Here's another post from the past (Christmas eve 2011) for my FB account, t'was created to spread some Ukay fashion... though our dinner was in Manila Hotel yet, the ukay store was in Fairview, Quezon City.

On a tight budget for fashion? Go Vintage Shopping! ♥♥♥
No matter how you call it, be it pre-loved items, thrift stores, secondhand stuff, garage sales, bargain hunts, or the most commonly used term UKAY UKAY. It is the place to be for budget conscious fashionistas, where one can find an interesting piece of clothing at an inexpensive price.
While others may find it distasteful to don anything less than brand new, a lot of fashionistas and even affluent-looking individuals have subscribe to the school of thought that, one person's junk is another person's treasure. So they sweat their butts out, looking for that one of a kind piece of clothing in thrift stores.
And guess what? I also go for ukay fashions, :) I do vintage shopping haunts, brave the crush of people and endure the intolerable heat and strange smells of these shopping shacks.

I rolled up the leg pants to make it a 3/4 length pants jumpsuit, accessorize with a belt and finish off the look with a green suede ankle bootie.

So if you are on a limited budget but still want to look GLAMOROUS, you just have to be RESOURCEFUL!
Have a great look!
Its more fun being resourceful in QC!
