The Marni @ H&M collection launched on Thursday morning at 9am. Not a huge fan of Marni, I wasn’t planning to buy anything but I got sucked into the frenzy while confined to my bed and added a few things to my online basket. However, at the last minute, the pictures of the huge queues in H&M’s across the country put me off a bit as it’s a distinctive range and in a city as small as Belfast, you’re sure to meet someone wearing it.
But then, on Friday morning, I happened to be in Belfast and wandered into H&M on Royal Avenue and saw two rails of Marni stock left – plus some necklaces, scarves, sunglasses and shoes!
After some wine while watching Gok on the Late Late Show (I recommend catching up on the RTEPlayer), I decided to model the skirt. And ouch, it was sore trying on clothes with stitches in my neck but I’m a martyr to the cause…
Verdict? Love the skirt a lot but I haven’t got the right top to match in my wardrobe. Further shopping is required. But I am pleased by this result – any reason to shop is welcomed! Hints or tips anyone (other than a black polo neck!)?
