100% Thrifted Pick of the Week (7.6.08)

Gardening at the Institution, originally uploaded by sunshineupton.

Alright, granted I may be biased when it comes to this girl, as she happens to be my long lost style twin who I have thankfully been reunited with via the wonders of the internet. We've struck up a long distance friendship bridging the gap between California and Finland by gushing over each other's outfits on flickr, following each other's blogs, periodic emails, and even thrifting treasures for one another. But all that and my girl-crush aside, this pick is all about the perfect summer sundress!

I think Milla (aka sunshineupton) has nailed it here. This dress is so lovely, not to mention perfect on her! That shade of blue, the flowers, the pretty and delicate detailing with the lil' bow at the top... It's light, it's airy... perfect for a hot summer day. I love the flower child meets Grecian goddess feel of this. I'm always inspired by her skill at adding the perfect finishing touches to an outfit. Here, the brown lace-up sandals and shoelace headband adorned with a single daisy make the perfect outfit "bookends" adding charm and interest without taking the focus off of the dress. Nicely done my lil' hippie friend!

Blush...And double blush. You're way too kind Missa, I wish I could give you big hug for being so sweet. But instead, I'm putting another little thing in the mail. Suspense ensues on both sides of the ocean. I can't wait to get your package! Something to look forward to is so nice!
