out & about - "a few mins to spare at H&M" edition


was out & about a few days ago in my COS blue checked shirt, acne jeans, paul smith sneakers and smelling of marc jacobs basil sorbet splash. had a few moments to spare so i popped into H&M and... happy times!


tried on this white shirt with pleated detailing on the front. i like it a lot, very dressy and smart. i can wear it anywhere really. the pleated front reminded me of the lanvin shirt i tried on previously.



animal prints seem to be a trend that doesn't go away so might as well just embrace it. this top is a mix of viscose and silk so it's really soft to the touch. but, since it's soft and clingy, it kinda accentuates my flaws, so i put this back.


before we look at the next shirt i tried on, let's look at how nonchalant yet graceful model eddie klint nick snider looked in that beautiful white shirt with red embroidery.


ok they ran out of medium and i tried a large, which just swallowed me whole. but it's a really nice shirt, i love the detailing, and it's only £29.99. i am going back next week to hunt for the medium. or even a small!


love the detailing. but saying that, it does look like a ladies' shirt doesn't it.



and so i left, feeling the chilly breeze outside i slung on my mustard colored cashmere jumper from COS.

happy days.

  8. Every since Gucci's Men Fall 09 show, I've been dying for some animal print! I love the first look...
    The red & white shirt reminds me of John Galliano's womnens show, but it was one of the best this season, so I think your on to something :P

  11. The leopard print reminds of Marc Jacobs of this season. I honestly don't think the white shirt with red embroidery looks good on you.. maybe a size of small :)
