Today's outfit which was put on at 6 AM to line up for the H&M Marni event was inspired by this photo on wearing oversized denim shirts.
Mine is not really oversized but at least it is tunic length to be wearable over these liquid leggings.
Denim Shirt - From Turkey
Striped T-neck - Charlotte Russe
Liquid Leggings - I.N.C. by Macy's
Necklace - Send the Trend
Boots - Steve Madden
Purse - 6951
THE H&M MARNI EVENTWell as planned my friend and I met around 6:30 AM in front of the store and got in line. We also found out that the mall parking lots are locked during that time and could not park at the lot that is closest to the store which prevented me from bringing in the folding chairs and blanket but it wasn't bad.
The line was not as long as we had thought.
Way too many security guards for the event. Not sure what they were expecting. Some were having fun with the situation and some were taking their jobs waaaay too seriously.
We were in the 2nd group to go in with a time slot of 8:25 AM to 8:40 AM. They let us in the store once the first group was let in the restricted shopping area. There were again waaaay too many security guards but also much needed number of employees. Also a DJ!
We brought all our purchases to the mall food court sitting area. Yes we are outdoors. This is southern CA and 90% of the malls here are outdoor malls.
Here are our coveted accessory purchases:
And the clothing Items (trying them on in the mall bathroom!):
This one i returned even though I liked it a lot. I just won't wear it that much and needs ironing...
Kept the tee but returned the pants. they were too restrictive.
I really wanted the pants of this top but they were out of my size. The top I wasn't crazy about. Again too restrictive.
If you missed out on the sale check out my friend's ebay links HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE as she is selling some of the accessories shown in this post...
You might also wonder how I was able to swing this with the kids. It was a team effort. My husband got them fed and ready in the morning and dropped them off at my mom's house before going to work. My mom who wasn't working today brought them to the mall late morning and we all saw the movie Lorax together then had lunch before coming home and hosting a playdate at our house in the afternoon!
