For spring and summer, we should all be extremely excited that Matthew Williamson's H&M line is available to us. If you remember, before I mentioned that I really wanted to go big on print for the summer. Well this line is the perfect way to do it. The line includes peacock themed prints, silk and leather, sequins, butterfly prints and ruffles. It's also such an inspiration for my shopping for this summer, I just love the big bold prints and colors that he uses. This is such an amazing collaboration; and this british designer's work hit select stores just a few days ago on April 23rd, and the second round hits everywhere May 14th. The second round will include more women's wear, swimwear and even menswear. Most of us will probably have to wait till May 14th because in New York it was insanity as girls literally snatched things off the rack! So mark your calendars and make a date with the nearest H&M!
Matthew Williamson + H&M really does = pure Love -xo, C.
Okay, now we can all admit that we would've given a limb to be at Coachella last weekend. I mean come on, Paul McCartney?! amongst so so many others, like my personal favorites the Black Keys, and newcomers like Crystal Castles - and that was only Friday!! For full line-up and more goodies you can check at their website.
What I'm really here to talk about is Jeremy Scott and Adidas' after party on Saturday night at the Frank Sinatra estate. Personally, I love checking in on party pictures from the Cobra Snake and such websites; I think I just dream of that sort of life, being stuck in suburbia makes a girl go crazy. And I just love what they wear! I love that at a party you can be so much crazier and at some points even tacky and it's completely acceptable because you're partying and everyone is having a good time. Take for example Peaches Geldof, as much as many hate, I really can't help but love her. These outfits.. It's almost glamorous in the trashiest way possible. And that's exactly what I like ;)
Dearest readers/ people of the world, I have to tell you. I've died and gone to heaven, or clothes heaven. Make that clothes/ accessories/ shoes heaven. Make that Topshop. As you all probably know already, Topshop finally opened in NYC!!! It opened on Thursday (April 2nd) and it's located at Broadway & Broome in Soho.
People who attended the opening of the store had to wait up to three hours to get in! And although that would have been an awesome experience, the launch party would have been even more amazing! Guests for the pre and after parties included Kate Moss (of course), Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Hudson, James Blunt, Rosario Dawson, Agyness Deyn, Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour, Jay-Z, Taylor Momsen, Zach Braff, Blake Lively, Emma Roberts and so so many more!
Yours truly got a chance to visit the store on Saturday, and let me tell you, after waiting in line for 40 minutes, I literally died when I walked in. Oh by the way did I forget to mention that there were employees handing out water bottles for the line and telling us about special offers?? Oh yes, that happened. And now for a plethora of pictures from this beautiful, beatiful, store. (Which by the way I could have taken so many more, but I was too busy freaking out!)
Yours truly freaking out, and the boyfriend enjoying Topman.
After experiencing all four, count 'em, FOUR floors! I made one purchase because I'm a poor little college student, but it was this little number:
with a tie-knot back, and that was handed over to me in this bag:
and I also got a copy of the Topshop catalog, which is equally as amazing but I think I've graced you with enough pictures for now! Basically, every single one of you needs to head on over to Soho and enjoy Topshop right now!
PS. Did I mention the 10% student discount with your student ID??!
