    Ok, I knew that the black and white striped SR pour HM sweater was supposed to be oversized, but this is just absurd. I got two - a medium for me and an XS for my sister. I tried mine on and it was HUGE. So I got the idea to try on the XS, and it fits me! My sister would have been swimming around in it.

    Meanwhile the pink jacket fits me nicely in the medium I ordered, so it's not crazy sizing across the board. It seems to be intentional on that sweater.

    Whenever it says "oversized" on their website I know I have to order the smallest size possible to have the item fit somehow. It really is ridiculous.

    I saw some things from the Garden Collection in the stores today. I was a little disappointed to be honest. It all looks way cuter in the pictures.

    i saw two items! one was a white tunic (there was also a peach) with detailing on the sleeves... pretty cute. the other though, was one of the floral babydoll type dresses.. was not impressed at all. i hope the dress i want looks great in person!

    I saw these dresses:

    The first is alright but the print on the second one is really bad, imo. I'm not a fan of smocked dresses in general, though. I always think they make your boobs look weird. :unsure:

    I love the concept of this. The simply piled everything blue they could find together and called it a campaign. Very clever. :lol:

    I got some things as well, a dotted shirt with puffy sleeves which I can't find a picture of and these two pullovers (the second one is from mens :P)

    i saw the second one as well! but in a darker print? anyhow, smocked dress is the term i was looking for. didnt look worth it to me either. still crossing fingers for the other dresses i liked.

    ^It does come in a darker print as well. I have to say that the fabric feels very nice. I so want the off-white and light pink tunics to look good irl, loved them in the pictures.

    omg i went into h&m last night and the blue campaign is realy inspiring- coming from a girl that never really wears denim- i felt like i was on a sailboat in lake geneva soaking up the spring sun...but then i walked out and walked into rainy and windy london, and realised where i was.
