Pretty Baubles: Anna Dello Russo for H&MOctober 29, 2012
month, the H&M for Anna Dello Russo collection hit stores. As
the collection was only available in a handful of stores across the
nation (with the majority in metropolitan areas), I knew getting the
necklace (pictured below; I first saw it in an issue of H&M
magazine and fell in love) that I wanted would be difficult.
With a $10 service charge (free overnight shipping included...Suddenlee was so thoughtful as to include the original packaging in the shipment, a nice touch), this was a reasonable fee considering I would be saving myself a trip and the hassle of (potentially) having to struggle for room with anxious shoppers.
The necklace itself was slightly below expectations - in person it's a bit cheap looking, which I was prepared for. I don't know that I would have spent $49.95 on it if I had time to ponder the purchase.
I saw a whole shelf full of AdR jewelry at the 7th avenue H&M store in NYC two days ago so those of you who are interested can probably still get a piece by putting a request through Suddenlee or, if you are local, pick up a piece for yourself. I have to say, the whole collection was unimpressive in person - many were bulky and others gaudy - but if you are eager to own a piece now's a good time to get your hands on one.
For those of you on the East Coast, stay safe on this stormy night.
