I'm baaaackkkk!  
[ :: H&M Inclusive dress :: H&M clutch :: Noir and Belargo rings via ideeli :: Forever21 necklace & heels :: ]

Ahhhh, sorry for the gap in posting! I've been swamped with other projects and to be totally honest, I've been taking much needed breaks during the weekend with friends and family! :D

Anyway, this dress is one of the pieces that the lovely and accommodating Jen of JasiferLionsClub helped me buy from the H&M Inclusive collection! I love love love it. The fit is fantastic and the material is surprisingly nice! It's quite heavy and fully lined in a pretty yellow satin. :) I picked up a few other pieces and will hopefully share them with you guys soon! :D

Also, I get a TON of emails about these shoes. Yes, they're really tall, but no, I don't have issues walking in them. Yes, I have wide feet, but I had the shoes stretched a little so they fit perfectly! :) They're one of my favorite pairs of shoes so I definitely recommend them if they pop up on the F21 website again. I'd buy another pair myself for when these inevitably fall apart!

Yours, Etc.


  1. For someone who is named after a breed of flower, you are rose-beautiful in this blog post! Truly love the floral dress and those delightful mary jane platforms. I also love the red clutch that provides a pop of color to offset the black and white colors. Allison, you look fantastic!


  2. I love this dress, the print is very intriguing. And I love that you stayed with flower theme and added a rosette clutch:)

  3. I love this dress so much! I have it too ( http://xlfashionfile.blogspot.com/2011/03/outfit-of-day-h-inclusive.html ) and my daughter wanted it as well so she got one in a tiny size. The fabric is really great and I love the degraded edge on the skirt. You look great!

  4. Beautiful! I especially like the red clutch. I might have to purchase it lol.

  7. The Convo in my head as I scrolled through your pics:
    "She looks cute in that dress"
    "I know that dress"
    "I WANT that dress"
    "I'm definitely getting that dress"
    "Oh...I can't get the dress, stup H&M."

    I love this look and I love that you kept things simple to keep the focus on the dress and a surprise with the clutch.

  8. I'm in LOVE with that clutch. Now I will definitely make myself one. Probably in every color. LOL And that dress looks so pretty. I like that it has a satin yellow lining. I like little touches like that. Glad to see you back.

  12. You look beautiful. I'm surprised to read that the fit is great though, as I've heard about a lot of problems with H&M sizes. Did you size up? No matter what, great dress. The colours are stunnig on you.


  13. Love this dress, and the red clutch is the perfect accessory.

  17. Love the heels. Nothing is more flattering to me on fuller girls than a nice tall heel. I'm 5'11 and I still wear some heel daily.

  18. Love the colors of this dress and the red clutch, perfect :)
