Went thrifting last Sunday and came home with four tops, a funny knitted pullover (it has a silver “Hepburn” patch on front), a pair of flats, and the best cardigan thing in the whole wide world!
Quick snap of everything:
Flats; cloth lining, rubber sole. I’m not squeamish when it comes to buying used footwear (but I rarely do; I think the last time I bought shoes from ukay was… eight years ago?) so long as I can wash it like I do clothes. For this pair: washed and scrubbed with detergent and an old toothbrush, air dried out in my balcony (boyfriend told me to keep it away from the sun), and then sprayed with Lysol. I must remember to buy insoles.
THE BEST CARDIGAN THING IN THE WORLD! Boyfriend HATES it but I adore it; it’s one of my favorite things in my wardrobe now. At first, I thought they were sequined ducks but they look more like swans now. Boyfriend thinks they could be swans with long legs, cranes, ostriches, or emus. I feel like a grandmother AND I LOVE IT.
I usually go to the ukay store in the Anonas LRT2 station (I pass by this place everyday on my way to work but I still don’t know the name). I was a little miffed that they miscalculated my purchases and overcharged me but it’s all right. I spent a little less than what I would on a pair of brand new wedges or the equivalent of 36 packs of Marlboro Reds bought from my neighborhood grocery.
Ew, I should quit smoking soon.
