I fell for the Matthew Williamson for H&M Summer 2009 hard when I first saw it and fantasized about getting so many pieces but to my dismay, the Atlanta market received only a very limited selection. Well not to be outdone, I made it my duty to track down at least one piece from the colourful collection. I found a suit at the Mall of Georgia H&M store only for it to be one size too small. True enough I could squeeze myself in it but it felt restricting and I looked like a stuffed sausage. I wouldn’t let that stop me so I asked the sales girl to track down all markets with my size ( an 8 ) and write them all down for me so I could call. As luck would have it I tracked a couple swim suits down in NYC. Oh the H&M gods were smiling down on me because one of my good friends lives there and another one of my friends was on her way from Atlanta to visit in a couple of weeks.
A plan was born! I asked my friend to go to the store and try on the two suits and send me pictures from her phone. Once I made my selection she bought it for me and agreed to meet my other friend to give it to her to bring back to Atlanta to me. Woo! Wee! Don’t you love it when a plan comes together?
