Good Dress Up SuperSale Bazaar Holiday Series 2013. ELENABLOG

SuperSale Bazaar HOLIDAY Series 2013

Every December, without fail, we find ourselves entirely consumed with tracking down the perfect gifts for all the stylish ladies and dapper men in our lives, to the point of forgetting about our own holiday wish lists. Happily, that's all changing this year, as we've decided to make a series of Holiday bazaars just for our shoppers.

While there are many aspects of the holidays we love, nothing gets us in the festive spirit quite like Christmas parties and get-togethers! It's not only a time to celebrate with friends and loved ones, but also your chance to show off your most festive and stylish party attires. Much like the occasion itself, you want your outfit to be memorable and merry, which is precisely why we rounded up a handful of holiday fashion, beauty and gift essential back-to-back bazaars that are perfect for your upcoming events. So whether you're headed to an office fete, a gathering with family or friends, or hoping to meet that special someone under the mistletoe, we're happy to report that this season�s events is filled to the brim with fabulous options for everyone to buy.

Not only that but as we all know we Pinoys equate the festivities to gift giving even if we hate spending. We can�t resist the fact that we love to give our best friend even a little trinket. And yes every year we hit the mall with a hankering to buy something, but not the slightest idea as to what that may be. In these plan-free times, we tend to make impulse purchases. While the conspicuous consumption is momentarily satisfying, unfortunately these shopping sprees often result in that dreaded feeling of buyer's remorse. To avoid this problem, dear shoppers, the SuperSale Team has gathered only the best brands in one roof to satisfy your Christmas shopping needs. From thatparty dress to mom�s present, you can never go wrong in our selected 200 brands of up to 90% off. Yes, Christmas is the time where prices are all marked up but we are always making an exception wherein we promise you'll make smart buys in a snap! ?

Enjoy great discounts at the SuperSale Holiday Bazaar Series on November 22-24 and November 29-December 1, 2013 at the PICC Forum 1 & 2 and at World Trade Center Hall 4, respectively. Both events will be held from Friday-Sunday, 10am-9pm.

A variation of OPS!Love, the soft silicon heart pendent of Pois is designed with polka dots and creates a delicious optical effect where the colors merge delicately. The bracelet has a sweet strawberry scent, surprising you with a touch of happy breeze every time you wear it.

For the simple and romantic women, OPS!gives a twist to the must-have timeless jewelry. The OPS!Tennis bracelet is designed with 31 precious Swarovski crystals and comes in 20 color variations, making it a versatile and stylish fashion piece. The single body made of silicone symbolizes simplicity and democratizes the design of the historic bracelet, while the succession of the stones, intricately lined up one after the other, symbolizes eternal love. 

Young girls and the young girls at heart will be enchanted on a dreamlike state made of pastel tones and chessboards as OPS! brings the renowned novel Alice in Wonderland to their bracelets.

Good Dress Up Urban Rock Chic. ELENABLOG

Leather Jacket, FOREVER21. Top, ENSEMBLES. Origami skort, STYLESTUNNERMANILA. Bag, CHLOE EDIT by ZALORA. Earrings, LANDMARK. Bracelet, ENVY c/o ZALORA. Heels, MELISSA X JEAN PAUL GAULTIER. Infinity bracelet 

Last October 28, 2013 was the Mango Rock It Up event. The invite says we must dress in our Urban Rock Chic ensembles and this is what I came up with. I think Urban Rock Chic is something that you can wear everyday, but not too casual, not too formal and with a touch of rock and roll. This leather jacket that I got from Forever 21 screams "Rock and Roll!". I paired this edgy jacket with my white origami skort from StyleStunnerManila to balance the tough vibe of the upper part of this look. To break the monotony, I wore this neon Melissa X Jean Paul Gaultier heels and my Chloe Edit bag that I got from Zalora. Voila! My own version of Urban Rock Chic! What do you think?:)

Of course, wearing something white and sheer requires the perfect and the most reliable underwear. For this look, I wore my Nude Wacoal Bandeau Brassiere and my SORCI age by Wacoal Seamless Underwear! 

I wore my Nude Bandeau Brassiere inside this sheer sleeveless top. Can you see it? Of course not! That's why I love it! Wearing my nude bra prevents from shameless showing of underwear and sneaky perverts from peeking into my top hahaha! I love the bandeau style of this bra because it stays in place all the time. Of course you have to pick the perfect size as well to achieve that perfect fit!

My favorite is the seamless underwear! I think the seamless underwear is one of the most brilliant inventions in the field of intimates! haha Seriously! It's perfect for your bodycon skirts, dresses and shorts! It prevents weird looking marks on your back and makes you feel more comfortable. I'm wearing my seamless underwear in this outfit! I think it's perfect because I'm wearing a white fitted pair of skort! You know how it is when your wear whites, you can't avoid showing off your undergarments but with this seamless undies, you can be worry free!:)

Thank you Wacoal for giving us women the comfort that we deserve!
