One of the things that all Fashionistas must own in their wardrobe is of course the “Little Black dress”.  There are some of us who are so obsessed with the little black dress and may own more than one.  Coco Chanel created this look close to a century ago.  It was a Chic look. This dress later made it to America when Audrey Hepburn wore it on “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”.

Everyone who loves H&M the store, knows that for the longest time you could not make purchases on their site. You could only view current products. Many of their followers and fans were desperate to be able to buy things online.  Online shopping has been huge for the past decade. I am so shocked and surprised that it even took H&M this long to convert to e-commerce. The Swedish retailers must have had their reasons why they decided to venture out to the online world.
