Nothing Good Can Come Of It
I read yesterday that JCrew may be coming to town, perhaps as early as next year. Why is it that I think that JCrew coming to town may actually stop me from shopping JCrew. Part of the attraction of JCrew (for me at least) is that I can only purchase it online. Having easy access to JCrew may render it, dare I say it, less attractive. No sense spending too much time thinking about this. Let's just see what happens.
Lanvin for H&M. Other than when I was at university and had to line up to sign up for courses (I don't think that anyone lines up for courses anymore), I don't think that I have ever lined up to get something. I walked by the line-up at one of the H&Ms downtown and, for a nanosecond, thought about lining up to check out the merchandise, but no sooner had I thought about lining up than I knew that I would not line up. I guess I can't line up for an unknown.
So instead of lining up to see if there might be something from the Lanvin for H&M collection that I might want, I went to some of my other favourite stores, where I hit paydirt.
I am wearing an old dress by Zara with an old silver pin, an old cardigan by Jacob, old leggings and old knit shorts by Lululemon, an old coat from H&M and old gloves by Nine West. My socks are old, from an off-price store, and my boots are by Fluevog.
