H&M Opening and Margiela Collab

So I live in Austin, Texas and we recently got an H&M (November 17th)!
There are a couple in Houston and Dallas but, believe it or not, there has never been one in Austin!

I was so pumped for its opening that I got there at 10 p.m. The store didn't open until noon the next day....that was 14 hours of waiting (and 2 attempted hours of sleeping in 39 degree weather). I thought I would be fine wearing tights underneath my jeans and a fur coat but BOY WAS I WRONG. It was so cold.

Here are some photos I took from my spot in line...
As always, click on the photos to enlarge them

The first people had been waiting since 5:30 p.m.

We got a red carpet! oooh la la

My friend, Juliana, has the hologram circle bag, it's hella cute in person

wooooooo here was the line just on my side of the building (yes, it wrapped all the way around and sorry for the break in the middle my bad)

patiently waiting, survived 39 degree weather

this was to insure that I got a gift card...

Margiela for H&M window!

H&M was being generous and bussing people from the University of Texas campus to the store ALL DAY

LOOK! I got $50 to use on my purchases!
Speaking of purchases, check out what I got down below

Margiela for H&M 'Invisible Belt'

Margiela for H&M 'Candy Clutch'

Margiela for H&M 'Oversized Keychain Necklace'

Margiela for H&M 'Disco Pants' (I love these leggings so much, they complete me)

If you can't tell, I only went for the Margiela collection which was the reason why I waited outside for so long. I was terrified of things selling out but apparently nobody in Texas knows what Margiela is. Both people on the sides of me in line were confused when I mentioned the line and asked me to explain (I'm sorry what!!) I couldn't understand why people would wait at a store overnight just for the gift card. The first 500 people in line were given scratch offs that ranged from $10 - $500 and the first 100 people, which included me, were given goodie bags with things like a shirt and a toiletry bag. Thanks H&M! :*

Have you ever been to an H&M launch? What did you think about the Margiela collection?? Leave a comment below
