A month ago, you know H&M released the new collection collaborating with Isabel Marant. As a fashion geek, a big fan of H&M and more than that, a fashion blogger, there was no way I wouldn't refuse to go get some pieces from the collection! I asked my best guy friend, Bryan as well as my big brother in America to come with me although I knew he had to work on that day! We decided to go to the H&M store in downtown. To be secure, we prepared to get there 4 2/1 hours before the store was open... YES it's freaking 3:30 AM!!!!!!! Crazy isn't it? :P When we got there, I saw several people lined up already and we got a fortune to be the 10th and 11th people in line. We spent hours and hours playing with our phones to kill times! (Thank you my new iPhone 5s <3 )
After passing 7:30 am, color-coded wrist bands that indicate when we could enter the store were handed out to us and the first ones could go shopping for MENS and KIDS previously before the WOMENS collection opened at 8:00 am. Yay for Bryan and I planned to get a cap from KIDS so we were really excited about the pre-shopping time!
At 7:45, the door was finally open, and everyone dashed in so enthusiastically but insanely!!!! He went downstairs and I went straight to the WOMENS collection. He got a lot of collection clothes that he was planning to buy as well as my cap!
The time was tick-tocking, and right after 8 am passed and we were let in, everyone was CRAZILY grabbing the pieces without hesitation even yanking off from the mannequins!!!! I should have done that! lol After 10 mins or so later, almost all clothes were gone (I was surprisingly shocked how fast everything was taken!) and I was super duper happy and lucky that I was able to pick up what I wanted to get except one garment, a chunky sweater. Here is the picture of what I got that was posted on my Insta (If you aren't following me already please do!)
Their collection was extremely lovely and wow, it was totally worth to wake up so early in the morning and wait for a crazy 5 hours! If I wasn't the 10th one in the line, I wouldn't have been able to get what I wanted!
So you probably already noticed that the outfit of today's post is almost styled up completely with the Isabel Marant collection. I seriously can't get enough of each piece and am really impressed with how versatile each item is! The bomber jacket is so eye-catchy, trendy and fun! It's great that you can wear it in two ways since it's reversible! On top of that, the prints are very contrasting such that you could make a totally different outfit out of ONE jacket! What a practical jacket! The lace top is my most favorite piece so far. The fit is just so perfect and it is meticulously well-made with the fabric. I embrace that it instantly creates the sexiness by showing off the skin through the lace and also helps to elevate elegance and glamour even more. I didn't have ANY black lace top so this is my first and a perfect top now added to my closet! Since the top looks vintage, I paired it with one of the belts that also looks vintage rather than the metal one.
When it came to choose the accessories, I wore ASOS jewel earrings (similar HERE) and purple jewel necklace to glam up around my face. Then, since I wanted to add a bit of color, I paired with a MANGO iPad case as a clutch. My new silver booties from Shoe Cult by Nasty Gal are so fab and nicely coordinated with the biker pants because of the silver details.
I hope you like/love how I styled my Isabel Marant x H&M collection and stay tuned for another look wearing the chunky knit and cap!
Happy Friday ♥
