Ukay Shopping 101
Hi guys! You all know how much I love Thrift shopping. 70% of my outfits are always ukay (cause you know I'm so kuripot) unless I find a very lovely dress from a retail brand (which I did at Ensembles and Forever 21 a couple of days ago) that I cannot resist. Since I'm going to Korea on thursday (as a company incentive trip) I had to shop for winter clothes as we were advised that the weather will range from 0 to 10 deg on that country. I already bought a couple (coat from surplus shop and leather skirt at Forever 21) I am still not satisfied with my clothes. So, I went to my favorite Ukay-ukay here at Roosevelt / Congressional to shop for my winter attire.
Which, I took the opportunity to share with you how I ukay ukay my clothes.
Before you find or decide to ukay, set first your goal. Why do you need to shop? What kinds of clothes you need to find? In my case, I had to find winter outfits.
When you're done and ready to pay
I cannot believe that I got everything for only P530! I remember buying one coat for 1k at retail brands which made me regret it after buying so many items half its cost. However; I enjoyed my ukay shopping cause it took me less than an hour to find l the things I need because I went there with a goal and a specified budget on mind.
Hope you learned from this post. Shall post ukay stuff soon!
