P150 Vintage Tank Dress from our Neighborhood Ukay-Ukay Shop

A few steps from where I live lies an ukay-ukay shop (thrift store) that sells an assortment of cheap, vintage clothes. I have already bought several items from them before, but this is the first time I’m blogging about my ukay-ukay purchase. It’s a purple vintage tank dress which I got for only P150. Talk about bargain hunting/budget shopping.

What made me decide to buy this dress was the unique design of its lower body. You see, the uneven, short stitches (pleats) make it appear like a wide, balloon skirt. When I tried the dress on, I instantly fell in love with the volume made by those artsy pleats. I imagined myself wearing it in the office topped with a white cardigan to make it a bit formal. Or just as it is when I hit the mall with the boyfriend.

I really like this dress. It’s great I found this in our neighborhood ukay-ukay shop before somebody else gets it. Ukay-ukay shops are love. One man’s trash is indeed another man’s treasure.

Oh and, if ever you get to pass thru Nagtahan area, check this ukay-ukay shop on J.P. Laurel St., just in front of Max’s Restaurant. Their vintage dresses sell for P150 only. Their vintage tops and skirts are cheaper at P100 per piece. They also have vintage shoes and men’s apparel on display.

  1. I am really not into ukay-ukay. Haven't tried shopping there.

  2. @MinnieRunner: yeah, some people are into it, some people are not. i belong to the former.i love ukay fashion! :)

  3. I started loving ukay ukay about a decade ago. Found so many treasures in them! If you're good and lucky, you can even find stuff that are brand new and with tags.
