6 Reasons why I buy used clothes (and the impending rise of fast fashion)

I recently had another ukay-ukay haul with my sister and a friend. This time, we budgeted 500PHP each, and it took us 3 hours to be able to use up our money.

Online Shopping Madness: Monica’s Closet

Monica’s Closet is an all-around web shop that caters to every girly-girl’s needs. Well, it’s not like I’m girly, but sometimes I fall for all the kawaii stuff available in the market, especially if they’re for cheap and I dress up cute sometimes.

Last time I saw my unni’s was like 2 months ago, so we headed to Abreeza mall to catch up with each other.
