Annebeth 's Thoughts:

New shoes, belt and dress and I am IN LOVE

I bought loads of new stuff yesterday at H&M, they have SO many gorgeous vintage inspired dresses in their new collection! And they all have SLEEVES! I have no idea why most highstreet stores make it so hard for us to find dresses with sleeves. Sleeves make a dress look like, a gazillion times better than say, spaghetti straps. More expensive for one, and more classy too. A lot more sophisticated. I also bought a poncho I am madly in love with. At 19.95, I call it quite a bargain. The way it drapes makes it looks like a million bucks. When I try stuff on, I always ask myself “does this make me look richer than I actually am?”. Not because I want to look like one of those spoiled little rich girls but because, let’s face it, expensive clothes are prettier than cheap clothes. I don’t want my fake leather to look like fake leather, and I don’t want my prints to look like they’ve been washed a million times. I strive for a bit of sophistication (that word again) in my appearance. Refined but fun. Fashion conscious, but not a slave of trends.
Dresses with sleeves and ponchos apparently make me feel sophisticated. But my very favorite buy of the day was this adorable cute little dress, easily one of the prettiest things H&M has had in years. I’ll show you guys tomorrow how pretty it actually is, it’s not listed online. It’s silky with black/white stripes and it looks so much more expensive than it is! Last week, a girl entered the shop I work at, and I immediately loved her look from head to toe. She had the perfect Blake Lively-esque mane, and she wore a wellfitted blazer, a Prada bag, pumps with an interesting, architectural heel and the cutest skirt I ever did see. I immediately imprinted the design in my mind because I thought “when I finally get that sewing machine from my mom, I’m going to copy that skirt”. She looked very rich and very very pretty, like a Gossip Girl character. So I didn’t even bother asking her where she’d bought that skirt because I wouldn’t be able to afford it. You can imagine how OVER THE MOON I was when I noticed that very skirt hanging in our local H&M!!! Seriously, I was like “NO WAY” and I grabbed it and bought it. It looks designer and only cost 24 euro. Style is priceless, and H&M makes me happy every single time.

The shoes were an item I had been contemplating buying for several weeks (seriously, I still have the link to the shoes’ page bookmarked). I had browsed the web for clogs for ages, and these were very much the type of shoe I wanted. Something Liebemarlene would wear with one of her adorable vintage dresses and some socks.

I had been wanting some Liebemarlene style shoes, and these fit the bill perfectly. However, I hadn’t been able to visit New Look recently, so yesterday I was anxious to see how the shoes would look like in real life. And I loved them even more. New Look was having sales on their clogs, selling 55 euro clogs for 25, so I almost didn’t buy my Liebemarlene shoes (as I have dubbed them by now)as they weren’t placed with the marked down shoes, trying on real, full on clogs instead. But the Liebemarlenes had stolen my heart, so I stood in line to pay a bit more. However, when they scanned in my shoes, the sales assistant told me these were marked down too! It was seriously my lucky day. I had almost forgotten how happy one perfect shoppingtrip can make one feel.

I also bought a headband I intend on customizing and two pairs of comfortable sandals. And ALMOST bought this gorgeous army-type navy coat at H&M but at 60 euro, I thought it was way too expensive. Still thinking about it though. I figured it was the type of jacket that wouldn’t really sell well around here because of its masculin shape, so I chanced it and am waiting for it to be marked down. Fingers crossed!

OK now I’m closing down my verbal diarrhea. Have a nice day!

Nice dress and nicely paired witht he bow belt. Does it come together? I have the same thing very difficult finding dresses with sleeves, but I only see them in second hand stores and since I dont know how to alter, I never buy at a second hand store, just browse.
