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.
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!

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!
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!
That’s a glam dress! I think you styled that dress and blazer perfectly together!
Thank you very much!
You look amazing Nancy! What is a dustpan?? ?
Kehrschaufel und Dose! Thanks Tina!

Thank you very much!

So many beautiful outfits here, Nancy. Love them all 🙂
Thanks so much for sharing at this week’s Creative Mondays.
Happy birthday month Nancy! Love this time and all the touches of gold in these looks. Love this pretty dress and jacket combo!
Thank you very much Kathrine!
Nancy, I love this dress on you! I think it looks fabulous. I really like that you have been able to style it in different ways with different colors. Great theme this month! I love all the gold on all of us!
Yes me too, everyone looked subleme!
Oh, these are so good! Love everyone’s outfits!
Thank you very much Mireille!
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
Haha yes indeed! To the irritating part! When is your birthday Ann?
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
Haha, mine is a double digit! Also away for it!! Lol.
What a fun theme! Everyone did a great job. I love the way you styled your dress.
Thanks Michelle, it is still not very me I a afraid!
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!
Oh that’s good, then I can get some inspiration of how to wear it!
What a fun theme; you all look fabulous!
Such a fun post. Love seeing everyone’s fools gold styles! Each outfit and story is fabulous! Just love gold everything!!
Yes me too! Thanks Gwen!
That dress fell into your theme so perfectly Nancy!! I just ADORE it with the white boots!
Thanks! I think the white boots look good under it too!
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.
