Nothing screams Summer more then a Boho look! Think Ibiza, hippies, lots of colorful necklaces and bracelets, you get the picture! However I am not that into the Boho Mania! Lucky that I have got fabulous fashion blogger friends who can perfectly covey the Boho look!
Welcome to The Thrifty Six. We are a group of international fashion influencers who meet once a month in our little space on the internet to share our thrifty outfits. On the third Monday of every month, we will all share an outfit based on a theme that features pre loved wardrobe pieces. Shopping and reselling pre loved clothing is so much better for the environment and you can find some of the best fashions in thrift or charity shops. The Thrifty Six are here to inspire you to shop second hand.
My attempt to set a Boho Mania look
This blouse is actually a hand me down as you name it I think. I never wear a boho look and this was the only item that came close to me. And it’s not the blouse that gives me a bit of a boho feel, it’s the hairband, which belongs with the blouse, and the mules. But I only wore the blouse for this photo a few years ago. It ended up in the give away bag.
In the meanwhile I bought a gorgeous tie dye maxi skirt that feels a bit boho mania. But……it’s not pre loved, and we only wear pre loved on The Thrifty Six!
But lets take a look at some fantastic Boho looks
Emma of Style Splash
For me, boho style means long, flowing dresses, vintage floral prints, tassels and floppy hats. I’ve managed to include all of those elements in this outfit. My dress is a vintage find from eBay. It has an unusual neckline that had me a little baffled at first – I wasn’t sure if I was wearing it back to front!
Grace of Graceful Rags
It was my turn to pick this month’s theme, and in hindsight, I have no idea why I chose boho! I really struggled putting together an outfit for today’s post and finally landed on this more subdued boho look. In my head, I was imagining flowing garments, pattern mixing, wild hair, lots of layered jewelry, lace-up sandals… all while frolicking in a field. This outfit is none of those things, except for the hair—I had fun adding tiny braids, twists, and hair rings. My secondhand skirt and matching elephant clutch felt like the next best thing to embody this month’s theme.

Musings under a cinnabar sunset…
Lost in thought, relaxing in the evening sun, I contemplate my attire and the complexities of its origin.
I muse upon the vintage patchwork skirt, hand-stitched by a bare-foot flower child…
…the trinkets and adornments collected over time, ethnic, Byzantine, Bedouin…
…crossing continents for me to unite them under this cinnabar sunset – my vision of bohemia…

Boho fashion and styling- I’m all in! For me boho is all about flowy and reminiscent pieces filled with florals and embroidery. This lovely dress I inherited from my Mexican friend Ernestina. She completely hand-embroidered it ages ago-making it all the more special to me. Artisanal work speaks to my heart-from soul to hand, creations blossom. Precious!

I found this turquoise embroidered boho dress when I went thrifting last month with my big birthday coupon and I combined it with my brown thrifted cowboy boots for some festival hippie vibes. I accessorized with a cowboy hat and beaded jewelry. And then I added a long crochet lace vest to cover up a few tiny bleach spots on the back of the dress that I didn’t notice at first.
That’s it for this month! The Thrifty Six hope you loved our Boho Mania and perhaps we inspired you to buy more pre loved!
Have a great day!
