It’s taken approx 14 years of practice but I think I’ve finally cracked the mystery of successful clothes shopping. After a lovely trip to the spa with my new roomie, what better than an impromptu shopping trip? I usually avoid the high street like the plague (I know, shops need support or they’ll disappear blah, blah, blah). We went into H&M after seeing a gorgeous jumpsuit in a magazine while waiting in the relaxation room. Didn’t think about the fact it was an old feature and it had clearly sold out by now. Never mind. In our completely relaxed haze, we pretty much bought everything we touched without stopping to really see what we had or how much it cost. What can I say, we know how to live dangerously!
I am so impressed with our communal haul. We accidentally managed to collectively buy the perfect capsule wardrobe. Pretty much everything fits us both perfectly and pretty much everything looks like it’ll go together to make the best outfits.
This has to be the way forward. Communal wardrobes. Twice the amount of clothes without having to fork out for everything. It’s also a refreshing change having options that I wouldn’t necessarily pick myself. We’ve got fairly similar styles but do usually pick out pieces that the other wouldn’t. Perfect harmony if you ask me!
Either H&M have an amazing shop layout with subliminal shopping hints, or we both have incredible natural style and ability to pick out outfits without having to think about it. I’m going to be unrealistically optimistic and choose to believe the latter. In all our circuits around the shop, there’s a very good chance we’ve just shopped a ready made collection, but the whole experience was stress free and felt a little bit cheeky. Perfect shopping trip for me, might give real life shopping a go a bit more often (I’m sure my bank account will hate me for that!)
I am very excited to get properly into styling all these new pieces and transforming into the grown up goddess I’m picturing in my head right now.
