I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with H&M. I’ve bought some lovely clothes in there, but I also get frustrated and disheartened at times. I find myself going through the rails over and over to find my size, which is rarely in stock and even when it is, there’s no guarantee that it will fit me properly. The sizing can be completely out and I have been the victim many a time in the changing rooms where I’ve got stuck in a dress which has ended up being much smaller than what the label suggests. Thankfully the times that I’ve been a damsel in distress in a dress (say that three times quickly!), I’ve had a friend nearby to rescue me. Goodness knows what the staff in there must be thinking when I’m having a bit of a ‘moment’!
I hadn’t intended on shopping the H&M sale this time around for the above reasons, but I cut through the store as it makes a good short-cut into the main high-street. As I walked past the sale section, a rail of jackets caught me eye.
I have a few similar jackets in this peplum-style but I’ve worn them so much that they need replacing. I find that this style really suits my petite frame so I snapped it up in two colours. The black jacket was £15 and the purple £10. They were both origonally £24.99. Please excuse the creases!
Seeing as though I was already in the sale area, I thought it would be rude to stop right there… So I continued to rummage through the rails. I came across this cute grey top which was £3 reduced from £7.99 and this thin stripey jumper that I paid £7 for instead of £14.99. I thought these would both be great for layering – especially with pinafore dresses – my current clothing obsession!
Last up – possibly my best sale bargain to date. The picture just doesn’t do it justice so you’ll have to take my word for it! I picked up this camel colored, long (for me, at least!) wool-mix coat for £10 instead of £79.99. I couldn’t quite believe I had found such a bargain – I didn’t think it would really be that price when I took it to the till. I nervously waited for it to be scanned – feeling slightly tense- I was ready to be told it was a mistake. Luckily for me it scanned in okay and even the sales assistant seemed a bit surprised!
Since my visit to H&M everything in-store is now £10 or less, so it’s worth a visit if you’re passing by.
I was wondering, has anyone else had an amazing fashion mark-down? I’d love to know in the comments below!
