How nice to see you here. This month our theme is Coats! Only pre loved of course. Do you shop second hand? You really should give it a try. I was hesitant at first, a few years ago, but now I am loving it! So much more unique items to shop for!
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, only, pre loved coat, and not for long….
When Jane mentioned she had chosen coats as our November’s theme I thought, gosh I have to shop for a pre loved coat. I do have jackets and blazers, but no coats. I already ordered a leopard print one on a second hand site, but wasn’t really pleased with it. And then it hit me!! I have a Viktor&Rolf for H&M trenchcoat in my closet! How could I forget about that one. Well, probably because I never wear it. It’s a bit to snug and so heavy. But it’s a gorgeous coat!
But because I never wear it, I am going to sell it. Hope that someone else will wear this gorgeous trenchcoat. It’s on my Vinted page.

I found this plush leopard coat a few years ago at my local thrift store and it is one of my favorite, coziest coats that I own. I love wrapping up in it on cold days. I feel kind of like a movie star when I throw it on over jeans.

Winter coats I’ve known and loved…
In my mind, I flick fondly through my winter coat ‘back-catalogue’…
…cashmere, tweed, Marino wool, faux fur, such beautiful colours, shiny buttons and sometimes matching scarves or hats.
Through the years they’ve kept me warm, made me happy and enhanced my fashion statement!
All now worn out, sold, lost, out-grown or given to charity…
…always making space for more…
…like this dream in cream, the latest addition to my collection…
Oooooooh I do love a winter coat!
Did we give you some inspiration to buy pre loved? Or to at least give it a try? If you have a suggestion of what you want to show us, just say so in the comments! We hope to see you next month!
