Wannabe grecian

I am fully aware that this blog is turning dangerously into a homage to H&M but just humour me...

...another new item from my favourite shop of the moment.

A light mint coloured drape dress. It's a copy - of course - of dresses I have seen by the likes of Acne.

I absolutely love the colour, the length (it just hits my knee), the weight (it feels like a great quality, heavy dress...even though we all know its a silk-polyester mix!) but most of all....I love the back.

The only drawback with this dress? Well to be honest there are two...

1) The drapes at the hips may emphasise a trouble area. I kind of like it....it gives me a curve which I appreciate.

2) This dress cannot - I repeat cannot - be worn with any kind of bra. Luckily I have nipples rather than breasts so it works okay for me but for anyone with anything resembling more than a handful, it would be tricky/gratuitous.

Nevertheless this is one of those pieces that H&M are churning out at the moment and which are making it an amazing and exciting place to shop...

Here's to the next shopping visit! :) 


  1. I also do tend to have some phase where I can be obsessed with a brand (MU or clothes). Lately, I am obsessed with the maxi dresses from Boohoo.com.

    Regarding point #1 : You can totally afford it!
    point # 2 : Believe me my dear, the breast area looks nice and not wearing a bra is not an issue for you! :)

    Looking forward to your next shopping visit... Let me guess... H&M ? ;)

  2. :) thanks @Nina. And yes...more H&M. In my defence it is incredible at the moment. Some great simple pieces, in lovely shades...work and play friendly. Can't wait to wear them.

    Must check out boohoo.com - never have and I do love a Maxi dress.... :)

  3. ahhh you are right, the back is absolutely stunning!! haven't seen anything like this in my h&m yet (but then again it's a poor excuse of an h&m)... amazing choice nonetheless! xx

  4. @Sandra - admittedly the draping is a little weird. BUT i love interesting/weird clothes and I think its such a great colour....like all H&M's you have to search through the crap to find the gems...so worth it :) ps. cant wait for your bronze universal review!

  5. love that on you!!! i guess bigger boobed girls could maybe layer something underneath it? but it does look the best on its own x

  6. @Patricia - thanks so much! I keep thinking that there might be a bra out there that would be suitable...maybe those cup things...wish support was built in but hey, can't have it all :)

  7. This is so very very stunning on you Laura, I absolutely love the colour :) It's so great to have you back xx

  8. Lovely to have you back blogging. I think I found your old blog about a week bofre you stopped!

    The dress is gorgeous, love the back detail and being incredibly flat chested myself like being able to go without a bra. Must have a look for it in my local store. H&M is funny as I have some beautiful pieces from them from university days but recently have struggled to find things. Quality seems to vary massively between items but I guess it is worth the search when you find something like this.

    Looking forward to seeing what other gems you find in future shopping trips!

  9. Good to have you back Laura! Haha this post made me laugh because I am also among the population of small breasted women. This dress is gorgeous, and not what I expected from H&M.

    I'm so excited to read your new posts =)

  10. Oh my god, I think I gasped aloud at this dress...beautiful draping! you look so great in it too. Haha "I have nipples and not breasts."

  11. this dress really is very nice.
    did you get a 34 or is there even a 32? or which makes me think, do you guys go by 34 and 32 or rather by 6 and 8?? anyhow...i was just wondering which size you choose...
