Wear It Five Ways : H&M Lace Dress

November 10, 2010

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 t...he 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.

xppinkxx bought the first dress, post here
Sophia tried on the dress to the right here

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. :)

  21. Loving these series, Elle! I've been eyeing this dress since it went on sale, but I'm sure they're all gone by now:( It's probably a good thing for my wallet since it's holiday shopping time! Woohoo! I agree with the comment above, I won't be talking you out of these dresses haha! They would look stunning on ya! Have a great weekend!
