Thrift Haul #1: Sweaters & Long Sleeves

I have always been skeptical in buying in thrift stores, or known here as Ukay-Ukay, because my mom keeps telling me that the items being sold are from dead people (I would immediately think of ghosts).All of those beliefs changed after watching Dollastic and Coolirpa in Youtube. I became fascinated in thrifting because of them. I also thought of it as a way of recycling which could benefit the Earth since the fashion industry is one of the large contributors in pollution (learned that from coolirpa).

I was so excited when my dad paid us a visit and suddenly offered to take my sister and I to go thrifting. Today was the day! However, my sister didn’t come with us since she has an exhibit for school. 

My Dad was supposed to take me in a thrift store near his house but since I wasn’t feeling well we went to a store near my grandparent’s house. We went thrifting in a store inside our subdivision and they’re on a last day sale and everything was P10-20 pesos. I was like “WOW” and hurriedly checked clothes. My dad helped me search since almost all of the items are for women. And so here is my first-ever thrift haul.

I was able to buy 7 items(clothes for my sister are included) and the total cost was only P100. 

Item #1: blue long-sleeved shirt P10

Item #2: Black lace shirt dress P10 – the sleeves were kinda itchy 

Item #3: Black long sleeves shirt P10

Item #4: Grey graphic sweater P20 – my dad found this sweater and I find it really cute

Item #5: Floral graphic sweater  P10 – another find by my dad

Item #6: Grey jacket P20- not really sure if it’s a jacket but this is my fave find. Once I took it from the rack, I didn’t let it go

Item #7: Light blue long sleeves P10 – it’s stretchy. my dad found this.


Welcome to my randomness

This blog will serve as an outlet of my random thoughts and interests. From dollhouses to Kpop, up to life reflections and questions about the universe.  I hope this blog will help me reflect on myself and to get back on my passion which is writing.
