That H&M's online store does not allow international delivery is a blessing in disguise. For my wallet, anyway. But not my wardrobe. And not my sanity, either.
It's a crime that high quality, up to the minute fashion at such affordable prices is available elsewhere in the world but not Down Under. After 8 months back in Oz, I'm still a subscriber to H&M's fashion update e-mails and I just can't bring myself to click that unsubscribe button. The newsletters come complete with discounts and special offers, such as 25% off. The last two have me lusting after a few basic items that would make great staple pieces and translate easily into a number of outfits and occassions.
Like this jumper, for one:
Or this handbag:
I love coats. Somewhere along the way from teenager to adult, I developed poor circulation and zero tolerance for the cold, so I've been wearing my thick woollen coat since about May. I get a lot of use out of them, so it's good to have a few. One of the main things I love about H&M is that they provide a range of pieces, like these coats, suitable for any budget, meaning you can afford to update your staples every year, if you so desire.
So. Show H&M some lovin' and let them know they're wanted in the Land of Oz!! Do it for your wardrobe's sake, if not your own. Or even my sake.
