It has been three weeks since the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection hit the stores. I can tell by personal experience that it was madness! I still cannot believe I actually woke up at to get in line. It was my first-time camping and I had one of my best friends as a partner-in-shopping-crime keeping me company. But the early wake-up call paid off: we managed to get ourselves into the first group to enter the women's shop-in-shop! Luckily there was a coffee-car supplying us with free coffee and tea to keep us warm during the three hour wait and H&M handed out umbrellas to keep us dry.
At sharp the store finally opened and the first group of fashion-crazy women, myself included, and men rushed themselves to finally get their hands on the long anticipated collection. I only had my eyes on those much coveted fringe boots, so that was my first stop. Unfortunately they did not have the boots in my size, but I decided to take the pair I got anyway, just to try them on at home again. I also tried some dresses and oversized coats, but they just didn't fit me that well. After ten minutes of running like a mad woman the first group was told to leave the shop-in-shop and so I left only with a pair of boots one size too big. To console myself I browsed through the children's and men's racks and luckily found some items I really liked. After an hour I went home with a lot more than I had planned and an almost empty bank account...oops!
