Excitement is reaching a fever pitch now.

There are literally no words to describe how excited I am right now. This is something I heard about way back, and it's been in the back of my mind, but today is officially the day this broke into my fashion consciousness! If you follow fashion news, you will probably know about this already, but I've just gotta share my love..


Killer combination, right? Versace, a huge fashion house with some iconic styles and looks, teaming up with cheap-yet-chic high street cool kid shop H&M - this is possibly the biggest fashion drop of the year. H&M are famous for their high fashion collaborations, and I think this is the biggest & best one so far. It was announced a fair few months ago, so you're probably wondering why it took so long for me to get so crazy-enthusiastic, but the trigger came today in the form of (deep breath) promo pictures!

Now you see why I'm excited! Every item and outfit is distinctly Versace - ranging from loud-and-proud prints to simply gorgeous styles, and every piece is incredible. I wish I could have it all! Of course, these are the promotional pictures, so they are designed to make you want them, but even so they are literally stunning. Finally there is a way for all of us budget fashionistas to get our paws on some Versace without having to take out a mortgage! And while it all looks incredibly current and nails today's trends, these kinds of items are investments that will last a lifetime - let's face it, anything you buy that has Versace on it is a keeper. 

The style concepts are beautifully unique, meaning that any piece you buy will elevate your wardrobe to new fashion heights, and will make you stand out from the crowd. The dresses are so gorgeous that you would literally just have to throw one on with some cute shoes, grab a simple handbag, sling a coat over your arm (it is winter) and go.. could style get any simpler? A killer dress is basically an outfit in itself, and here you've got the chance to snap up several. The separates shown are all in eye-catching prints, nailing the trophy trousers trend that is major right now, while being iconically Versace. And it is not only the clothes that are incredible - if you can tear your eyes away long enough, the accessories are pretty amazing too! Chunky & decadent seems to have been the concept here, and boy does it work! 

Okay, so everything visible in the photos is totally lust-worthy (including the model's hair and makeup - love!), and I currently have my eye on a few pieces.. Alright, alright, I want it all. Now, ingrain this date into your memory.. they hit the stores, and online, on NOVEMBER 17TH. It's officially marked off on my calendar, and I don't care if it's a weekday. I will be on the online store (since there are no shops near me) buying some gorgeous pieces. I'm not sure my college will accept Versace as an excuse to be late, or at least not paying attention, but they are just going to have to. This collaboration is like a fashion dream come true, and seeing the absolutely stunning promo photos has only made me more determined to own a little bit of this legend. Love and kisses, Tara xox
