We're letting you in on the trendiest and most affordable shopping nooks.

Let's cut to the chase: Where exactly do the fashion girls get those sweet, whimsical dresses? You know, those flattering frocks with hints of cottagecore, mixed with the flounce and moodiness of Cecille Bahnsen's Spring 2021 Ready-To-Wear collection, as well as the tropical magnificence of Fernando Amorsolo's linen-clad muses? So chic.

You'll definitely find them on luxury racks. However, if you're not too keen on splurging on designer dresses, we suggest that you harvest some goodies from curated ukay-ukays on Instagram.These clothes were handpicked from local ukay-ukays by the shop owners, and resold on their respective Instagram shops as themed collections.  If you haven't tried online thrifting yet, now's your chance. Believe us, these shops are gold mines! 

Sold? Check out our picks below!
