Je voudrais s'il vous plaît - H&M

Friday, 18 February 2011

There is very rarely an occasion where I'll go into H&M and not want to buy something. Unlike Topshop, where I'll pick up something gorgeous but then feel my stomach turn as I read the price tag, H&M is home to fabulous, wearable fashion that is super affordable and, quite often, a lot cheaper than you'd expect. Take, for example, the blue dress above; super cute, could be worn in so many ways AND is only £14.99. FOURTEEN NINETY NINE! When I saw it in store a couple of weeks ago, I expected it to be around £30, and I reckon most people would be quite happy to pay that. I actually tried it on but decided to get a different dress instead (sadly couldn't justify buying both, despite the cheapness, as I'm still very much a pauper) but I do think it's lovely.

The tiny glimpses of sunshine we've had this week prompted me to start thinking about Summer, hence my slightly more colourful choices for this wish list. I realised that a large portion of my wardrobe is made up of black or dark colours, although this must be subconscious thing, as I don't necessarily prefer dark colours, I just seem to end up buying them. This will change; I want to be colourful and wear pink and look cheerful and girlie this Summer and there's not much doubt that I'll be end up with more than a few pieces that hail from H&M, so it seemed like a good idea to start picking some stuff out, even if it is only February.

What do people think of the H&M online store? I can't say I've really used it, as there's actually two H&M stores in Liverpool anyway, so I don't really need to shop online. It is quite good for a browse, although I do find the layout a bit confusing; it's not quite as straightforward as other online shops. Also, it's a bit weird, because when you click on an item, it doesn't take you to a specific product page, it just opens up a viewing window thing (I'm very good at technical-speak, aren't I?) so I can't actually link to each item like I did with my New Look wish list. I'll still list the items with prices, but if you actually want to look any of them up, you'll have to just visit and search them out yourself, sorry!

Donald Duck tee - £9.99 - also available with Garfield on it!

Chiffon tunic - £19.99 - available in powder and pink

Butterfly top - £7.99 - available in turquoise and powder pink

Tiered dress - £14.99 - available in bright blue and yellow

Lace up pumps - £7.99 - available in floral, leopard print, blue, white and black

Are you an H&M fan (how could you not be?!) Bought anything good lately?


  1. I actually just got the H&M catalogue through the post this week. They're upping their game! Love the butterfly crop top.

    And yes, the weather has been beautiful this week! Okay, it's been cold, but the sunshine. Oh, how I yearn for glorious sunshine! I'm like a sunflower, haha!


  2. Je voudrais le chiffon tunic aussi! Don't know how well it would translate on me though; I look a bit tent-like in those kind of shaped tops. I'm so put off by the H&M website. When it first launched, I was so excited and I was thinking of ordering something just to use the website but the whole layout is off putting. Even the way they display the items in a line and you have to click for the next row is so annoying! I like websites laid out like ASOS! But yeah, I'd just go to stores anyway haha x

  3. I rarely tend to buy things from H&M but I love the skirt!
