High Street Luxe Find: H&M Shirt Dress (Yes another shirt dress!)

This H&M shirt dress (above image) is a super skin flattering colour for summer, a wardrobe staple for everyday with tan leather and a holiday essential.

Spotting this could not have happened at a more opportune moment, I was loving and on the tip of buying the Rag & Bone Ohara Shirt Dress £263.77 / $415.00 (bottom image) when next in Colorado.

I bought the H&M dress online and await delivery, it was a bargain too, reduced from £29.99 to £14.99, the delivery charge is their standard £3.90, but I did get the added 10% off one item discount for signing up to their email newsletter, total £15.14.

Looking at the H&M Dress online I think I will have to tidy up the hem at the bottom of the dress but I do love the unfussy pockets, slinky silk like fabric, nice shoulder detail and casual but elegant sleeves. I have tan leather accessories ready to add to this dress.

Investment piece? Perhaps for one season - it may not last - more like a functional chic piece. It certainly will be worth the price paid as I can see it worn time and time again. A great style buy too as the V neck option (undo a few buttons) elongates the body for a slimmer taller silhouette.
