    Re: H&M in Orange County

    I used to shop at the giant one in Union Square a few times a month. Last time I was in there it was pretty Old Navy-ish. Disposable is definately a good way to describe the quality.

    Why are we dissing Old Navy? I have clothes from Old Navy that I've had for years and are in still great condition.

    I used to hate Old Navy but now I love them. I have to admit though, this year's batch of tank tops are cheaper quality than last year's. The material is much thinner.

    It's not really a diss, more of an observation in the level of fashion and merchandising of H&M that I have observed over the past year. I work for a major retailer and can safely say I own several pieces of Old Navy as well many other stores I don't work for...LOL! H&M has marketed themselves an affordable, yet very fashion forward place to shop, where as Old Navy is much more about doing the basic silhouettes. Also, disposable isn't a negative in women's RTW. Women like shopping for the season's current trends and adding that perfect piece to an existing wardrobe. In my experience, most men like durable, classic fashion that they can wear for years.

    Re: H&M in Orange County

    Fishbulb and I went crazy in the H&M at South Coast (Macy Home Store Wing). Crowds weren't bad and the store is huge.

    I've loved H&M since I discovered it in London a few years ago. They are all over Europe and the style is fantastic. However, I do agree that the quality is a bit hit and miss.

    Because most men hate clothes shopping!

    Re: H&M in Orange County

    It's definitely on my list of places to check out, but I'll wait a few weeks. You get what you pay for, for sure, but it is fun to go buy a few cute trendy, hence "disposable", items.

    See, I saw the one that is in the main side of the Mall - didn't know there was one on the Crystal Court side - interesting. Course, it's not that interesting since there are 3 Macy's stores over there...

    I'll have to eventually check both out.

    Yeah Target! I just bought two tee shirts there on Friday for $10 each! One of Lucille Ball and the other of Audrey Hepburn.

    How big are the stores usually? I've never been but I'm wondering if they're department store huge. Also, I heard they're going to have a Sims Fun Stuff Pack of H&M stuff. I don't really know which H&M store is closest to me, sounds like Pasadena would be but I really don't want to drive out there just to go to that store and be disappointed.

    Yes, if only. If they are really huge as Dusty says, they should put one in Victoria Gardens in one of the Macy's. (Really hate how they have TWO of those here now that Robinson's May is long gone. )

    Nah, it's just one big Macy's Home store. Furniture and whatnot. That side of the mall is supposed to be more of the home shopping and the other side is more about the clothes. That was the plan, anyway, when I used to work on that side.

    I've seen those shirts. I am currently in love with the Mossimo jeans and tanks at the moment. I've turned into a mean layering machine as a result.

    Oh I know. Yes, there is 3 Macy's total at South Coast Plaza. Crystal Court side has the Home Store and then the main side has the Macy's store and then Macy's Mens Store. That's what I was getting at.

    Sorry if I mislead you.

    Ohhh, got it. "Over there" meaning all of South Coast Plaza, not "over there" meaning the "other side". I'm with ya. It's technically not even called Crystal Court anymore, it's just all South Coast Plaza now.

    But we all still call it Crystal Court anyway.

    I don't understand what the big deal is about that anyway. You know, they have Carousel Court out there by Nathan Allen Jewelers....and Jacadi....so why not refer to the other side as South Coast Plaza Crystal Court..not sure why the big removal of that name.....but whatever.
