#VersaceforHM Bun fight over, I am safe.


further to the previous blog post, i am happy to report no serious bodily harm done and no visible scratches as a result of this morning's versace for h&m madness. if you have been following me on twitter, you would have read the blow by blow account of what happened during the queues and the bun fights in store. while i calm myself down, here are some pics from today which sums it up quite nicely.

one of the items i bought from the versace for h&m collection was the above summery crocodile print t-shirt. i actually really like it, soft brushed cotton and at £14.99, i love!


after a fabulous dim sum lunch with chris and laurent, we wandered to selfridges and i came across this fornasetti plate of packed sardines, which i thought was highly amusing and resembled the t-shirt i bought above. is that a cosmic way of mocking my madness of a morning?


not content to being on a plate, the packed sardines continued their mockery in the form of a potted giant candle. nice.

more pics in a later blog post. so did you get anything from the versace for h&m collection today?

  8. Yeah the leather pants are still available (in the bigger sizes only, I think) in some of the stores. They were actually high on my wishlist - but when I tried on the size 30, while the fitted great around the bum and down to the knee, they were kind of cut straight from the knee down. Would've preferred a slimmer, tapered leg. I think leather trousers look best when they're like a second skin (like the Burberry Prorsum SS11 ones - oh how I wish I bought the pair I tried on back then!).

    The Versace H&M ones made from a great, soft leather though (like the biker jacket) so I would recommend if you don't mind the slightly more 'regular' fit.

    In the end I came away with the leather jacket, the bomber jacket (so happy about that one!), the alligator print skinny jeans, the fuschia shirt and fuschia lace-ups. Still holding out hope for the fuschia suit to go with those though! I loved the way Mark Ronson wore it all together, with no accessories, no fuss, a quiff and a slouch. I really didn't imagine the fuschia tailoring to be so popular - but it sold out in London within the hour. REALLY wish I could hop on a plane tonight so I could go to NY and get it at the US launch tomorrow!

  10. YAY! I managed to get the necklace!! and I'm so loving it!!!

    A veeery nice sales assistant kept the one in the window for me and called me yesterday to tell me that I could pass by to pick it up!!!!

    (I had left him my phone number after telling him how much I loved the necklace and was desperate to get it ;-))

    I passed by after work and got it + I couldn't resist getting the hot pink pants as they were still available :-D
