Well, we have finally reached the status of Fabulousity here in SD! Thursday, May 22nd was the grand opening of the first H&M (thats HAA & MMM to you euros!) in San Diego. I have been waiting years for this day, really, it's kinda sick. And, crazy enough, it's it the Otay Ranch Plaza in Chula Vista.
I admit it, I am a cheap fashion lover...$5 stores, Anna's Closet's, the "Splendids" and "Excitements" of the malls, etc, etc, etc I love them all! With the fast pace of trends, and due to the fact that being in the industry I really do know how much clothes cost to make, I shop for the no name, wear me twice and toss me, spend less than dinner on me, clothes.
Jenna and I had to schedule a girls day to celebrate this event. SO, we caught up with my real estate agent/friend, Irasema, on Friday, grabbed some fuel at CPK (Tandoori chicken pizza a must try!) and headed over to see what was left on the racks. It was raining, so we had to double time it. Side bar- if you don't live in SD you might not know, but you will be hard pressed to find a mall within 2 hours of the border that has a roof, we like to bask in our sunshine, I guess. But, in the name of fashion, we feared the forewarned rain storm and made it inside the vast paradise!
Irasema (realestate agent) brought her two "assistants", Jeffrey-age 8, Jett-6 months, so we carefully manuvered the stroller through the packed racks, Jenna and I managing our warming Starbucks..and we were still able to find a few things each that were a must try.
Anyways, I can only hope you can be blessed enough to live close to an H&M. Watch their site for the celebrity fashion additions (They did it before Target). We can't even talk about the Victor&Rolf tux for $100!
Have fun shopping!
