Just to fill you in - Perth has always been lacking in the fashion department. Last year international fashion giants Topshop and Zara opened in multiple places around Perth, and now that H&M has joined the party I'm absolutely ecstatic.

H&M opened on the 29th of August at Joundalup shopping centre, which is quite far from Perth CBD - although I don't really mind. I went to the opening with my best friend and it was probably, no definitely, the highlight of my year. While we we were lining up outside they handed us goody bags, which included a cute pencil case/makeup bag, a water bottle and an umbrella. We spent almost 2 hours in there! There were so many things to look at and we wanted to buy almost everything. I took some sneaky pics of the massive store, so enjoy!

As you can see, it was absolutely jam packed, but that just added to the fun of it all.

This is the outfit that I wore to the opening, featuring a gingham cami from Cotton on, ripped at the knees black jeans from Lee Cooper, and blue high-top converse. I'm also wearing a smokey eye and my Thomas Sabo necklace.

I tried on this grey top with lace sleeves, the white top with a tropical print on it, the grey skater dress and a black dress with mesh cut outs. And yes I did leave my jeans on while trying on the dresses, don't worry - I'm not going to wear dresses with jeans underneath in public (or in private) EVER. 

My final picks which I ended up buying were:
1) The grey top with the lace sleeves, and
2) The grey skater dress

I'm planning to go back to H&M this weekend to also buy the black dress with the mesh cutouts, because I love that dress so much and have been thinking about it more than I should be. If I don't own that dress in the next few days there will be a problem.


And to end the day we visited Mecca Maxima, which, if you didn't already know, is the high-end makeup shop that stocks brands such as Nars, Urban Decay, Stila, and Too Faced. We spend way more time than necessary oooing and aaahhing over the gorgeous naked palettes and the two faced melted lipsticks. I didn't buy anything, but I sure will be back soon!

I hope you enjoyed my little adventure, I think next time I do something like this I might vlog it. Would you like to see a vlog?
