Online ukay-ukay shopping or thrift shopping became mainstream nowadays. And wearing an ukay clothing is considered cool rather than yucky. I went to a couple of ukay stores scattered around the metro and bought some good finds too. One should be really picky when ukay shopping though… my one really cheapo find is a black off-shoulder top that I wore for the music video we made last Christmas.
I got intrigued with online ukay shopping so I browsed though Multiply stores and one famous site (because it’s already featured on TV) caught my fancy. Most of her clothes are sold out, just minutes the album was posted. The photos are enticing too, clothes can pass up as brand new. So one Sunday evening, I was very excited to have my first bid of ukay clothes, I immediately posted “Buy it now” for this one…
Nice right? But after receiving it in the mail, my excitement went to disappointment =(. The dress is a little worn out that I expected. And the sequins details in the letters A and O (from the pic) are already falling off. I guess I’m not just lucky on my find because some girls are really raving about their ukay finds from that store. Well, it’s really difficult to find a keeper online. Buying clothes online isn’t my cup of tea because I have an abnormal body proportions, I have to fit the clothes before buying them. ONLINE ukay shopping isn’t for me, but still, YES, to ukay shopping!
