Like most people I know, I have a thing for Isabel Marant, which is why I practically hyperventilated when I walked into H&M yesterday and discovered this dress. It’s not an exact copy (that would be tacky), but there’s a definite Marant-esq feel about it. The pattern, the drop waist, the frilled skirt – I can imagine myself wearing it in the city, on the beach, in the country – it’s a go-anywhere dress. While H&M can look cheap (I’m not knocking it, that’s what it is), you can occasionally find a true gem of a dress – the black maxi dress with frills at the bottom that looked so D&G that a very chic Italian Fashion Editor begged me to tell her where I got it – the lemon yellow Grecian dress that always gets comments – and now this. H&M – when you get it right, you SO get it right….
And if it gets cold….
P.s. Excuse the pic, my phone deleted all my apps and all I’m left with (until I reload) is a standard camera…
