Before H&M opened their store at the mall where I work, I always looked at bloggers wearing their stuff and wrote it off saying I'm never going to get my hands on "this" or "that". But it all changed several months ago, after the "grand opening" with the red carpet and all. Now if I wait a month or two, I can get my grubby little paws on cool stuff at pretty good prices and feel like I'm part of the club.

Why am I telling you this? Because I saw these cool metallic sweaters on HRH Collection blog and I really like the silver version (Alex modelled it on her video here).

The other day I wandered into H&M on my break and found the same sweater in gold! Of course, I had to snatch it and wore it the very next day.

My friend at work called it golden fish-scales. So the official name is "goldfish sweater" now. Paired it with simple jeans, some gold bracelets and walking boots (11 hour day footwear).

I didn't want to overload it on gold, so I wore these mixed metal earrings with turquoise beads. They go with everything.

I got some compliments on looking good and I credit the sweater. I felt great all day and didn't even want to take it off at the end of the day.

In the meantime, the weekend is near, but first I have to go to the income tax office for some permits (two jobs, tax adjustment, that kind of thing). And I have to translate an episode of Parenthood by Sunday.
Funny, I hate and love this show at the same time. It annoys me to no end but I care for the characters anyway. How would you explain something like that?


  1. I love that gold sweater, I saw two people wearing it at London Fashion Week x

  2. Wow thank you for telling me! How cool is that!
