March Thrift Haul!

I personally love thrift shopping and I've always been a fan since my mom introduced me to Divisoria and 168 mall. This may not be true for some, but I pertain to thrift shopping when 1.) I go to boutiques which sell cheap but trendy garments and 2.) when I buy hand-me-downs from thrift shops where most of the garments are still in good condition. To be honest, the second one is my favorite because rummaging through the racks of clothing would always make me feel all giddy as if I'm about to find the needle in the haystack. Even if they sell the cheapest, there are true gems out there! Also, if you're lucky enough, you could even score branded ones. 

Going to a thrift shop was the best idea to kickstart March. Just three weeks ago, I felt the urge to visit this store in Makati and I certainly wasn't disappointed. I went home with a couple of purchases and here are two of my favorites! 

Forgive the wrinkled garments, my bad. Haha. 

Ralph Lauren Highwaist Palazzo in Navy Blue

Fit? Check!
Length? Meh. I'm planning on turning this one into a culotte. 
Price? 20 Pesos!

Calvin Klein Highwaist Denim Jeans

Fit? Check!
Length? Check! 
Price? 20 Pesos!
Also, I'm still thinking if I should turn rip it up a little. Hmm.

YUP! I got both of these bottoms just for 40 Pesos in total. Surprised? I was too. You see, thrift shopping isn't really that bad. If you're planning on thrift shopping, I might as well give you some tips!

1. Always double check for damages. 
2. If you won't be able to fit it in the store, make sure that it came with your size and with your desired style. Think it through!
3. If you can't imagine yourself wearing it and if you're just amazed at how cheap it retails. Don't buy it! 
4. Give some garments a chance. A little DIY/Transformation project would be fun.
5. Always laundry it properly before adding it to your wardrobe. I personally like to soak it first in hot water before putting it in the laundry (thanks to a good friend's advice!).

That's about it, 
Tell me about your thrift tales!
