Get Your Priorities Straight

Screen Shot 2013-11-13 at 5.37.39 PM

Despite the fact that things are hectic on my end with last minute launch prep, nothing can distract me from the unveiling of Isabel Marant for H&M tomorrow. Fingers crossed H&M’s site doesn’t crash (as has been the case in the past), because this time around I don’t have a spare few hours to persevere!

Have you got your wish list finalised?

We are very quickly nearing the release of the Isabel Marant for H&M collection and the accidental leaking of the lookbook, along with this first campaign photo, has me feeling giddy. I could easily purchase the entire collection, but these are my picks if I am to exercise any sort of control. Which is highly unlikely…

Available November 14th

This Dream Is Real

Screen Shot 2013-06-13 at 5.36.16 PM

As many of you know, I am a big, big fan of H&M collaborations – but this news is on another scale! If anyone were to ask me what my dream H&M collaboration would be, I can tell you without a moment of hesitation, I would say Isabel Marant. Having just been announced a few days ago, I am still processing that it is actually happening. Available on November 14th, I will be buying half the collection seeing as it will likely be the first and last time I will afford it again. Are you all as excited as I am?

Love x

I have my lovely London-based sister to thank for this latest post. With a finger firmly on the pulse, she excitedly told me about the launch of & Other StoriesH&M’s latest endeavour. With interesting silhouettes, clean lines, and a design edge that is rare among retailers of this size, I can see this becoming an exciting and different mainstay on the retail front. And the real triumph – the shoes!! What are your thoughts? x

P.s. Thanks to all of you for your lovely comments recently. It makes blogging so rewarding!

H&M deliver once more…

Margiela Mayhem

 

Who partook in the madness of Margeila for H&M yesterday? Finally released after much anticipation, it seems the collaboration launch was not without the standard website crash, the overnight queues, and the crazy that seems to come out with a limited edition designer collab at affordable prices (no judgement – I would lump myself into this category too).

I was bang on time, jumping on to their website and breezing through the initial stages of adding to my cart – I was almost disappointed at how easy it was appearing to be. I mean – why hasn’t the website crashed yet? Mmm… spoke too soon.

It all went wrong at the most important sealing of the deal – payment. After failing all my security questions (what the hell – that was my cat’s name!) my card was officially blocked and I was left to deal with the devastation. I then called my bank in a state of hurried panic – apparently shopping on H&M is not an urgent matter and the call centre was closed. What the hell? What kind of self-respecting bank has calling hours? And who doesn’t understand the urgency of this situation?

But then, a glimmer of hope… turns out the trusting folk at H&M will send out your parcel with a payment slip inside. Seems too good to be true – who sends you something and trusts you to pay later? But then, the website CRASHES. Great.

With some seriously persistent refreshing, I won out and this oversized pea coat will be mine! Had to sleep in this morning after my night of adrenaline-filled fun and dismay (what a rollercoaster) but I woke up feeling that little bit more satisfied that next winter I’ll be strutting around in my dream coat.
