    1. pieces I would like to get: black day to night dress (half and half), brown high boots and black low boots. I also would like the candy wrapper bag and maybe the smaller black bag. For the other pieces, I would rather try them on first before deciding. I love the duvet coat and the jeans, but I’m nog sure whether they would fit me as I’m rather small. If I could, I would buy it all 🙂

    2. Why should you pick me? Because I’ve been to all designer collaborations (except for the Karl Lagerfeld one) and I’m almost always queing at the door at 5 AM in the morning by myself (cue sad music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSHzDJ6sw4s ). I finally have a half decent budget to shop (which is necessary because the prices of the pieces are not cheap – 399 € for the leather pants – Say what?!). I would love to be able to shop with the offered discount.

    What can I also say to convince you? I’m a really good shopping buddy. I say what I think and you won’t go home with buyer’s remorse (but most likely with too many things, as most of my friends who shop with me buy too much – maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned that :-)).

    I’m not someone who wins contests, so it would be super to win this one, which is very important to me and would mean the world to me!

    I’m madly head-over-heels in love with the black ankle boots. I’m willing to fight the battle of conquering them along with al my fellow other que’ers because I just HAVE TO HAVE THEM whatever it takes!! 🙂

    The answer to the question why you should pick me is not an easy one I must admit. I’m not really that special but I consider myself being a nice person 🙂
    I’m a young interior and furniture designers with a small shopping addiction. I love to share my view on the world of design on my blog, so we’re blogger-colleagues! I wouldn’t dare to call myself fashionable but I like beautiful clothes and I love Belgian designers. I’m extremely happy with this collab because Belgian designers are the best and the world should know it!

    I’m head over heels with this collection and it’ll actually be the first H&M designer collaboration that I’m attending! I love the navy, oversized turtleneck and blond hair lock necklace, I might also get the leather waist belt 🙂

    I think it’s amazing that the pieces are rather extraordinary but most of all, I like that the pieces are redesigned Margiela classics! I think I’ll be a great shopping buddy because I really love this collection and I write for a blog as well so we’ll surely have some interests in common! I would be really happy if I won this contest and I would also like to meet you, you have a very lovely blog 🙂

    Ik twijfelde tussen communicatiemanagement en TEW, maar heb uiteindelijk toch voor TEW gekozen. Heb binnen een kleine maand examen, ben eens benieuwd hoe ik het er vanaf ga brengen!
    En ja was een beetje ziek, maar het is ondertussen al veel beter!

    Ik zou zo graag de enkellaarsjes willen, de cookie clutch en de ketting met het haarlokje. Of misschien ga ik wel voor de sequined legging.. Ik zou graag alles wel eerst eens in het echt willen zien voor ik het koop en ik denk dat ik helemaal flip door alle stress en te weinig tijd als ik moet aanschuiven. Reden 1 dus waarom ik mee moet met jou 😉
    Reden 2 is: dit is de eerste collab die ik echt leuk vind maar ik zal er waarschijnlijk niet geraken omdat ik stage heb die dag 🙁

    Soooo take me with you pretty pleaaaaseee *puppy-eyes*

  6. November 10, 2012 / 10:04 pm

    Oh my Gooood ik heb echt kriebels van jouw filmpje te zien: niet aanschuiven, rustig passen en sowieso alle items van mijn wishlist mee naar huis?!!

    De MMM items die ik zou willen (en die je al hebt gezien op mijn blog):
    – het witte hemdje
    – de oversized zwarte broek
    – de candy clutch
    – de horlogeriem
    (- de schoenen met doorzichtige hiel maar de prijs….)

    Waarom je mij moet meenemen? Ik ben een heel kalme shopper die er stiekem van droomt stylist te worden en dus sowieso supergraag gaat winkelen, of het nu voor mezelf is of voor iemand anders. Ik weet zeker dat je helemaal geen hulp nodig hebt qua kledingkeuze, dus zie mij eerder als een leuke vriendin die je aanmoedigt bij het kopen van gewaagde stukken!

    En ik sta ook niet graag vroeg op, dan zou ik de wekker die ik nu al heb gezet voor donderdag toch wat kunnen verlaten ;).

    Pick me Pick me Pick me !! 🙂

    Well, If I had money I’d probably buy everything. Especially crazy about the shoes. I’ve been dreaming about clear Margiela wedges for years. Also love the oversized sweater, red & black dresses. Horloge armband en riem zijn mijn favorieten bij accessoires!

    The reason you should pick me… Well, I’m a real margiela fan, I’ve been a fan for many years now. I even made an essay and an art book about MMM in college. Martin Margiela was is a genious, everything he created was equally smart and very innovative for his time. One of my most priced and beloved possessions is a Margiela dress from the 90’s. I just love how challenging his work is!
    I’d love to go and experience this collection with you. I also hate waiting in line and haven’t done it in years. It really puts me off. The waiting, the pushing, … I’ll be on my best behaviour 😀 I’d really, really love to win this one <3 Every finger crossed!

    Also, that video was quite hilarious, I laughed several times! And well edited as well. Good job! I don't know if I'll ever do a video for the blog, I'm so akward on tape.

    Maison Martin Margiela, needless to say that his collection definitely is worth waiting for. When they announced the collaboration between Margiela and H&M, I was determined to buy a Quechua tent and a couple gallons of coffee to survive that one chaotic morning. Buuut.. there’s always this other option: going to the exclusive event, with you! I’d love to, of course 🙂

    If I could, I would definitely buy (almost) everything, but students don’t have trees with money growing on them. I eventually went for:
    – trompe l’oeil tattoo top: great details
    – mirrored leggings: seems comfy ànd chic
    – white shirt: I’ve been looking for ages for a decent white shirt that has something special, this one looks perfect to me
    (and the black heels, but €200,- is a bit too much for me, I think..)

    Why pick me? To be perfectly honest: I don’t know, I’m not good at promoting myself. Every single one of your readers is worth taking with you, the night will definitely be amazing! I’ve always had a great interest in fashion. I’ve followed all the collaborations with other designers, but I never got the chance to buy a piece (due to money issues, no transport, too young to go). I’m thinking about starting my own blog about fashion, lifestyle, etc. Meeting other bloggers who know how to roll in the Belgian blogging business would be kinda great, getting some tips & tricks, meeting people. Because: I don’t know where to start. A career in fashion seems to be the only option for me, even though my parents think I’m still dreaming. But there’s nothing I want more 🙂 And of course, Margiela. Born in Genk (where I live), one of the most inspiring Belgian designers. It would be an honor to be able to shop his collection while having the time to actually look at it and try it on, than to just rush through the store in 10 minutes, trying to figure out what you’re gonna buy and avoiding some bitch fight. Fashion is something you should enjoy, not rush.

    Good luck picking the right girl/guy to join you tomorrow evening!

    Don’t beat yourselves up about the second question you guys! Since I’m always the one putting my thoughts out there I was curious to know a little more about the people who pass by this page. It shouldn’t feel like self promotion, just talk to me about you and your passion for fashion as if you were talking to a friend 😉

    Anyway, good luck everyone! The winner will receive a little email after 20h explaining the details. I can’t wait ! xo
