H&M opening new stores in St. Petersburg, Tampa

Is it warm in here? 

Must be the HOT news I have to share with you. You may have missed it, but our colleague Mark Albright this week broke the news that H&M, which made its splash in the Tampa Bay area just a few months ago, is expanding already. 

The low-price yet fashionable store, and rival of the similar Forever 21, is bringing a store to Tyrone Square Mall in St. Petersburg AND to WestShore Plaza in Tampa.

Can I get an Amen? Both new locations are slated to open this fall.

Plus, in case you haven't heard, H&M (like Target and JCPenney and Sears and just about every other major retailer these days) has long boosted its brand by having celebrities and designers lend their names to custom collections. 

The latest to jump in is star athlete David Beckham, husband to the posh Victoria, father of four and a seemingly all around nice guy. (Hey, I'm trying to be objective here).

The collection (which debuts today) is called David Beckham Bodywear, which fits right in with his persona as a serious piece of eye candy. I mean, look at those ... tattoos ;-)

But really, once you get done watching the alluring commercial, you'll find a whole line of basics that would look good in any guy's wardrobe.

I don't shop for my boyfriend except for gifts/special occasions, so I can't speak with authority on some of the prices, but they don't seem all that bad. The boxer shorts you see in the first pic up top go for $14.95; the PJ pants next to it are $29.95.

This henley shirt is $29.95; the basic white T is $14.95.

What do you think? Excuse me while I go fan myself.
