Shopaholics Anonymous


So… I have a confession. I spent entirely too much money this weekend. The good news is… Almost everything was on sale!

I went to H&M to check out their new arrivals… As well as browse the sale section. I received their ever evolving magazine in the mail last week and I circled my top 5 picks from their latest additions.

I was able to pick up a few things and I left a few things that I felt could be purchased at anytime. I’m gonna share all of them with you.

Oversized Cotton Shirt – $29.95

I have always loved the classic Shirt Dress. You can’t go wrong with a white dress shirt (pun intended). The boyfriend cut of this piece makes it super sexy, while the loose fit makes the styling possibilities endless. I shared more details in my last post if your interested. I took a peek at the online availability today and the sizes are going fast but if you pop into your local H&M I’m sure you won’t have a problem finding it.

Fitted Dress – $34.95

The next piece is a classic black dress in a super simple silhouette. The cap sleeve and Bodycon style makes it something you can add to your closet and have FOREVER! Pair it with a blazer a cardigan wear it alone with a statement necklace or paired with some pearl or hoop earrings… For $34.95 you really can’t go wrong. I did not get this particular piece because I didn’t have time to try it on but let me know how you like it if you get yours.

Pencil Skirt – $24.95

This next piece has been on my mind for a while now. The grey midi pencil skirt is great for the corporate lady. It’s a step out from the black pencil skirt. If you value variety in your work attire this will double and even triple the possibilities in your wardrobe. Most of the pairings you do with your black pencil skirt will look great with this as well. You can also turn this look into a dress by pairing it with crew neck and turtleneck tops for effortless fashion in the office. The thick stretchy material hugs you in all the right places.

Lace Dress – $59.95

If you don’t work in an office environment and you are a fan of dresses and bold colors you will love this piece. There’s no stretch but this lace dress is going to go flying off the shelves soon. It’s something you definitely have to try on but I love the color and lace dresses are my favorite kind of “lady-sexy.”

Ribbed Jersey Skirt – $49.95
The last piece I love is this burgundy zip front midi skirt. It is very versatile and can be dressed up or down. It’s trendy with the zipper but I think it adds character to any outfit. I love midi skirts and I think I may be building a collection.

If you had to pick one of my top five which would you be most eager to try? Let me know down in the comment section. Happy Shopping!


H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection


I don’t know why this is my first blog post featuring H&M since this is my favorite place to shop, so please accept my deepest apologies. H&M is launching their Conscious Exclusive Collection tomorrow April 10th at 10am EDT. They have released several Conscious collections in the past but this is the first I am noticing a Conscious Exclusive. This particular collection according to the site features bohemian inspired couture with the flair of Spanish flamenco. It is a party wear collection made from more sustainable materials to assuage the higher price tag. In this collection you will find pieces like short tunic dresses, bustiers, decorated jackets, slim pants and evening jackets. I must admit that this particular collection is not tailored to the frugal fashionista as some of the pieces retail for a whopping &549; however, there are some affordable pieces that I will be adding to my wish list.


This Lyocell Jumpsuit ($69) is a sleeveless jumpsuit in Tencel Lyocell fabric with a slight sheen. It has a fitted bodice with cut-out sections at the waist and V-neck at the front and back. With wide legs and a concealed back zipper it is sure to turn heads this summer.

The Lace Dress ($249) is a short A-line lace dress in an organic cotton blend, long-sleeves and small stand-up collar with covered buttons at the back of the neck would be great for a Spring brunch or a date at a museum in New York City. It does come from the pricier side of the collection but I’m sure you will have this timeless piece for years to come.


Last but not least we have the Wide-leg Satin Pants ($49.95). Since this is a price tag we are used to seeing from H&M I decided to leave you with this one. These satin pants. Add from recycled polyester, with pockets at the sides and high waist and drapery extra wide legs are great for the warmer months ahead. Wear them to a late night dinner or pair them with a fitted top and nude pumps for a polished look at a fashion show!
