Shorts & Tee From H&M

Featuring:

handm-blueshorts

Hey 🙂

I need some shorts for the summer. I have never been much of a fan of wearing shorts, other than abroad on holiday. I have a few pair of sports type of shorts, and shorts from football kits like my Spain kit. These are great, however this type of style is not so fashionable, and also there are no pockets! This is not good these days when you need your mobile phone 24/7.

I went to H&M and got a couple of pair…That store is so badly organised! I have mentioned it before, and it still it. Clothes all over the place, you have to really hunt around for things. In the end I settled for only 2 pair, basically because I got tired of looking around! :p

I saw this Cassette Tape t-shirt too, so I had to have it. You can never have too many t-shirts…Although I probably do actually have too many 😉

The blue shorts were £14.99, the black were on sale for £5 and the tee was £7.99

H&M Announce Guest Designer: Isabel Marant

Featuring:

handm-marant

H&M today announced it’s latest guest designer for a collaboration, and it will be Isabel Marant.

“H&M works with the best designers, and this invitation is an exciting honor,” Marant said in a release. “I aim at creating something real–something women want to wear in their everyday lives–with a certain carefree style. I think this is very Parisian: You dress up, but don’t pay too much attention to it, and you still look sexy. The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude.

The collection will be available online and selected H&M stores on Thursday 14th November 2013; Get ready to queue 😉

A Few Things From H&M Newcastle

Featuring:

Today I went to H&M, not online, the actual store! 😀 I do like H&M online, but I was out in Newcastle and the online store usually takes a week to deliver. Here is what I picked up:

I saw this shirt a few weeks ago, and liked the look of it. They do the same shirt in a few colours, and it was cheap, only £14.99. I’ll wear it for day to day things, work etc. They do them in a few colours, red, and a yellow type of blend.

A pair of Beckham bodywear boxer shorts. I already have a couple of pair from the old collection, it seems that these are exactly the same as those.

H&M Newcastle store layout is terrible!

I went to the actual store in Northumberland Street rather than online since I was in Newcastle and I think they layout was terrible! It took ages to find the boxers, which I thought would have been pride of place at the front with all of the Beckham Bodywear collection; Instead there was a little display of boxes next to the till; So I did not even see them until I was leaving!

At first I thought they had none, but then as I was going to go with just the shirt I noticed they had the boxers. They were advertised as a 3 pack for £19.99 and I assumed they’d be in 1 box, no! You have to actually pick up 3 boxes, otherwise they are £9.99 per pair.

It seems that they only had the boxers from the entire collection, I could not really find anything else. I was thinking that they would have had a large display of everything together, but they did not.

In general things are hard to find, they seem to have scattered things everywhere, t-shirts in various places, jumpers all over the place, it’s really hard to shop! 😀 I can’t speak for their other stores, but that one is not very shopping friendly.

I think i’ll stick to the website from now on 😉

Finally Got My Marni At H&M Things

Featuring:

Today I finally received my Marni at H&M items I ordered last Thursday. I thought they would have came yesterday, when I order off H&M it usually comes exactly a week later, but it came today instead, no big deal.

I got a t-shirt and pair of sunglasses, here they are:

 

 

Both items carry the “Made in China” label, which really takes some of the shine off this since it’s supposed to be a “designer” collection; I suppose you can’t expect too much at the prices they were charging. The t-shirt feels like good material, quite a thick tee, and is a cool design. 25% of the sale price goes to the Red Cross disaster relief efforts in Japan which is cool.

The sunglasses are OK, they come in a box and carry pouch. Only the fronts are painted black and the insides of the frame are a cream/green colour. They are a gradient lens, but look pretty nice quality; Not going to give Ray Ban a run for their money, but not bad for £20.

Both items were £19.99 each, and I am pretty happy with them.

Got My Versace Cruise For H&M Fashion Today

Featuring:

Today was the day when I got my Versace Cruise for H&M products! As I have already mentioned I completely forgot about this being released, I must of been asleep or something 😀 but luckily I was able to get lots of great things, probably most that I want out of the collection, apart from the dressing gown 🙁 I have seen a few images of it and it looks amazing! I would buy it if it comes available, it might, so watch this space 😉

Anyway for the things I DID get, which were a t-shirt, pair of jeans and a cardigan, here they are…

Really nice T Shirt, strechy cotton and feels nice, although I have not tried it yet, I fear it may be a bit translucent 😛

Silk blend cardigan, which is really nice and is in blue, one of the only colours I have not got in a cardigan, but I have now! :mrgreen: I love my cardigans so this will get plenty of wear.

The most impressive things I got from this collection were these jeans. At only £40 this are amazing quality! I really like the fit, they feel really good and are well designed, I love the thick chunky buttons which make them feel really tough but are in fact really soft.

 

How much was all of the above? Under £100! It is little wonder this stuff is usually sold out on the first day!

Wednesday 14th December 2011

Featuring:

Hey blog 🙂

So today I have had a busy old day. They said the other week that it was “the busiest online shopping day” but today was my busiest at work 😛 Lots of work, web work, emails etc. But only a week or so to go and that is that for the year 😀

Today I got some things from H&M, 3 pieces for under £50, how amaing, I love H&M 😉

A long sleeve black t shirt. This is made of strech cotton so it really nice and comfortable.

A red cardigan. This is really cool, knit cardigan with black buttons which add contrast.

 

Black V Neck knit. This is once again really nice, and made from Merino wool. It will look good with a shirt underneath 🙂

I have just updated the blog software and this is the first post, so I will have to make sure everything is working properly. I am also going to be adding a few things “behind the scenes” to the blog, which should make it faster and more optimised.

Today’s Purchases From H&M

Featuring:

I just love that place! :mrgreen: I have only been buying from H&M for a few months, and I have to say I love all the stuff they do, at really amazing prices! H&M is so fashionable and cheap, definitely high street fashion, but H&M is “cool” as opposed to others.

They have a sale on which I blogged about, I got one thing from the sale, and others at full price. I did want a jumper, but as soon as I tried to get it, it was gone! 😛 So I bought 3 things, total spend, £37!

Red cardigan. £7.49 this was on sale. I have a green one, I think that these are the same cardigans but now they are on sale. I love the green one, really good quality, the full price was still cheap at only £15.

Black long sleeve t shirt. Full price, but at £10 there is not much to complain about. I obviously can’t speak for the quality yet.

V Neck jumper in black, full price at £19.99. This is a fine knit jumper and it looks really nice, and I hope it is. It is available in a few colours, so when I get it if I am pleased I may order a few more.

Versace For H&M Launch – 17.11.11

Featuring:

Today was the day!

This morning at 9am the Versace and H&M collaboration went on sale! There were queues outside all the places selling it, and online the website crashed and was almost unusable most of the morning into the early afternoon. Donatella Versace popped into the London store this morning (pics below) and seemed rather happy 🙂

Did you go to an H&M today? If you did please send me your pics and I will put them up! (you get credit of course! 😉 )

I went on and tried to get a few things, and did! 😀 I will show which items I got when they come, which is supposed to be next week. I got confirmation emails for all items, so I hope that they will keep their promise and I will get my stuff.

The website had its problems. Apart from it being down, when you got in you could only buy 1 item…Not a quantity of 1 item per design/piece, just 1 item. So if you wanted more than 1 thing, a shirt and trousers for example, you had to check out and then order the 2nd item and check out again. Not too big of a deal usually, but when the site kept crashing it became very hard.

This obviously meant that people would get disappointed as items would sell out fast. I was on the site all morning, and from what I can tell, not all items were available to buy online. For example the Mens boxer shorts came in 2 colours and 4 sizes, and all were “sold out” within 20 minutes of the site going live; The same for the mens scarves; So I wonder if they were available at all online?

The stuff has already made it’s way onto eBay 🙁 Please do NOT buy the stuff from there. I have seen a few people already trying to sell an £80 jacket for £250, it’s a disgrace. The only way we can stop this from happening is not to buy from unofficial sellers on eBay…Unfortunately I guess there will be a few who do buy from them 🙁 If you do buy from eBay please do not pay more than market value.

Regent Street in London looked a little busy…

If you were online on the H&M website this morning then this is probably a familiar site….

Green Cardigan From H&M

Featuring:

Hey blog 🙂

Look at what finally came today!

I think I ordered this in May…Yes MAY! So its taken almost 2 months to come, and it was only a cheap cardigan. I forgot all about it really, they sent me a note in the post a few weeks back saying its been delayed AGAIN…That is the bad thing about H&M Online I have found…If they have what you want in stock their standard delivery is around 7 days, there is no express option; Also they don’t seem to have everything on their site in stock, and they give an expected date which doesn’t seem to mean much; This cardigan was supposed to come in stock in June and never did, and my lovely door mat was the same but did come earlier. They sell lots of cool stuff but be warned, it may be out of fashion by the time you get it 😉

I like this though, its nice quality, and I like the colour, its something different. The colour in the pic isn’t very true, You will get a better idea when I am wearing it on a pic 🙂
