Shopping H&M: New Stripe Dress

Admittedly, I haven’t been shopping in H&M much lately.  The reasons are varied, ranging from not finding many styles that I like to encountering a questionable quality on some of the clothing.

I am glad, though, that I ventured into H&M last weekend because this recent visit reignited my interest in the store.  I was drawn in by the colors, prints, lace, and knits.  More importantly, many of the items looked much more expensive than their low prices.

I found myself smitten by a wide stripe dress in the store.  I know what you are thinking, “more stripes Psyche?”  Yes!  The dress has a superb knit that is just right to wear now and heavy enough to sport all fall long.  It also has a very generous fit.  I sized down to an XS, which is unusual for me in H&M.  I am typically in the size 6 to 8 range there.

Dress-H&M $29.99

Dress-H&M, Blazer-H&M,
Shoes-Franco Sarto via Marshalls

This dress also comes in a pink and orange.  And, I clearly can’t get enough stripes because I want that one too.

Have you explored H&M’s fall collection?  Anything tickle your fancy?

    I don't do well in H&M either, for the reasons you mentioned. The quality being first and foremost. I'm always checking out the garment tag to see what the material is.
    I like the dress you picked up.

    @Shasie: How wonderful for Houston! When I was in KY, I used to have to drive all the way to Cincinnati to visit H&M. They are all over St. Louis though.

    @Life as Leah: Aww thanks! The quality of the knit was so notable, I had to try it on. It was over after that.

    @Sing: See now…you feel me. It's been hit or miss for a while. Really excited about many of the new fall items though.

    @Lori: That blazer is attractive, right? It was only $29.99 too! I bought it earlier in the summer. I'm not sure if it is still available. There is an orange, cropped jacket in stores now that is quite pretty.

    @Like Mousse au Choco: Thanks!
