Marni for H&M – Press Night & My Haul

What a night!

Blogger Christine trying on the collection

Free drinks poured from ice sculptures

Drummers greeting shoppers at the entrance

Power shopping in style

Looking chuffed with her scores

Empty shelves.  These were full 10 minutes before

Celebrity stylist June Ambrose going through her pile

The shop entrance was lined with free drinks

Try ons were dotted throughout the shop floor

My Finds:
The platform leather & wood sandals. I grabbed the very last box

The collar in black (and white)

This long line leather jacket (NOT part of Marni collaboration).  A contemporary take on a motor jacket with soft matte leather. I can only imagine how it will be a year from now

If you followed me on twitter last night you know about my trip to the press only shopping event for Marni for H&M.

I was about 20th in the queue outside and at 7pm everyone started rushing in and grabbing.  God help me.  Once inside I stood completely still for about 1 minute while watching women grabbing handfuls of the collection. I was in the calm of the storm.  Time to snap out of it.

I went for the collars I first fell in love with from this post.  Also got the last pair of leather and wood sandals. Jenn and I found a quiet moment to try on a modern motor leather jacket. We both spotted it by ourselves and loved it.  That night was 25% off for non Marni items.

ps. Paula your gift is winging it’s way to you very soon ; )

pps. For those asking about this H&M white leather vest, H&M told me that it hits shops around end of March/early April.

    I love those shoes, and they look very comfortable. Are they as comfortable as they look? It is not often that I look at a shoe lately and go oh that looks like foot heaven but something about the structure it just looks like a very comfy shoe!!
