I have never been so sad and so excited at the same time. I was at the Mavs game last night (yay Mavs!) and a friend told me that H&M was already open in Northpark. I know, WTH?! How did I miss this?! My friend was at Northpark and saw people walking around with H&M shopping bags and discovered that a preview store had opened. That’s right, a-preview-store. I almost fell out of my chair! As I tried not to hyperventilate, I took to my phone to scour the H&M website for confirmation. Sadly, there was none to be found. However, another search turned up the Examiner, which reported that the preview store opened on Wednesday, December 8th and will close in April 2011 in preparation for the actual H&M megastore grand opening in October 2011. (Say that fast 5 times…) For a sneak peek preview, click here.
Here’s a pic of the jacket my friend was wearing that started the whole H&M conversation. She got hers in New York, but the Northpark location has them as well.
But the madness didn’t stop there. I was so distressed that I actually dreamt about H&M last night. Was it the quesadilla or peanut butter cookie I ate at the Mavs game? I don’t know, but I dreamt I showed up to shop and snap pics for the blog of course, looking trés cute, I might add. Then an impromptu mini-fashion show started in the middle of the store and as it finished I began taking pics of guests. Two guys walked past me, one of whom stopped and said, “I love what you’re wearing. It’s sooo….casual.” Say what? Casual? In the words of Murray in Clueless, “Are you b*#%&^$ blind or somethin’?!” I looked down and my belle ensemble had morphed into a purple t-shirt with yellow trim on the sleeves, silky purple wind pants with a yellow stripe down the leg, white socks and black sporty sandals. Aaaaaaahhhhhhhh! What a friggin’ nightmare! And to add insult to injury, aren’t purple and gold the colors of the Phoenix Suns? As if. Oh, it’s purple and orange, you say? Close enough. And still ugly.
