But every so often, I pop back in against my will. The European brands thankfully have not given in to vanity sizing, so it’s one of the few non-designer places where the size 2 fits better on me than the 00 from J.Crew. And sometimes I’m rewarded with a rare find, like this striped skirt I discovered last time.
On my latest visit, I went in looking for some crop tops, but a few dresses caught my eye instead. The unexpected winner was this tropical dress, which fit so perfectly I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat much for lunch. The craftsmanship was solid, and the thick fabric felt comparable to something much more expensive though it was merely polyester.
And pockets! The pockets sealed the deal. Now that I live in the city, I constantly need my phone to navigate around the streets and it’s much easier to slip it into a pocket instead of rummaging through my purse each time.
Here are the other dresses I tried on at H&M:
I’m not in the market for a formal dress, but this was so pretty I wanted to try it on. At $129, it’s expensive but maybe not for a night of feeling like Cinderella. Or Gwyneth Paltrow. It fits very tightly, so size up if you are interested.
Yellow dresses in just the right hue are hard to find and this one fit quite nicely. However, it was a bit sheer for my taste and the edges of the cheap chantilly lace looked haphazard around the neckline.
Time for date night with Mr. Wonderful!
