Good Shopping Karma: Marni for H&M

I rarely getting excited for designer collaborations with fast-fashion shops, however Marni for H&M really got my blood flowing. I just love Marni. It’s a great label for fashion lovers of all ages. It’s quirky, it’s fun, and it’s fabulous.

What I didn’t anticipate was everyone else loving Marni too. Which is why I didn’t plan a dramatic early morning shopping excursion to H&M the day the collection came out. I figured I would stroll in when the store opened and call it a day. Well clearly I was crazy because people started lining up the night before to capitalize on this sale. So I said ‘forget this’ and let my Marni for H&M dreams slip right out the window.

Then a shopping miracle happened.Necklace #1 – sadly the clasp broke after less than one wear … thanks, fast fashion!

A client needed an emergency styling session, which forced me to do some evening shopping. I hit some of my favorite spots; Nordstrom, Loehmann’s, Nordstrom Rack, and H&M. I went to H&M to search for non-Marni items but the shopping gods had other plans.

Necklace #2

I walk into the store and sitting on a display table are the three items I wanted from the collection; 2 necklaces and a pair of clip on earrings. I stood there staring at the pieces and then immediately snatched them up.

When I went to pay even the store clerks were astonished at my shopping luck. So amazing. I love me some shopping karma.
