If you thought a 500-peso budget is already cost-effective for shopping clothes, wait ’til you see style influencer Laureen Uy create looks with an even smaller budget.
Uy, known for her ukay-ukay adventures such as the 500-peso challenge and designer item finds, goes to the thrift store yet again in another video on her Youtube channel. “Did another ukay-ukay vlog and it’s harder this time,” she writes in her video’s description.
This time, the style icon has to create looks for only PhP 200.
As per usual, Uy has managed to nail the challenge with three looks in total: a bright, color-blocked outfit, a casual look in denim, and a beige-toned, feminine ensemble.
While on the hunt for clothes at the Makati Cinema Square, Uy also shares some valuable tips on how to find the best deals and steals in thrift shops.
“‘Wag muna kayo sa new arrivals,” she says. “Pumunta muna kayo sa sale items kasi kapag sale, mas mura.”
She also advised to check clothes’ tags as it could be branded or even better, a designer item.
Most importantly, Uy says patience is key. “Kailangan talaga i-check niyo lahat ng racks para makakita kayo ng maganda talaga,” she explains. “Kailangan i-check niyo lahat kasi hindi niyo alam, makakahanap pa pala kayo ng better.”
