My Thrifted Favourites - March Thrifty Six

How was your weekend? I hope your week has got off to a good start. As it’s the third Monday of the month it’s time for another Thrifty Six challenge. Jane chose the theme of thrifted favourites, so a fairly broad scope – especially as I have so many favourite thrifted pieces! I thought about some of the many clothes and accessories I’ve bought in charity shops and on eBay that I’ve featured before. However, I’d been meaning to photograph this pink leopard print denim boiler suit but hadn’t got around to it. Jane’s prompt gave me the push to finally feature it on the blog.

Old and new (to me) thrifted favourites

I found the boiler suit in a charity shop for only £6 with the tag still attached. It’s by Nasty Gal, which is not a brand I’d usually consider, but it seemed to be good quality, in a durable stretch denim. The only thing I try on in charity shops are jackets, coats and shoes (I really don’t like changing rooms) so I took a chance with this boiler suit.

One thing I didn’t realise until I got it home, was that it doesn’t have fastenings on the top. A zip would have made it much more practical, but I still love it. A black vest underneath soon solved that problem. Luckily, the length is just right too. I added my pink glitter ankle boots and my favourite velvet cat bag that you’ve seen many times before; it’s well and truly earned its place on the list of my thrifted favourites.

Let’s check in with my stylish friends to see their thrifted favourites…

Jane of Preloved-Vintage-Handmade

“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!”

Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style

“My favorite outfit. Now that is a difficult one. I had to think about that one. Of course it has to be black, I thought…. Because I really have changed in the past years, and I do wear color now, black still is my favorite. There is something dramatic, cool, punky, sexy, mysterious about a black outfit. Well, in my eyes it is.You might think it’s very boring.  And then I thought of the photo I use a lot. A simple black dress, biker boots with golden studs and some golden jewelry! And then it hit me!! It wasn’t pre loved!! 

And it’s all about pre loved with The Thrifty Six of course! So then I had to choose between a Diane von Fustenberg dressand this King Louie one. But as the DvF dress is more a winter dress I choose this one. I just love the fact that it is a wrap dress and the print is so lovely. Also the fabric feels great to my skin. I feel very feminine in this one!”

“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!”

Grace of Graceful Rags

“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!”

Lucy (of Lucy Bertoldi) is taking a break this month but we hope she’ll rejoin us next month!
