How I Scored This Sold Out Shirt

When something's hot it's hot. Pink bomber jackets, fishnet ankle socks, anything Gucci; they're all having their moment. And when something sells-out at H&M and sweeps Instagram, but you don't have it in your life, drastic action- or at least karma- is required. We're talking: the big cuffed white shirt. And the randomness with which it came to be in my possession proves that shopping IRL is still basically where it's at. So, there I was scooting round H&M at Oxford Circus last Saturday. I had an appointment to get my hair did at 2.30pm so I couldn't shilly-shally. Pacing the third floor I wasn't really expecting to see owt to inflame my passions, let alone any big-cuffed beauts. But wait! O.M.G. There it was- the very shirt I was after- literally the only one on the rail. I grabbed at it, but was instantly crestfallen when I saw it was a Size 16. I'm all for oversizin', but it would've probably taken #bedsheetchic to hitherto unprecedented levels. So off I trudged when I thought, 'Sod it, maybe I'll try on that floral bomber just in case I heart it loads'. I grabbed said jacket and moved over to a mirror right by a rail of short-sleeved white shirts. Then I glanced at the rail. Could it be? Were the angels singing? One long-sleeved shirt was just slightly poking out from amongst the shorties. And HolyLuckyBitches- it had big cuffs and was a Size 10! Yassss. Wow. Shut The Front Door. And all manner of other less publishable words came tumbling out my mouth. And here is that hottie. Freaking perfect innit? If you've ever scored a sold-out item you'll know my joy. Catch you soon xx

  2. Well done! I love getting a seemingly impossible item! I'm after a blue off the shoulder shirt from H&M (you probably know the one it's been in the H&M ads) which is sold out in my size online and I think it's gonna be the case when I search for it IRL tomorrow. Luckily there are 2 H&Ms in Bristol so I'm hoping that doubles my chances!
