Wear It Five Ways : H&M Lace Dress

I should really rename this series as I often exceed the five looks demanded in the title because I feel that some looks undershoot my own expectations.

I have been cheating on my boyfriend with H&M and it’s a tumultuous love affair partially fueled by all the great items I keep finding on sale racks, like the lace dress in this post. This dress was originally already an affordable $29.95 and four size S went on sale to the sweet tune of $15. I think the XS would have fit better but I love it nonetheless. I just can’t say no to lace.

The S will probably fit up to a size 4 or a small 6. And without further adieu, the six looks (more like five plus one alternate for the obviously lazy first look).

Look 1: Belt (from an Ann Klein suit)
Look 2: Elizabeth + James blazer in size 2, Charles by Charles David Pompadour pumps in size 7
Look 3: Ann Taylor Top in 0p, Rampage Heels in size 7
Look 4: Lipsy Net Skirt in size 6
Look 5: Topshop Moto Jacket in size 6, Jack by BB Dakota Jegging in size 0 (similar here), Dolce Vita Madison pumps in size 7
Look 6: J. Crew Silk Moto jacket in size 0, Jack by BB Dakota Jegging in size 0, Modern Vintage pumps in size 7

Looking at these pictures I noticed that I am missing vibrant colors…wouldn’t this dress look terrific paired with some red items? Like red heels and a red blazer or a thin red belt? Or some emerald green jewelry? I might attempt part II on this dress…we’ll have to see what I can find in my closet.


If you have an IPhone, you are in luck. H&M is offering 20% off a purchase to Facebook and IPhone users. From H&M’s facebook page.

Have you tried to use the newly launched Facebook Check-in Deals at H&M to get 20% off your entire purchase? Valid in all US stores. On touch.facebook.com or the latest version of Facebook for iPhone, touch “Places” and then touch “Check In.” When you touch the H&M location denoted with a yellow icon, you can view the deal and check in to claim it. Then, just show your phone to the cashier to get your 20% discount. Find your nearest store.

Also, I am head over heels in love with these two dresses (can you see why) but they are no longer available through my H&M so if anyone sees them available in a size 4 and want to pick them up for me, I’d really appreciate it.


Or if you just want to talk me out of buying them, I love wet blankets too as they keep my wallet happy and warm. 🙂
