Has anyone in Hong Kong been to H&M lately?

A really charming dress out of a fairly rigid sweatshirt-like fabric - lots of volume on the bottom - this  will look like a million bucks with plain pointy Jimmy Choos and a few big modern bracelets.

A sweatshirt with quilted sleeves and checked voile shirt that puts Isabel Marant to shame at around HKD $400.

I went today with a friend who has a 9-month old baby to look for super cute mini outfits. H&M Hong Kong is in Novosibirsk nowadays, well actually it was always there, but you didn't have to go so far because there was also a giant shop on Queen's Road Central. The latter premises have been taken over by Zara, however, and although rumors of imminent stores on Hong Kong island are rampant, the closest shop to the Peak is on Canton Road in Tsim Tsa Tsui (alright so Novosibirsk was a bit of an exaggeration, it's actually in Kowloon, the bit across the harbor that belongs to Hong Kong but which is basically the southern most tip of mainland China).

Finally getting to the point, I would like to say we had a brilliant visit. Everything is dirt cheap as ever (and don't even start about sweat shops - the Swedish are possibly the most moral and honest people on the planet - if there was ever accidentally a sweat shop involved it would have been rectified instantly) and I bought a few things I am absolutely thrilled about. The baby clothes were gorgeous and the new (well at least new to me) work-out wear is pretty and practical, at a fraction of the price of the Lulus and Nikes of the world.
