When we started this little blog of ours a couple of years ago, I didn’t really think there would be more than five people reading it let alone have many cool opportunities like going on the radio and TV. I didn’t think we’d land a full page in a major newspaper, get featured in magazines and get asked to appear on TV such as CBC, CTV Ottawa Morning Live and Daytime Ottawa.
Speaking of Daytime Ottawa, we are back on air on Monday with TV Host Derick Fage for a very exciting segment on Fall Fashion, specifically fall to winter Stylish, Sexy and Sleek Coats and Jackets. Featuring great pieces from the celebrated Canadian company Freed and Freed (they make amazingly stylish and slender coats that flatters everyone), Le Chateau at the Rideau Centre and from the newly opened H&M store in Gatineau, I can’t wait to share with you coats and jackets made of beautiful fabrics, rich textures and flattering the cuts that accentuate any and every body figure.
PREPPING FOR TV: H&M GATINEAU SHOPPING FOR DAYTIME OTTAWA
I should know – we tried on many, many pieces in different sizes during our recent shopping trip at H&M Gatineau. Assisted by the very talented and knowledgeable H&M Visual Merchandiser Francesco and General Manager Briona, Mother, Regina
(Tinig Pinoy’s Radio Show Host and Hottest DJ) and I had a brilliant full afternoon of picking and trying clothes at the new H&M Store at the Les Promenades Mall in Gatineau. Having attended the very successful store opening last week, I was thrilled to go and actual browse and shop and try one fabulous piece after another. Having Francesco help us first hand, grabbing this skirt to pair with that top and the limited edition oversized cardigan, we’ve been introduced to a higher level of mixing and pairing different patterns, prints and textures.
MORE SHOPPING IN THE OUTAOUAIS
We had a rack full of clothes and I have to admit, going to the fitting room with an entire clothing rack is quite an experience. It was daunting and thrilling at the same time. It’s quite a confirmation that we are indeed huge fans of fashion. An indulgence that is now being made easier as this H&M Gatineau location is closer to home. For me, that totally gives a new meaning to #OUTAOUAISFUN to include shopping in the Outaouais region.
To say we had such a blast is an understatement. Though I have to keep things under wraps until the TV segment goes on air, here are some behind the scenes snap shots of the fun and pure pleasure of shopping for thousands of dollars worth of fashion pieces! Stay tuned at Rogers Channel 22 for Daytime Ottawa, the show goes live at 11:00 am and re-runs at 2:00 pm, 5:00 pm and 11:00 pm.
BIG, BIG THANK YOU to Francesco (who is sadly going back to his home store, H&M in Montreal as of press time, H&M Gatineau General Manager Briona and Zoi Agency’s Isabelle for facilitating our special visit at the store! We can’t wait to show you guys what we have chosen! Au revoir!
