Experimenting with different styles and trends is always a great way to stay creative and progressive, much like painting, creating music or cooking. I'm sure you're aware that fashion is also another form of art where one's creativity is expressed through articles of clothing. I usually like to change my style based on the photographers that I work with too. All photographers have different styles and perspectives too, so when you're able to align with your photographer, it makes it easier to conceptualize ideas for shoots.
Today I wanted to try my new American Apparel jacket that I just so happened to have thrifted last weekend =). I'm so happy because it's probably the second best piece of clothing I've been able to find here in Manila. Thrifting is such a fun and a rewarding experience if you're happy to go out of the way to visit the thrift stores. The stores I usually visit where I've been successful with grabbing a bargain (and treasure), are usually located around Quezon City, Kamuning and Cubao areas. Shirts are usually priced from 150-220 pesos, but of course can be discounted depending on how many shirts you buy. Thrift store owners don't necessarily know much about the brands they cater, so it all comes down to time and having the right eye so you can segregate what's worthy and what's not.
Fashion, like art, helps to create you! Be unique...be creative...be YOU!
