100% Thrifted Pick of the Week (7.28.08)

WR 24.07 - Paisley + Rain, originally uploaded by strike.match.
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!

Thank you so, so much! Coming from you, this is probably the biggest compliment I've ever been given. You've made my day!

The only thing rivaling that dresses cuteness is the girl! I like the sneakers and blue tights with it

Oh, great choice. Her color palette is so perfect 70s. If I was petite I would live in the thrift store junior section!
