The Thrifty Six in January Bright!

When I think bright- I think white! With a side of colourful David Bowie makes it even better! But today’s star (sorry Bowie), is this vintage YSL foulard. Can blue and white be any crisper?

I’ve inherited this scarf years ago (the 80’s to be exact)…and all I did was wear it a few times. Why? Well for one thing, when you start wearing white in Canada, it’s basically no longer time for scarves- because it means we are straight into heat wave season. But not here in Southern Florida, where January makes it oh-so-perfect to wear! I love blue and white…oh so bright! Unless of course, January in Florida is too early for white?!

This northern girl could care less…she wears what she wants, when she wants!! Dopamine Styling is where it’s at!

Let’s check out and see what my Thrifty Six Sisters are wearing:

Emma of Style Splash

“I always find January is such a dreary time of year – the festivities are over, the decorations packed away and spring is still a way off. It’s hardly a recipe for joy. But I’m fighting back with colourful outfits and a determination to stay positive. Let’s brighten up January and get through it with a smile!”

Grace of Graceful Rags

“What better way to brighten up January than a turquoise faux fur coat?! I am currently studying abroad in Scotland, so I took this month’s thrifty collaboration as the perfect opportunity to go to my first charity shop last week. This fun jewel-toned jacket was the perfect find and only 12 pounds! It reminds me of something Keely from the show ‘Ted Lasso’ would wear.”

Jane of Preloved-Vintage-Handmade

“Blue and green should never be seen?!?…

An old saying without any real reason?

I bring you electric blue accessorised with turquoise, aqua and forest green…

…is it so terrible?

I feel like an angel in azure when I wear this striking evening dress…

It’s a feast for the eye and perfect for the Thrifty Six ‘Brighten up January’ theme!”

Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style

“You all know I am not the most colorful person, on the outside that is lol, but this sweater feels really colorful to me. I love a dark floral print. With a bit of glitter too. I bought recently three pre loved sweaters and this is my favorite one. I couldn’t resist wearing it with an also pre loved black maxi skirt . But I chose colorful ankle boots too!”

“When Emma said brighten up January, I went full on bright color blocking because it is so gray and dreary here. This preloved pink shirt dress was just handed down to me from my neighbor because it didn’t fit her anymore. This amazing scarf was borrowed stolen from my son. My neon Zara sweater, orange button down shirt, and green heart necklace were all thrifted. I felt like a box of 1980’s neon crayons and it made me so happy!”


The Thrifty Six is 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 preloved wardrobe pieces. Shopping and reselling preloved 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!
