Flowers to Wear! The Thrifty Six

collage of flowers outfits

Flowers for spring! Of course! We all love a floral print whenever the blossom is in full bloom and the birds are starting to sing and the sun is warming up our world……..well, the sun was fashionably late this spring over here. I always want at least one floral print dress each spring. Haven’t found a perfect one yet!

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.

Two of the same floral print skirts!

These skirts are two different ones! You might think, well they look alike to me. They do! But the one on the left was a new one, bought somewhere in 2013/2014. I wore it so often, it was such a great skirt. But after a few years it was worn and washed out and I had to throw it away. The one on the right I bought pre loved in 2019! I was so happy to find it again! And I am wearing the same jacket on both photos! The jacket is from the time when I was still working, I stopped in 2012. This skirt is so versatile, I love to wear it with heels, sneakers, slippers! It’s super stretchy and so easy to wear! What a fab skirt!

How do my fashion friends wear flowers?

Emma of Style Splash

dress with flowers in brown

My favourite floral prints are vintage 70s styles in warm hues of brown, orange and yellow. This dress – which I found on eBay – definitely fits the bill with its gorgeous floral pattern. I’ve completed the outfit with a preloved orange bag and tan belt…now I just need a garden party to go to!

Grace of Graceful Rags

I’m certain I have something thrifted and floral back at home, but since I’m at school, I had to venture out to find something new to fit this month’s theme… An excuse to go shopping. I’m not complaining! I found this absolutely adorable floral romper from a nearby consignment store and love the girly silhouette and cutout in the front. Now I just need a brunch to attend!

Florals on the edge of danger!…

Florals are pretty, florals are romantic, feminine and soft. Florals are gentle, delicate, sweet and joyful…

UhOh – Reeewind!

This is florals on the edge of danger!

In nature yellow and black warns of hazard; just look at creatures with a deadly sting or bite!

In human society, black leather and studs are badass!  Culturally associated with bikers, punks, deviants and mavericks.

Bring this all together and you get edgy, belligerent and powerful – Sometimes I like to take an idea and just shake it up a bit!

I’ve named this flowery dress/ jacket, a Dracket lol! I thrifted this one years ago, new tags and all- plus- it’s pure silk! Thought I’d pair it with these outrageous floral pants for a great hodgepodge look. The prints are totally different and yet they match due to common colours: Matching prints 101! It works perfectly here, don’t you think?!

flowers worn by a fashion blogger

I found this beautiful floral dress at the consignment shop when I worked there a few years ago. I love the color and the tiny print and the shirt dress style, but when I brought it home, it just didn’t fit quite right. Fast forward to now and I have lost a bit of weight making the fit much better for this dress. But when I styled it as a dress, It was cute but really kind of boring and so I opted to wear it as a jacket instead over my mostly thrifted outfit. Won’t you please stop by my blog for more details on these fun preloved pieces!

So are you wearing flowers these days?

    I love your floral skirt, my friend! And how great that you were able to find the exact one to replace it when the first one wore out! My post is finally written and published! I had to write it early this morning. Eek. But it’s done now!

    You know I’m loving a floral pattern, so I’m feasting my eyes here! Your skirt is gorgeous, no wonder you bought it again. It looks absolutely perfect with that jacket, which is delightful too! xxx P.S. I hope your holiday went off to a good start!

    I am a sucker for a good floral, and there are some spectacular ones here! Emma’s vintage is my favourite, I think, but they are all wonderful!
