La Reine Du Tricot: Sonia Rykiel for H&M Giveaway!

Sweet Photobooth action shotz.

I made the mistake fortuitous decision to catch a showing of Shutter Island this weekend. I enjoyed the movie, but the walk from the car to the theatre included passing by the windows of the Atlantic Station H&M. It was past closing time and they were breaking out the displays for the Sonia Rykiel knits collection. And I'm not supposed to be shopping for new clothes until after Easter.

But of course I went anyway the next morning because I was dying for a giant rhinestone pin. And  I wanted to try on everything with stripes. I caved and bought this sweater. It fits like a glove and suited me much better than the yellow combination (which is very very cute in person, btdubs). I just can't wear that range of yellow.

The quality of the knits in general were very satisfying--a sturdy but soft pima cotton in (in real life) saturated colors. The cut of the pieces were feminine and hugged the body in all the right places without being too snug or revealing. The best part was the matching children's wear! I so so wanted to buy some dresses and leggings to hold on to if/when/for when I have children but held back.

And I bought you something too! I'll be giving away this tote (it could soon be ton sac!) and the matching crown pin to one lucky reader! I think the pin would be perf on a blazer, repurposed as a barrette, or on your tote bag to let people know how badass you are! Just leave a comment with your e-mail to enter. I will also add one more entry into the contest if you become a follower of my blog.

I'm closing submissions on Sunday the 28th at 9 PM and will pick a winner next Monday morning!

Good luck, y'all!

ETA 2/28: The contest is now closed! Thanks to everyone to that stopped by and entered!

  9. Gah! I'm so jealous! Lar and I talked about heading over to Atlantic Station to check out the Rykiel line, but I know I wouldn't leave that place without at least spending $150. So I'm trying to show some self-restraint and not drive ANYWHERE near H&M. The sweater looks great on you!
