I got this frayed lace top from Ukayista, a Facebook store that sells vintage finds. The name Ukayista is coined from the term ukay-ukay, a Filipino word for stores that sell second hand or vintage. These stores are popular in Baguio, and in Cubao, there is a building (4 floors) dedicated to these shops – a fashion stylist’s paradise. Prices here can go for as low as 50 cents! For those who have no patience in rummaging through piles and racks of moldy-smelling clothes to find a treasure, Ukayista is a great resource because she does all the curating and her prices are under $10. She has a good eye and a great sense of style.
In Toronto, you can find good vintage stores in Kensington Market, but prices are a lot higher.
What do you guys think?
Thanks for dropping by!
