H&M Eyelet Dress

h&m eyelet dress set

For me doing an X-ways post is like going to the gym.  You drag your feet all the way there, but afterward you feel damn good.  I found this H&M eyelet dress years ago in college and it’s still a delight to wear.  (Note: I had to shorten it).  I’ve outfitted two different looks with a change of top, legwear and shoe.  Which style resonates with you?  Do tell.  And stay a while to check out X-ways: Nicholas K Tucker Sweat and Rose Chase Me Bolero Jacket.

    The first look for sure; I’m such a girly girl. Ha, that dress is SO adorable; I’m jealous of you for having it (and mad at myself for not noticing it three years ago ha).

    Ooh! I love them both ways, but I think the yellow cardi is my fave. But I clicked on the link for the vest/jacket, it’s absolutely brilliant! What an amazing find!

    Once again, I’m so glad you posted on my blog so I could find you, would you like to exchange links? :)


    PS. How I wish I could take stunning shots like yours! Who takes your shots? And do you model? The body language/poses are just so cool!

    That dress makes for a really good layering piece. I’m always on the lookout for pieces like that. I think I prefer the yellow cardi look, but they’re both great.
