Currently lusting over: H&M maxi dress

23.5.10

I'm currently on the hunt for a flattering, reasonably priced, pretty maxi dress. I own one currently and it has been worn once, never to be seen again.

The one I fancy the most:




H&M - no doubt sold out as it's such a bargain! If I had been quicker off the mark I would have got a black/white striped, blue/white striped and possibly a plain one too. If anyone spots one in a size 12 be sure to let me know :) Heck, I would even try and squeeze into a 10!

I would throw this on over a bikini on the beach or dress it up for an evening meal. Lovely!

  1. I'm so annoyed with myself regarding this dress - when it first landed in H&M I had the plain black and black and white striped in my hands, but the queue was massive so gave up and vowed to go back later. Of course then they were all sold out and they've not been back in stock since!

    Will keep my eye out for you, and me! :) x

  3. Maxi dresses are so pretty, I'm so annoyed that I can't wear them. They would literally drown me as I'm not very tall.

  4. I think my H&M still has these... I didnt buy one as it is VERY thin and you can see everything underneath

  9. It's lovely! Stripes are gorgeous, I wish I were slimmer so I'd be able to pull them off.

    i hope you manage to find one! xo

  11. I saw these in my H&M about a month ago, they were sooo long! I'm already 5'9 and when I held it up against me there was loads of fabric trailing on the floor. I think even if I'd worn huge heels with it it still would've been too long so I don't know what a person of average height would have done with it! xxx

  14. H&M have got some great summer stuff in at the moment! I bought a cream and black polka dot playsuit for £7.99 on Friday and a cute black sundress for only £4.99! Bargain! Couldn't get it cheaper in Primarni! Lol. Also loving Primark vests - especially as all my H&M ones get holes in them so quickly, I'd much rather spend £1/£2.50 on one rather than £4.99! xx

  17. I want to try out a maxi dress - I want to find a cheap one before I commit to something I might not even wear!

  18. Haha I am like 5ft 3" so I feel like a maxi dress would absolutely drown me! :( These are gorgeous though. Very bohemian summer feeling :) is it just me or had h&m seriously stepped up its game these days? haha your comment on the sloth post made me laugh. Im totally up for escaping the country and getting a job at one of those sloth orphanages!! xx

  22. I love maxi dresses. I always thought I'd look awful in it as I'm pretty short but bit the bullet a couple of weeks ago and bought one from Dorothy Perkins - I love it! Now have two of them :) xx

  23. I have one! the purple and cream coloured one. It's gorgeous, but very long and quite thin.
    I hook mine up a bit with a belt, but there is something hippie about wearing it trailing on the floor.
    Glad I got it when I did, seem to have been quite popular on the blogs.

  24. I was never sure how I would look in a maxi dress but I bought my first one this weekend and my 2 year old niece told me I looked like a princess! That is good enough for me!
