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.

Cleaning a Headbow

I have a problem. A few years back at a convention I bought a very simple BlackxWhite Angelic Pretty headbow and wore it a couple of times but that was about it. Now it only makes sense to sell it, and I plan on doing so, but it had gotten SO DINGY from dust and whatnot that the black faded a bit and the white lace is grey-ish. I...feel kind of ashamed.

Please tell me, how should I go about cleaning it? Thank you for the advice beforehand! m(_ _)m

Second hand shop + Wa Lolita indie brand

I have discovered a second hand shop and a lovely Wa Lolita brand and was just posting these links to the German community Dunkelsüß and thought they may be interesting for some of you :)

An indie brand that focuses on Wa Lolita (Japanese style) dresses and skirts made of Kimono fabric

This one is a second hand shop I discovered while searching for a dress (SS needed):

Maybe it could be added to the master list?

Lolita Sandals

I wanted to see if anyone know a good site to buy lolita looking sandals?  I'm looking for the platform type not heels.  I have red RHS sandals and one pair that is mostly black then one pair that is punk geisha like clog sandals but not all match my dresses or their getting worn out.  I noticed it's harding finding good sandals now days most are heels. My wardrobe is mostly black with color details so I am looking for black sandals. 

Well I have finally found a pair that is simple enough to go with anything I wear lolita and non lolita, they have a Vivienne Westwood style to them. They suprisingly are very affordable.
