Inspiring Style: Lanvin for H&M

As some of you might know, Nov. 20 was the introduction of the long-awaited Lanvin for H&M collection. And as some of you might remember, for a very long time there has not been an H&M in my town. I actually had to go to London to step inside my first H&M.

Recently, the Swedish minds behind H&M decided to open a brand-spanking, two-level store about an hour from where I live. Yay! So my friend and I decided to make the long trek, especially with the new Lanvin collection. She is, by the way, a huge fan of all things Lanvin.
What I wore

(F21 shoes and harem pants, Charlotte Russe lace top, H&M blazer...of course)

My friend Jessica -- What She Wore

We knew the mall opened at 10 AM so we timed our drive just right to get there right on schedule. Much to our dismay, we realized as we got closer to H&M that although the mall opened at 10, H&M had opened at 8 specifically for Lanvin. Apparently, hordes of girls had arrived, waited in a line, and received bracelets with 20-minute time limits to shop. Basically: you can buy whatever you can carry in a 20-minute interval.

This is what the walls looked like by the time we got there.

And we thought we were early!


Anyway, here is what I bought:

This heart print H&M top
This H&M black ruffle dress
This Lanvin coat
And what Jessica bought:

Lanvin clutch, enamel earrings, tote, blazer, top and shoulder dress
But even when I go shopping I am still thinking of you lovely muses! So I decided that I will add this great Lanvin tote to my Holiday Giveaway!

Be sure to enter if you haven't already!

Did you make it to Lanvin?

Ohh lucky! The Lavin collection looks amazing! It totally slipped my mind and I didn't have a chance to go to the closest H&M here. Which means it's probably sold out already. Ohs well, I'll just live vicariously through all you bloggers who did! :)
