H&M is Coming to Austin!

Yes that’s right, H&M is coming to my fair city.  And because I live here I cannot tell you how happy, dare I say dizzy with excitement I am at the thought that H&M is finally finding its way to my neck of the woods.

I remember the first time I shopped at an H&M, it was in New York City.  I walked out of that store with more clothes than I had ever purchased in one outing and I still had plenty of money left in my bank account.

The collection for F/W 2012-13 is fashion forward and edgy.  Austin Dandi’s will be looking their best and can mix their Austin style with these designs and create some eye grabbing looks.

The collection has incorporated bold colors…

Variations on the theme of jacket…


…and layering.  My closet and I cannot wait until they open their doors right up the street.  I plan to mix H&M into my shopping routine, along with all of the amazing local retailers that make Austin one of the coolest emerging fashion cities in the country (yes I said Austin!)

Hot off the Paris runway the collection for 2012/2013 by Maison Martin Margiela is splendid.

There are looks for Dandi.   What I love about the look above is that we are all so used to seeing this grouping and silhouette in camel but here it is in hues of pink, fabulous.

How daring and modern is this? Another fabulous diversion in an almost Pea coat silhouette, not to mention the absurdly shiny ‘look at me’ pants that only a brave Dandi might want to venture out in.

This look has all the classic pieces but the shirt is a bit blousy, perhaps not the favorite choice of a typical Dandi ( and I do hope that’s not real fur!)  Love the splashes of turquoise.

Vroom, vroooom.  An interesting and stylish take on the sexy and aluring motorcycle uniform.  It almost looks like a cropped formal jacket on top of a Ducati (and love the boots)

H&M is one of the best places for a Dandi to shop who wants to be on trend and who needs to watch their budget for fashion.  While in Los Angeles recently I did a little shopping and found these great items that can enhance any Dandi’s wardrobe.

Perfectly styled. It brings a little whimsy to the look with the checkered shirt. Put this with a navy tie and dark linen pants for office, shorts and loafers for Sunday brunch.

Linen jackets are great for your spring/ summer wardrobe.  Match this with a pair of linen pants or white jeans, t-shirt and your favorite sneakers.

Straw hats for spring and summer.

A pair of linen shorts are a must for trips to P-town on Cherry Grove.
