If you love digging through piles of clothes in ukay-ukay shops in search of hidden gems, then you're probably also familiar with thrift flipping. ICYDK, it's the process of altering pieces to make them fit better or create a new article of clothing. Not only will you make *unique* garments, but you'll also contribute less waste to the environment!

If you're looking for some inspo, TikTok (aka the ~school of life~) is full of thrift flip or upcycling videos. We decided to compile the best ones to help jumpstart your DIY journey. You can do these with clothes you have at home:

The first rule of an ukay-ukay veteran is to never skip any section of the shop—not even the granny-looking dresses. You can turn them into cute co-ords!

You can sew a garter into the hem of your newly-cropped hoodie to create a ruched finish. This will give you the illusion of a smaller waist.

We're obsessed with how she transformed a ~meh~ outfit into a velvet three-piece set—complete with a scrunchie!

Just wanted to say that I did this set at 5am, because I couldn’t sleep. ##foru ##foryourpage ##thriftflip ##sewing ##diy ##outfit

Deconstructing clothes can be hard if you're a beginner. You may opt for embroidering flowers into your clothes to really personalize them.

Thrift flipping isn't just limited to sewing. You can also ~paint~ your clothes to give them an artsy feel.

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.

Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.

And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.
