Monday Mode ☆ ONEANDAHALF & Brightspot Market

I bought this set of tops at ONEANDAHALF at Brightspot Market. I finally made it to Brightspot Market held at Gandaria City for the first time in my two-year stay in Jakarta!! My sweet husband and our three munchkins came with me. I could’ve stayed at the market all day looking around, but with my family being there, I knew that I had to be quick. It was for the best because I probably would have spent the money that I shouldn’t right now.

I really love the scarf like shirt! I have been wanting to have one and now I have it in my closet!

I found this combination of shirts in the basket with a “sale” sign in the photo below. It was one of the best bargains I found and I was very happy.


Where to find

Brightspot Market

What is Brightspot Market? If I can sum it up with my own words, it is like an Etsy market popped out of internet. Brightspot Market is an event where you can find selected independent fashion and product designers from Indonesia and products from some international brands. It is not only a place for a delicious shopping spree, but also a cool Indonesian cultural experience. To read more about Brightspot Market, click here. Also, my friend, Melany, who is a writer wrote a post about Brightspot Market held in May, 2011 on her blog, wanderlustandwonder.

Here are some snippets of my time at Brightspot Market.


♥ LOVE ♥

Great store for party planners.


I hope you enjoyed the photos. I did this today half asleep because I’m going on a vacation soon and I know that once I’m on the road, I won’t have the time to update my blog as often as I hope to, not to mention, I will be fighting jet-lag while nursing jet-lagged bébé. If I don’t post some of the photos now, I probably won’t and they will ‘collect dust’ in my iPhoto. You know how it goes.

    Very nice. Would you say the goods department in Gandaria is better than the one in Plaza Indonesia? I haven’t given myself the time to go visit either but they definitely look like something I would enjoy!

      The Brightspot Market is a fair like event that happens once or twice a year, so the 3-day market finished yesterday. The same group of people who started Brightspot Market created the Goods Department in Plaza Indonesia. It’s the same concept, but it’s there all the time. You do see the same items at Goods Department, but the Brightspot is much bigger in scale, thus there are more products from each brand at the market. I can totally picture you there and you will have a lot of fun browsing!

      Thanks! You’re in Estonia! How cool!!! Brightspot is really awesome. I don’t think there is one like that in Japan, either, or I just don’t know about it if there is one.

    Where’s your post-baby bump and fats? So envious!! Looking good still :)
    I’m not a fan of cupcakes but always attracted to their colours filled designs, too pretty to eat 😀

      Ah, you’re so sweet. I do have a post-baby bump! :) When I get pregnant though, I get morning sickness until the end, so I don’t have much appetite the whole pregnancy which helps me control my appetite. I am the same way about macaroons. I wouldn’t go for macaroons unless I’m taking photos of them.
