ALEXANDER WANG X H&M COLLECTION and HAUL


Thursday 6th of November is the launch day of the much anticipated Alexander Wang Collection at H&M!!! Angelina Rose and I went to the Regent Street Store as the queue was a lot shorter than the oxford street store and we imagined the stock would be very similar. We had to queue for about half an hour to browse ladies wear but the menswear section was just kinda a you show up and grab whatever you can! It was the craziest and most exciting shopping experience that I've had so far.. (bearing in mind that I've never been boxing day shopping before)

I picked up a few things as I thought I've come to far not to do so! The first thing that caught my eye was this crop top, I thought it was so cute and I could wear it over and over again. Maybe even start going to the gym with it? Maybe...




I was a bit swept up in the hype when I picked this up this next item, the Singlet. It looked a lot more eye-catching in the store. I thought I could wear this over a bikini or just wear it as a casual tee, as it is after all 'a casual tee' but got to say I'm not entirely fond of the look or the material as it creases a lot, you can hardly see the details so I'm thinking of returning it as I don't think I would wear this much, or at all for that matter.

I don't know why I picked the Alexander Wang Trophy up but I did! As soon as I opened the box I thought "what a cute shot glass" and I thought I'd have that, but then I realised I should have been looking for the sunglasses instead! I just got so caught up in the cute moment that I lost my senses for a good few minutes!

Last but not least, I got the Scuba Top. I think this was actually one of the first things that I was drawn to but trying it on was a different story. I'm not saying that I don't like it, it's just it does not suit me or shall I say my style as I'm the kind of girl that prefers a baggy jumper and colours over a black slightly corset like one.

One last thing before I go! This Sports bra! I saw this in the regent street store but they didn't have my size left which is a HUGE shame as it is the only thing that I am in LOOOOOVEE with, very gutted about not having this item because, well because isn't it just the coolest thing ever?! I think it is.



Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed the DAY!
Did you pick up anything from this collection? What are your thoughts?
