My Retail Wish List

You guys. I am so FREAKING excited. There is going to be…..drumroll please….an H&M in Oklahoma City!

*cue the Beatle-mania-decibel-shattering screams*

Oh yeah! According to OKC Talk (which I hear is pretty credible) there are going to be awesome shops popping up all over the Memorial Road area! Obviously, I’m most excited about the H&M (my sister and I frequented that store whilst in London and Liverpool).

However, they’re also planning on building some other things I’m not too jazzed about. Like yet another outdoor store. I’m sorry, after getting Academy, Dick’s, AND Bass Pro, I think we’re set. But I digress. I really wish I was on these planning committees. If I was, we’d have some AWESOME stores that every other major city in America seems to have except OKC. Such as:

 

IKEA

Behold, the gloriousness.

Behold, the gloriousness.

I. LOVE. IKEA. Not only do they have cute knick knacks and decor, they’ve also got DELICIOUS Swedish meatballs (seriously, have you ever tried those things? AMAZE-BALLS. Literally.) As of now, we have to drive aaaallllll the way to Dallas just to get something to fill our bright yellow and blue bags. Not cool, IKEA. Not cool.

 

Top Shop

So posh!

So posh!

Honestly, I’ve never even set foot in a Top Shop. They’re all the rage in London (and you know how I love my Brits) and Kate Middleton shops there ALL the time. I mostly want a Top Shop here in OKC so I can walk around and be all: “Look at all the things I can’t afford but if I could, I’d totes be twinkies with Kate!” (Honestly, if Kate met me, I really think we’d be instant BFFs. Seriously. Plus, our kids are the same age and equally adorable–although I’d give a slight edge to Hermione. I’m bias that way.)

 

Marks and Spencer

Delightfully British.

Delightfully British.

This is yet another British import. This place is magnificent. Its basically a high-end, nicer WalMart. I know what you’re thinking: “But Jess, isn’t Target our ‘high-end WalMart’?” And to that I say, “You ain’t seen nothing yet.” You know how you can wear pajama pants to WalMart but not to Target? You want to wear at least jeans, a cute top, and throw on some mascara, right? At Marks and Spencer, be prepared to actually shower and shave your legs. Oh yeah, its THAT nice.

 

What would you like to see in OKC? (Besides the Dairy Queen that’s coming soon!)

  1. I would love to see an Ikea in OKC. I’m sick of only being able to buy what I can fit in my car when I go to Dallas. Plus I’d love to have one of those nifty Ikea kitchens one day.
