Fools Gold to Wear-The Thrifty Six

It was my turn to choose a theme this month and it became fools gold. I will explain you later why.

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.

Fools Gold

This is my birthday month. The 31st is my birthday. So I actually wanted a theme with my zodiac sign, Virgo. But no matter how I searched, I couldn’t find a connection anywhere for my zodiac sign and a pre-loved outfit. I could have done a photo of a dress and dustpan and in my hand, because everywhere it says that a Virgo is very tidy, and that’s true, but I didn’t like that very much. ( well, I do like it, perhaps for another time)

And then I got to gold, and then to fools gold. Gold, because I love clothes with gold, golden boots, golden buttons, gold thread etc. And fools gold because I bought this dress a long time ago and I don’t know how to style it. So the dress kinda fools me. It has gold silver and grey isch threads. I styled it here with darker colors and now with more bright ones. Still it doesn’t look as good on me as I want it too!

I had forgotten about this amazing gold satin blouse with little leopards all over it that I had found on my last thrifting adventure. So this was the winner for a Fool’s Gold theme! I paired it with a recently thrifted faux leather mini skirt in burgundy (with silver zipper and buckles…I wish they were gold!). I also had a thrifted gold sequined clutch, but I couldn’t decide between 3 different bags so I photographed the outfit with all 3. Stop by my blog and tell me which one is best! I loaded up on gold accessories—all fake costume gold…just like fool’s gold!

All that glitters is not gold…

…sometimes worthless things sparkle – but true quality has brilliance!

In life and in fashion, the difference is clear!

This dress is pure silk, rich and magnificent…

It’s enough, it needs no more; no synthetic spangle, no vulgar bling.

Less is more, a triumph for the understated!

So…

…do you know shit from Shinola? – Can you tell Pyrite from Aurum?

Know it at a glance and know you have style!

I went thrifting a lot in the past month—and in Las Vegas no less—but I couldn’t find anything gold that I absolutely loved. I ended up wearing this hand-me-down gold threaded mock-neck for a super chic outfit, something I could see myself wearing to New York Fashion Week if I was cool enough. I stood in front of the mirror a long time trying to decide if the gold top clashed with the brown shorts, but I ultimately thought it was a stylish combo. And of course, I had to top the outfit off with my favorite shoes ever—snakeskin Valentino Rockstud dupes. I felt like a million bucks!

I was really stuck for something gold that’s preloved – which surprised me given how much I buy second hand. But then I remembered this sequin dress that I bought on eBay a couple of years ago. I wore it for another Thrifty Six theme last year, along with the same earrings and shoes…that’s being really thrifty I guess!

What could be better for a Leo girl than styling up some gold?!  Right in my element with this shiny tube top layered under a lamé jacket- paired with cutest teeny purse! Can never pass up gold finds on my thrill of the thrift hunts!

Gosh, I really love all these fools gold outfits! Like I said, I am a sucker for gold! Ladies, if you ever get tired of your golden items, send them over!! Lol.

Have a great day everyone!

    What a magnificent theme, Nancy. I have to admit I would have struggled with it as, apart from a gold belt, I don’t think I’ve got anything in my wardrobe that classifies as gold! You ladies all came up trumps though!
    So you are a virgo like me! I laughed out loud when you mentioned the dustpan thing. So true though. Tidy and organized, that’s us 🙂 xxx

        My birthday’s on the 12th of September, Nancy, and it will be a milestone one this year. Not sure if I’m looking forward to it, but at least we’ll be away for it. xxx

    How funny, Nancy, I’m wearing that same grey/gold colour today in a sequined skirt! It is a difficult colour, I agree.

    I love seeing all these looks – so fun!

    I am envious of what style of clothes you wear to look full of energy, and I hope that one day I can be like you.
