Bumping this up Probably won't be looking for chain store/designer shopping so much (I'll also be going to NYC and LA) but if there's anything that's really unique to Houston - like great vintage, I'd really appreciate it Or if everything in this thread is still relevant, that'll also be awesome
i was listing the radio like 3 days ago,and they said houston is the 1st city where people shop the most. n they also said houston have 54 malls
i dont know how acurate that is,but that what i heard.....
.i dont know if the count all the flea market as malls too,lol
Both H&M stores are sadly disappointing, and for a european like myself I can gladly say H&M in Europe (I am from Athens, so I only have experience with the stores in Athens) cannot be compared to the H&M stores in Houston. I am not sure if this is just a Houston thing, poor visual merchandising/stocking due to the fact that the stores just recently opened or if it is this bad throughout the US, but I can say the H&M stores are not worth a visit, especially if you live inside the loop and have to drive out there for basically nothing? I didn't find a single thing I liked when I visited the one at Willowbrook Mall. Their Men's collection and section was much better than the Women's in my opinion, and the quality looked great for the prices too, but other than that I was highly disappointed because I've been waiting for this to happen for the longest time :/
the men's deparment is really BAD
n I can believe there is only one Zara in Houston
I work near one of the H&M's and every time that I go in there, I am so disappointed. I wouldn't wear anything that they carry. It all feels so cheap.
On the other hand, I *LOVE* our Zara. As far as vintage, I have heard good things about the consignment shop, More Than You Can Imagine off of Westheimer and Kirby.
On the other hand, we apparently have evolved - since Saks carries some Marni lol. Also, while I haven't had any lucky actually *finding* Elizabeth and James sunglasses, every shop I've hit up has at least heard of the brand.
