{That orange blouse is going to be spotted all over the blogosphere. I didn't end up buying it but I think every other lady at the event did!} 

Walking into the grand opening of the H&M in Metrotown was surreal. The racks of clothing were untouched, there was wine and delicious appy's all around and everything was 20% off. Within minutes of arriving all of us ladies had arms full of amazing pieces, a cocktail in our hands and we still managed to chat and say hello to all our fellow bloggers.

That's talent my friends.

It was such a great evening and to top it off I got to meet some more of my favourite Vancouver bloggers. I managed to pick up a few goodies that I will be showing all of you very soon.

Thanks so much to LJ PR and H&M for putting on this event. If you haven't gone to check out the new H&M in Metrotown then I hope you get the opportunity to soon. It's 2 floors of shopping amazingness... I may or may not be already planning my next shopping trip.


  1. yay this was so much fun, I was so excited that you were there...and thank you for being so helpful when it came to choosing what I was actually going to buy! You are awesome...and you look amazing, loving that lace blazer!

  2. I am in love with your blazer! Lace and gray = amazing. Also I am super jealous of your pool. If you can have one in Canada I should be able to convince my husband that we need one in Minnesota!

  3. Definitely looks like a great evening. Curious to see your buys!

  4. I was there on Wednesday night as well and was really impressed with the new store-it's much more open and easy to move around in than the downtown location. I couldn't enjoy the cocktails since I was driving but my friend really enjoyed them! I only picked up a couple of things, some accessories and a silky horse printed blouse.

    Your lace blazer is just gorgeous-very unique piece.

  5. It was nice seeing you that night, albeit too briefly. :)

  6. Super cute! H&M is the best :)

  7. Fun fun fun! I love H&M and blogger meetups, of course.

  8. adorable blazer. you look fantastic! seems like it was a fun event! <3 www.rubygirlblog.com

  9. Oh Melissa! I haven't had the chance to comment on any of your posts. But I do read :)

    LOOOOVE the blouse you're wearing. That burnt orange is to die for!! And those darling details! GAH!

    H&M is quite beautiful at Metrotown. It makes all the other H&M look like shambles. Love it.I didn't go to the opening :( but went the very next day and got myself a $10 polkadot dress. SO gorgeous and at a bargain!

  10. I know that when you said "I didn't buy that orange blouse," what you really meant was "I didn't buy it for me but I'm sending it to MF b/c I love her and she loves orange and doesn't have an H&M nearby." Thank you so much.

  11. Yeahhhh I'm seconding Monkeyface's comment. Because you just knew we don't have H&M in New Zealand and that I would fall in love with that orange blouse as soon as I saw it. ;)

    Being serious now, I am obsessed with your blazer! I love how you wore it and this sounds like so much fun.

  12. Found your blog via Discovering Elegance - you've got wicked style! I'm really excited to try out some of your recipes as well.



  13. That pre-opening event was fun! I felt lucky to attend and snagged a few fun items as well!

  14. Do you follow Carrie at This Free Bird? (She is on my blog roll if not.) She would DIE over your lace blazer! Just sayin.

  15. That blazer is so fantastic...I love the lace...and it looks fabulous with the polka dot blouse!
    This looks like such a fun event! I always wish I lived in/near a city!!
