It’s been a weird couple months weather-wise in London, (isn’t it always?), so I think I’ve spent more time than usual hiding from the rain and lusting over Spring-ey fashion online. I’m particularly digging these floral A-Morir glasses…I usually find the brand a bit too Lady Gaga for me but these are pretty and not overly-obnoxious. (I think there’s a big difference between a statement piece and a LOOK AT ME!!!! screaming piece).

After whining extensively about how over-hyped the Lanvin Hearts H&M collection is, guess who woke up at 6:30am to go stand outside the Oxford Street H&M this morning? Moi. Dhruv of The Fashion Meal and I were among the hoards of
crazy people fashionistas that were willing to brave the cold and wrath of over-caffeinated Lanvin-crazed shoppers to get first dibs on the collection.
Fortunately, neither Dhruv nor I had any interest in the womenswear, so we didn’t have to line up and get wristbands and all that jazz. We just marched in with a gaggle of asian fashionistos and impeccably dressed men who descended upon the small section devoted to Lanvin menswear like a pack of ravenous (yet fabulous) designer-starved wolves.
The sunglasses disappeared in approximately 19 seconds, but Dhruv managed to grab me the LAST pair. Honestly I don’t think I would have bought them if people hadn’t been scrabbling madly for them, but they are selling for a pretty penny on eBay so I have no regrets. I really wish H&M hadn’t made the section so tiny and only put out a few sizes of each item out at a time, but I think it was to intentionally create an atmosphere of urgency so people would buy more. I guess it worked.
Dhruv was SO happy. He got the wonderful shiny brogues. We had to flip a coin to decide between the brown and the blue…let’s just say it took several coin flips.
After the chaos we needed fuel so we got mini red velvet cupcakes from the Lola’s inside Topshop. I LOVE red velvet cupcakes, especially mini ones, and I think I got more excited about these than the Lanvin launch. I wish I had gotten like, a zillion of them.
Some people bought SO MUCH STUFF. They were spending thousands of dollars…that’s pretty intense for a high street brand. It’s crazy what a name can do for a brand.
Did you guys get anything from the collection? Or want anything?
My friend has been obsessing over these Fendi SS11 glasses for weeks, she’s starting to rub off on me…I love the green ones!
Also, is it just me or does that last model look EXACTLY like Demi Moore?
I sense a new obsession…I’m so excited for summer eyewear.

I hate stealing from other fashion blogs but I just HAD to repost these MYKITA x Romain Kremer sunglasses…how rad are they??? If I ever get to fly a spaceship I’m rocking these (in my dreams, in other words).

No. Way. These are possibly the most amazing sunglasses I have EVER seen. I’m obsessed. Maybe they’re a comment on the voyeurism inherent to the fashion industry…or maybe they are just BADASS.
Oh, how I wish they could be mine…I’m almost tempted to ask someone on Etsy to make me a version…but I’m totally against knock-offs so I guess I’ll just have to pine for them :(
“TV Specs” by Linda Farrow x Jeremy Scott, available upon request online at Doshaburi.
I am currently packing to fly to Switzerland tomorrow morning to see my mom and my cat (mostly my cat…haha kidding!) but before I zip off on a plane I just HAD to post these amazing Alexander Wang for Linda Farrow zipper sunnies. HOW COOL ARE THESE? I need them immediately, but they are $365 at Opening Ceremony. I have a feeling they’re going to sell out by the time I am back next week, despite the high price tag.
*Sigh* Even though I can’t have them, it makes me happy to know they exist. Would you rock these? Don’t tell me you wouldn’t!
