Got a last minute invitation from Cleo Magazine, thanks to Mbak Nitra who contacted me to get my invitation right on Thursday hahahaha couple hours before the scheduled date. However, I actually have full day class schedule on Thu so it's pretty hectic to me who 'take-off' from home at 6am and landed back about 11-ish at night. But I managed to handle it all thanks to my great boyfriend who always stand beside me to help me this and that.
I was not in the shopping mood last thursday plus I have some kind of commitment to due to Easter Day, so I didn't shop much and I was surprised I am able to do only IDR 70,000 expenses for Cotton Ink. It broke my commitment though but hey, who can't resist Cotton Ink *sorry dear Lord*.
The place was pretty crowd too, considered it was an invitation only event at first few hours, and getting worse when it was open for public later at night. *sigh* Sweat is all over my body, even though I already got one shoulder tank top. Pretty disappointing too coz some stuff are pretty much the same with the previous Brightspot Market and so does the booth decor. Or maybe it's just me who easily get bored? I don't know, it is totally my humble personal opinion.
Managed to meet tons of people there and busy with taking picture, I am thankful for such experience I got there, thank you Brightspot team. (being able to do little spending is sitting on the top of my thankful list :D)
Intan, Mala, and Me meet Lalitia there
with Winda, we got trapped in Mampang traffic jam for quite a while and managed to go from Depok to Pacific Place in one hour, geeezzz 'Enjoy Jakarta'!!!
in fully-packed Naima booth. In love with the shape but not with the patent material, it's too shiny.
btw, I'm wearing Nikicio signature dress in jersey black (worn as one shoulder outer), Zara strip tank, unbranded black tights and handbag, Retail Therapy three-straps grey flats, and random jewelries.
this is my two most-favorite booth decor. Geulis (upper) and The Balletcats (lower). Love Geulis' backdrop of patchwork and some of it are Batik pattern! also love The Balletcats giant signature icon, feel like I wanna buy that instead of their unique t-shirt :)
meet some blogger friends there, Tysha, Mirra, and Lalita. I've seen Diana Rikasari, Heidy Kalalo, and Gricia too but too bad I couldn't be able to be near enough to greet them. Ah, and I'm sorry T and M for the bad photo quality, looks like our spot isn't bright enough to make a good picture. Btw, love Tysha's gold top and Mirra's heels.
my one and only findings at this event, a shawl from Cotton Ink. I have to admit that when I saw the booklet they gave me on Brighstpot at home later, I regret that I didn't buy some of their new pieces. Their booth is waaay too crowded it's really hard for me to choose anything, it's me who need several time to decide what to buy, surely not your fault dear C n R :). Now all I can do is hoping there will be some left for me, which is pretty impossible hahaha. But this Rosette on Rosette classic tubular shawl could made me satisfied at the moment, love the color, love the material, and hate the reality that I can't get enough of it *no I'm kidding, love it actually*
