4 Oct: The Day I Caught Crocodiles, Snakes and Lots of Gold

Anna Dello Russo for H&M Accessories Collection

My stash of Anna Dello Russo at H&M! I think I burnt a large hole in my pocket, boo hoo!

4 October was the day I caught a crocodile, lots of snakes and gold. Nope, I haven’t turned Indiana Jones, I just went to try my luck at getting some of Anna Dello Russo at H&M jewelry pieces. It was definitely a good day, cos’ I got every single piece I was craving for, plus a few more (naughty hands, I told you to leave those alone!!).

The store at Orchard Building, Singapore opened at 10AM. Customers were let in by the 20s, and given 10 minutes to shop. A useful tip would be to note down the items you want and map out your route while queuing, cos’ once you enter you only have 10 minutes and it will be like a supermarket dash.I always remembered my first H&M collaboration – I wasn’t aware of the 10-minute rule, and got a rude shock when the store announced “Customer, you have one minute left.” Lucky that I am a well-trained shopaholic *wink*

It was good there were mannequins showing which shelves the items I wanted were at.

Mad rush to grab like they were free. The trolley cases went the fastest, followed by the mini clutches and turquoise bangles. Heard the collection did really well in Europe. While the items did move, I didn’t really feel the excitement or hear any squeals from ecstatic shoppers at the Singapore store. Most of the shoppers were Caucasians or Middle Eastern…perhaps the collection was a bit too loud for the typical Singaporean.

Store Display. I am amazed I still managed to find time to take some photos LOL! I think the sales staff were astonished too, cos’ the other shoppers were so busy grabbing stuff! Oh dear, I think I am going blog-crazy LOL.

Opening up my stash at home…

This is my favourite piece in the collection. I first saw a similar crocodile choker in a Korean drama and searched high and low for it but to no avail – perhaps cos’ it’s so crazy the manufacturers doubted they could find enough crazy people to buy it. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw this.

Amazing bejeweled 3-coil snake bangle

An intricate snake choker. I must say the pieces are quite well-made for a high street brand.

Gold bling-bling coil bracelet. I have so many wonderful pieces to attend events with chum Darren! He always makes me laugh with his ‘who-on-earth-would-wear-that?!’ expression and humorous comments – yeah, at my expense.

Oooh, this is SO pretty. I will feel like a baroness in a Victorian era wearing this. Absolutely lurve it!

Over-the-top sunnies. I am so loving the crocodile sunnies, although the left one with a chain feels a bit heavy. Let’s see how the wear test goes.

I wasted no time in wearing my croco sunnies to a swell staycation with an amazing swimming pool.

That’s Darren’s response to my sunnies – “You’ve gone looney, girl!” haha :D

Watch this blog as I debut the rest of the pieces on Look of the Day!

  2. and so tarzan has found his singaporean jane… definitely not a plain jane this one. awesome pieces and great shots!

    • I think Tarzan found himself a prosperous Jane…and complaining of backaches from the mass! And no wonder Singapore has lesser trees now…all the branches broken when prosperous Jane tried to swing on them! And look forward to meeting more of my snakes and crocodiles soon ;) *heart still pain…spend so much!*

  3. Thanks for the advice and great picks on the collection! I’m going for my first H&M collaboration next month as well, for the Margiela for H&M launch. Might I ask how early did you have to queue for ADR?

    • Thanks Claire!Glad you liked the post and my shopping stash:) I got lucky for ADR – the store opened at 10am, and I was there at 9am. I would say safer to go earlier than that though..MMM is super popular!

What do you think? Let me know!
