Puntera flats from Suelas!
(winner gets to pick size and color!) 

SUELAS is an innovative footwear concept for the modern woman on the go. Designed with the challenges facing a contemporary urban lifestyle in mind, SUELAS shoes are ultra-comfortable, practical and yet stylish ballet flats that cater to every woman's footwear needs. To describe them as flexible would be an understatement since SUELAS shoes are exactly that: a novel design model that allows the footwear to be packed and stored in purses and handbags which would negate the need for separate and bulky paper bags and shoe bags. For the worldly travelers, SUELAS is perfect for the jet set life as it only takes up the teeniest of space in your luggage.

SUELAS shoes are truly the remedy to the fashionable woman's logistical and mobile problems. Tired after a long day at work and with social functions to attend to? Trying to commute home with the mad rush hour throng? Doing some last minute shopping in your pumps and stilettos? Looking forward to a fun evening of crazy dancing?

What do we love about Suelas?
We could easily flatten it, fold it up and pop it into our bags!!

I'm more than halfway done with the Mystery Hair Care brand's 14 day challenge! 
The secret shampoo and conditioner are almost used up and I've definitely
noticed some improvements! 

1. My waves are less tangled, less dry and surprisingly not as frizzy!

2. I love the scent! Ask my friend, Bianca, who definitely agrees that it smells a lot better than my last shampoo!!! It even combats the smell of smoke after a night out!

3. Hairbrushes and I don't get along. I could go for days without giving my hair a good brushing. A routine consists of a quick run through with a comb while it's wet and hat's it! Brushing it while it's dry makes my hair frizzier, poofier and it flattens out my waves. I hate brushing my hair! Believe me, my mom used to run after me with a hairbrush. Come to think of it, she still does! Now using this shampoo and conditioner has made my hair a lot easier to manage without a nightly brushing routine. Yay! I can air dry it, sleep on it and wake up to a bed of curls without looking like a train wreck!


My favorite accessory to compliment a hairstyle? A pretty hat! The one I'm wearing
is from Zara Men. I love looking through the men's section for great finds!

Just like you guys, I'm excited to find out what the brand is! Find out on August 1!

Super Sale Bazaar!

Jul 27, 2010

The SuperSale Team has been dipping its toes into Fall fashion while wallowing that Summer is over. Maybe it’s just us, but there’s something about Summer and we just cant let go of it. Although we are already bored with our Summer outfits we are still testing the waters of Fall fashion. This time of year, we want to explore the many ways to mix our Summer pieces as we prepare our hearts to fall for Fall. Fortunately the team once again rounded up top brands in the international and local scene for the 5th time and running. This July 30 -August 1, 2010, the SuperSale Bazaar will make it easier for shoppers to spruce up their wardrobe by debuts of upcoming brands and offering fashionistas marked down prices from our much loved labels.

From Friday to Sunday at 10am to 9pm, we are offering a revving sartorial magic to help quell those frenzied feelings of adjusting to this transitional phase. The Rockwell Tent will pay homage once again to our favorite local and imported designers and brands like Charina Sarte, Tan Gan, Michael Antonio, Moonshine, BeCe Manila, Glitterati, Paez Shoes, Paul&Joe, Cosmopolitan, Street Beat Boutique, Vida Jewelries, Cocomo Beachwear, Vanilla Label, Eight One, Anthology shoes, Sole Service, Trove, Bolsito Bags, Summersault, Iconique, Soule Phenomenon, Pearl&eve, Suelas and many more.

It's a well-known fact that the fashion world is peppered with the right brands and fashion coveters from trendsetter icons to stylish fashion followers. That’s why this event, we will house the biggest names in the industry under one tent. As Summer fades away, Fall is in full swing and that probably means updating your closet with jackets, lace and brocade dresses, and navy blues. We are here to give you the latest trends and best bargains of the current season to polish off that nearly perfect high-season look.

Currently loving this top from Willow Clothing at The Ramp Crossings. I first noticed

The Netbook

I've been using my Samsung netbook (seen in this post) for a while now and
I love how it's so quick and easy to use. Plus, it's really so easy to bring around on days
when I'll be away from my desktop.

If you remember from a couple of posts back, I mentioned that Samsung was giving away Netbooks.
Just wanted to congratulate the winners, Rogelio Torres Jr.  and Kimberly Claire Tan!
I'm sure you'll enjoy your netbooks as much as I do!

  My sister once told me that my waves add so much character to my entire outfit. I guess that's my own version of Hairography (as the kids of Glee like to call it!). Trust me, in pictures, my hair looks decent. Unfortunately in real life, it could get pretty unruly! Much to the horror of my mom,  there are days where it remotely resembles a bird's nest!
When I was younger, I've always wanted straight hair! It seems so much easier to maintain this tangled, frizzy mane of mine.I spent most of my teenage life, attempting to straighten 
it but it always failed. So I decided to do the opposite and love my waves instead!!!


I received a package in the mail (I LOVE snail mail!) that contained shampoo and conditioner by a Mystery Hair Care Brand that promises a transformation in 14 days! Since 2010 is about trying new things, I decided to give the challenge a shot :) I can't wait to see if this shampoo and conditioner can actually tame the frizz while maintaining the waves that I have grown to love.  

Want to join me in this 14 day challenge??? 
Request a free sample over at the Mystery Hair Care Brand site! Go for the challange and get a chance to win a Blackberry Bold, Ayala and the Spa gift certificates, Moleskins and an Enjoy Card!

Lazy Day Denim

Brother's sweatshirt, vintage denims, denim clogs from Hong Kong

After last night's storm, everything is back to normal! I hope everyone is okay

Too lazy to get dressed today because the strong winds were keeping me up. So I just grabbed the comfiest thing I could find and spent the day in the mall, where we charged all our laptops and phones in the store. 

Anyway, now I'm back home and thank God we have electricity and internet connection again.
I really have no idea how we all used to survive without the internet, I thought I was losing my mind last night! Hahahaha!

Caught In A Web

Cobweb top from Greenhills (worn asymmetrical), jersey dress from SM, 
bag from Bangkok, vintage scarf, Zara belt, Charles Jourdan heels

Finally wore this cobweb top I found in Greenhills a few months back.
It was one of those impulse buys which I ended up regretting. For my nephew's
baptism, I decided to wear it one sleeve done and I think I'm liking it all
over again. I love finding new 'old' clothes in the back of my closet!

Evolution of Style?

Jul 1, 2010



I just realized that Little Miss Dress Up is nearly two, so I decided to go through old posts all the way back to our first 'unofficial' blog. H, can you believe how long it's been?!?!?! (Look! My hair was still short. What was I thinking?!?!?) Looking back, I'd like to think that my style has evolved and has toned down just a little a bit, with me opting for more classic and chic pieces. Taking a cue from my fellow blogger, Hanna, my wardrobe has undergone a transformation = less color, more neutrals. It's a nice change don't you think?

Next thing on my to do list?
1.  Keep closet neat and organized (I'll try!)
2. Go classic
3. Invest in high quality items 
4. Quit spending on overly trendy fashion 
(now with Forever21 around this is going to be very VERY very hard to do!) 
5. Continue blogging!!!

Make a change for yourself too!
