'Imitate The Action Of The Tiger'


My usual lunchtime wanderings led me quite randomly into H&M where there on the rack was this awesome shirt dress on sale for $20! Much to my happiness since the equivalent (below) I was eyeing from T by Alexander Wang is holding steady at $210.

Well, I decided to forgo my usual cupcake-a-day for a week and buy the dress!  And, might I add, it's a pretty good imitation!

What I'm Wearing:

  10. you are amazing but also amazingly lucky girl! :D
    I'd also say that the h&m version looks much more comfortable and easy to wear everyday.. a.wang one is too long imo.

    love the background of your photos btw.. ;)

  11. Am I daring to much if I say that I like your H&M imitation better than the original??
    And this time I can also say that I have that YSL arty ring:-))
    Still no luck with the previous one though!

  41. I adore this whole look and your Diego is divine. I can't wear my Rocco over my shoulder.. maybe if I really tried but I also have semi broad shoulders. If you get one in though, it'll probably have the longer shoulder strap as well right?
