After leisurely lunch with hubby and that orgasmic cup of creme brulee latte at Anomali Coffee Senopati, I was energized. I wanted to explore more of Jalan (street) Senopati! I made 2 wonderful discoveries that I wanna share with you. Check em out after the jump!
The first was Nenen Baby Store, which was perfect because I was looking for a baby shower gift for a friend. Nenen has so much cute stuff inside! I highly recommend you check it out if you have a baby.
I found the cutest lady bug strap that can be used by a toddler learning to walk as a harness so that mommy/daddy can give a little support when they fall. I think this would be great as well to prevent losing your child on excursions or during travel. What do you think?
The other store, a few feet a way from Nenen, was Glaze Boutique. I was able to buy a black caftan with white print which feels so luxurious and comfortable. It was a about 50 USD and though a bit pricey for the bargain hunter in me, I honestly think it was a good deal because this dress is so versatile and can be dressed up and dressed down depending on my shoes and accessories. (i.e. stilettos + clutch + diamonds = dress up OR wedge + my Fino bag + long necklace with beads = dress down) I can also use it as luxury resort wear over a bikini. Check out my beachy look below, which I wore because I totally missed the beach (Boracay! Cebu!) this summer. If I can’t come to the beach it can come to me! =P
They had so much cute stuff and some were on sale as well. The thing that prevented me from going crazy (aside from TD and our budget) is that I have a rather irregular figure (hour glass) and the clothes are made for more modest hips and busts. Sigh. I noticed that here in Jakarta my arse seems to be super-sized because I can’t seem to fit in many of the LARGE sizes. (Whuuuut?!?) While in Kamiseta Philippines (Katie Holms is so cute in their current campaign!) I am comfy in a medium and if I want something super low-waisted, I get a large.
Caftan NENEN Jakarta, starfish wedge shooes and long necklace CMG Manila, French gold plated brass earrings FELICITY in Shangri-la Mall Manila (FIRMA’s sister store) Note: I’m not sure if it is still open or it transferred location but I still visit FIRMA in Greenbelt 3 Manila)
If you wanna check out Nenen and Glaze Boutique, watch out for these signs on your LEFT side when you are in Jalan Senopati. Address and other available contact details below.
I went back to look for another caftan at Glaze Boutique. Unfortunately it has already closed down. =(
