UCU Shopping Spree at The Holt Renfrew Centre

Hello Darlings, Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for your week :) My best guess, is that this week will involve a few shopping trips. If so, I have a gift solution or two for the men in your life.

This past Sunday I went shopping with the lucky winner of UCU $1,000 MasterCard shopping spree at Toronto's iconic The Holt Renfrew Centre on Bloor Street. With a camera crew and several reporters in tow, we roamed the stores to find building block essentials for every man's wardrobe. Mission impossible? On the contrary, a man's wardrobe can be complete with just 10 steps.

1. Navy Suit such as the one from Giorgio Armani

2. Sunglasses as from Gucci

3. Medium-Width Tie as from Alexander McQueen

4. Overnight Bag as from Royce Leather

5. Cedar Shoe Trees as from Allen Edmonds

6. Lightweight Cashmere V-Neck Sweater as from Inhabit

7.White Oxford Button-Down Shirt as from Gucci

8. A Dark Pair of Jeans as from Y-3

9. White, Gray, and Back T-Shirts as from Y-3

10. Black Lace-Ups as from Prada

With a few pairs of jeans, a pair of Aldo shoes, and a Zara blazer; we filled in the missing pieces of our contest winner Andrew's wardrobe. Sometimes all that you need is a good plan to create a wardrobe that is easy and functional.

As for my outfit for a day of shopping, I was so excited  to wear my new pair of Manolo Blahnik booties. They were an early Christmas gift as well as my first pair of Manolo's. The booties accompanied another addition— an adorable Marc by Marc Jacobs fur vest. The outfit was comfortable and cozy enough f0r a full day of shopping.

I AM WEARING: Marc by Marc Jacobs Hayworth Fur Vest // Julie & Jack Cashmere Sweater // 7 for All Mankind Jeans // Manolo Blahnik Booties // YSL Arty Ring

It was such a fun day and I am so glad to have shared this experience :)

With Love...

Marta
