Thrift treasures: 18th Collection

5:56 PM

For my debut collection, I offered a good mix of street-style and summer clothes.

Particularly for this collection, I couldn't help but keep this unique black chiffon skirt with gray velvet lining and green blazer. But since I haven't worn them yet, maybe I'll still change my mind and sell them next collection. Hihi.

It was a very difficult decision to let go of this draping top that I found. I really, really, really like it (sob). However, I couldn't keep everything or else, I would be depriving the collection of more lovely items (the fact that I already took away two).

    well about ukay hunting in Quiapo...hmmm maliit o malaki talagang sinusuyod ko!at nung sinama ko yung officemate ko napagod xa haha!I don't want to miss a single rack that's why my strategy when ukay hunting to big ukay stores is to search for the women's area, then start on the first rack then on to the next til I reach the last rack.hehe o di ba talagang nasuyod ko?haha! ako, lahat ng magaganda kukunin ko then I'll segregate later kung ano yung kasya skin at kung ano yung mgugustuhan ng mga customers ko. I don't buy items in new arrivals dahil mahal, but if it' worth the price (my mantra when ukay shopping) go and buy it!haha!
