Our Favourites! The Thrifty Six

collage of our favourites

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?

Our favourites

Favourite things…

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!

monochrome black outfit

Here are my favorite thrifted things all combined into one! Actually this Zara dress is one of my husband’s favorites. I had purchased the Zara velvet blazer on the same thrifting trip as the dress with every intention of wearing them together. So I finally did that! Also my favorite combat boots and cigar box purse were fabulous preloved purchases as well. And my new turquoise necklace was gifted to me from Michelle of My Bijou Life!

Our favourites leopard print jumpsuit in pink

 

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.

Since this month’s theme is favorites, I decided to round up some of my favorite thrifted outfits from the past! I’ve been really struggling to keep up with blogging these past few weeks while studying abroad, so I figured rounding up some of my best secondhand looks would be a fun way to fulfill this month’s Thrifty Six post. This brown tweed blazer fits me perfectly and is by far one of my favorite secondhand pieces. It always makes me feel like a badass—in the chicest, most professional way possible!

I hope you loved to see our pre loved favourites. Of course we have so many more. So do scroll our blogs and let you be inspired. Hopefully you will like pre loved clothing as much as we do!

I would really appreciate it if you would follow me on Instagram.

    I’d have a hard time picking a favorite outfit because there are so many things I love and I dress for my mood of the day! I agree with you, if we aren’t wearing what we want and love in our free time, then that needs to change. I would love to find a DVF dress like this, such an iconic piece. You look fabulous!

    Loving your DVF wrap dress, my friend! It is so perfectly you that it is no wonder it’s a fave! I have done the same as you with a thrifty theme or two where I had my heart set on one thing until I realized it wasn’t preloved! Haha.

    A beautiful Spring look Nancy! Very festive for the woman who loves black. (I’m pretty partial to black myself sometimes.) And the cut of the dress is so becoming on you.

    King Louie does this kind of dress so well, and the prints are gorgeous. I particularly love the colours of this dress, even if you say there are not really your colours. I’m always chuffed to find pre-loved King Louie stuff! xxx

      Indeed! And they have the best cardigans as you already know!

    I love Jane’s addition of a cheap beaded necklace to her sequinned dress – what a great idea. And Emma’s jumpsuit is such a stunner!

    I actually associate wrap-style dresses with you, Nancy (especially DVF!), along with badass rock & roll looks. You look fabulous!

    Well, I want to see the other look now, too! But, this DVF dress is fabulous on you, Nancy! I do need to take a good long look at my clothes and see what doesn’t make me happy anymore. There are some things I’ve had and I just keep them when I need to move them on to someone else!
