The opening of the first H&M store here in the Philippines rocked the fashion scene. Imagine, people falling in line a day before the shop opens, crazy right? But yeah, I posted on FB that people should not panic, hehe… There are more branches opening soon, I saw branches to be opened in Robinsons Magnolia and SM Makati. I love H&M too, and I look forward shopping in it whenever we’re in HK and last month, in Bangkok. Pero di ko pa rin tatyagain pumila :p.
I was chatting with a friend and I said I have mixed reactions about H&M opening here. Kasi I won’t have something to look forward to when we go abroad. First, Forever 21, Uniqlo, then Cotton On, and now H&M. Slight lang naman :p. I really like H&M among the retail brands mentioned, H&M kasi is classic and trendy at the same time. Uniqlo is my second fave because of good quality and its classic styles. Not much of a fan of Forever 21 and Cotton On.
Anyway, funny story how we got to buy Gwen’s whole outfit. Originally, when we first went out, she’s wearing pink sleeveless shirt, shorts, and her saltwater sandals. We went to our agenda that day, Thai cooking class, after lunch and since we have nothing to do, we checked out Siam Paragon Mall. H&M greeted me at the entrance hehe. Jeff allowed me to indulge while he searched for a sofa inside the store since Gwen fell asleep. H&M in Siam Paragon has 2 floors only (H&M Philippines has 3 floors daw!). Hindi pa ako nakakapili nakita ko gising na si Gwen. Tapos nilalamig daw because of the full blast aircon. She went inside wearing a sando-shorts-sandals and went out looking like this.
Pano nangyari yun? We decided to buy her a jacket or long sleeves top. So we bought this long sleeved denim for 599 baht, maganda naman talaga. Kala ko okay na, pero kita ko balahibo sa binti, nakatayo, nilalamig pa rin. So we headed to the dressing room to fit some pants. Ayos lang coz she really need new pants, bitin na yung mga pantalon nya. It’s our second return to the cashier to buy the 899 pants. Near the cashier, there were shoes on display and she’s eyeing the Hello Kitty ballet flats, walang kasya sa kanya kaya we got the leopard print sneakers na lang.
Hindi na nilalamig, sakit naman bulsa ko…
I checked out the H&M Philippines website and saw the denim top, it’s also available here for 699 pesos. Affordable price and considering the forex rate, cheaper pa sya dito sa atin.
May nabili ba ako? Wala, hehe. Buti na lang meron na dito 🙂
