'The [Dress] Is Come Full Circle'


Towards the beginning of the Spring, those of you who follow me on Twitter probably heard my rant towards H&M for not stocking more of this dress (seen here in the second photo) in their stores. I walked a total of 30 blocks and visited 4 H&M's on a lunch hour to try and find it but to no avail. Turns out, I'm glad I didn't. This dress is infinitely better! The material is better, the length is better, the pleats are awesome as is the lighter neon color so that next year, I'll still wear it once the neon craze has died down (I sincerely hope it doesn't though).
The top of the dress is really sheer so I added this neon pink slip beneath! I'll change it up with a white one or on those daring hot days, will just let a pretty floral bra peak out from beneath.










What I'm Wearing:
Dress: H&M
H&M Neon Shoes
Free People Neon Slip
Watch: Coach
Armery: Julie Nolan Astrological Cuff, Bali Name Cuff
Rings: A Peace Treaty, YSL
Collar Necklace: Asos
Sunspecs: RayBan
Lips: Mac Quick SizzlePin It

  37. WOW you really wanted that dress and 4 H&M locations? I am impressed. In Chicago we have only 2. They're about 10 blocks away from each other, and the merchandise is usually different. Some items do overlap but the best items come from Michigan Ave.

  40. It's a great idea to wear that neon pink top underneath the dress, it looks really good !

    ReplyDelete
  41. Forgot to say, about the HM top i was wearing, i got it a few weeks ago in my local store and it was the last one on the corner, so i guess it might either be too popular to be sold out or just one left from last season :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oooh, lovely dress! I love the pleats in it :)
    Nice pop of pink underneath too.
