|Beverly Center Window. "The Necklace" I hoped for.|
|Lanvin For H&M. "The Aftermath"|
I''ll never line up behind a rope of any kind and wait to buy clothes no matter how coveted. Subsequently, I have been unlucky with every exclusive designer line for H&M. This reality hasn't stopped me from trying.
In the case of Alber Elbaz for Lanvin 'Hearts' H&M Collection, I had my eye and hopes on the red jeweled necklace. Arriving several hours after the debut, and obviously long after the hardcore fashionista's had fought for color coded wristbands to be 'the first'. I envisioned them leaving with multiple stacks of the designer items from dresses, shoes to handbags gleeful that they were leaving nothing for the stragglers. There was nothing to be found beyond my own wishful thinking, eternal optimism and empty shelves being dismantled by employees and few dresses, size 4. Oh well..
