Ukay-ukay is having a moment right now, and for all the right reasons. Secondhand clothing is a sustainable alternative to purchasing fast fashion, and it’s also so much cheaper than your go-to brands. The only thing is, thrifting requires a very special trait not many of us are blessed with: you’ll have to have be extra matiyaga if you want to unearth the best ukay finds that are on-trend and on-brand with your personal style. One YouTuber, however, took matters into her own hands and actually transformed her ukay-ukay purchases into entirely new sets of outfits.

YouTuber Ashley Garcia recently uploaded a vlog showing how she “thrift-flips” items she bought from various ukay-ukay stores. With a handy sewing machine by her side, Ashley first showed how she wanted to transform an oversized button-down (which she bought for only P15!) into a set of coordinates. She also shared how her first try wasn’t exactly how she wanted the co-ords to look like, which just goes to show that doing thrift-flips will take some trial-and-error and a dose of patience.

No regrets though, because the end products of Ashley’s transformation process were uh-ma-zing, so it seems that doing thrift flips is actually worth it if you’re patient and creative enough!
