Can you believe I scored all three of these for under $75?! Yep, $75 TOTAL!
I have a love/hate relationship with H & M. It's kind of like Forever 21. Sometimes you go in there & they won't let you in the dressing room with all the amazing finds you got, other times it's just a bunch of cheap crap, you can scrounge for hours & won't find anything special. This trip however was epic. I'm dying to go back again when I don't have the girls with me so I can really dig...although that might be dangerous, the Spring 2012 line is really phenomenal. I'm completely & utterly impressed.
Here are a few of the ways I plan on wearing these looks...
This the one that pulled me into H & M last week. The beautiful, juicy orange on such a sweet shape is so fantastic. It's has a light lovely chiffon feel but with a pair of flats I think it's perfect for a Spring weekend. Or maybe those indigo suede pumps for a date night?
Dress, H&M $24.95
Necklace, Madewell last season
Flats, Gap City Flat from last fall
Heels, Steve Madden suede pump circa 2005
I mentioned this dress on my Twitter & asked if it was 'Fab' or 'Fail' for Sarah's 30th bday party. I'd say 9 out of 10 of you appreciated what a knock-out find this dress is. One of the big trends this Spring is metallic & since this dress is completely covered in sparkly sequins I think it fits the bill. I'm picturing liquid liner, a stained berry lip & a messy sock bun right on top of your head...
H&M Sequin Shift, $19.95
Platforms, Via Spiga from last fall at Nordstrom
I was instantly drawn to this dress & then just as quickly put it down because of my heartfelt aversion to light blue denim. But then I said, this is really really cute. And kind of funky vintage. Maybe I could make an exception...& now I'm so glad I did! I think with my quirky hiking boots that have a red zipper up the backs, my hipster glasses, a clunky gold watch & a classic big girl bag to even it out this look will be one I pull over & over this Spring. Very Quinn Fabray if you ask me.
Dress, H&M, $29.95
Glasses, Eyefunc via My Eye Doctor
Rose Gold Watch, Marc Jacobs 'Henry' watch, from last year but this season's is pretty darn cute too
Bag, Louis Vuitton 'Tivoli'
I found all of my dresses at the Columbia Mall store but I think they're all a part of the new Spring line so hopefully you can find them at a H&M near you. i would've linked to each individual dress but H&M's website is down. Booo.
