Lolita stores in Manila, Philippines

Calling the advice of lolitas located in Manila, Philippines!

I am going to be traveling to Manila in April 2013. I have been trying to find an active forum for Manila lolitas, but I can't seem to find any. Could anyone link me to one?

Also, are there any physical stores in or near Manila that sell lolita-ish items? I know there are a number of shops in the malls that sell Sanrio and general cute things, but I wanted to know if there's a particular store I should be on the lookout for. I was hoping to find a list online, but maybe I'm just not looking in the right places.

As far as I know, there aren't any physical stores here that sell lolita items (I mean, there are some that sell random cute loliable trinkets, but none that are lolita-specific), most of the lolita or lolita-inspired stores here are online/based on facebook.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

It's okay, thank you for your response anyway!

Most lolita "stores" in the philippines are on facebook or multiply.

But I think there aren't any physical stores in Manila, more like loliable stuff like accessoires, etc.

I'll have an eye out for you, I'm going home in March. :)

It isn't Lolita, but there are shops that sell cute items/accessories and vintage-ish objects at Cubao Expo. There's also a small shop at Bonifacio High Street (I forgot the name) that is known to sell nicely decorated sweets. I've heard that some lolitas go there to eat/hang out and have photoshoots because of the shop's interior. :)

You might also want to check out what cons are happening in the area during your visit. Most shops that sell Lolita-related items don't have their own stores, so they just randomly appear at events and rent a booth/table there.

Hmm, I will definitely have to see if I can find this cute shop with the nice sweets!

There is a con happening the week before I arrive in Manila ;_;

I got the name! It's Cupcakes by Sonja at Serendra, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. I've been in the area, but I haven't been inside the shop, so I can't provide a review. ^^

There's also Stacy's at Capitol Hills, Quezon City, if you're after the cute interior.
