DIY ripped black skinny jeans

Here’s how I manage to do my own version of ripped jeans. Note that this is actually my first one so basically I didn’t know what are the necessary things to do, so I didn’t expect it to be perfect.

I got:

◽a pair of scissors (sharp one)

◽black skinny jeans ( I bought from UKAY-UKAY)

◽a spoon

What I did, I wore the tight jeans. Wearing it could give you a balance view to measure on where to rip the best part, since we have different likings to which part of the legs to show off. When identified, cut it from side to side or at any lenght you want. As to mine, I cut it althrough the front, at the knee part. I cut like 0.3 cm thick of the fabric and do the same with the other leg.

I added 2 more short cuts above the right knee rip to add more sassy style. You can add as much as you want if you wanted it more stylish. Just be careful, there should be no room for mistakes, every cut will never be undone.

After cutting, take it off. Scrape off the edges of the cut part using a spoon to produce  some tattered effect on the jeans.

And that’s it! In an instant, I got my DIY ripped black skinny jeans. So simple and it only costs me Php 115.

If you feel unsure of doing it correctly, better off try an old jeans or buy something from UKAY just as I did than trying directly on your signature pants. Practice makes perfect! Thanks for reading!

Querky Little thing called Hairagami

We we’re out to buy some groceries and I came accross this querky little thing called Hairagami. I saw it from a small stall selling lots of various fashion and fun accessories all at Php 20. This how it looks like:

I got interested with the thing so I bought one. The Hairagami was actually a hair accessory where it could style your hair on different rolls. It is actually  2 plastic thing inside a fabric, attached. If you press and fold its every end, the plastic rolls towards the center.

Along with it is an instruction pad how to use it. The front suggests different styles you can make. And the back part shows the instructions how to do it.

That night, I tried to use it. I rolled it up like a bun, its a messy bun though…and let it as is ’till I woke up the next day. And to my surprise, I had gorgeous curls after I unpinned the Hairagami out of my head. Let me show you the random curls.

This thing isn’t actually for curling. But will definitely curl after long hours of using. Let me show you my few tries on styling with the Hairagami. It isn’t the best yet, but will definitely get the hang of it.

Thanks for reading! If you happen to find this thing on the market, try to grab one, you’ll definitely enjoy your hair styling with it. Chow!

Fashionable Ukay-Ukay Picks

With everything I wear, I make it sure I’m comfortable with it whether it’s classic tees, shorts, jeans,casual to formal or corporate. I ain’t typical fashionista at all. Maybe because, I felt uneasy with getting too much attention with querky and too accessorized #ootd. I greatly prefer classic styles,not too printed and never revealing. I also got this thing on Korean Fashion. They’re just so me…loose and comfy.

Sadly, when we talk about fashion, it follows luxury these days. Clothings had risen its status quo where brand has been the value of fashion. Unfortunately,  those fashion-hooked years are during teens,and you are yet completely dependent with your parent’s income,where your fashion craves are the least priority, eh? But, keep your head up still. Fashionable wears can still be at hand with – UKAY UKAY!

Here are some reasons why I love to buy on UKAY- UKAY Shops:

✔Budget Friendly👛

✔Stylish👚

✔You’ll never get to run into someone with the same outfit🚷

✔Quality-wise 🆗(Depending on brand)

✔Authentic items are available at LOW price👇

✔Most of my sizes are available❗👗

With most girls on their teenage years, they spend long hours switching and taking off clothes to wear on a Wednesday Free day, commonly called Wash Day on schools. I personally, hates to wear the same clothes every week during Wash days, even in a month. You are too, aren’t you? ( insert smirk).. Well, you feel me, I feel yah..

Good thing UKAY-UKAY Shops are available. For me, I don’t see it as dirty stores full of pre-loved items. They were just like my sister’s before, and since she grew up, it has to be passed on to a younger fit, and that’s me 😀 … yeah, I’m dead used to that situation. But there are actually good-as-new items with even price tags,too.

Let me share you some of my UKAY-UKAY picks of  early 2016:

#11458028649337Blouse:  Php 100 ( inside Waltermart, Calamba) ; Shorts: Php 30 (along Pedro Gil Ave. )

I love lace fabrics especially floral. It’s girly. The front was not actually revealing, because it has a black lining under. However the back part hasn’t, so I usually where this with a sweater.

The shorts are perfect for my body shape. It’s not too short, good size for petite ones like me. The style was good too since I’m not a fat ass type,so perfect to put some volume. lol

#2 1458028669628 Blouse:  Php 100 ( along Kalaw ave)

This blouse actually fit for semi-formal wears paired with a high heeled close shoes. The garterized bottom could hold the fabric up looking inserted whithout actually inserting it under your pants or skirt. Or you can just show it by dragging it down a little.

#31458028691628Blouse: Php 115 (Along Kalaw Ave) ; Shorts:  Php 20 ( Checkpoint Intersection)

The blouse was a chiffon type fabric. The color was my favorite. The folded lines and the ribbon are so classy. It fits for special occasions. The fabric really looked expensive. It has a Korean Brand, so I didn’t hesitate to grab it.

I really love shorts that actually looked like a skirt. It looked girly but it was actually safe for active motions. It’s really comfy. The color was actually nude. There might be some effects on camera taht it turned peach.

Lastly,

1458028620838Blouse: Php 100 ( along Kalaw Ave)

This is really my favorite above all. The fabric was soft and it has a good fit. The sleeves are perfect, not too tight, not too loose. The details of the fabric too is really amazing. The black accent on collar and end sleeve are synthetic leather. This one is like forever 21’s. The brand was in Chinese character. Perfect for corporate wear but it would go with any casual bottoms,too.

See that? If you only give ample time to search for your styles, you can actually find them on UKAY UKAY Shops. It doesn’t have to be that costly to be fashionable. Be more resourceful. It just takes You, and a little budget.

PS. This one is from a shop along Kalaw Ave, too:FB_IMG_1458060125839
