THRIFTED BOOTS :3

Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world! I conquer mine with these thrifted boots! :)) The first time I got into thrift shopping was when I was in high school! Me and my friends would set a day where we just walk around the city, and look for vintage finds. I remember the first "ukay-ukay" I bought were floral skirts. And since then, I've been every ukay-ukay shops' suki! :) So for tonight, I'm going to share to you a few of my thrifted booties!



Dark brown boots with fringe details. I got this at a thrift store in Sta. Mesa, near my sister's house. I think i bought this for only a hundred and fifty? Ukay ukay in Manila is a bit pricey than here in Iligan. I like wearing these with skinny jeans or with my maxi skirts. But for some other girls, this would definitely look gorgeous with short flowy dresses to go with the boho touch of the look.



I got this one with the other bootie mentioned above, and what I like on this one is that I can wear it most especially during rainy seasons. It doesn't get wet on the inside because of the type of fabric used. And plus, it's flat which I love. Originally, the holes seen on the fourth picture was supposed to have fringes on them, but I don't like it because it looks costumey for me. I don't want eyes staring at me. Haha! I got this for only 200 pesos only.



Now, I've realized that almost all my boots have fringe details on them! And I don't even like fringe details on my boots! Well anyway, this one I got from a lady selling ukay ukay shoes on the street. Normally here in Iligan, ukay ukay can be found anywhere even in the corners of the street. Do you know what I mean? They don't have stores where they display their items. Kahit saan ka lumingon, may nakadisplay na ukay ukay sa kalsada. Heaven! Haha. Funny because I even lay- awayed this one! I don't have enough money with me that time, and I wanted to buy this one for a shoot so I asked the lady to reserve it for me, and promised to buy it as soon as she starts displaying again. Displaying?? hehe I love boho looks, so this one really had to be on my shoe rack!


This one I got for only 80 pesos. I like the color and the fur details of it. I love wearing this with skinny jeans and loose shirts. One thing I hate about this one, is that the sole of it is too thin and it's a bit too small for me. I don't know the word for intrada in English! hehe The length is okay but the width in the front is too small for my feet.

This would be my first ever thrifted boots! I remember the reason why I bought this one was because of the K-Pop Style trending in fashion that time. It looks so cute, but I'm just not the heel-wearing type of girl. I only wore this once! I think I'll just hold a give away on this one soon! Maybe when I reach 24 followers, since my birthday falls on the 24th of January. :))

I'm thinking about posting outfits wearing these boots, how'd you like that? I'll be posting more photos of my thrifted boots soon. Have a good night everyone! :3


the devil wears ukay =*.*=

  2. Just when I was thinking of looking for boots in thrift shops I read this! I especially like the blue one. :) But the second one looks practical and comfortable.

    1. Yup, it is very comfortable and I can easily mix and match it with my clothes. But, it's a bit bigger than my size. :\

  3. Nice boots! You are right, ukay-ukay items in Manila are pricey and more so, in Baguio. Para ka na ring bumili ng bagong damit sa tiangge or mall. But anyway, I think you can still find good ukay-ukay shops here in Manila but you just need to be patient in looking for these shops. Wish I could find boots like those here in Manila. :)

    1. I've never been to Baguio, and I heard they have lots of ukay ukay! Too bad, I never had the time to look for more thrift shops while I was in Manila. Thanks anyway!:*

  4. My classmate also loves to get her shoes at "ukay" shops. I usually shop for dresses and skirts though never shoes. Now I think I'm going to get shoes too! Yipee. My classmate usually gets her boots at around 50php and they're lovely. I think she gets them near Far Far Sea. How come I never find any decent shoes like yours whenever I pass thrift shops by Pala-o market? TT_TT
