100% Thrifted Pick of the Week (9.08.08)

Really it hardly seems fair for one girl to own the TWO most adorably plaid-tastic vintage day dresses in all the land, but alas this does indeed seem to be the case… SIGH.

Strawberrykoi was clearly born to wear the coming season’s most popular pattern. My goodness, she looks stunning in both of these dresses! In fact, I’d even go as far as to say that plaid has found its new poster girl ;) I just can’t even get over how cute that second one is with its sweet little double collar and perfectly puffed sleeves!

With Summer coming to an end and Fall quickly approaching, it seems everyone and their mother has gone mad for plaid. Even I had recently taken notice of the severe lack of plaid in my wardrobe and mentally added it to my ongoing must thrift list. Well, I have to admit that having seen these two amazing dresses, plaid has been catapulted straight to the top of said list, so wish me luck!

Adorable indeed!

I wish I'd rustled up some wintry plaid goodies for you in my parcel - ah well, maybe next time...

Oh she is adorable! And yes, it hardly seems fair. Sigh

That dress looks like it was made for her. IF only I could look that fabulous. But I'm not as cute nor am I as thin.

You so are magical! I already knew that ;D

Most. Adorable. Dresses. Why, oh why did I put down that plaid skirt at the thrift store last week?? I've regretted it ever since.

I've never really liked these kind of patterns, but i am starting to appreciate them more.
Gorgeous ladies!

I hope you are fine...and your little one also!

I must be very behind because I didn't even know plaid was in. How did I miss this? I don't think I own one piece of plaid. Of course now that you mention it I'll probably spot it everywhere. I hope to go out and thrift this weekend and I'll wager that I'll find something plaid like. See what an influence you are my dear friend.

Oh plaid how I love you.. I would love either of these dresses.

They are both amazing!! Why oh why can't I ever find a dress so fine...
