Stuff I Wore - Isabel Marant Pour H&M

My latest Stuff I Wore post features a piece I picked up from the Isabel Marant Pour H&M collection. It's the black and white T-shirt - a piece that was on my wish list and which I was happy I got when I attended the pre-shop event. The t-shirt is simple but with a cool-looking black and white design. Love it!

I wore the t-shirt with a pleather jacket from Forever 21, slim fit cargo pants from H&M, red watch from Casio and grey long sleeves from the Gap. To add some colours into a somewhat dull outfit I wore a fun/bright kicks from Adidas.

What do you guys think? Don't forget to follow me on Instagram for more looks/outfits (search #dchiuoutfit)

One of a Kind Christmas Show & Sale 2013

I checked out the One of a Kind Christmas Show & Sale today. Believe it or not, it's actually my very first time (I know! How is that possible?!) However, I have attended the spring show before. Very glad to finally have the chance : )

A mini ice rink!
We got to the Direct Energy Centre at 10am, that was when it opened. Thinking to be there early and beat the crowd. How wrong was I - it was actually pretty busy already, there was a line up of people waiting to go in!! So great to see! People supporting locally handmade stuff!

There was so much to see, do and to eat/sample (the flavours area). I love to check out the Rising Stars area. I, somewhat feel close/relatable to the artisans there, since I too have my own creations: Hello! Stuff and would one day love to be a vendor. Check out my Hello! Stuff Etsy store here.

I really had a great time, and will try to go back before it ends. The show started Nov. 28 and will run until December 8. It's definitely worth checking out. A great place to do ALL your Christmas shopping! Take a look at some of my favourite stuff I saw at the show below. To those lucky winners who won tickets from my giveaway, don't forget to share your fav too! To everyone, make sure to share your experience of the show through social media, with #OOAKX13.
