Tickled Pink – The Thrifty Six

February 21, 2022
Tickled Pink - The Thrifty Six collage

Sometimes the themes chosen by my fellow bloggers in the various groups I’m in leave me scratching my head – this one was a breeze though! Grace chose “Tickled Pink” for this month’s Thrifty Six title, and I surely was! My thoughts turned immediately to this pink coat that I found in a charity shop a few years ago. It really was a lucky find because I’d been looking for a coat in exactly this shade and style for some time.

You know I like to go all out for these group challenges, so I piled on the pink! Underneath the coat I’m wearing a hot pink turtleneck jumper and floral print trousers (seen previously here). My bag and boots are also preloved – both from eBay. I thought about adding a brooch to the coat, but as it was so cold I chose this furry scarf instead. The beret was a last minute addition – a much-needed one actually, to keep my hair from blowing all over my face. We’ve had two bad storms here in quick succession, and apparently there’s a third on the way! I can’t wait for my Easter holiday in the sunshine!

Grace of Graceful Rags

“I wasn’t sure about this funky light pink sweater when I first saw it hanging in the charity shop, but I’m really glad I decided to get it! The tulle detail on the sleeve is so unique and fun. This would’ve made the perfect look for Valentine’s Day.”

“I realized that I had styled a preloved bright pink dress for our Brighten Up January theme. And I had considered restyling that same pink dress again until I remembered this vintage pussy bow blouse that has a pink Taj Mahal print. I paired it with all white, including a preloved blazer, and lots of pink accessories. This outfit consists of both preloved and new items, including a preloved faux fur coat that you can see in my post!” 

Jane of Preloved-Vintage-Handmade

“Go hard or go home!…

That’s my approach to February’s Thrifty Six post…

The theme is ‘Tickle Me Pink’ so I’m bringing you panic-attack neon mixed with blush, candy, lipstick, baby, shocking, fuchsia, cerise and magenta…

Less of a ‘tickle’, more of an unexpected physical assault! (in the nicest possible way)

I styled this riot of colour to see how much pink I could smash together…

…it’s not for shrinking violets but for me it’s pink perfection!”

Lucy of Lucy Bertoldi


“I don’t know how I got so lucky as to find this amazing little number all in silk in a print of vibrant colours all on pink. The one thing I know is that this dress is all about ‘more is more, and less is a bore’- so you just know I had to add these incredible necklaces! I found them in a little no-name shop in Fort Lauderdale-where the lady gets all these amazing accessories from left-over, brand new retail merchandise. And she sells them for peanuts! I mean…how could I resist?” 

Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style

“There is pink in this fabulous dress with pockets! The cardigan isn’t preloved but it’s perfect with the dress. I haven’t worn the dress much because it is actually too short for my liking, but I adore the colors and the print. And the pockets! Did I mention it has pockets??”

That’s all for this month…we’ll be back in March with another thrifty theme! Are you tickled pink by our outfits?
