Thrifting or ukay-ukay shopping is becoming more and more prominent in the local fashion scene. More people have been realizing how great secondhand shopping really is! For starters, it’s more sustainable compared to buying brand new. Plus, it’s also quite affordable for the most part.  

What's more, it can also get you the most unique pieces. This is the case of TikToker Laura Mae Gregorio, who loves posting her ukay-ukay finds and outfits on her social media accounts.

 

In some of Laura's thrifting adventures, she managed to snag some unique pieces. Among others, she was able to find a purple Chanel bag, and even a pair of Roger Vivier heels!

In an interview with Preview, Laura describes her style as "eclectic and fun" inspired by her favorite celebrities and K-drama stars. We can definitely learn a thing or two from her cute and fun style! Scroll ahead!

Outfits from Laura Mae Gregorio that will inspire you to incorporate pieces from ukay-ukay:

1. This blue, 0ff-the-shoulder, striped dress already stands out on its own, but Laura takes it up a notch with the use of accessories. The brown belt, rattan bag, statement earrings, and headband all elevate the whole look! The beautiful strappy heels are Manolo Blahniks, which Laura scored from ukay-ukay.

Ready to ukay yourself? Laura shared the most helpful advice:

  1. Comfort is key when you're shopping. Wear comfortable, functional clothes for a long day of thrifting.
  2. Don't forget to bring your own eco bag for your purchases!
  3. As for the actual shopping experience, Laura reminds to pay attention to details like holes and stains. You need to make sure that you're getting your money's worth!
  4. Don’t be afraid to haggle! Attempting to bargain for the price of an item won’t hurt.
  5. "Enjoy and flex it to the world." You worked hard to put this 'fit together—go forth and document it on the 'gram and Tiktok, just like Laura!
