LA CATRINA de LA Moda: ||the fitting room||

||the fitting room||


H&M Shopping 
Beverly Center



polk-a-dot tee longer in the back $12.99 (my own shorts)

green button down $9.99- size 6, needed a larger size for a loose and over sized fit

geometric black & white tank $15 ?

sheer black button down $ 19.99                                          maxi dress $ 24.99         
   
polk-a-dot "flowey" (i think I just made up my own word) shorts, sadly fit me too big :(

jersey sweat pants $12.99 again too big :(

leopard button down $24.99 super cute !

pink button down $9.99                                         moto-cross jeans $29.99 


I mentioned before that I wanted to go check out the H&M Festival Collection, and on Monday I was finally able to make my way over to the H&M at the Beverly Center to check it out.  I have to say that I was a little disappointed.  It might have been the fact that I waited so long after the release date of the collection to visit the store, but when I got  to the store there was only a tiny wall displaying the Fashion Against Aids Collection I had been longing to check out so desperately.  The two items I was excited to see in person and planning on getting for myself were no where to be found.  At the end the only item from the collection I ended up tyring on was the long print maxi.  Overall it was an"okay" trip.  It seemed like the items that I really liked were sold out in my size (green button down, polk-a-dot shorts, and jersey sweat pants)


what came
home with me....


I like to think that I did good, I brought home all of these three items for under $53.00!!
I really wanted the polk-a-dot shorts and the jersey sweatpants, and I am kinda regretting not getting the black sheer button down or the leopard button down, oh well! I hope I have better luck next time.

what H&M pieces are you most excited about right now?
have I mentioned before that I LOOOOOOVE H&M, and thank god that they don't have an online web shop, because if they did I would probably be sooooooo BROKE!
P.S.  I am wearing  the shorts from the deal hunting post, I loove em'

You should really rethink leaving that sheer black blouse behind! I don't want to give you fashion regrets -- I know how haunting those can be ;)

BUT you should consider getting it...

geri said...

Ivy said...

I'm dying over the polka dot tee, shorts, and sheer blouse.

I really missed out :( The first day it came out, I wanted to check it out so I drove to Glendale, when they told me only the Beverly Center carried it, I decided I was too lazy to go haha.

ari said...
