In some countries, people are now enjoying the start of fall season. Others might be preparing their closet for the winter to come. Meanwhile, here I am trapped in a place with a 40-degree heat temperature and high humidity. I’m not hating the weather though. In fact, I find it easier to get ready during summer time. There’s no need for me to layer a lot of clothes to keep me warm. Travel-wise, it allows me to save more space in my luggage as the majority of my summer clothes are thin and light.
I bought the tube top from the Philippines and it was only for 25.00 PHP or approximately almost 2 QAR. The black feather prints going on caught my attention. The material used for this top is thick enough to hide your strapless bra underneath.
Teamed the tube top with a high-waisted, pleated red culottes pants. The culottes’ price was only 150 PHP or 10 QAR. I got it also from a thrift store in the Philippines. Out of all the new fashion trends right now, I find culottes very comfortable to wear for summer. Actually, I stock up a couple of them more in my wardrobe! The main key when wearing a culottes pants is choosing the right footwear. Wear them with heels for an added height or slides/mules/sneakers for a cool casual look. Here, I opted for the slides that I got on sale for the price of 250 PHP (18 QAR).
To set everything off, a good pair of sunnies (250 PHP or 18 QAR ) and tassel earrings (10 QAR) definitely gave the whole look an extra touch of style.
Thrift shopping requires patience and time. You can score new & unique stuff or sometimes, items from one of the high-end brands if you’re good at it. I hope there are also plenty of thrift stores available here in Qatar just like in the Philippines. Do you also shop at thrift stores for your clothes?
