H&M has an affordable Birkenstock alternative for you to try this summer for only $24.95. This slip-on sandal has two imitation leather straps that criss-cross over the foot, what seems to be a cork foot base, and then a rubber sole. If you really want to try the Birkenstock look without the price, this shoe is it. This is the cheapest version I have seen this season. Check it out at H&M.
According to H&M‘s mass email today, select stores will carry the Swedish brand’s plus size clothes in the States. Unfortunately despite clicking the link, I couldn’t figure out which ‘select stores’ are carrying the size 14-24 line. The clothes are really cute. Are they as trendy and stylish as the main line brand? Yes and no, but I think with time, unless they discontinue the line again, the clothes will get better. Photo from here.
OMG!!! H&M will open a US webstore at the end of 2011. I can’t wait. What does this mean for those of you who, like myself, live hours away from the nearest H&M? Well… it means empty wallets. I wonder if we will be able to buy the designer collaborations online. That would be amazing because the nearest H&M is three hours away from me. I wish they would get online sooner.
