football shirt

i guess most men like this kind of football shirt even though they dont play football in real life hehehe. i'm not sure but i think this adidas football shirt with LA Galaxy patch is the same jersey worn by david beckham.

uh huh, sir david beckham is that you? LOL

uhmmmm i think this shirt has a side effect, it kinda makes you "maangas" LOL

peace bien, thanks for gracing my blog again :)

messenger bag

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 :)

cymbie brags that this leather bag (Preston & York) is brand new, originally priced at 390 pesos but because of her charm she only paid 300 pesos :) it was even covered in plastic and have a tag. and the key that was included in the purchase is soo cute.

flying cat

oh yeah, this cat is flying high with her ukay ukay pants! :)

i dont normally buy jeans anywhere since i'm having a hard time finding the right fit, but when i saw this pants from an ukay ukay store somewhere in pasig, i had to try it on. i was attracted to the detailed embroidery design it has on the back pockets.  and guess what, i bought this pants way before this emboridered pants thingy became trendy here in the philippines... so who says the stuff you can buy from ukay ukay are laos or outdated already?  

fashion on a budget

enjoy the unique ukay-ukay shopping experience, stay chic and fashionable without hurting your budget - get ready to look like a million bucks for less
