Isabel Marant x H&M…Oh, YES!

June 11, 2013

Hold everything. Isabel Marant is doing a capsule collection for H&M? I think it might be Christmas in June.
I don’t usually share fashion news/collaborations on ye ol’ blog, but when it seems too good to be true I can’t help but share (see the Marni collaborooski). So naturally, when I checked my email this morning and saw that my favorite Frenchy, Isabel Marant, is in the works to create an affordable capsule collection with H&M, my eyes bulged out as I screamed, “Awooooooooga!”
Until this point, I was pretty done-zo with the whole collaboration thing. It was starting to feel like overkill. And beyond that, it’s almost impossible to get your hands on the limited edition collection because they sell out in a split second. But an Isabel Marant collab? Sign this stud-obsessed, french enthusiast, and bohemian afficionado up! 
There’s no news yet regarding what the collection will entail, but do we really need to know? Has Isabel Marant ever disappointed? Obviously I want a preview, but should there fail to be one, I’d still set up a tent and barbecue outside H&M to get ahold of whatever she designs the day it hit stores, which happens to be November 14th.
Are you as excited as I am? Do you want to join forces and set up camp on Fifth Ave? I’ll get the coffee, you bring the bagels.

I’m really not much of an earring person. In high school I wore them all the time, but now I feel like they make me look a little too “done up.”

Most earrings really take glamorous to the next level (like this pair), which is not something I want for everyday. I’ve dabbled in small studs, but none have stuck as everyday wear like my rings and delicate bracelets.

I purchased this pair of gold bar studs a few weeks ago with the hope that they were just edgy enough to add to my permanently-on-my-body collection; and once I put them on my hopes came true. They’re subtle, edgy, and not that noticeable unless you’re really glaring at my ears, which would be weird. I haven’t taken them off since, and am starting to think they opened the door to other subtle earring options…but I’m not going to get ahead of myself just yet.

Hi, my name is Sonia and I’m a Stud-a-holic.

No, not the studs with big muscles that stand outside Abercrombie posing with tourists (blech! I hate muscles), I mean the studs that are fastened on to those jaw dropping Balmain jackets, the studs that Sid Vicious was pretty much born wearing, the studs that I’m tempted to add to every single article of my clothing.

The truth of the matter is, I love studs, and I’ve loved them for a long time. In high school I rarely left the house without a disgusting amount of eyeliner either my black or white studded belt and in college a lot of my jewelry was made up of pyramid studded bracelets and pendents. Today, there isn’t a type of clothing in my closet that isn’t studded. Studded dresses, studded jackets, studded shoes (I just added to this with my recent Converse DIY), studded underwear…just kidding, I don’t have any of that.

If you look around you’d be surprised at how many things have studs: furniture, car interiors, even some dog collars have studs! For the record, I’m not trying to justify my addiction, I’m merely explaining how awesome studs are. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a DIY studded leather jacket to attend to…
