SHOPPING

OUT SHOPPING IN MONTREAL

I went to Montreal for the day last Saturday for the soul purpose of hitting up H & M and Urban Outfitters since we don't have one in my city. I was a little dissapointed by both stores because I didn't find a lot of the stuff that I had previously seen on their websites. H & M seems to have increased their prices, it could just be me though...I get sticker shock easily.

Lace dress: Simmons
Anorak Spring coat: H & M

Sweater Dress: H & M
Tshirt: Urban Outfitter

WE GOT STUFF FOR THE HOUSE TOO

Top: H & M
Bed Sheets and Note Book: Urban Outfitters

These remind me of my childhood, I haven't worn them yet though, maybe next week?

Belt: H & M


Imagine my surprise when I got back home and I saw this broken necklace. I had dropped it in the store and I didn't notice the center part had come off when I picked it up, you think the cashier would have noticed?

The stuff I wanted to get at H & M but didn't see :(


MORE STUFF FOR THE HOUSE

Multicolored cups: Urban Outiftters
The best lip balm: Kiehl's


Funky Plates: Urban Outfitters

I'm pretty pleased with what I got, I've been wanting to go to Urban for like a year now since I didn't have it in Australia, though I didn't find much in terms of clothes. The Urban in Montreal is really small, and I felt like they were a little overpriced.

You look like you got a good haul nonetheless. I've seen the leather jacket at the H&M near me, but maybe you'll see it next tiem around, when they restock?

Grace said...

thandie is gorgeous! i love that photoshoot too!

Live Fabulously said...

oh i LOVE everything you bought! thandie is so pretty. i love how she paired the yellow heels w/the purple lace dress.

Wendy said...

I want a Anorak coat, and the one you bought is so rad. Urban sells really cute household items.

The Clothes Horse said...

Your shopping makes me want to go blow money! I love Thandie---she's out of this world and so many amazing looks from her too.

lalaliu said...

cute finds! and that photoshoot is super fun! reminds me when i photoshop myself with myself. haha :D

Secretista said...

Ummmmmm I LOVE POSH!

Thandie's photos look amazing! haha

I hate that when you go to a store with a mission THINKING you will complete that mission, and you are shut down.

Secretista said...

OH! and I saw that jacket at the H&M in my hometown, but their biggest size didn't fit my man like biceps and I felt very uncomfortable, so I bought a different one. Buttt, that specific one is super cutee and chic and I wish I had that one!

Tiger Tem said...

That a fantastic shoot with Thandie. She's one of my favourite actresses around at the moment. Great blog.

Fashion Tidbits said...

how much were those silver bauble hair ties?

Mash said...

thandie is gorgeous :) i love the photoshoot it's amazing lol

Héloïse J. said...

wow!!!! the photoshoot with thandie is amazing. thank you thank you :D and the miu miu glasses below it's the second pair i would like to have for this SS!! (the 1st are a pair of chloe ones)

Romeika said...

It's not just you, many times I go to H&M, I rarely find the stuff I had previously seen on their website... The exception was once I went shopping in Malmo, Sweden.

Mine said...

I love all of the thinks you've brought at Urban Outfitters.
I've searched for exactly something like this.
But in Germany especially at my hometown there's no oppurtunity to buy something from Urban Outfitters.Hate it!

copperoranges said...

where i am from (TN) the nearest H&M is in chicago! so i only get to go once or twice a year when i am at school (in IL). i think that urban is overpriced, but i think that the lux and free people brands are really nice and (almost!) worth it.

Kira Fashion said...

the new belt is so great!

i wish i have a H&M here in my city :)

a kiss

thanks so much for linking me!
you re great!

Adele said...

thandie newton is so great for me right now! specially what she wore to the BAFTAS love it!
Love the plain but cool tee you bought from urban outfitters :) and the dresses you wanted to buy were super cool! x

Camilla said...

Really love the lace dress you bought. Thanks for checking out my blog, love yours too! Exchange links? :)

Cate said...

i normally don't like h&m, but that sweater dress is awesome. and the leather jacket looks really cool too. so does the flower print dress and the black dress with the coloured flowers at the neck.
i like thandie newton's hair&face better when her hair is not tied back. her style is nice though.
gosh that photo shoot is freaky ^^
and i don't like posh at all - though i have to admit that i like those wide-legged jeans of hers (but that's all)!

Miss Woo said...

You got some great buys, I love the hair bubbles! Reminds me of childhood and school days too!

deexdeexdreamer said...

thandie newton is alwas looks fantastic without fail- i bet she still looks a knockout in pjs!

jayne said...

ooo cute finds at h&m

i've never thought of vicky b having a fav son haha!

Imelda said...

I really like your buys!
And the photo shoot is really funny and original!

Mrs X said...

Loving the plates from Urban Outfitters!

coco said...

I love that shoot with Thandie, it is such an amazing idea! I hadn't seen it before either so I really loved it!
She has serious style...

Molly ;) said...

I love the stuff you bought!
I have that belt, i didnt realise that they sold the same as they do here in the UK :)

Seraphine said...

Wow a big galaxy of fun things, styles, and photo shoots. You have an amazing blog.
I get price shock everytime I buy something (it's costing much more than the 4.9% or whatever the government is reporting as the current level of inflation).

The Seeker said...

I really like all he stuff you bought. Maybe it's early for them to have all the pieces.

AsianCajuns said...

Looks like you had a successful day of shopping even if overall the stores were disappointing. I hate when that happens!

SET said...

I LOVE THIS POST. SOMETIMES BUYING FROM ONLINE WITH URBAN OUTFITTERS IS BETTER. I LOVE THE PICSOG THANDIE BEAUTIFUL AND EDGY. LOVE THE THINGS YOU PICKED OUT BUT THE PREFERRED ONES ARE BETTER LOOKING.

addicted said...

THANDIE NEWTON IS SERIOUSLY AMAZING!!

addicted said...

i love ally hilfiger! did you read about her art instillation in chelsea? she does variations of the number 8!

Anonymous said...

the urban in toronto is quite big, but definitely overpriced. and we cant buy online in Canada because they have a ridiculous shipping fee.
how much is the HM leather jacket?

cotton candy said...

i love your sweater dress and its one of the best shades that you could get it in!! so jealous i am. lol.

Debbie Shiamay said...

Yeee i love the things u bought! Haha take pics!!! And Thandie Newton is the bomb.

!*!*!*!*!Fresh and Fab!*!*!*!*! said...

stylefinder said...

All those clothes are so cute! I love the lightweight feel of those dresses- I found a bunch of different styles at artfulwears.com for really great prices- you should check them out!

hannah said...

oh my! all of your purchases are wonderful. i really love that anorak.

it is so dissapointing when you see something in a magazine or online and they just dont have it at the store.

peace

Neekoh said...

That H&M leather jacket is my all-time drool-worthy item. I think I might have to get my ass out of the house this weekend and trek out to the nearest H&M to snag it.
And so true about Cruz!! I always think the same thing to myself!

stilettostetico said...

Thandie Newton est tout simplement RADIEUSE !!! Délicate et Classieuse Féline au sourire irrésistible . . .

I love Thandie Newton - she's not as well known as many other celebrities, but she has such a sophisticated style and so much acting talent. Her role in Crash definitely made take notice of her - she did a fantastic job on that film.

aschlee said...
