head-to-toe h&m.

Having bummed around in vans, American Apparell hoodies and alternating my bottom half between Levi cut-offs and Topshop Pippa skinnies, I decided to make an effort today. I have also had a hair cut since I last did one of these, yeah I have.

The title is a trick as its not one hundred per cent valid- I wore shoes from New Look but its a decent effort if I do say so myself. I've always found h&m hit and miss - some seasons they get right on it, others their collections just seem a bit.. off. Do you know what I'm saying? Or is that just me?

I take that all back for AW11. I walked in the other day and picked out an entire outfit in just twenty minutes, all for fifty squids. I could've bought many more things but I refrained.
Everything: h&m bar collar necklace: TOPSHOP

I have wanted this leather skirt since discovering it on fashiolista (great site, check it out) and this lace top? Well it echoes Miss Chung's Madewell number dont it?

Here are my favourite items from their AW11 press day preview to whet your appetites.

  9. Thank you for directing me to your Notion articles, I'm hooked! I was going to say hi to you but you appeared to be in a hurry and you were rushing along a bit! I love H&M but I find they can be a bit overcrowded with clothes!
