Evangelista: A Haven for the Modern Fashionista

Welcome to Evangelista, a quaint neighborhood that hardly resembles the busy streets of modern Makati. Instead of skyscrapers and men in business suits the whole area is dotted with small stores that specialize in car parts. On first glance it may look like the ultimate haven for car mechanics and automotive specialists (whatever that job means).  
Yet several corners away, Hizon street blooms with a different promise. All it took was that single turn for me to realize that I was finally home! Vintage was everywhere! I now take this space to wholeheartedly thank the thrift store owners who allowed me to take picture after picture of their excellent goodies!
This bag is a Nina Ricci creation. The ribbon detail is just charming and it sells for just 1, 200php. Not bad!
This studded sling wonder from YSL is in excellent condition and is priced reasonably as well.
Here’s a unique piece from Christian Dior, a vintage party bag with lots of character!
Who doesn’t love Dior? This leather bag sells for 9-7k, depending on your bargaining skills!
Jill Stuart is famous for her mini dresses and this black lace number is a heart-stopper. For just 700php.
Louis Vuitton flats in orange and pink!
I may have forgotten the brand, but this pair is a beauty!
Vintage costume jewelry makes for a great collection.
These shoes are made for walking and shopping and partying…
Some more adorable bags…
Channel the Victorian in you with cameo pendants and a set of earrings. The one inside the box is a reproduction while the one outside is an original vintage piece.
No, you can never own enough bags!
This charming vintage comb comes with a mirror, the two items sell for 2, 500. A cheap price for authenticity.
It is a sweet irony that in modern Makati, there are age-old wonders waiting to be discovered.
These timeless treasures deserve a new home!
