My Experience With H&M x Marni

The collaboration between H&M x Marni was one of my pick for top collabs this year (Versace who?) and I was bound and determined to get a few pieces - forget the crowds, and let's just face it - crowds of people. 

When I arrived at the 34th Street & Broadway location, I was so thankful for the wristband that only allowed a certain group in. No long line, organized chaos, merchandise was reset for every group and you could see what was left. Besides the accessories (which were gone - no necklaces, bracelets, hats and barely any footwear left), there were plenty of clothes left, except for the jackets. I could even pick up two sizes of each style I wanted - that's a miracle within itself.

I loved the prints, the fit however was a different story - wishing the fit was for more "regular" sized women, than tall glamazons featured in the Sofia Coppola directed advertisements. I did walk away with a few things, the dual printed dress, tribal print pants and the black on black polka dot ensemble. Love it!

By the time I walked out of the fitting room, H&M had let the general crowd in to shop. The merchandise was eaten up like locusts and they even had associates pulling clothes off the floating hangers. Let's just say I'm super thankful for my little wristband.

If you went, did you walk away with what you wanted? Was it all that it was cracked up to be?
