My beef with them has to do with the time they threw out unsold clothing instead of donating it, and their ultra-low prices on disposable clothing. Today, though, I’m really happy to report some good news about H&M, who appear to be turning over a new leaf in response to the bad PR they got last year.

I can’t say I’m digging those last two jackets, but I really do like the dress and the bag.
