On the Run – the £14.99 H&M dress gets an outing

You may remember that I showed you this H&M dress a few weeks ago. Then I had to wear it with thick tights but today – well, that was a different matter.  I tried it with a couple of different belts but decided to stick with the one it came with.  I also put it with my Dune gold wedges, which you can see better below. I was in charge of all getting all three out of the house by 7.45am today hence the hurried shot (not that we achieved it).

I was styling this morning and the dress worked well for me in so far as it was comfortable, not too exposed and it had a decent length to it. At the fab price of £14.99 that made me very happy! You can take a look at the dress on the H&M website here

I have to say, if someone had handed me this dress and told me that it came from Reiss or Whistles with a much higher price tag, I wouldn’t have necessarily disbelieved them.  I have a summer dress from Reiss which I may wear tomorrow and despite its price, it’s still made of polyester.

The lady with whom I was working this morning has said that she will happily feature on the blog, so I hope to bring you some photographs when we have got her Wardrobe where we want it to be.  She has a very curvy bust and I know that the clothes that  I wear don’t suit a curvier figure, so it will be nice to bring some variety and hints and tips on brands that may work for anyone with more of a bust.  Believe me, I understand totally how difficult it can be to find tops that work – but they do exist.

I am just bracing myself for the addition of two further children to the fold this weekend – our nephews, who are 8 and 3.  Fortunately I have finished my course of anti-biotics and alcohol is now permitted. Result! (Their parents would be totally with me on that one by the way).

Remember, my Stella & Dot competition closes at mid-night tomorrow so there’s not much time left to win the fabulous Palamino necklace.

    Does anyone out there know of a fashion blog written by a 50 something blogger. I am 56 and feel that some of Beth's looks are a bit on the young side for me. No offence Beth. Your bog is great.

      I have just started my own blog gpugpicks.blogspot.co.uk and am 57(ouch!) I haven't been brave enough to put my face on the screen yet though! Quite happy to post my clothes – who knows I may get braver.

    Hmmm, I must admit that I don't. There's one called "that's not my age" which is good and a book called "Grown up Glamour" by Caroline Cox which you might like to take a look at. I will hunt around and see what I can find. How about leading the way and starting one yourself?

      You should have seen what I had to chuck into the bath before taking that photo it was full of books, mags, even shoes that our eldest had left in there but oddly I don't remember the tea pot at all.

    Lovely dress and a brilliant buy for £14.99! Feel a trip to H&M coming on…

      Pink flowers won't be for everyone but it comes in grey and another print too. My only concern with the plain grey was whether it would reveal its true cost more readily!

    That is a corker of a dress and a right bargain to boot! Can I ask what size you are wearing? Love the bog, I mean, blog btw!

      So pleased you like my bog! I was wearing a 10, so up one size from normal as the elasticated waist (sounds attractive huh) is quite tight.
