About a week ago I won the Best Australian Style competition held by H&M and Vogue Australia… the prize? H&M VIP Launch Party invites for their first store in Melbourne, a luxurious stay at The Olsen Hotel, goodies from Vogue, and a fancy schmancy car on a red carpet to take us to the event… Yes, this actually happened.
Sporting Zara’s neoprene leopard print dress and my favourite ASOS heels, my expectations were already sky high… but the Swedish still managed to exceed them. After walking the mini red carpet with my cousin, Dragana, we spent the next few hours mingling and shopping – even scoring an extra 20% off for the 1000 odd guests that were there for having the first exclusive sneak peek at H&M Australia.
Other than making about a hundred laps (and getting lost) around the three-storey store, stalking the staff carrying mini chocolate tarts, fangirling over fellow bloggers and how CHEAP everything is, we also found ourselves partying alongside Haim (!!!!!!!) (no biggie) who were playing a DJ set as a surprise!
A stunning little tartan skirt, mesh detail top and fluffy white jumper came home with me for $60 altogether, as well as a huge Aus Exclusive scarf courtesy of H&M – all of which you’ll be seeing in the coming weeks! So, if you haven’t already opened up a tab for the online store or made plans to visit it in person, I suggest you do so now…. 😉
