I’m sure you’ve heard the buzz by now. Jimmy Choo launches at H&M tomorrow morning. I spoke with the H&M ladies at their spring preview this week for their tips and the best advice? Go early!
Bring water, some snacks and a friend to hold your spot in line for bathroom breaks. Oh and of course bring your credit card!
Check out H&M’s site for info on how much you can buy (only one of each item) and how their wristband system will work. The rules are that the first 160 people in line will receive a bracelet which will have info on the designated area where they can shop. You only need the bracelets – for the women’s shoes, bags and accessories so that you’ll have a chance to take a look without being too rushed. And of course to try on the shoes. But if you’re looking for the clothing for men and women you can just go buck wild and then grab a bracelet so you can take a look at the accessories as well.
Also, you know what’s the best idea? Wear leggings and a tee! You can try on any outfit on top of it without having to strip down and if you wear slip on shoes or floppy boots you can try on shoes in a snap. (Who hasn’t had to show their underwear to a crowd at a sample sale with limited changerooms… Anyone? Okay maybe that’s just me.)
And remember, it’s only at select H&M’s so scope out the closest one to you with all of the pieces. Oh, and you can drag your hubby with you – there are clothes for men!
Here are the ones I want to buy if I decide to brave the lineups and mayhem.
First, the shoes. I LOVE the over the knee boots. But they aren’t cheap. And they may be hard to wear. Honestly, I may go for the zebra flats for their potential for everyday wear.
Can’t forget accessories. The bracelet is fab.
And of course this hot dress comes in an amazing grey suede or a black leather.
This is designer at its best – pretty, fashion forward and yet still affordable. The prices can go quite high so make sure you keep your receipt for returns!
