Sounds like a easy one right! Because don’t we all wear our favourite things? I mean, why wear clothes that we don’t like? Well sometimes we have to of course. Perhaps you work at a place wear you have to wear a uniform. Or clothes that are strong and can handle filth, but aren’t very….you. But let’s say we wear our favourite items in our free time. Which isn’t true either. As there are so many women who don’t dare to wear what they want. I say to those women, please do!! Wear what you like, life is to short to be mainstream. I could write a hole blog post for these wome, because clothes do so much for you! But hey, who am I….
Sadly Lucy isn’t able to join us this month. Hope to see you next month love!
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.
What is my favourite outfit then?
My favorite outfit. Now that’s a difficult one. I had to think about that. Of course it must be black, I thought… Because I’ve really changed over the years, and I do wear color now, but black is still my favorite. There’s something dramatic, cool, punky, sexy, mysterious about a black outfit. Well, in my view yes. You could think it is very boring. And then I thought of the photo I use a lot for blogging stuff. A simple black dress, biker boots with gold studs and some gold jewelry! That had to be my favorite outfit!
And then it hit me!! It was not pre-loved! And of course, The Thrifty Six is all about pre-loved! Gosh, that just slipped my mind. So then I had to choose between this Diane von Fustenberg dress and this King Louie dress. But since the DvF dress is more of a winter dress, I chose this one. I just love the fact that it’s a wrap dress and the print is so pretty. The fabric also feels great on my skin. I feel very feminine in this! So this is my favorite pre-loved outfit!
And what are my friends’ favorites?

I’ve worn this dramatic micro-mini at several glamorous events and often been asked if it’s a designer piece.
It’s actually one of my own very simple creations…
A basic sequin dress, with masses of faux-jet beads added to adorn the bodice.
The beads came in the form of a cheap necklace which I’ve stitched into each shoulder so it drapes across the front.
The movement, theatre and animation elevates a basic LBD into something quite sensational…
I have hundreds of dresses but I think this one is my absolute favourite!

I found this jumpsuit in a charity shop for £6…it still had the original tag on it! I had no idea what it would look like on but I knew I had to buy it anyway. When I got it home and tried it on, I was so glad I’d bought it! I’ve styled it with my favourite velvet cat bag that I bought on eBay years ago.
