Baguio thrift finds

Hello!

I've been itching to blog about my Baguio experience ever since I arrived Manila. Baguio is a big part of my childhood life and it's been years since I was able to visit again. Thanks to Giselle and the rest of the Cosplay Fever team for inviting me and also to Sammy Magsino and her family for the accommodation. I look forward on working with you again. <3

Before I write about my Baguio trip, I'd like to share first my haul on our ukay-ukay/thrift escapade. Baguio is the home of the thrift stores here in the Philippines and as a thrift-shopper myself, it's interesting to go and take a look on it's roots. Here are my finds:

Cute cream blouse that I could wear with my casual lolita.

Fur neck warmers.
I got another one of this in gray color but I lost it during my travel home. D: *slashwrist*

Vintage dress. I'll just be replacing the lace with a better one and will add bows for my sweet lolita. :3

Chiffon dress with paisley print.
 I am currently addicted with this kind of dresses because I can't bear the summer heat. It's too hot for lolita. >.<
Knit berets.

Black pumps with heart buckles. <3

And the haul of my impulsive buys. lol. I'm selling some of them now in my page.

  1. super amazing finds, my thrift stores are this cool, but we have Buffulo Exchanges everywhere and 'vintage boutiques' and between them both, we have no cute finds.

  2. @pinkzombies,

    thanks. Most of the thrift stores here in the Philippines import goods from neighboring countries like Hongkong, Korea, and Japan that's why it's easy to look for Asian fashion treasures. :D
