If you've been noticing, I've been wearing some pieces that are very versatile and comfy. I find these pieces more stylish and elegant, also wouldn't broke my bank account.
Just like my recent affair with boyfriend shirts.
So like for every quarter of the month, I spent my two Saturdays to hunt for the good quality boyfriend shirts, with good fabrics and buttons.
Nope we are talking about hunting the curated boutique stores, and designer closets here.
I'm talking about the more 'pang-masa' way of shopping - going to ukay-ukay stores!
I know right, ukay-ukay stores are full of surprising pieces!
You just have to be ready with your gears (like super comfy clothes, a bigger shopping bag, and sanitizer of course) before attacking these cool stores.
I must say I'm good at this. I love checking on men's shirts and picking-up huge size (around size 34 to 39) well, the bigger the better because I can easily play with it with my needles and scissors.
Men's shirt just like T.M. Lewin's that last longer than other brands. It just always happen that I've always got T.M Lewin shirt from thrift stores, and never think twice to buy it. These shirts from thrift stores cost me Php80.00 (roughly $2.00) per piece!
I cut-out the excess sleeves based on my desired length, then sew the ends. Then I rolled the sleeve up to my elbow.
Add with a little of imagination, aaand Yey! It's my winning shirt that I could wear in whatever style that I want.
