I know a lot of people who think tiangge clothes easily wear out, age, and tear. It must be because of the price difference, because when it comes to clothes, you get what you pay for, right? Well, I dunno if I’m just lucky, but some of the items I posted here, like the pink dress, the lace top, the polo, and the leopard pants, have been my closet staples for around 3-4 years now, and they’re still holding up just fine 😀 And I wear them often because we didn’t have uniforms in university. The dress and the polo even made it to my yearbook 🙂 yup, those are my graduation photos.
My tip for scoring bazaar finds that will last you a couple of years? Look at how they’re stitched up. Make sure they’re tight and aren’t frayed when you buy them, and always ask for new stocks.
I still have other know-how’s to share on finding adorable and long-lasting bazaar outfits that are worth your money and closet space, but I’ll save them for another entry 😀 This is it for now 🙂
