Get Your Priorities Straight

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?

You’re Invited To…

Despite being months off officially launching, I am hosting a ‘soft’ launch of sage x clare this weekend to give friends and family the opportunity to view and shop a selection of our inspiring products. I know many of you lovely followers live around the world, but to anyone in Melbourne this weekend, I’d love you to drop in! xxx

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.
