Gold Class Movie Night

A quick post today to share what I wore to one of the many activities undertaken this long weekend. Aah, you've gotta love long weekends!
On Friday night, being Good Friday as there was not much to do, we decided to go for a late night movie. We had Gold Class vouchers that we'd been gifted and were waiting to use but tickets usually sell out pretty quickly for Friday nights. Luckily, this time we snapped them up just in time. We watched 'The Other Woman' - it wasn't great but who cares about the movie when you're in Gold Class at Crown Village Cinemas! 

Here's what I wore...

Black Waterfall Jacket: $139.95 (Dotti)
Ocre Silk Tank: *$5 (Dotti)
Animal Print scarf: *$9.95 (Sportsgirl)
Wet look Pants: *$19.95 (Glassons)
Black Soft Leather Ankle Boots: *$52.50 (Santini)

Outfit Total: $227.35
* = sale prices

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Good luck for the short week ahead and hooray for another long weekend next weekend! xx

My first buys from H&M Australia's first store

If you've read my previous post, you'll know that I was one of those people that lined up at an unearthly hour for the H&M Australia launch to ensure I was one of the first ones in. In this post, I shall share with you what was inside that shopping bag of mine. Without further ado, I present to you my first purchases from H&M Melbourne....

Clockwise- Necklace: $12.95, Black Shirt Dress: $59.95, Bracelet: $6.95, Jade Green Ballet Flats: $12.95, Black Tunic: $39.95, Pale Pink Off-Shoulder Top: $19.95, Black Ballet Flats: $12.95.

Below are photos off the tops & dresses I bought, to give you a clearer idea.
The pink top is the one Miranda Kerr wore in their launch campaign

The Black top/tunic on the far right of my photo is the tunic from the "Australia Exclusive Collection" as seen here
And the Black shirt dress on the top of my photo is a long, maxi dress with a button-up front from the waist up and from the waist down there's a long slit, so this will have to be worn with pants or a skirt. This photo does't do justice to it, but this is my favourite of all the things I bought. Will have to do an outfit post soon to show how this moves.

I don't know if they're still doing this, but on the day of the launch, they were giving away a free t-shirt at the exit when you showed your receipt. 

Successful shopping trip, I say. Can't wait to go back (once the frenzy dies down)!

The H&M Australia Opening

I had been waiting for this day for so so long! So, of course I was going to be one of the ones lining up outside H&M's first Australian store at a crazy hour. I always said I would line-up for H&M's opening, so I did. I keep my word. I will let the pictures speak for themselves and not say much else...

The queue as at 5.45am! Yes, I was one of those people.
Freebies to keep us occupied, alert and looking our best in the wee hours of the morning

Goodie Bag for the first few 100 customers of H&M Australia

Finally! The doors open!

So true! We definitely didn't sleep for the sake of fashion that night!
Yay! My first purchase from H&M Melbourne
