Thrift Challenge 1: My First Ukay

S.O.S.

You don't have to spend lots of money if you can dress creatively!

My Blog Thrift Challenge! First stop: Ukay-Ukay (Thrift Shop)

This is my first time to buy from Ukay-Ukay (Thrift Shop). My friends are telling me that I should try ukay and I always say no. I don't want to wear clothes used by some random girl I didn't know. But, my perspective was changed! We stopped by at Quezon Avenue to buy some pizza and we saw this ukay store right beside it. My sister and I checked them out and we were amazed of the stuff that they're selling! Most are from China, some are from Europe. 
Luckily, these items I bought still have a price tag! Yes, they aren't pre-loved by some girls. You just have to be patient if you want to see good finds like these. Want to know the prices? Read further. :-)
Paisley top for only 40php
Red leather skirt for only 20php
Necklace for only 100php (Yes, a bit expensive because it's from Divi)

Total: 170php ($4.06). Yehey! Plus, they still all have a price tag!
Mocha leopard wedges from So! F.A.B.
Because I am not yet ready to buy shoes from ukay! Haha.

  4. Hi Pau!! Great find! I'm an ukay-ukay lover too. For me it's a treasure house, you can find many amazing pieces in a great great price. :D I'll ask my photographer if what camera did he use. But it's a Canon as I can remember. :)

  6. You look great and I have to agree with your great Ukay finds. We called it "vintage stores" here or Salvation Army or Goodwill. I have to admit that I am terrified on those stores but maybe like you one day will venture and maybe i'll find hidden treasures.
