I've had this dress for a couple of months now. I love it to bits, but I'm too chicken to wear it out in public! It's a bright lime color so I'm afraid that I might be stared at - in a bad way. Lol. I like how it looks on me though since I'm light enough to not look that ridiculous in it. Where did I get it you ask? It's thrifted! It was supposed to be up at Ukay Manila.

I love the classic cut and the detail on the neckline

Ukay-ukay outfits

You may (or may not) know that I'm the buyer for the Ukay Manila Store. I visit ukay stores all over the metro to find unique pieces to sell on the online store I co-own. I'm proud to say that the store has been successful in its first year, but more than that, I'm proud that I don't just sell ukay-ukay - I live in it!

There are some pieces that I simply don't have the heart to sell. Sometimes, I find something that I know won't sell, but it's just too unique or cheap to not buy. There are so many beautiful things in an ukay, more than what you'll find in a run-of-the-mill department store. Cheaper, too. That's why most of the clothes I have in my wardrobe are thrifted.

Here are a few outfits I came up with in a fit of boredom. I took pictures so I'll remember to wear them since I absolutely hate being late just because I keep changing my clothes!
