I woke up at 4:30 am last Saturday to go shop the Versace for H&M collection. I was lucky; a new store opened last week about an hour away from me. I called the store on Friday & they suggested to arrive before 6am if I wanted to be at the front of the line.

I arrived around 5:45 am and there were 50 people in line. The employees came out around 7:30 to hand out the bracelets. There were groups of 20 allowed to shop the women’s collection and I was in the 2nd group.

I had my eye on 3 dresses & I was able to snag them all. When I tried them on, I was so disappointed to find the straps on the adorable black dress sewn horribly wrong and there was no way I could wear it. When I handed it back to the employee she said someone would still buy it – unfortunately she’s was probably right and it’s most likely on Ebay.

Overall the experience wasn’t nearly as crazy as other cities and was worth the trip. I wanted to share the pieces I purchased but instead of just doing my usual blogger-esquey shots, my friend & wonderful photographer Scott Braun took these beautiful photos!

I had to get this asymmetric dress; worn with Brian Atwood Follow Me pumps:
Ashley Spiker Versace h&M Scott Braun

Printed pink heart dress with fringe; worn with Christian Louboutin Gazolina boots

I had to pick up a litte something for Mr.ShoeRazzi; worn with Hunt spiked loafers

Did anyone else brave the crowds or manage to snag anything from the online store? Also, check out more of Scott’s work

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday and a great beginning into 2011. I spent Christmas hanging out in the perfect place; Las Vegas! All of my dreams came true when my boyfriend & I decided to go shoe shopping and found out it was the first day for the 60% sale. We invited our friend and amazing photographer Doug Hac to Vegas to hang out, catch up and take some pictures.

I wasn’t originally planning on getting the Christian Louboutin Gazolina boots but once I put them on, me & the bf Markus couldn’t resist. Actually Markus might have been pushing for them more; they are incredibly sexy! I also picked up the Louboutin Jem’s and beautiful Nicholas Kirkwood pumps. Markus got the Hunt Lil Wayne spiked leather loafers from Gregory’s.
