H&M

I've been finding myself in H&M finding more stuff.  If I wasn't on a spending diet then I probably would have grabbed a lot more. Went there twice this week and each time I said I was going in just to "see what they had" and make sure I could hate on EVERYTHING so I could feel good about not buying anything.  <---In my mind that sentence makes sense.  Well that didn't happen but I don't feel guilty at all cause I kinda came up.








 This dress was originally $20 but had one of those red H&M discount tags attch'd making it $9.95. Thought I was at my favorite thrift store for a minute with that price. Fits great. The right length. Good price. And I'm happy.

Got this jacket on an earlier visit in the week.  I could not leave this one at the store. It was a DOPE price and it has a corset fit and stitching around the waist with an asymmetrical cut.  Its also collarless and most importantly zippabl :)  I actually bought a couple a couple faux leather jackets a few months ago from H&M.  I ended up taking them back cause they just weren't my style...and i think I bought them just cause they were on sale.   When I tried this one on I was so happy with the fit in the arms!.......then I tried to zip it :(  So then I went up TWO sizes and was underwhelmed with the fit in the arms but was able to zip it...yay?  So after staring in the mirror for 15 minutes constantly trying on sizes 6 - 12 I decided on the one that zipped but had a little extra room in the arms.  When I got home I got the idea to layer it with the softest wool sweater I have ever known........and ta-da.

I'm at home sipping a cup of hot tea, after a very long and fantastic weekend of partying, and I check my blog, only to find a new and wonderful follower. Just wanted to say hi to you, and tell you how fabulous that jacket is, and looks great on you. Glad you got the one that allowed some room in the arms so you can layer things underneath. You look great in it!!!

That jacket is amazing, I love the collar. It must be hard to find stuff that fits in the right place for you, you have a killer bust and a tiny waist. My friend has the same figure, and we all have boobie envy, but when we what shopping I understood why they ticked her off. You dress well and I hope you inspire others girls to show their figure and work it. Thank you for your lovely comment, and loving that yellow dress on you xxxxx
