The incredible shrinking “Lorelai” dresses
I don’t know what happened to H&M’s basics dresses this year. Last year they cost £7.99 apiece and are still going strong! This year they cost between, £12.99 and £14.99 and they came up shorter to start with and then proceeded to shrink in size. Clearly this was very unhelpful.
Honestly I am sad about this dress, I am in love with the colour khaki at the moment (and let’s be honest, who isn’t? – have you seen the highstreet? It’s saturated!) and yet this dress makes me antsy. Is it too short? Has it rolled up? Can this guy see that I am in fact wearing grey cycle shorts under this get up?
It’s an ongoing drama which quite honestly takes away from the purpose of a dress which would cover you and allow you an easy and freeing summer. It’s even worse with a capsule wardrobe because you know what these clothes need to last you, they need to be somewhat of an investment and I feel a little let down by this dress to be honest. It’s also shown me that come Autumn what I want to look into is smart workwear, I want longer skirts and dresses, that are structured and stand out pieces. It’s my dream, whether or not that comes true however is another thing completely . . .
