Lately, I've found myself in no mood to go to malls. I mean, yes, shopping is one of the most delightful things women can ever do; but it seems to be a boring task nowadays because everything's too "commercial". It's rare to find something one-of-a-kind anymore. I've heard a lot of horror stories from my friends where they attended a party or an event only to have two more women wear the same dress, shoes, and even jewellery! 

Last week, I was able to attend the exclusive Row 101 media preview and my shopping spirit slowly found its way back to me! 

Thanks to Row 101, known to be Manila's finest well-curated bazaar, we can now have options to shop for items that are quite rare. Row 101 is doing their first summer pop-up store this coming April 16 to 17 at Whitespace Pasong Tamo from 11:00am to 8:00pm for us to snag unique and chic pieces for summer.

Here are some of my picks from the participating local brands from the Row 101 pop-up shop:

Flex Apparel for their uber chic sportswear that I might just hoard on April 16!

Cuesee Creations has beach-ready ethnic prints pouches and bags

Abby Jocson's cute purses in fun colors

Bronco Tear Gas for any danger that may arise in hot and humid crazy parties this summer
