H&M Aventura: 9 Things We Loved On Opening Day (PHOTOS)

We suffered long, long years of drought, and now H&M has gone completely Miami mad.

The trends-driven Swedish retailer, which turned the historic Lincoln Theatre into its first 305 outpost just a month ago, cut the ribbon on a two-level store at Aventura Mall Friday at noon -- 12 hours after giddy shoppers began forming a line that grew to stretch throughout the sprawling mall.

Fortunately, we got a sneak peek, and were delighted to find that, unlike the Miami Beach store, this H&M carries childrens' clothes! And it is all super cute, from shiny silver sneakers for boys to Hello Kitty onesies.

Then, of course, we just had to gravitate toward the Fashion. Below are 9 Miami-ready things we loved at the Aventura H&M, from a clutch that was just $5 to the ultimate in Chewbacca chic.

H&M at Aventura Mall is now open on the upper level near Bloomingdales. Mon-Sat: 10:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sun: 12 noon to 8:00 p.m. (855) 466-7467.
