10 Items You’ll Immediately Regret Buying From H&M’s New Online Shop

hm-impulse-buys

It’s true fellow fashionistos and fast-fashion gays, H&M has opened up their first online store stateside. H&M started selling cheap-chic clothes online in its native Sweden 15 years ago, but in America we’ve had to endure the piles of clothes, none of which have the one thing we came in there for; the incredibly long lines for the register and the fitting room; and the occasional side-eyes from people as you raid the women’s section. Hey, it’s all unisexy in the end.

Well, rejoice! because from now on you can shop to your heart’s content right from the comfort of your own bed — also known as a recipe for disaster. With clothes running cheaper than Thai food delivery and the advent of H&M’s new home line, sold exclusively through the website, you’ll be one shopping spree away from an episode of Hoarders.

Impulse, be damned! Here are 10 things you may covet today, but will regret tomorrow.

Purple Leopard Print Duvet Cover Set

In case your new bedroom design concept is a “place good taste goes to die.”

Floral Skull Shortie Robe

bathrobe

We didn’t know Ed Hardy was making kimonos now.

Jersey Biker Jacket

Perfect for that quarter-life crisis you’re apparently having.

Sequined Cushion Cover

Settle down for a quick disco nap and wake up looking like you just crawled out from an all-nighter at 54 with Liza and Halston.

Candle Holder

It’s all well and good until someone mistakes it for a bong.

Cat Ear Backpack

You haz catpack.

Decorative LOVE Letters

Where are the decorative SHADE letters?

Skull Tea Light Holder

Because nothing says “Welcome to my lovely home” like a flaming skull on the table.

Orange Wool Coat

Because every gay goes through a Prime of Miss Jean Brodie phase.

Zebra Print Ceramic Jar

You really can’t/shouldn’t use this to store anything but cocaine.

      I like the skull tea light + the zebra holder. The sequin pillow, too, if I’m being honest. I really do enjoy shopping H + M, but don’t live very close to one anymore. So glad they finally got their shirt (har har) together + opened an online store. I will agree that a lot of these listed items look really cheap. One of the good things about shopping in-store for a retailer like this is that you have a closer look. So, you can pick only those items that don’t look as cheap.

      Oh, whatever. Shut up + take my money, H + M!

      obviously the writer doesn’t read the NY times which recently ran a fashion feature on how “dapper” is returning to men’s fashion…that orange coat is FIERCE.

      Much of the writing on this site is down right Vapid. But this takes the cake. Trite, bitch, catty is not a review. It’s just a queen on a tear.

      The cat ear back pack is kind of cool. I’ve just never shopped there for one reason or another. I like Forever21 better.

      @SFRussell1963: Yes, I agree wholeheartedly. It’s just someone’s opinion, like most writing is. But on this one he seems way off. Most of the stuff on this page would look pretty cool on the right person or in the right setting. And I’m lovin’ that jacket and cat ear back pack

      I don’t like shopping there because it’s quickly becoming one of those places “Everyone” shops. And we as gay men want to spared the embarrassing moment of showing up to a party with a lovely new blouse AND SEEING TWO OTHER PEOPLE WEARING IT… SCANDAL GIRLS.. SCANDAL!!!
