ukay ukay not

meet up with my friends last night at the Mall of Asia and before dinner we decided to shop, and this is why i hate shopping at the malls... you see a beautiful dress but the price is beautiful too (read: expensive)
when we entered maldita shop this is the dress that caught my attention, i love the details on its collar and found out that it has pearls as well (hmmmm reason why the dress is expensive? but i cant be real pearls noh!)
waaaaa i cant forced myself to shell out 1900 pesos for this single dress! arghhh no matter how much i loved it i just have to let it go...

the most expensive dress i bought from ukay ukay cost me 225 pesos and i already call it expensive, sigh really once you go ukay ukay shopping you cant go back to the "mall prices"

so if i buy this single dress its already equivalent to more than 8 ukay ukay dresses!!!

so what do you think?

polli polli dress

aint this dress uber cute? as i have said before, buying stuff from ukay ukay not only save you big bucks but also you get to have unique items. i'd love to show meow self wearing this dress but till now i haven't got the time to wash this dress hehehe
by the way i bought this polli polli dress from ukay ukay but its what you'll call old brand new, coz its already old but still new since it still have the tag on when i got it.

but you really gotta check out the details, am just not sure if this is hand embroidered.

ukay ukay store in makati

Found this quaint ukay ukay store at Cityland Tower 8 in Pasong Tamo, Makati. It's ordinary but not your typical ukay-ukay store. Most of the items are really cute and not used, they even have tags attached to the clothes (i bought a really nice dress from here which i will post separately).

I think i find a treasure store because they also sell signature items, especially bags such as Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, Coach, etc. at a reasonable price. You get to own the real deal and not some cheap imitation. Oopps it feels like i'm revealing a treasure loot here LOL , but they're shop is a bit hard to find but you can always ask the guard, it's only at the ground floor of Cityland 8. By the way the name of this ukay ukay store is Connors Retro Clothing

I also liked the fact that the store doesn't smell musty or your typical ukay ukay smell (ukay ukay shoppers would know what smell i'm talking about).

original DKNY purse for £3

original Fendi bag for £2

i actually swiped this ukay ukay from UK for reals!!! got this are from Shiela but with her permission of course :)

i was really drooling over her fabulous finds in the car boot sale, which is kinda like a mobile ukay ukay. actually Car boot sales are a mainly British form of market in which private individuals come together to sell household and garden goods. The term refers to the selling of items from a car's bootor trunk. Although a small proportion of sellers are professional traders selling new goods or seconds, the goods on sale are often used but no longer wanted personal possessions. Car boot sales are a way of focusing a large group of people in one place to recycle still useful but unwanted domestic items that previously would have been thrown away. Car boot sales generally take place within the summer months.

Bien's messenger bag... according to him it is made of real leather and he has been scouring boutiques to find a simple leather messenger bag and had no luck, till one fine day he visited a nice ukay ukay shop in cubao. sorry my photo doesnt give justice to this nice ukay ukay find.

ukay ukay in the USA

wow i didnt realized till one of my readers informed me that there is a sort of ukay ukay in the USA as well, geesh a first world country selling ukay ukay stuff!!! so i immediately checked out Buffalo Exchange and i'm amazed to learn that it has been around for more than 30 years now. Their first store opened on 1974 in Tucson, Arizona by Kerstin and Spencer Block... the very first store that bought, sold, traded, and took clothing items and accessories on consignment.

Buffalo Exchange is unique because clothing and accessories are bought, sold and traded directly with store customers. You just bring in your old clothes or stuff for trade or cash on the spot! Buffalo Exchange will buy quality items that can be resold, making our selection eclectic and fun. And like in the true nature of ukay ukay you get to designer wear, vintage, jeans, leather, great basics, and irresistible one-of-a-kind items. Their tagline - Buffalo Exchange...where recycling is always in style.

Oh diba ang tarush!!!! So my readers from the USA check out Buffalo Exchange stores and you might get the best deal, dont forget to send me your ukay ukay finds :)
