4th of October 2012 @H&M - The moment we all waited for - Anna dello Russo's collection was finally going on sale. "What are we gonna buy? In which store can we find it? Should we go in the morning?" - I was asking my friend, Irina.
I'm not a morning person, so the thought of waking up especialy to go buy some bracelets made me feel a bit ridiculous. I love fashion, but I'm not a fashion victim (at least, I don't consider myself to be one) and I am definitely not the type that would catfight over an item in a store with a total stranger. For a couple of times, I thought there's no point in going there first thing in the morning, cause I'm gonna find them later on, or the next day. But somehow I got caught up in this "fashion shower", set the alarm clock and decided to go.
The shop was opening at 10 a.m., so 11.30 seemed pretty decent. I had my mind set on two bracelets - the crocodile and the small gold one - nothing extravagant and I was already imagining how I'm gonna wear them.
When I entered the mall I saw some girls carrying the AdR shopping bag and said to myself " Good thing you came so early, it's not so crowded yet." But once I entered the H&M shop, I realised it was not crowded because everyone else already shopped and left. I was so surprised to see the shelves almost empty. There were just a few bracelets, necklaces and sunglasses left after only 1h and a half since they opened. Some girl who worked there told me in 15 minutes a lot of items sold out. "Whoaaah!!! No more gold bracelets?" I asked her. ""No" she answered, "Just these". Of course, the next second I started searching through all the boxes, but there were nowhere to be found.
At least, I was lucky to find the crocodile bracelet. (You can say I had my share of the "fashion shower"). I never thought girls would get so crazy about this collection. Either way, H&M did a hell of a good job in promoting this! Next time, we'll all sleep in front of the shop!
