H&M are coming online!

As I’ve been known to mention before, I love the British high street, despite the fact most of its contents are in fact European, there’s nothing quite like what we have here. And finally it would appear that one of my absolute favourite high street fixtures is bringing the high street to us.

H&M already have a healthy following and shops in most cities in the UK but as of September 16th, you will be able to buy online! I can’t quite explain how happy this makes me, particularly as I’m headed back to uni in 2 weeks time, there will be no H&M nearby!

My love affair with H&M started in Liebe Deutschland. The Germans rather like their H&M and in the city I lived in there were 4 different shops, and although the Euro was shockingly bad, it was amazing value. There also wasn’t a huge choice of other shopping so I learned to become very at home in those 4 stores.

IT’s been a lasting affair too. My latest proud find being sweater dresses. Yes I know we’re only just into September but after last winter (Eastern Germany= VERY cold!) I’m already thinking about layers, wool and things that don’t take hours and hours to dry. I got into sweater dresses for last year, but these little beauties are set to be my staples until the spring. Wearable with tights or leggings, boots or shoes, throwing on after the gym or to go to lectures they are by far the easiest thing in my wardrobe. They were also more bargain-ful than I should telling you , because I’ll never be able to get any more. £9.99. Yes a mere £10 for all of that! And even better they come in a selection of colours from everything from a girl’s best friend (black) to my particular favourite (grey marl) and some brighter colours and even stripes.

So needless to say, I’ll be logging on, on the 16th to see whether I can score a couple more of my favourite bargains and see if I can find any other goodies too. Happy hunting.

Know of any great high street gems? Got some news we might have missed? Or just want to hype your very favourite thing about the Great British High Street? Do let me know.

P.S. For those of you who hate to be behind, if you sign up for the H&M newsletter you will get yourself exclusive access to their online shopping BEFORE everybody else.
