Well, they actually did have 2 of them! One in size 2 and one in size 8. I find H&M sizing pretty inconsistent, so I never know what size to wear. I tried on both sizes, and the size 2 felt too tight across the shoulders, but already very baggy in the body! Size 8 was of course even baggier in the body, but the shoulder felt much better. I know it's the style of the dress, but I think it's a little TOO baggy for my liking. It's truly a dress you could hide your pregnant belly in! I thought maybe I could add a belt to it, but it is $250 so that's kind of a lot for a dress (especially at H&M!) if I'm not 100% happy with it! I also thought it looked pretty cheap on the hanger. But did think that the quality looked better on. Soooo... I passed on it.
But I found this other dress that also has the "Conscious" tag - navy striped jersey dress, and it's only $17.95! Haha. I do love the current nautical inspired fashion trend. This dress is very soft and I thought it had a nice cut and fit well in size S. It's a great casual summer dress, and would be great for vacation as well. So I bought it! I like the casual styling for this dress on their website:
I had my Modern Vintage wedge heels on, so this is the dress on me, slightly more dressy look. I tied the waist around on the back instead of the front like the model:
I actually already have a dress that's kind of similar lol. The Kensei sidewalk cafe dress. But whateverrrr...
I also love lace skirts that are quite trendy now as well! I liked this long white skirt. I tried on size S in the store but it was kind of tight around the hips. So I bought the size M without trying it on. When I put it on at home though, I realized that the waist is a little too loose while the hips fit well. The inner lining also tends to move up as you walk around. Argh. Might have to go try on the S again and see if I want to exchange. Or maybe I should just exchange for something completely different that fits well. We'll see. I like this skirt though. But I do wish it was a couple inches shorter as well.
I don't like the side view so much, it makes me look short even with 5 inch heels:
Not sure if you can tell, but the waist is very loose, oh and it's rather sheer even with the lining! As you can see my dark blue underwear underneath lol:
I love the back though! But not sure what kind of bra I can wear with it (not wearing one here):
