Obsessed with the Dress.

My name is Michelle and I have an H&M problem. I'm addicted to cheap fashion - almost as much as my high end stuff. This dress was on promo at H&M for $20 and it was love at first sight. Unfortunately they only had one left in my store on the mannequin and it was already promised to another customer. Let's just say 3 stores later and this lovely was mine. When I finally found it - it was the last dress in the store and happened to be my size! Score!

From head to toe:
  • Earrings: Rebecca Minkoff, sample sale, $5 (RV $48)
  • Dress: H&M, $20
  • Top: Boyfriend Halftee layering top, Amazon, $15 (RV $19.99)
  • Jacket: Gap, $8 (RV $69.95)
  • Bracelets: Dannijo, sample sale, $25 each
  • Ring: Dannijo, sample sale, $25
  • Shoes: Sophia Webster Keira Doiley sandals, sample sale, $95 (RV $750)

So let's talk shoes! I had a pair of new Rebecca Minkoff tassel sandals that I scored from the sample sale for just $5 that I wanted to wear but the dress was sweeping the floor (I'm 5'5") so I needed a heel. Don't worry, I'll be sharing my hauls soon! I've just been so busy shopping all the amazing sales of late. These Sophia Webster sample sale scores were a last second grab as I was out the door but I think they make the outfit. While we were shooting a little old lady stopped to admire my shoes LOL.

The dress has a lot of fabric and it can easily overwhelm you. I'm thinking about cutting it to knee length to make it more wearable.

It was actually deceptively cold that day. If you look closely you can see the tiny hairs on my legs standing up. I think this was the last of the really cold days this season. I always layer with my denim jackets for transitional weather because they add such a cheerful pop of color.

By the end of the shoot my son decided to join in. I can't believe Akiva is so big! He's 11 and almost as tall as me (I'm wearing heels here) - and his feet are almost as big as my giant ones.

You can shop my look below:

A huge thank you to Misha Rodionov Photography. Check out his website here, and follow him on Instagram here and Facebook here.

Now it's really last call to enter my Rebecca Minkoff earring giveaway - I just extended it thru the weekend.  You can win a pair of these beauties here.

Sadly I won't be attending the Alice and Olivia sample sale on Monday (stupid Jewish Holiday...) so save some good stuff for me on Tuesday! You can buy a $10 VIP pass to cut the line and get in at 9:30 instead of noon here.

As always, if you see me there, be sure to say hello!



  1. These photos are so beautiful and I am loving the outfit and shoes! I don't have as great luck with H&M as you though!


    1. Thanks Shira! H&M hasn't been my best friend this year but they've redeemed themselves with a couple pieces.

  2. I wish I could rock out that kind of dress!

    1. I'm not so sure I can - I really have to chop it. It's a lot of material and makes my boobs look huge.

  3. This dress looks so great on you! H&M definitely has some great pieces, and I admit I like cheap clothes sometimes too. I actually got a 40% off coupon in the mail so I'm thinking about finally getting a denim jacket (the ones at goodwill are always a bit....off....).

    Can't wait to see the $5 REBECCA MINKOFF SANDALS LIKE HOLY CRAP!


    1. Thanks! I got one of those coupons a while back and totally forgot to use it :( This denim jacket I got at the Gap for $8 after they had some crazy code stacking glitch. I have a denim jacket from H&M that I got for sale for $10 but I don't love it.

      And yeah, $5 sandals! A girl and I got into a fight about them (we each pulled one shoe) but I was not letting go LOL.
