Are You Ready for the Versace for H&M Sale?

Versace for H&M goes on sale tomorrow (Nov. 19) at select stores in New York City (the flagship store on 51st and Fifth Avenue will open an hour early at 8 a.m.).  Are you ready?

Even though Everything She Wants wasn't invited to the star-studded launch party where Prince performed, H&M is still my favorite store.  I won't be around to capture the early morning madness at the Versace for H&M sale, but in case you plan to to brave the crowd, here are a few helpful tips from Racked.com:

1) Get there early: H&M's shopping system makes it especially crucial to beat the rush, since the stores are giving special access to the first 280 women in line.  For last year's Lanvin collab, an hour before the Fifth Avenue flagship store opened, there were already around 250 people waiting.  So show up at least 90 minutes in advance.

To get early access, you'll need a color-coded bracelet. H&M staffers will hand out bracelets in 15 different colors, with each color corresponding to a time slot.  Wen your time is called, you'll get 15 minutes to shop. That means for at least the first three-and-a-half hours, only shoppers with bracelets will be allowed in the women's section.

2) Know what you want: Shoppers are only allowed to purchase two pieces per product.

3) Pick your store carefully: Besides the flagship store on 51st and Fifth Avenue, other New York City H&M stores carrying the collection include: 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue, Lexington Avenue at 59th Street, Seventh Avenue at 34th Street, Fifth Avenue at 18th Street, Herald Square, Soho and Lexington Avenue at 86th Street.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store.
