So I'm going to do a series of (somewhat) short posts that will be showcasing what I've purchased over the past few months. I've picked up a few pieces here and there, and today's post will be dedicated to H&M.
This is just a plain miniskirt in a nice shade of brown. I like the hint of red it has in it. It's nothing special, but at $14.95, I thought it would be a nice addition to my wardrobe, since I don't own any skirts in this colour. This is in a size 4, and as you can see, it's a snug fit without making me look like a large sausage stuffed inside a small casing.
Next up is this beautifully textured clutch with a price point of $24.95 (or $29.95, I can't remember TBH). I love the geometric shapes on the front, with an almost reptilian like texture to it. I also love that the chain and studs are a gunmetal gray, rather than your usual silver. It's quite roomy, large enough to fit all your essentials and perhaps a bit more.
The last item is this white dress at $34.95. 70s inspired pieces are showing up every where this spring, and although I'm not quite ready to hop onto the bell-bottom jeans fad, I think this crochet knit dress is definitely more within my comfort zone. The half sleeves and bottom hem are flared with a beautiful scalloped edge. I'm actually slightly iffy about this piece, as the fit is a bit loose in the torso area (size 2), but I just love the versatility of it. I can already imagine wearing it as a beach cover up during the day, then adding a slip underneath to make it more appropriate for dinner somewhere along Lakeshore Blvd. What do you guys think? Keep or return?
