Versace for H&M is the key to Canada's hatred of Toronto!

Did you hear about the poll released yesterday that suggests that Canada dislikes Toronto - and that it is in fact the least-liked city in all of the country? Funnily enough, most of the negative feelings came from provinces west of Ontario. The social pundits can float all the theories they want on the subject but I've figured out the crux of the issue - it all comes down to Versace for H&M and that 3 of the 5 stores that going to have the line next Saturday are right here in Toronto - having seen the collection in person this week, all I can say is I don't blame you for hating us for that!

If the brash Versace of the late 80's is the one you loved with its bright colours and crazy prints then are you in for a treat! I have never been tempted to line up for one of these H&M special designer deals before but I have to say, this line is so amazing and incredibly affordable you just might find me in line with you come the big day!

Which pieces do I have my eye on? Here's a few I'm loving:

Pink studded silk dress - $199, Leather necklace - $59.99, Black studded bag - $149

Black silk dress - $179, Black suede boots - $179, Black studded bag - $149
Black silk dress - $179, Necklace - $59.95, Black studded bag - $149
Yellow studded silk dress - $199, Bracelets - $34.95, Bag - $199
Now these aren't actually clothes I long for but they are just so quintessentially Versace and pretty to look at!
Print sequin dress - $149, Necklace - $59.95
Print silk bustier - $149, Print trousers - $79.95, Pink leather shoes - $149
There is also a men's line and I was relieved to find out that there is a suit for my husband to match my new pink dress!
Pink blazer - $179, Pink pants - $69.95, Pink shirt - $59.95, Pink leather shoes - $129
The launch date of the 43 piece collection is Saturday, November 19th and will be in store at the Pacific Centre in Vancouver, Downtown Montreal. In Toronto, you will find it at The Toronto Eaton Centre, Bloor Street West and Yorkdale Mall. These 3 stores will open at 8am and be issuing coloured wrist bands to people in the lineup that will allow them 10 minutes to shop in the store and to purchase 2 items of each style. 

If you aren't one of the lucky ones in a city that will stock it in-store, I understand that the collection will also be offered online - it should be interesting to see how fast it will all disappear!
Will anyone be joining me in line? I'll bring the snacks!
