Yesterday was the release of Sonia Rykiel pour H&M and I am a huge fan! Knits and stripes are Rykiel specialties, and I loved Sonia Rykiel pour H&M lingerie and was looking forward to picking up a few dresses. The designs are beautiful and bright.
To my surprise and disappointment, almost the entire collection was sold out immediately at the Yorkdale store! But what was left did look as beautiful as seen on the pictures. I grabbed a big chunk of the collection and headed to the changing room. With every try, I got more mop-y and disappointed....
... The clothes did not fit properly at all. The dresses were too long and the sizing was too large (xs fit like a m). On the hangers it all looked stunning but on me it was just completely off. Also some of the fabrics were not suitable for the clothes, making the designs look awkward. The shoes were cute but too chunky for my feet, and I also thought that paying $70 for a pair that is made of pleather is ridiculous. I was pretty disappointed, as I wanted to get so many things.
I did not walk out empty handed, though. I picked up a sweater, a skirt, a tote bag, a beret and a pair of tights. Overall the collection fabulous and very Sonia, however the fit was just off… I am not sure if it was my body type but things just hung on me. I was sad for not being able to get a dress.
While shopping yesterday, I also ran into one of you lovely readers, which was really awesome :) Thank you for saying hello!!! I am pretty shy in person but it was truly a pleasure to meet and chat. It is such a pleasure and privilege to meet my fellow bloggers and readers!!!
I am wearing:
Alexander Wang for Gap trousers
Sonia Rykiel pour H&M beret
Gustto Cokera Purse
I cannot wait to show you the outfits that I come up with. This collection surely did add color to my wardrobe. As for now, the beret is the only thing that I could wear out of the store! As for the rest of my outfit, I paired my favorite comfy pants with my new Marc by Marc Jacobs, and since the weather was beautiful I wore my new Mike & Chris jacket.
Wishing Everyone a Beautiful Day!!!
