H&M Spring buys

I am sure by now you would have seen supermodel Gisele Bundchen grazing magazines and ads in her H&M Spring 2011 ad campaign. When I first saw one of the posters on a billboard, I was a honestly a bit stunned (by her beauty and) to see Gisele Bundchen wearing H&M. My next thought was however, that the collection was going to be pretty expensive, assuming that the cost of getting a supermodel like her to model for H&M will be passed on to consumers like us.

However, I was pleasantly surprised when I strolled into H&M and saw that this skirt was only £9.99!! It's absolutely gorgeous, I tell you. It's actually assymetrical; slightly shorter in the front than in the back. The floral print is SO pretty! The best bit is that, the length is actually pretty okay for me! Well yes, I'd have to wear it with wedge shoes, but that's fine considering most of the maxi dresses/skirts at H&M make me look like I have a wedding gown train behind me (with heels on!).


Also, while in the store, I picked up this faux fur fox tail keychain which I've wanted forever. Again, it's one of those trends that started in Japan 2 years ago, but has only arrived in the UK.


Have you bought anything from the Bohemian Deluxe collection?

  2. I love H&M!! Taipei needs to get one...I'm sort of feeling H&M deprived.

    I've always wanted a foxtail!! I'm kind of (thinking of??) saving up for one of Luxirare's....I haven't found one that I really like anywhere else! >__<

    Anyways love your taste as usual. Good purchases!

  3. Oooo, do you have a problem with maxi dresses as well? >.< I can only admire them on others, because I'm too short.

    And I doubt the foxtail will hit my area/Canada anytime soon =.= but yours looks lovely and can't wait to see in with your outfit :D

  22. The photo of Gisele wearing the skirt is amazing! Seriously £9.99? That’s such a steal! The skirt is really gorgeous. I hope to see your outfit post on this spring blossoms!

    The last time I was at NYC H&M, I didn’t snag a lot of stuff. Maybe I should head to HK soon!

    I used to have the fox tail when I was very young. It’s those squeak squeak kind. I didn’t know it has emerge in the fashion scene years later.

  23. I picked up a few key pieces from H&M when I was in the UK - can't wait to wear it all out! I tried on those wedges, they were really comfortable.. the only thing stopping me from purchasing was the lack of time and the long queue :( ended up picking up another pair of wedges from H&M at a different time - they are love! Can't wait to see how you weaa that floral maxi skirt!
