The Holy Grail opens Thursday in Pasadena
For those of you not familiar with H&M...picture this---Ikea for clothes--- on crack. I'm serious, it's INSANE. cool, cool stuff & dirt-ass cheap. I'm sure I've employed many a child laborer buying from them [kidding people!] I'm not sure of the space they've dedicated to the Pasadena store but NYC's locations are 3 stories tall. If you are a fashionista you may feel faint at the site of such glory. This is not for the amateur shopper, you will need to battle for space and hang on tight.
Now I warn you....their sizing is horrible [small and inconsistant] you will need to try on 500 pieces of clothing to find 2 that fit. Blame it on those damn Europeans who don't eat they just smoke and drink wine.
Expect complete chaos, lines to the dressing room for days, crabby employees who can't keep up with returning items to the floor and gobs and gobs of the coolest sh*t around.
Yes, they carry great men's clothing as well. Sizing runs small for you too honey-- the men smoke as well.
I have to say I'm a little bit sad they are here. I have traveled to NYC just to shop at H&M and felt like it was my LA secret shopping place. All good things must come to an end I suppose. They have a location opening at the Beverly Center later this fall. Shop on!
