so i finally got my shot at this collection today. met up with thesassypeach and fashionmefabulous at sbux and jumped in the queue on Michigan Ave. It was supposed to be a warm day and it was eventually but not at 8am. Chicago Tribune was on hand to document the event but I think everyone was surprised there was no long line (recession ??). I think they would have done better to bring it out at lunch hour, surely it would have created more buzz and more of a scene but luckily I am blessed/cursed to have plenty of time available due to not working. I met a fellow tpf'er and there was a sweet grandma on the line that waited in the cold to pick up the signature / campaign print dress for her grandaughter (sweet).
Things went quickly, I made straight away for the belts and picked up the blue and pink (score). They has tons of peacock cardigans and the shorter print dress, the peacock dress etc. I was not aware they would not have the sequin dress, the pink bubble dress or the navy suit, but I guess it is for the best or I would have spent too much. I forgot to ask thesassypeach and fashionmefabulous if they mind my posting their pics, after I ask I may update.
GO VISIT THEIR BLOGS, honestly they are soo much better than mine. these girls are going to be stars!
So, since h&m dissapointed on the dress side of things I decided to wander down to forever 21 to see what I could pair my lovely belts with to achieve a similar look, photos below, yes I am that cheap, and frankly h&m didn't leave me with much of a choice. I tried a dress, a romper and a harem jumper. Dressing room pics below. How did I do?
