It was my turn to choose a theme and I had a top in mind with a outfit and all. My fashion friends struggled a bit with the theme, but I was ready! At least I thought so. Because when I wanted to wear the outfit with that particular top,to take photos for this theme, I saw that the top had cats and not birds on it! How could I be so wrong! Luckily I did have a pre loved top with birds on it, but next time when it is my turn again you already know what theme I will choose, lol.
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.
Sometimes I am a angry bird!
I can get really upset about certain things. About the situation in the world, for example. It gets grimmer and grimmer. I often think, where is it going to lead. Will it ever be “normal” again. Or is this the new now. Well, if there’s one thing that can make a person happy, it’s birds. The lovely chattering in the spring. We have to wait a little longer there for that, but we can wear a nice bird print of course. Anyway I do, let’s see if my friends had the same thoughts.
Ravens are not angry birds…
The Thrifty Six theme for November is ‘We’re not angry birds’
Interesting eh – well this is where I’m taking it…
The statement leather collar on this dress reminds me of Raven’s wings.
I love Ravens, I watch them every day from my window.
People often think they’re sinister…
…but they’re actually funny and clever…
…definitely not angry birds!
You might think, where is Lucy? Unfortunately she made the decision to leave our group as she had to much going on. We respect her choice of course but are sad to see her leave as she is a fabulous inspiring fashionable woman! We wish her all the luck!
Now we have a open space for our monthly outing! If you would like to join us, just let us know. Just mail us and we give you all the details.
That sounds so fun. It’s a great way to share a community and thrifting is so much fun.
Oh my gosh; what a fun theme and it was so neat to see how everyone interpreted it!
Although this theme was a bit confusing for us, I think we came up with some pretty fabulous interpretations! I love Jane’s raven inspired look and Emma’s pearl dipped flamingo style! So fun!
Haha, but that is the best fun! That we have to crack our brain about it! It’s your turn next!
Cute theme and I think the others took off with it well! The pattern on your shirt is so fun and I love that leather skirt on you!!
Love all these takes on your theme Nancy! I adore the print of your blouse. I am a bird lady for sure!
Thank you Kathrine!
I love your swan print top – it looks great layered over the white shirt. Fabulous skirt too!
Thanks Emma, I love this skirt a lot too!
I loved reading this Nancy, and you’re right. Birds make us happy to hear their chirping and such.
I love how your prompt got everyone so creative,
Thank you very much Jodie!
This is a fun theme, and I enjoyed seeing everyone’s take on it.
THank you very much!
I can get really upset and angry about things too, so I guess that makes me an Angry Bird 🙂
Well, you did make me laugh with the subject and the fact that the top you had in mind had cats on it instead of birds!
Your substitute bird top is gorgeous though, and I love the skirt you’ve paired it with.
I often wonder if it will be ever normal again as well, the thought that it won’t is making me feel very anxious. xxx
P.S. For some reason, your post didn’t come up in my reader nor did I get the usual Follow It message. I was wondering why I hadn’t seen your post as I did see it from Shelbee and Emma …
It can make me anxious too. Weird world. Follow it is not always constant I think, but you are here!
