Above, our best picks from ten more exciting cyber boutiques that you'll find in the next ten pages:
1. Glitterati by JL Ladrido and Nina Estacio

Why We Love Them: One word. FIERCE. Tutus, feathers, leather and lace–such spotlight grabbing attention can only be worn by the truly confident. Stylist Nina Estacio and JL Ladrido created clothes for women who epitomize the word chic: ladies who aren't afraid to wear high fashion during the day and who are known to paint the town red at night. We are particularly obsessed with their layered floral dresses. Tone it down by pairing with a blazer and oxfords during the day, then dress it up for night by changing into a pair of fab heels.

Why We Love Them: The brainchild of super fashion bloggers Rossana and Dani, this site offers one-of-a-kind pre-loved items that anyone would covet. They have everything from '80s dresses with shoulder pads to floral and lace blazers. Be sure to check often and reserve items as soon as possible. They only offer one piece per item and these clothes sell pretty fast. We once lucked out on a super cute floral blazer that only cost P450!
Contact Details: 0915-9011145, firstname.lastname@example.org
Price Range: P2999 to P3850
Payment and Shipping Details: BDO Bank Deposit, shipping through LBC
Why We Love Them: Heart stopping I-have-to-have-them shoes! They create the kind of footwear that you plan your outfits around on: Studded heels, fringe ankle boots, neon electric prints… this is super shoe heaven. What's extra cool about them is that the quality and the designs of their wares are comparable to imported brands, but at only half the cost. Now we can all be "Imeldific" without the guilt.

Price Range: P1000 to P2500

Why We Love Them: Arte. Exhibition clothing's dresses are slinky, sexy and glam. They have frocks for every conceivable occasion. From sweetheart cocktail dresses that takes you from cocktails to club openings, to one-shouldered numbers that look equally cool during lunch with friends and late night rock concerts.
6. Soeur Accessories
Contact Details: 0917-8111066, 0922-8280717
Products: Bracelets, Necklaces, Body Chains and Headbands
Price Range: P150 to P1000

Why We Love Them: Sisters Yanny, Yendy and Yessa were inspired by how young Hollywood incorporated fun accessories into their wardrobes. They decided to come up with their own take on quirky cool accessories.
Must-buys are the leather wrap-around bracelets, studded leather cuffs and body chains that can be worn three different ways. But our favorite is the feather headbands–they add a bit of pizzazz to every outfit and at just P550 each, you can afford to buy all three designs!
7. Tamera Online

Products: Make-up, Brushes, Skin and Face Care
Price Range: P400 to P2550
Payment and Shipping Details: BPI Bank Deposit, Paypal. Shipping is free within the Philippines.
Why We Love Them: Finally, a site which offers makeup brands that aren't readily available in Philippine stores. We no longer have to ask relatives or friends abroad to buy the stuff for us and wait until the balikbayan box arrives. Tameraonline.com has makeup brands we like such as Neutrogena, Physicians Formula, Benefit and Smashbox. Once you're done paying, expect your goodies to arrive within three days.
Contact Details: 0917-8942625/ 0922-6038087
Products: Make-up brushes, Kits and Vanity Cases
Price Range: P250 to P7000
Payment and Shipping Details: BPI and BDO Bank Deposit, G-Cash
Why We Love Them: Beautifully crafted make-up brushes that won't cost an arm and a leg. In fact, their complete brush kits cost about as much as one brush from a foreign makeup brand. The best part: this brand is also highly recommended by makeup artists and they deliver for free for orders within Metro Manila.
9. Nui Clothing
Contact Details: 0917-5313046
Products: Tops, Dresses, Swimwear and Cover-ups, Plus Size Fashion, Hip Men's tops
Price Range: Apparel P200 to P950, Swimwear P950 to P1800
Payment and Shipping Details: BPI and BDO Bank Deposit, G-cash, Paypal, Smart Money.
Why we love them: This is a one-stop shop for people who want beautiful and classic, well-made clothes. Nui Clothing also offers apparel for men and plus-sized women. Our pick is a chic black trench coat dress that would make a wonderful addition to any wardrobe. Equal parts classic and fashionable, this dress can take you from the boardroom to an intimate dinner date. Again, clothes sell out from this site pretty quickly so once you have your heart set on something, go for it. Tip: They launch their new collection on the first Friday of each month.
Contact Details: 0917-5214693, firstname.lastname@example.org
Products: Korean clothes, Nike and Adidas Key Chains

Why We Love Them: This site is great for those who want to add a couple of trendy pieces to their wardrobe each season without breaking the bank, with its wide array of jackets, tops, pants and dresses. We are obsessed with the oversized vests and little boy blazers–definitely a must-buy and at just P700 a pop you can afford to give your equally fashionable friend or sister her own. Believe us, she will forever love you for it.
