Lanvin Love in San Francisco.

So guys, today was a very interesting day. It started at 5 o'clock in the morning. We all got ready to go to SF to get pieces from the Lanvin for H&M collection. Long story short* (because WOW was the line long, seriously it circled a whole block!), we got nothing.

However, there's an upside! We got amazing photos of the chaos and video footage, not to mention a little case of the green monster**, sore feet, and a lifetime of unforgettable memories! 

*Let's make it a little longer - we didn't go the night before because it was raining and freezing, we assumed people would just come around 3 or 4 in the morning. But, we underestimated the passion. One of the guards said people had been waiting since 3 pm  the day before! We'll know better next time!


**(Unlike some privileged people, we were not able to get any of the Lanvin pieces.)

Enjoy!

   Look at all the beautiful pieces! We stood behind a white gate unable to enter the amazingness. 
                                                                The chosen ones!
    The blow horn of misery! (They had a time limit of course)
 The amazing H&M staff getting more inventory for the crazed shoppers!
 Lucky girl! She had so many pieces that we wanted! 
Some girl left her bag on the ground, what a shame, disgracing the pieces like that!
 So do we!
We came back at 1:30 because that's when the 'night owls' could enter, but this is what we came to.
Silver lining, there were a few dresses left, so we were able to at least the touch one of the pieces!

Guess who says, "Oh look at the yellow, the yellow! The yellow!"

  2. Wow, crazy. Even though it looks chaotic..it still looks amazing. I love the picture of the empty room. It is like Wal-Mart on Black Friday. Except way more fabulous and stylish.
