H&M Lace Skirt

December 13, 2010

I am a few months behind everyone, but I finally found the lace skirt that got raving reviews from nearly every petite that tried it on. I think it looks more flattering in real life than in pictures and I love that it's fully lined.

I didn't realize this until earlier today when I wore it out but I had trouble climbing into cabs because it's a slim fitting pencil skirt (duh) which I am sure made for some pretty entertaining moments for those who had the (mis)fortune of witnessing me try to get into the backseat of a cab.


See it on Kelly (she did a very thorough review of the skirt, including measurements and fabric content), Cher, and Ping. Also, for those of you who love colorful belts, H&M has some for only $5.95. I got the green and really wanted to get some in orange and red but there are none left in smaller sizes.

LOL crooked belt. I need to review outfit pictures before I wear them out
The top is from J. Crew factory store online (about $30?). The size 0 is HUGE. I wouldn't recommend it to you unless you are really tall. It looks ok tucked in and under a blazer but on its own it's a disappointment. Too long and too wide and armholes too large. The ruffles are pretty so I kept it.

  1. Oo you must post this in the alterations needed forum thread "item reviews" ! I just saw Kelly compiled a nice collection of fellow petites who have featured this skirt.

    The blouse is pretty...if you take it to your tailors I'm sure it would look great after some side slimming!

  2. Love that skirt on you. It looks great on everyone. I saw that belt at H&M the other but none of XS were available :) I am glad you have found that skirt. I know it's been a while. It's great to see the same piece on different petites

  3. So many petites have that skirt! I have the same style, but it's solid black. I totally understand the cab situation, I have trouble walking up the stairs with it! =)

  4. Super cute skirt! It looks really great! And I had to giggle a little about the slim fit. I sometimes get surprised when I wear slimmer fitting skirts too! Oh, and I love the shoes! :)

  5. I really love this skirt from the first time I saw it on Kelly. It's great that you were able to find it. I wasn't that lucky. Enjoy. (minus the cab incident. :))

  6. I've loved this skirt on everyone and you are definitely not an exception. I really love the ruffle detail on the blouse too! It's unfortunate that it's ill-fitting without something over it. Also like the green belt with the outfit!

  10. This is a lovely outfit, Elle. Very classy and romantic. I'm looking forward to my trip to San Francisco where there are 4 H&Ms. I hope I will still be able to find some of the items the petite blogging community reviewed on :).

  11. Wow this skirt is perfect on you Elle! It hits at just the right length! Now I want a skinny green belt! :)

    Hahaha about the cab.. I have trouble sometimes stepping up the ginormous foot high curbs where I work in pencil skirts too!

  16. This was one of my fav H&M items recently, but there's never any in my size at my H&M's. As for getting into cars in tight skirts, I usually park my butt on the seat first and then pull my legs over and in lol.

  17. The visual from your cab incident is quite amusing!! This skirt looks amazing on you though and I love the blouse you chose to pair it with! (Can't tell it's too big when it's tucked in at all ;)
