Obviously, I celebrated this by doing what I do best. Shopping!
But for a good reason this time...remember my post a few weeks back about Marni collaborating with H&M?
Well today was the day! One of my favourite designers producing a collection for a high street store. I simply had to be there.
So, with my very strong coffee and my stylish partner in crime, Sophie, I hopped on the 8.30am train and made my way to Oxford Street.
It was as busy as I expected. Though not as bad as previous years because of the new wristband and appointment system. Everyone who queued up (some from as early as 9pm last night!) was given a wristband which allowed them a twenty minute trolley dash around the Marni collection.
Still, I didn't let this bother me too much and after the initial whistle blow and a frantic shop assistant telling us to 'GO GO GO' I had calmed myself down and I was ready to shop!
I did quite well in my little spree. I got the blue spotted suit I'd been after since seeing it here and I got a few other bits and pieces, but it wasn't always easy finding things in the right size given the time frame allowed. Hopefully I can share all my new purchases with you soon once I've recovered
Did anybody else make it to the launch? What did you buy?
