I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again but I don’t really consider myself someone who is the most stylish person. I enjoy shopping but I’m relatively cheap and often can’t justify spending money on a trend that will only last a month or two and often feel like I look funny in them anyway. (Let’s be honest, that last one is probably just a confidence issue and most people probably think I look just fine.) I’m also not someone who generally wears shorts. In fact, few people who know me have probably ever seen me in shorts. I’ll wear a skirt or a dress but I find shorts to be an extremely unflattering piece of clothing that most people should never wear. A big part of that is due to the extremely short length to which they cut women’s shorts, though this could be a topic in itself. Also being as pale as I am, I generally don’t show off my legs since you can see every vein, scratch and bruise popping out from my glowing-white skin. Please note, I am hardly over-reacting.
Anyway, with that said, I saw a dress online the other day (I think on another blog) and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. This isn’t like me. At all. I am a relatively simple shopper – my jeans often come from American Eagle, plain t-shirts come off the $8 rack at Target (no joke! I get compliments on these t-shirts all the time and they are super comfortable and last me. I love them!), shoes and other clothing items often come from places like TJMaxx, Marshalls, Forever 21, H&M, and Gap. Clearly, I’m cheap. But I don’t go shopping very often so these just happen to be the places I stop. And don’t get me wrong, I love these stores! Stores like TJMaxx and Marshalls can be full of junk clothing but you can also find some real steals or at least a new bag and pair of heels! I’m just pointing out it’s very unlike me to obsess over a fashion item, especially one that shows off my legs…
But can I show you this dress?
This dress is part of the Conscious Collection for H&M that’s dropping in stores on April 14th. I think I need to mark my calendar… I.want.this.dress. I don’t know where I plan to wear it and it’s more money than I like to spend (it’s $50 which I know really isn’t that much). But it’s gorgeous and I’m obsessed.
Friends – can we go somewhere that I can wear this please? Thank you. 🙂
