Choo Madness

Posted on November 23, 2009 | 9:00am

Call me crazy, because yours truly was part of the madness at Jimmy Choo for H&M launch last Saturday.

And talk about exclusivity. H&M decided to only bring the Jimmy Choo collection to three SoCal locations: Beverly Center, West Hollywood and South Coast Plaza. You don’t need to be an econ major to figure out it’d cause major chaos!

I woke up early and got there at 7:30 a.m. to join the fun. After hours of waiting, playing with by Blackberry, stating longingly at the entrance door, more waiting, getting lucky in not getting shoved, and yet more waiting just to pay; I emerged tired by happy seven hours later.

(We were only given 10 minutes to grab shoes/accessories!)

Anyone else go?
