-stopper of a collar and the millions of sweet round buttons popping out in bright white. I’m also loving how the navy tights and white lace-ups carry out the color scheme. The tights continuing the vertical strips of blue in the print really tie the whole look together in a nice way too.
What I like most though is the playful mood of the picture. She looks incredibly stylish, yet at the same time like she would be perfectly comfortable climbing a tree or stone hopping across a creek. As a matter of fact, dancing in the rain is, according to her lovely blog, exactly what she was doing. Strike.Match has a unique and fun style which I’ve been enjoying in wardrobe_remix for awhile now. This also comes across in the pieces she sells in her new Etsy shop Strike Match Vintage, so check it out!
