Last Minute Options at H&M Herald Square

Last week we shot a video at Sephora on 34th Street. That morning, I was guilty of a classic girl move: kept a guy (my video intern) waiting because I wasn't satisfied with my outfit. So where does a girl go for last-minute solutions?

H&M, of course. I ran to the Herald Square store, half a block from Sephora, walked and grabbed through the first floor, and encountered no lines at the dressing room. 10:15am is a great time to shop 34th Street. I chose two blouses and a tunic top (ok, it might be a dress). And it was a tough decision because all three were viable options.

Wearing H&M tunic/dress with Gap 1969 jeans and wedge Swedish Hasbeens for H&M, which is why I'm towering over Sephora's Christina like a giantess. Never compromise on heels if you're tall, embrace the towering effect.

Total shopping time, including try-on and check-out? About 18 minutes. In the end it was tunic for me, and I love the choice. The above doesn't show the full-length, sadly, but it got several compliments later in the day. I may be going back for one of the blouses, though, as they are loose & floaty, perfect for this smothering heat.

Also, for you last minute girls, H&M will let you wear your purchase out the door. You have to pay for it first, then head back to the dressing rooms for your Supergirl transformation. Makes sense, as it'd be awkward getting that security device off at the counter.

This is why I love you. Well, one of many reasons anyway ...
