Tutuban Night Market Media Fashion Challenge!

My routine is simple, to always style myself by mixing and matching the clothes that is ONLY AVAILABLE in my closet. Taking in consideration sometimes what's appropriate for the event, the weather, etc. I'm so used to recycling my clothes since I only have few. And to experience thrift shop or night market to see what's in store for me could be something worth considering I guess.
It's common for us Filipino's to wait for "Ber" months to arrive, before buying gifts for Christmas. Well, it's because that is the time when malls and tiangge lower their prices to attract customers. All goods, can be purchased in a very low price! Hooray for the Fashionistas alike as we all know, where we can spend our penny and dime.
In light of "Ber" months brouhaha, night markets here in the Philippines like in TutubanDivisoria were all starting to make noise as owners also started setting their store in the streets when the dusk arrived.

Last Wednesday I was invited to try the Media Fashion Challenge held in Tutuban. I accepted the challenge since I have never been on the other side of Divisoria. Deep inside, I'm nervous because my knowledge in fashion is not that broad compared to my competitors.

We were given a P 1, 000 each and tasked to buy clothes for our models. The challenging part for me is to think of an exquisite Casual Attire and the time pressured 30 minutes ergh. I think I wasted my 15 minutes whirling about in Tutuban night market because Casual is not my thing. I'm more skilled on street style/laid-back. Haha!

So yeah! this one happens. I look stunned explaining what I bought in the market. :D
From shoes, pants, shirt and cardigan I spent less than 900 pesos, thanks to my bidding talent I save some for our softdrink break. Kimboy (model) and I tried our best to came up with this look. I believe that fashion is comfort though I can tell its more kinda laid-back look than casual. Lol! 
Here are the rest of the models wearing what their stylist bought from Tutuban night market.

It was a night worthy kind of challenge, because I was able to budget the given money and also learn from my competitors too.
Besides the clothes, you'll be surprised because Tutuban Center is complete with jewelry, designer shirts, fashion finds, fragrances, shoes, novelty items, even electronic gadgets such as mobile phones, laptops, cameras or tablets.
Tutuban Center is located along C.M. Recto Avenue in Manila. Operating hours are from 9 am to 12 midnight, from Monday to Sunday.
