You can call me crazy. Yes, you can. But also a little bit angry. Yes, you can.
I was in the H&M shop this morning at 9h40 to try out and hopefully buy some pieces of the Sonia Rykiel Pour H&M collection. I wanted some undies and that black silk vest I saw online. And maybe a kimono (something I’ve been looking for for a long time now! Say: 2 years, maybe more). So I got in the car for a 20 minute drive just for that. The collection could be bought all over Belgium, said the site, so that wasn’t the problem. I was only hoping Sonia Rykiel wasn’t as important as Jimmy Choo :)
9h40. The Sonia Rykiel Collection was still there. Everything was still there. Well, everything… The basic stuff… When I asked for the kimono and the black silk vest, they told me that was only available in the big shops of Antwerp and Brussels. Say what? I’m disappointed. Seriously. Leuven isn’t a small city I think. There were a lot of people I saw running around with that new collection.
This is not something I do every day. I really wanted that silk vest. I really wanted that silk brief. And YES, the website told me I could find it in Leuven.
So: Dear H&M, when you do something special. When you make a mini-site. When you make a button: “Find a store” when hovering over that item. Please. F*cking Please. Please tell me the truth. That my favorite item can’t be found at H&M in Leuven. It would mean a lot to me. Thank you.
So what does a girl do when she is a little bit sad? She eats her ass off. Well, I’m not a normal girl, so I bought a cooking book at Fnac. Ha!
Not “Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights“ (I want to buy that book just for that name, such a lovely happy name!) but “Feestelijke recepten“, instant smile! I also wanted to buy an interior book and an arts&crafts book but those paper things are so expensive! Next time baby! And then I won’t stop at H&M at 9.40 in the morning.
