Shopping : My H&M Fashion Against Aids selection

April 26th and I’m online queuing at H&M. The Fashion Against Aids collection came out this morning at 9am and WOW did it go fast. When I managed to actually get online I had to hurry – in fact the top I wanted most sold out whilst in my basket ! Unfair ! Anyway, this is what I managed to grab despite the virtual crowd, for a mere £20.00 and all for a good cause (well, my wardrobe thinks so anyway!).

On est le 26 avril et comme beaucoup je fais la queue en ligne pour le site d’H&M. C’est la sortie de leur collection Fashion Against Aids ce matin et les fringues sont parties à une vitesse incroyable – le top que je voulais par dessus tout a même disparu de mon panier en cours de shopping ! Injuste ! Voilà ce que j’ai réussi à m’approprier malgré la foule virtuelle. Le tout pour seulement £20.00 et surtout pour la bonne cause (selon mon armoire !).

The downside : Delivery isn’t until JUNE ! / Le point négatif : Pas de livraison avant JUIN !

Don’t forget to follow my shopping adventures on Facebook, loads of tips and great sites coming your way !

Shopping : Charity Choice April 2012

Creative fashion is not only about DIYing but also about having fun with your style wherever your clothes were purchased. Fashion is about expressing yourself through what you wear and playing with clothes and accessories to fit your mood, an event or even your general personality. When looking for inspiration, the high-street can become a little hypnotizing and you may find it difficult thinking about the clothes you have at home to mix and match with your potential purchase or even find you end up buying things you wouldn’t normally dream of wearing. Of course shops have a million ways of making this happen, starting with the brain washing lights and music and the abundance of clothes in the depth of their shop. So, sometimes it’s nice to shop in new places, places that will inspire you to create yourself rather than beg someone helplessly to take your money and tell you what to wear ; ) A great place to go for a bit of something different is your local charity shop. The charity could be for cancer, it could be for the homeless it could be for the RSPCA like mine is. Whatever the cause it’s definitely a good one : retail therapy for next to nothing !

Take a look at what I found in my local RSPCA shop this month, for a total of UNDER £20 !

Necklace : I like this as it is so I will probably wear it a couple of times before it sees some serious DIYing – I have plans for you my precious !

Leotard : I once fell head over heels for a Manoush poncho with fringes all over but unfortunately couldn’t afford it. It will always be in my ♥… But now this leotard will be on my back !

Cuff : Spot on this season with multiple chains ! Love it !

Wedges : Originally bought in Zara, these wooden wedge pumps are still in great condition. I wouldn’t really buy shoes in a second hand shop but these look almost new, cost me £5 and fit perfectly…

Belt : A metallic soft leather belt from Topshop – bargain baby !

Have you recently had any successful charity shopping sprees ?
