H&M

H&M launched its Matthew Williamson collection for H&M today. The main inspiration for this collection is a retrospective of special pieces from his past collections.


i was at the H&M store on regent street yesterday, all i could wish for was the day to magically transform to today, so i could pick up as much of Williamson wonderfully eclectic print pieces. hes so good with colors and he gets away with piling up colors on his pieces.from eye catching purple to pink and turquoise(is this the new color of the season? cos i'm turning into a turquoise junkie), makes you feel like you're staring at a peacock.

unfortunately, my wish didn't come true, so i'm home today and imagining how crazy the stores would be now, with everyone shoving and dragging on the one off pieces.
hopefully when i stroll in tomorrow, I'll be able to lay my hands on a few good left over pieces or i might have to turn to ebay.



Posted by Picasathis is my favorite piece from the collection. it's worn by nicole hilton here. it cost just 44.99 quid,and then theres this silk jumpsuit that just kills me, for 149.99.
i've just got to get them *sigh*

you would think no one's shopping with the whole recession thingy. but the shops are still so full, its amazing, what happened to savings?
i've got to commend myself though. i've never had as much self control as i do now. Everyday I'm headed towards oxford street,promising myself i'm just going to rush in and out, then i'm walking the length and breath of new bond street and regent(i swear i dont know how i get there), but the good thing is i know i've got self control cos i dont take cabs that often. usually i shop till i'm weighed down with bags that i have to take a cab cos i cant bear to think about walking one more step or doing the underground. but now with my hurting feet i still manage to walk the underground cos i'm not holding as much bags:) yayyyy, i'm really a recovering shopaholic.
i must have grown up...or i must have been bitten by the recession bug.

  9. I agree with you, the shops are full. Maybe the prices of stuff are going down. I dont know for sure.

    I am glad about the progress you are making with the shopaholicism [is there a word like that?] I am sure you have more money in the savings account.
