Floss Angeles: Marni At H&M Pre-shopping Party

We’re known for making the red carpet sizzle, but Los Angeles isn’t necessarily known as one of the fashion capitals of the world. How rude! I’ve worked in the LA fashion scene for over 6 years and we’ve been known to get our party on from time to time.  The new “Floss Angeles” section to my blog is your look at all the fancy places and flossy people I see while attending events in this city. I often find DIY inspiration while out and about so stay tuned and enjoy the fun.

Today is the day Marni for H&M arrives in stores. To celebrate, H&M invited LA’s fashion elite for some early in store shopping. There was music, champagne and lots of empty hangers. That’s right…empty! I arrived 20 mins late (ya know fashionably late) and everything had already been scooped up. Obviously if you snooze, you loose with this crowd. There were people walking around with bags on bags on bags full of Marni merchandise. Forget March Madness! It was full-blown Marni Madness inside the H&M store on Sunset Blvd.

I saw lots of friends while in the fashion trenches. I always love seeing the fabulous Amanda Garrigus! And can we talk about her amazing vintage button statement necklace?! It’s non Marni or H&M, but still fab and so DIYable.

Marni’s runway collection is known for fun prints and chunky accessories and their H&M collaboration didn’t disappoint.  The merchandise went fast. Below are a few of my favorite statement pieces I’m obsessing over. And hey with the prices ranging from $19.95 to $49.95 I think this is a case of the “just buy, ’cause you’ll never be able to afford Marni these prices!”

What do you guys think about this H&M collabo? The Marni for H&M officially hits stores today. You can check out the entire collection at HM.com
