Don’t we just love clothes?
Dresses. Rompers. Shorts. Tank tops. Skirts.
A lot of people just love to dress up. But, do we really need to spend a lot of money just to have that #ootd goal? Well, this post will talk about fashion for less but it can get classy as branded clothes.
Familiar with the Filipino saying, “Nasa nag-dadala yan!”? Yes, I agree with that. I am a type of outfit addict who does not spend much on clothes (but my closet is about to burst *laughs).
I am, as what I say, a ‘Tiangge’ shopper. I love places which have lots of fashionable yet affordable clothes.
KZEN is one of my favorite shops. You can find this boutique at Robinsons Imus or Dasmarinas (I’m not sure if they have a branch in Metro Manila. I haven’t checked yet).
Another place to find classy clothes is through the internet… Instagram! There are a lot of IG shops which have great finds (I will be starting my own business soon. Watch out for that!). You just have to browse and search for tags such as #maxidress #virtualtiangge #igshops. You can try browsing djourshop, nakedclothingph, all149shoppe, 99shoppe, mitchyclosetph.
I also purchase second-hand clothes or what we call PRE-LOVED clothes. There are fashionistas who take care of their clothes that are good as brand new. This way, you can also get branded clothes at a low cost. I actually had an online shop which I sold second-hand clothes. But since I was teaching that time, I lacked time to manage my shop. But now, I have all the time since I will be a full-time mom soon. I will again open my online shop soooooon! *wink!
Another fashionistas’ haven stop for shopping is at St. Francis Square. You just have to be patient enough to roam around the place to get the cheapest price (because there are tiangges there which sell same designs and quality, but it’s more costly compared to other shops).
Another place to come for fashionable clothes is at Cash and Carry Mall located at Filmore Street, Palanan, Makati City. At the second floor, there lay the boutiques. Shops there are much more expensive than of KZEN and St. Francis Square, but there are shops which offer affordable clothes.
See? You really don’t need to be losing a lot of ‘blings’ just to look good. Play with colors and designs. And my secret?…
Be confident — That’s the trick!
Fashion isn’t really expensive. It really depends on how we bring ourselves and the level of confidence we have.
Most of all, BE YOU. Express the REAL you! ❤
You don’t need to mind what people will chit-chat about your outfit. What’s important is that you’re comfortable with what you wear! 🙂
