Or a really good one anyway.
shirt dress from h&m
It's modal, feels really cool & comfy. Looks kinda preppy/boho. Has pockets!!

I bought it 3 days ago, have gotten loads of compliments & feel very comfy yet stylish.

Caveat #1 I have yet to launder it
Caveat #2 I do prefer my shoulders/upper arms covered, others may feel differently!

I paid €30, so I presume £25 or so...

Sorry, not modal. It's lyocell! Whatever that is. Feels like a thicker washed silk fabric. Soft & breathable

That's lovely. I might sneak into H&M on the way to my chiropodist appointment tomorrow!

That is lovely! Is it available to buy on the website? It only has a 'share' link confused

Too short for me.
Lovely though.

I love it. I'm going to buy one for Glastonbury grin thanks

Lovely. I'm 6ft tall though....maybe I could wear it as a tunic?

Tencel is really lovely to wear (unlike modal!) I did used to have a dress that sort of style when I was much, much younger and skinner. I'd look like an unmade bed in one, now.

Lyocell is such a great fabric - I have a pair of jeans which are mostly tencel (same diff) and they're just so comfy.

I have it! Bought it Friday, love love love it.

Super flattering, cannot imagine who it would be unflattering on. If only it was in different colours...

Arriettyborrower Mon 16-Jun-14 19:30:34

Oh and yes £24:99

Oh that is nice. But too short for me. envy

Arriettyborrower Mon 16-Jun-14 19:32:43

northumberlandlass surely that model must be nearing 6 foot? It's just under knee length on me - 5 foot 3....

noddyholder Mon 16-Jun-14 19:33:49

I would look like prisoner cell block h in that but its lovely!

MozzchopsThirty Mon 16-Jun-14 19:34:57

I love this, will make my way to H&M soon

Onesleeptillwembley Mon 16-Jun-14 19:36:30

It's a bit 'prisoner; cell block H'. Don't like it at all.

Onesleeptillwembley Mon 16-Jun-14 19:37:08

Great minds, Noddy. grin

JuanPotatoTwo Mon 16-Jun-14 19:37:25

It is lovely but looks more like a shirt than a dress <shows age>

Littleturkish Mon 16-Jun-14 19:37:52

Sleeves = spring, but like the idea.

Best1sWest Mon 16-Jun-14 19:39:16

That would be a shirt on me.

Naicecuppatea Mon 16-Jun-14 19:46:47

Love it, but can't seem to get hold of it online envy

Iatemyskinnyperson Mon 16-Jun-14 19:52:32

I'm 5'4" and it's maybe1.5/2" above my knee. Pretty decent on me without being matronly!

Northumberland there is a tie waist on it. I'd be worried it might hit you too high? If not it would be nice with cropped leggings or jeggings (or treggings wink)

Clicked on this as Breastfeeding access is important in my current clothes choices. Can't see it flattering me. I hate anything with an elastic nip at the waist. I'm lacking in waist and short bodied so would make me look like a sack of spuds hmm.

Iatemyskinnyperson Mon 16-Jun-14 20:06:53

It's not elastic, it's draw-string.

Thanks! Arrietty, had a trip to H&M planned in my lunch hour tomorrow..will see if I can find it & try it on.

Yes, the belt may become an empire line, I'll wait & see.smile
