I’m a sucker for a H&M sale email

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a sucker for a sale email, which basically means I’m always tempted by something (sales are just all the time these days! What happened to twice a year?)

I’ve also mentioned that the H&M sale makes my little heart palpitate with joy and excitement, for there is many a bargain to be found.

A few weeks ago was no exception. They reeled me in with a 50% “flash sale” email. Not even any pictures. Just a red block and 50% in white text.

Well, who am I to resist?

It just so happens that, in succumbing to their not very imaginative at all marketing, I discovered my new favourite dress. This isn’t a term I use lightly, as I have a lot of favourite things, but this is just wonderful. Better still, it was reduced from £24.99 to £12.99.H&M floral dress

The dress has one of my much loved features – shirring. The cuffs are shirred, the shoulders are shirred and the waistline is shirred so you can create that poufy blouson style that is so very flattering.

The colours are delicate but the print is bold, and the fabric is soft and flowing. I wore it immediately out to lunch with black opaques, black suede Jeffrey Campbell-a-like lace up shoe boots and a leather jacket. I loved it so much that I fell asleep in it after lunch (ok, this may have been wine rather than love related) and I already can’t wait to wear it again.

It’s only failing is that it will need ironing. I don’t really do ironing. But I will make an exception on this occasion.

Thanks, as always, for reading! x
