A new H&M store came to town

My new H&M dress

H M peplum dress
$32 -

Nine West peep toe pumps

This weekend, Saturday the 17th at noon, H&M opened its doors in the Austinite neighborhood called the Domain. The Swedish retailer was welcomed by the trendy and hip  Austinites who were roaming inside the store the whole weekend.

Gift cards and free T-Shirts were given for the first 500 customers in line and $10 off of $50 purchase were given to all other customers visiting the store this weekend.

I got there on a Saturday afternoon hoping that all the crazy shoppers got tired and left for their home, but at around 7PM the store was still full of people, the lines to fitting rooms were waaaaaaaaaaaaay long and the DJ mixing gave me more of a headache than a boost to go splurge. They were out of my size(s) or at least that's what I foolishly thought forgetting that they DO NOT practice flattering sizes. I waited in line forever and came out empty handed, but the quest was not over.

Sunday noon I took the bull by the horns and returned to the store. After 2 and a half hours I came out with:
  • The above pictured lovely peplum floral dress - $34.99
  • A stretch peplum top - $34.99
  • A turquoise leopard print cardigan - $10
  • A floral sleeveless silk top - $5
  • A coral and silver clutch - $17.95
  • A $10 discount
The store also carries an exclusive Maison Martin Margiela, re-edition from previous collections from the past 20 years and although I fancied some of the designs, they were a little bit too Haute Couture for my taste.
Now I'm waiting for the awesome deals that they're going to put out for Black Friday: $5 tops and blouses, $10 dresses and pants.
