H&M Grand Opening…Miami style

The new H&M (which I have been patiently awaiting for years) has finally arrived & it’s huge! The pop-up shop on Meridian could only hold me down for so long, but the new two-story venue has made it just in time for the holidays.

There was a red carpet, booze, celebrities, and lots of fashion at the Grand Opening of the new H&M on Lincoln Road Wednesday night and I was one of the lucky ones who got in before the doors officially open today at noon.

NYC DJ, Mia Moretti turned the store into a legit fashion par-tay & Flo Rida even performed later on in the night. Between the jams blaring throughout the store and the super hot male models donned in all white & red bow-ties passing around free drinks, I was one happy shopper.

So let’s get to it. Here’s my Suzie Says review:

Customer Service: The hospitality was out of this world. They might have had their entire staff on deck, but EVERYONE was there to assist and make your shopping experience an absolute pleasure. Big shout out to Cristina in the Menswear fitting room for being amaze & getting me everything I needed!

Sizes:  H&M is known to run a little small so don’t go into a manic depression when you can’t get your size 6 pants to zip up. I should’ve made a note to self prior stepping in to the fitting room, but with all of the excitement I was in a shopaholic daze! But now you guys know, if you’re normally a size 6 you’re most likely going to be a size 8.

Parking: Some people may think Lincoln Road can be tricky for parking, but I’m pleased to announce that there’s a parking garage DIRECTLY behind the store! $1 an hour, you can’t beat that ;)

H&M POP UP SHOP GRAND OPENING ON LINCOLN ROAD.

Miami fashionistas get ready for your newest shopping addiction! After years of the rumors, waiting, whining, & having to travel elsewhere to get your shop on at H&M, it’s finally opened up at home!

The real H&M replacing the old Lincoln Theater is still under massive construction, but the lovely people at H&M love Miami so much they decided to open up shop on the corner of Lincoln & Meridian for the meantime. I mean, it’s the least they could do! How Miami was chosen as the sixth city for an H&M in Florida is beyond me but I’m over that now because it’s finally here! Now let’s get to the good stuff!

When I first heard the grand opening was going to be happening early I called up the troops -you know, my girlfriends. Thankfully, my good friend Zunia was down for the adventure. We woke up Friday morning & headed out in the rain. Nothing was going to stop us! I figured we were at an advantage since most people work on Fridays & the rain would keep the weak ones away LOL.

Once we arrived (at 10am) I was in shock. Was no one really as crazy as me?! There were only 3 girls in line! We decided to hide from the rain for a bit while we plotted what we would be buying. Once 11am rolled around our hearts couldn’t take it. We went to stand in line & slowly but surely the crowds began to hover. The press was there, photographers galore, fashion bloggers, men, women, and even a few little kids were in line. Chad Ochocinco & Evelyn Lozada even got their shop on today; they didn’t have to wait in line though, obvs.

There was music, a pep squad, & even a countdown. Finally, we were let in! To my surprise everyone acted pretty civilized. I was having Black Friday flashbacks but everyone was great! I managed to grab a few (who am I kidding?), a ton of cute stuff & was ready to try them on until I realized it would take me at least an hour to get to the front of the fitting room line. I decided, what the heck? & got it all anyways. The employees made sure everyone knew returns & exchanges could be made up to 30 days from the purchase date which was great & saved us a lot of time. The store only has 3 tiny fitting rooms which was probably the biggest issue.

The temporary location is no where near the size of your typical H&M but it did the trick for now. It’s stocked with tons of bathing suits (all starting at $4.95), lots of beach cover-ups, maxi’s, shorts, tops & more all for great prices. I was surprised to find that the most expensive item I bought was my $34.95 wedges (which I’m completely in love with). I’m not sure if all H&M’s are offering these items but this store definitely has Miami written all over it!

When I first discovered H&M a few years ago on a trip to NYC I fell in love. Forever 21 who? The massive 3-story structure with all the possibilities of clothing & accessories that no one in else in Miami would own was just too much for my little heart to handle. I was in heaven.

Later, H&M upgraded their style by offering exclusive designer collections which over the years has included Roberto Cavalli, Jimmy Choo, and most recently Versace making it possible for regular (but fabulous) people to own real designer clothing.

And finally, about a year ago the opened up the fabulous world of online shopping for North America –such a simple concept yet they kept it from us for so long.

For my Miamians, starting this year (if the world doesn’t end of course) you will finally have an H&M of your very own on Lincoln Road!

And here’s just another reason to love H&M..

The 9.99 briefs of course :P

The David Beckham bodywear collection for H&M will soon be available in stores! Get some for yo man!
