I Want Lanvin for H&M, Not Flowers

I am stressed out.

The holidays are almost here. The newish job is busier than ever. Mr. Diabolina is preparing for the trial of his career.  And in a few weeks, my mom will have her one year post brain surgery MRI. But little is stressing me the fuck out as much as Lanvin for H&M hitting stores this week.

For the first time, I want every single piece of a designer H&M collaboration.

The pieces look virtually indistinguishable from actual runway Lanvin at about a tenth of the price.

Which means every fashion hooker in LA is bum-rushing H&M on the first day. Literally.  I'm hearing talk of camping out on the sidewalk...like fashion bums.  Don't know that these old bones can take that.

But I NEED to get my paws on my two favorite pieces---the red and yellow dresses, EVERYONE's favorite pieces. Sigh.

Even if I were to sleep on a sidewalk and be one of the first in line, there's still the whole horror scene once you get inside the store. Frenzied hot chicks WILL cut you to get the piece/size/color they want.

I AM TOO OLD FOR A BLOODY FASHION VERSION OF 127 HOURS!

Even if I were able to Manny Paciquiao my way through the throngs of fashionistas foaming at the mouth, I'd still never nab my fave tee and faux fur chubby too.

And there's still those delicious ruffles and florals

UGH! And don't even get me started about the leopard accessories that would make my life complete.

At this point, I'd settle for one of the shopping bags.

GOOD GOD ALBER IS TRYING TO KILL ME WITH ALL THIS FASHION PORN!!!

It's like he made this Lynchian video just for me - a girl who loves her some pop up thought bubbles ;) 



Incidentally, my 11th anniversary with Mr. D is November 20, the day the collection hits stores. Mr. D, if you're reading, this Betty Draper lookalike said it best.

I waited in line for Viktor & Rolf starting at 4am and I was #91 in line and Asael #92. I hated the whole thing, the people, the overblown frenzy but I did leave with the 2 things I wanted. I feel too old for that nonsense now but wouldn't mind hiring someone off of craigslist to do the dirty work for me. I guess I should've been rich so I could pay an assistant to do it.

I think Fashion Intel is onto something - why don't you stimulate the economy twice by hiring some youngster to camp out and raid H&M on your behalf? It sounds both practical and patriotic to me, although I may not be in my right mind after looking at all the beatiful Lanvin pictures...(p.s. keeping my fingers crossed for your mom's continued good health)

You need to find an H&M in a small Mall where no one shops and, and well that will be the store without Lanvin huh? Dang it all, just bring boxing gloves and Neosporin. Oh, and lots of band aids....

Kind of random but do you want to buy the Lanvin Tee with the little face on it? i mean in case you havent bought it in a store but still want it...? I wanted to buy the other 2 tees but they were already sold out...
