are you excited about balmain x h&m… or nah?

balmain

hell yeah I’m excited for this collab, but for some strange reason, every time I get excited, I immediately think about that episode of love and hip hop LA, when Malaysia joins the the group of ladies for dinner, dressed in head to toe alexander wang x h&m. Draya made a comment about Malaysia’s outfit, “… and you look like h&m.” uhmmm SHADE. like damn Draya, you got us bargain shoppers feeling some kind of way. So yeah, now I’m a little hesitant about the whole situation. I know, silly, but whatever.

the entire balmain x h&m collection is amazing. priced at $99- $649 I haven’t saved as many coins as I need for the best items, but I found a few piece’s that are in my budget, sorta.

so listen, remember the alexander wang x h&m collab? i was so caught up on the idea that because of the hype, h&m would be a mad house… FALSE. I guess because there is an h&m on every corner in NYC, there was more order and control than I expected. so here are some of my personal tips if you’re trying to score even a scarf from this collection:

EARLY ARRIVAL is key. arriving to an h&m location at 10 am is unacceptable. arrive around 7am.

DO NOT try and shop online, the website will crash.

BE PREPARED to only be allowed to purchase 2-3 items at a time

so what are your thoughts? are you excited about the collection… or nah?
