Alexander Wang x H&M top, H&M jeans, Zara faux leather jacket, Parfois bag, New Look boots, Peacocks ring
Last Thursday I was one of those who exchanged sleep for a spot in line for the Alexander Wang x H&M collections opening. Well, ok, one of the main reasons why I went was because I won the limited edition backpack with an attached chair. Also I was a bit curious to see what happen in these kind of things as it was my first time attending this kind of event.
The whole thing, for me, was surreal. I've never seen so many people going crazy over clothes, grabbing their favorites and then going either straight to the cash register or to the changing rooms to try on the pieces they've snatched. The whole collection was sold out by mid day. I'm really happy I got at least something from the whole collection as now the only place where you can find it is on ebay, sold in astronomical prices.
I had set my eyes on this black top ever since the ad campaign came out. So I knew I wanted to try it on and see how it would look on me. Once I did - there was no way I could let it go (even after seeing the price tag and having a little heart attack in the changing room).
So happy (very early) birthday to me!
Did you manage to snatch a piece?
