    H&M South Africa

    October 21, 2015

    Can I get a woo hoo and yeea-haa!?

    H&M is finally open in South Africa, and in case you live under a rock, the very first local store opened it’s doors last weekend in Cape Town at the V&A Waterfront.

    But don’t worry Jozi, H&M has already secured it’s spot at Sandon City (next to Accessorize on the upper level) and it will be open next month on the 7th November. Further stores are planned in the Autumn of 2016 at Alberton’s Mall of the South, Clearwater Mall and the Mall of Africa.

    I always used to get my H&M fix when I went to Greece to visit the familia, but sadly, I haven’t been to Greece in years (well two years actually) so I’ve really missed my little H&M annual splurge. But hey, good things come to those who wait, and now I can splurge all the friggin time as H&M will be right at my door – well almost, (it’s closer than Greece!)

    Price wise, I must say that I am impressed!

    I had a quick browse around the local South African website (YAY for that alone) and I am happy to say that H&M South Africa’s prices are spot on!

    You can pick up cute summer dresses for around R300, shorts around R250, bags for R350 and a bunch of awesome accessories ranging from R50 – R349.

    I like that H&M has really affordable, trendy stuff, but I really love that they also offer Premium Quality items, for those that want real leather, silk and wool items – and even then, their premium stuff is affordable – R899 for real leather shoes, R1200 for a full on suede skirt, or R749 for a pure wool cardigan.

    I can’t wait to shop at the Jozi store and I’ll be sure to tell you guys all about it.

    In the meantime, check out what’s on my lust list from H&M South Africa with local prices and links to the items to check out more.
