So…I made my first trip to H&M EVER yesterday because of their buy 1 get one 50% off coupon, and I thought it would be a good place to find an affordable boyfriend blazer, and came away with this “dress” and a corduroy skirt (no blazer – I should have figured everything would run so small – they didn’t have the blazer I wanted in a size that fit me). I just fell in love with the print and colors on this dress, and find that the neckline is very flattering, as is the waist. Which combination do you like better? Jeans? or leggings? (guess which is my favorite…)
Again, the bag is Fullum & Holt, which I’m going to review soon…just trying to put it through a few more tests first! But OMG, I love it.
And yeah, I know I need some new shoes. I’m actually dying for these Stuart Weitzman booties, but don’t know if I’ll wear them enough to justify the price. The shoes on the right are J Crew ballet flats in black suede – I’m starting to really love the richness of suede, I guess that’s Fall on the way! The shoes on the left are Sportmax clogs that are 5 or 6 years old and have been worn to death. I saw them in an issue of Teen Vogue and searched frantically until I found them. And they’ve turned out to be one of my best shoe buys…

Love that dress so much better as a tunic-length top! And thanks for the heads up on the Matt Bernson sale. I’ve worn my Love sandals out over the past two summers…
hiya!! so you like the jeans better?
i’m tempted by the nude love sandals – that would be a great color for me i think…

The jeans are good, but I’m digging the leggings on you 🙂 I’m torn between a new pair of Love sandals (the black/black ones are so hot) and the Frye Allie Softy pumps. CanNOT decide.
I absolutely LOVE the dress/tunic on you! SO flattering in every way. It’s gotta be with the leggings (volume on the top…you get it!). And it would be perfection with the Stuart Weitzman booties in black suede. Tres chic, Mlle. Grechen! ; )
BTW, what necklace are you wearing? So cute with the tunic!
oops…forgot to mention that! it’s one of the necklaces i got from modcloth: http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModCloth/Womens/Accessories/Necklaces/Cleopatra+Necklace
it’s very cute, although the chain is shorter than i expected…love it with this tunic
i just bought the same dress! did it fit weird at the boob/armhole for you?? i don’t know if i need a smaller size or if it’s supposed to be kinda baggy in that area??
yes! it’s definitely big there, i wear a tank top underneath, or think it will work nicely with a long sleeve crewneck or turtleneck when it’s cooler…i don’t know if it’s “supposed” to be, but i couldn’t size down, it’d be too small in my hips then!
