So I was walking down Oxford Street super early on Wednesday morning, (no, not a walk of shame, actually) and I saw the most amazing thing in the window at H&M.
Gone were the slightly too green items from the Conscious Collection and all the leafy pictures of Vanessa Paradis looking all Titania Queen of the fairies in fashion’s most fabulous forest….
And in their place, something much more fashion.
I’m all for “more sustainable fashion” using better cottons and being all conscious and stuff but throw me a ball gown any day.
And that’s what the window did.
Omg an H&M ball gown!
And holy consciousness, doll lovers. It’s part of the Conscious Collection!
The second tranche of the 2013 Conscious Collection is all fancy. Remember when we all read that Michelle Williams (not #poormichelle) was wearing H&M to the BAFTAs last year? And somebody else was wearing something else by H&M at this year’s Oscars? And we laughed because we thought it was a stylist playing tricks on the journalists. Well it was all true. H&M have made some really dazzling pieces. Showstoppers!
All totes gorgeous, right?
And there’s stuff for the boys too.
So obviously I just started banging on the glass until they let me in.
But when I got inside, what did I see?
Which is all well and good because Barbie loved that little sparkly military number…
But where was the pretty floaty number?
So I tried menswear. Maybe they hid it.
Nope. Great jacket though. And a bargain, probably because it’s made of moss or something. Not my colour, alas,but perfect for Mr F. I decided to make him buy it at the weekend. (Which is now.
And he did.)
But nothing red carpet worthy.
So I went outside and looked at these beautiful pieces in the window. And then I saw the sign. “Available in this store…. From Thursday.” Which was a right bloomin’ swizz as my mum would say.
So I came home. Well actually I went to my meeting-which was why I was in town so early- then I went to Primarni and bought some awesome tops I will share with you later but then I went home.
And got the look book for the collection.
And fell in love with this…
Which I would never wear.
But I know a doll who would….
But then I actually fell in love with this….
Combien de chic?
This was in the window.
I’ve seen it.
It looks expensive.
I would get married in it.
But I might have to buy it. And wear it to someone else’s wedding. Which is handy as I do have three coming up. Three! But is it too much like my Lanvin?
Obviously totally different and absolutely justifiable!
What is this?
This, my friends is on the hit list.
This is coming to a wedding near you.
Well okay I need to try it on but I can’t see why it wouldn’t look fanf*ckingtastic. Can you?
I will obviously let you know how I get on.
