Win a P100 Ukay Manila Gift Card!

It's no secret that I LUUUURVE ukay ukays (thrift stores). There's something fulfilling about scoring a great dress among racks and racks of clothes. It's the thrill of the hunt, as they say, and in this case, it's the thrill of a bargain hunt. My best ukay find so far has got to be this wedding dress that I got for a mere P100!

It doesn't look that great yet, as I still have to make some alterations to it. STILL. P100.
When I say I buy everything from ukay shops, I mean it.

The white cardigan and the red dress that I wore to The Vanity Fair are all thrifted.
This gray cover up that is perfect for taking the spotlight away from my thunder arms.

The dress and the pink cover up that I passed off as Urban Chic to the Sony 3D World Launch, yup, you guessed it: THRIFTED.

Even to this very basic white shirt that's perfect for gallivanting in the city.
But not everyone's blessed with enough ukay mojo to score it big in thrift stores. I myself wish to get a  Marc Jacobs bag or a Vivienne Westwood somewhere in those piles and piles of clothes (hey, a girl can wish!) And for those who do not have the time nor the patience to scour ukay shops, there's Ukay Manila.

Unlike most online thrift stores, Ukay Manila is like your personal ukay shopper. You can be sure that what you're getting are truly one of a kind pieces. I personally haven't bought anything from the store as they have yet to stock on plus size clothes (please =D), but I have always been in awe of the collections they come up every month. I even check the online store before I hit ukay shops just to have an idea of what to buy for myself. I'm also waiting for their shoe line Love Walks In to restock so I can get a pair.

But if you're not like me who has the patience to go through rows and rows of clothes, great news! Ukay Manila just launched their new Ukay Manila gift cards! You can give them away to friends, girlfriends, aunts, sisters, and practically anyone who would appreciate a romantic, vintage-feel style to their wardrobe.

But wait, there's more. Ukay Manila is giving away 10 P100 Gift Cards to 10 bloggers! Here's how:

In an ukay place in Cavite :) They have a nice selection of dresses there. They also dont discriminate brands, so if you're really lucky, you can even get a Calvin Klein dress with the tag on for 180 or cheaper :)
