I went up North to visit the boyfriend before he leaves to go home for the holidays and took advantage of the trip and visited this larger H&M that I have been meaning to browse. I was first alerted about this dress by fellow petite Megan but have not seen it in stores until this weekend. I recognized this little number immediately.

 

I love the details at the shoulder, it is simply gorgeous. I also like the slight bubble hem. At $34.95, it is a nice little dress that I wouldn’t hesitate to wear in the Spring. I don’t know that I would brave New England weather just to wear this dress on its own but I will sure admire your tenacity if you do.

The alphabet sizing (I am wearing XS in the pictures) means that it doesn’t fit as small as some H&M number sized dresses.  I can’t really imagine it on anyone with really small shoulders.

I also found the lace skirt seen on several petites (Kelly, Cher, and Ping) in size 2 and took it home with me. I had tried it on once before but decided to sleep on it. All the size 2’s disappeared when I revisited the store and I haven’t been able to find it in size 2 until now. I’ll have some pictures of it tomorrow.
