So Iâ€™m back, unscathed, from Roberto Cavalli. No fights a la Viktor & Rolf (thankfully), but I didn’t cop anything! Why? Iâ€™m a bum and totally didnâ€™t wake up early enough to get a respectable place in line.
I power walked over to H&M at 51st and 5th this morning at 9:50 (read 10 minutes before H&M opened), and quel surprise!
…the line was dumb long. Perhaps the longest Iâ€™ve ever seen it?
I wanted to get a few quick pix of Fashion Bomb-esque readers before the floodgates opened, so I headed straight to the front wondering: How long have you been waiting?
Janet, Darvin, Tatiana, and Xander….
….said that theyâ€™d been waiting in line since 6:30. They came for the clothes, clothes, clothes…I absolutely love that Xander was still able pose while on the phone. And shout out to Tatiana who’s a fan of the Fashion Bomb!
Mike, John, and Keisha…
This fabulously stylish group…
….had been waiting 2 hours. Can you believe they initially didnâ€™t want to get snapped (citing head scarves)?? I thought they looked wonderful!
Last but not least, Fama, Alex, and Lindsay…
….held it down for a respectable hour.
With a line this long….
The queue moved pretty quickly, and once I got in….
….of course, total mayhem!
Unlike Viktor & Rolf and Madonna, the racks and tables were literally wiped clean….
Roberto Cavalli himself was in the house taking pictures and watching the girls go mad…
…was actually screaming for him like he was a rockstar.
Though I couldn’t find even a scrap of leopard print chiffon, not everyone suffered the same sad fate….
….some were very, very lucky.
Look out for those dresses on Ebay!
I must admit: these designer sales are exhausting. And almost insane. I think third time’s a charm for me…
So. Did yâ€™all go to H&M this morning? How was it round your neck of the woods?
* Seems it was just as crazy in London.
