Sneak Peek | H&M Spring/Summer Collection 2013

Yesterday I and a couple of blogger friends attended the H&M Spring Summer 2013 Preview in their showroom in Sofia. I believe most of you who follow me on Twitter and Instagram already saw some pictures from the event. All in all, it was a very pleasant evening and I had the chance to reconnect with a lot of people. I must say I was very impressed with the actual collection - basic colors, very chic and with a bit of an edgy feel. I definitely can't wait until March 2013 when the new collection will hit the stores! I do apologize for the crappy quality, but unfortunately, I did not bring my camera and had to use my phone. I still hope you will enjoy the post! 

Вчера имах удоволствието да посетя showroom-а на H&M и да разгледам предстоящата Spring Summer 2013 колекция на марката. Бях в компанията на добри приятели блогъри и определено беше едно приятно изживяване. Тези от вас, които ме следват в Twitter и Instagram, предполагам вече са разгледали част от снимките. Трябва да кажа едно "извинете" за качеството на снимките, но за жалост фотоапарата ми не беше в мен и трябваше да импровизирам. Относно самата колекция - наистина останах впечатлена и вече нямам търпение да дойде март месец, когато ще бъде по магазините. Колекцията съчетава в себе си няколко основни цвята и много шик примесен с малко екстравагантност. 

How to | Shop at a Thrift Store in 9 Easy Steps

I've noticed a lot of people are going crazy over thrift store and second-hand shopping. This post is dedicated to all the people who, just like me, have fun looking for hidden gems. I will be sharing some helpful tips and tricks on how to shop in thrift stores. This will be very helpful information for all you who are just now diving into the experience called "second-hand shopping". :)

1. When you are going thrift store shopping always be dressed comfortably so you can easily and quickly try on clothes, if you wish to do so.

2. Choose stores with good reputation. Google stores near you or ask a friend.

3. Always be on the look out - you never know what might catch your eye. Always go through all the sections. I will advice the ladies to go through the men's sections as well because you can always find some really nice shirts and vests - just rock the boyfriend look.

4. Experiment - now is the time to try on different styles, garments, prints, sizes etc.

5. Never buy underwear! My personal opinion is that you should never buy underwear or kitchen accessories from second-hand shops.

6. If you are buying purses always disinfect them before you actually use them.

7. Inspect every single piece of clothing you are buying. Do not buy shirt or blouses with stains on the underarms. If you are buying jeans or pants always inspect the inside for fraying.

8. Use you imagination - you can always transform a piece of clothing into something really nice you would actually wear.

9. Wash every single thing you buy from the thrift store. If possible get your stuff to the dry-cleaners.

Just enjoy this different shopping experience!
I know you are not going to be disappointed and you are going to have fun. Share with me what you got recently from thrift stores. Post pictures on my Facebook page
