I enjoy shopping at ukay-ukays (thrift stores) because you’ll never know what you’re going to find. You just need to have the patience to rummage through racks and racks of second-hand clothing until you find the diamond in the rough! It’s pretty fun—kind of like a treasure hunt! lol
What I’m wearing: floral button down (Ukay-Ukay), tank top (Topman), cap (Lacoste Live), chino pants (Topman), sunglasses (Topman), penny board (Urban Outfitters), boots (Caterpillar). Hype this on lookbook.nu here.
Floral polo from Ukay-Ukay | Tank top from Topman | Got this floral button down for only 50 bucks at a night market in Harrison Road Baguio last year. Don’t be disheartened if the piece of clothing you fancy is damaged or not your size. You’ll find the perfect one! You just have to keep your eyes open.
Sunglasses from Topman | Round sunnies are awesome and they do look stylish. I want more of these! Anyone know where I can buy the same style but with wooden frames?
Cap from Lacoste Live | Okay I’ll be honest. Another reason why I buy some of my clothes from thrift shops is so I could buy stuff from more high-end brands. I’m a cheapskate, I know. Haha!
