hasbeens for H&M

by jennine on April 20, 2011

Thank you all so much for your entries for the Hasbeens for H&M giveaway… there were so many creative entries. Jokes, poems, haiku, sonnets… great collages on Polyvore, the whole nine yards. If you have a chance to go through the comments, please do, there were so many great ones! So without much further ado, the winner happened to be from Clare Tea, who wrote a short story about the first days of spring and getting new shoes…


Clare Tea

Once upon a time, there was a young girl with a rather unfashionable dilemma. Spring had finally sprung in her little hometown, and the sunlight dancing on her doorstep beckoned to her with its promise of balmy spring weather. With a cry of delight, she threw open her closet, shoving aside the wool sweaters to bring the long-buried navy blue and white striped sailor dress to light with a flourish. As she pulled on a matching red cardigan, the sound of her happy humming filled the sunny bedroom. At last, with one last adjustment to her sailor hair bow and anchor necklace, her outfit was complete. But wait, there was more! Down the stairs she ran, her lace-top white socks sliding on the steps as she reached the shoe cupboard. Alas… she had no size 7.5 red, strappy shoes to match her lovingly prepared outfit; no pair of shoes dared to step up to the plate for the latest fashion trends.


“Pick me, pick me!”, cried the winter boots in the corner. With a sigh, she mumbled “no, my loves-and-doves, the time for you has long gone”. With one last caress of their fur-lined comfort, she placed them in the back, brow furrowed about where she would find the perfect spring/summer shoes. If only there was some way to obtain them, some magical method that would grant her a beautiful pair of sandals that would not disappear like Cinderella’s at the end of their night out…


Congratulations Clare!
