Superb by Supersale Bazaar

My flight's leaving in less than 4 hours, but I still managed to squeeze in some quick retail therapy at the Superb by SuperSale bazaar. Hey! I wouldn't miss it for the world! (tee-hee)

Previously, the venue was held at the World Trade Center (March 2012). You can read my previous blog post HEREPrior to that,  the Rockwell Tent had always been the home of this chic and trendy bazaar. Call me a perfect attendee! :)

Last May 23-27 (Yes, you heard it right! Its 5days!!!) the venue was at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia.

On top of my list was (of course!) to drop by the SOAK SWIMWEAR booth. I was in heightened excitement to see previous bestsellers, on-stock again! (yey!) You just don't know how those babies sold-out like hot cakes as soon as being posted online.

It was pure delight to see the Pleated Maillot still available in my size! (S) and on a gorgeous blue and gray color, too! 

This is how beautiful it looks like when worn! (I love that it also doubles as a corset top when worn with a skirt )
 I was supposed to get my hands on it right-away, when suddenly.......

..this beautiful red and white Belize Ruffled High Waist caught my undivided attention! It was pure love!!! 

Soak swimwear posted this on their FB Page last March 13 with the caption "Some things are just worth the wait... Coming Soon!" Since then, it had garnered 187 likes and everybody was patiently waiting for it. Ooops! including me!

Unfortunately, all odds against me! It was only available in size L.

Good thing, size S was still available in other colors! Yey!

You're mine! :-) The color combination is soo enchantingly unique and I super love it!

My first haul of the day. Costs Php 1750 

I also came across these trendy items from the lovely and ever sooo friendly Ms.Tati of Bubbles. She has a gift of creativity! Ideas never runs out! Check-out her colorful floral mullet skirts...

...studded and spiked shorty shorts,

as well as colorful bracelets, necklaces and earrings!

 The booth was manned by pretty verniece. They were selling princess tutu skirts and palazzo pants in multiple prints.


After 2 hours, here are my haul! I wish I could have stayed longer, but I don't have enough time. And how I wished my Bffs were there. It's always fun to shop around with your girlfriends, right?


Were you able to attend the bazaar, too? I'd love to hear your purchases!

Promod Launch @ Bonifacio High Street

I was one of the 3 lucky winners of Promod x Scene Stealer Give-away. I had the chance to meet and shop with one of my favorite fashion bloggers, Lissa Kahayon.

Are you ready to experience Parisian shopping spree? 

Promod Philippines gives us yet another taste of French Chic Fashion as it opened its 10th branch last May 17, 2012.

This is the store facade at the Bonifacio High Street Central (a.k.a. BHS Central, soon to be known for its interactive water plaza) The extension of BHS, home of avant garde, trendy boutiques. It is located beside Ever New and just right across Jamba Juice. 

A top with an eye-catching poppy image in coral print paired with solid belted shorts leads the gorgeous Summer 2012 pieces on display.

Feel good fashion! You just have to agree that these medium mint and summer white pieces are simply refreshing! 

...here's more in focus!

Fluorescent Dreams is up next!
Look at those gorgeous vivid neon colors in cool breezy fabrics. (Check out that bold motif vest top in vibrant colors and sequins on the upper right, super like!)

You'll surely turn heads with the Summer Rock Collection. Eccentric rock looks, sequins, bold zips, flashy lemon, white & black colors!

Oh, Hello there cutesy Poster girl print in lemon!

Let's not forget these Naturally Glitzy Collection. These are elegant haute couture inspired clothes in copper, dark ecru, natural light hues.

I absolutely adore these Scarf Prints Collection!

....especially this Hippie chic tunic in turquoise

You want more? Summer 2012 in yellow

...and orange colors!

These are such dainty flower pieces!

I love these Neo-romantic shorts in soft guipure fabric! 

Shoes are also on display! This is such a pretty vibrant blue translucent sandals

Or perhaps, fancy flesh and khaki?

A myriad of jewelries and accessories

Printed fabric scarves

Here's more scenes from the launch. A mini fashion show was held earlier to showcase their current collection.
