H&M Fabulousness: Go Bold with some GREEN!

StyleWeek Providence commenced last night and I was excited to finally be able to attend! There’s one thing I love about attending fashion events… anything (I mean, ANYTHING) goes. You don’t have to worry about fitting in or blending because everyone is out to impress and wear something FABULOUS!

I wanted to do 2 things last night:
1. Go with a bright, bold color.
2. Go SHORT (with black tights, of course!)

I had bought an H&M green dress this past October for like $34.99 on a whim in NYC. I saw it hanging on the rack, loved it… and scooped it up. I hung it in my closet and it has literally sat still with tags and all for 4 months… until last night. I grabbed it, popped it on and LOVED the color.

I toned down the shortness of the dress with black tight and booties…

And I felt comfortable and (yes…) beautiful last night in some bold color! It DID help to have my sons see me off and tell me that I looked pretty, so that was nice.

So my fashion advice?

If you see a fabulous dress for an amazingly low price hanging on a rack… scoop it up! You never know when you’ll need it!

    I LOVE that photo too! Talk about fierceness! I told myself that this year I’d do more green and glitter – 2 styles that I don’t have enough of in my closet. I need some H&M in my life.
