Hello! This is my very first so I don't know what to expect. I just wanted to try and incorporate my style somehow in this blog. I'm no fashionista nor a model, but I thought this might be fun. So please excuse this photo.
I really like buying clothes from thrift shops or in local term, 'ukay-ukay'. Yes, probably 80% of my clothes are bought from there. It's hard to go ukay-ukay shopping, since you basically have to dig from a mountain of clothes (most of which are crap) just to find the good ones. But it is all worth it especially when you stumble upon great finds for a very very cheap price.
My top is an example of those great finds. I found it at an ukay-ukay pile priced at P25.00 and didn't hesitate to buy it right away. It is just my style and it is totally me. I think it makes me look powerful and classy. Plus, it's not tight so it doesn't show my belly fat (HAHA!). This one is definitely for keeps. It took awhile for me to find the right time to wear it though. With the weather here in the Philippines, I couldn't imagine wearing it out in the hot sun. It'd be too warm. Finally had the chance to wear it one cold rainy day. I just paired it up with my trusty black skirt and then it was church ready.
I would recommend you go and check out thrift shops, you just might find something that's totally a perfect fit for you.
P.S. I do hope to get better at this.
Have you tried shopping for thrifted items before? Did you find anything nice?
