H&M Dress – Size 4 • Old Mango Clutch Purse (Similar Here or Here) • River Island Gold Sandals – Size 6 (Similar Here) • Bite Beauty Lipstick (Tannin)

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to share with you my first fashion post and it’s just in time for the holidays. With all the festivities around the corner, I wanted to give you a glimpse of this amazing petite-friendly dress that H&M has produced this season. Of course, if you have never shopped at H&M before, I highly recommend going up in a size. Usually, I can get away with a size 0 or 2, but there is NO WAY that is going to be happening here.

I settled for the size 4 and even then the waist was still a little too snug for comfort. The sweetheart neckline was a little bit loose for me, but nothing a good push-up bra can’t fix. The dress did come with removable straps so that can be another option as well. The bottom fits more like a shift dress than a sheath dress, which could be a good thing if you plan on dancing the night away. Also, I immediately thought it could serve another purpose if wearing it for the holidays was out of the question. You guessed it… Valentine’s Day! With February coming up sooner than later, why not prepare yourself and save the stress for something else.


What really caught my eye about this dress is the material/texture. It is so fun and girly that it just made me smile. I paired the dress with some gold heels and a hard gold clutch to give it that extra sparkle. If you live in a colder climate, I suggest wearing this beautiful coat (which is on sale right now) to help keep you warm.  The gold hardware on the coat also would match your purse and heels. The best part is that it comes in regular and petite sizes.
