H&M December 2010 Fitting Room Review

I know these are a gajillion months old but better late than never! Luckily I took pictures of all the tags so these are accurate prices and sizes. You'll recognize some of these pieces that  I ended up picking up in past (future?) outfits. The shorts are also really cute and the perfect length - I'm really regret passing on those!

1) H&M knee-length camel pencil skirt w/ skinny belt, size Euro 2 ($30 USD)
This skirt was showing up on so many petite blogs last fall and I wanted to hop on the train. Unfortunately I'm not tiny as most petite bloggers, so I don't know what I was thinking squeezing into this size 2. You can see a visible belly bulge but it makes my butt look pretty good haha. Overall, I felt this skirt was too tight and the length too long. Looks great on Annie though.
- Verdict: Pass due to fit.

2) H&M tweed belted and cuffed shorts, size Euro 4 ($25)
I don't know why they were still selling these in December, but now that it's warmer weather I sure wish I had bought these babies. They're the perfect fit, length, and a decent price. Now everything is either Daisy Duke-short or bermuda-length, which looks horrid on my legs. The only downside to this is how silly my butt looks - not the most flattering pair for your behind.
- Verdict: Pass, due to price (regret, regret)
3) H&M black lace back dress, size Euro 2 ($25)
This dress was interesting on the racks, I put it on and it was just "meh." V-neck with weird pouches at the sides, nothing to kill for. I am hopelessly attracted to lace like moths to lightbulbs. Excuse my indecency. I didn't need "just another black dress."
- Verdict: Pass
4) H&M nordic print cropped sweater, size S ($10)
I couldn't say no to a warm turtleneck and wintery print, and the price wasn't bad either. I thought, why not and went with it. See my styled outfit here.
- Verdict: Purchased
 
5) H&M camel cable knit poncho w/ hood, OneSize ($50)
I thought this was so cute! I was also crazy about camel at the time and became enamored with the little poofs of fuzzy things dangling off of strings. Thus began my crazy poncho phase and see outfits here, here, and here.
- Verdict: Purchased despite the hefty price tag.
I wonder how long H&M and other stores wait until they get rid of their merchandise. I mean, selling shorts in December? I kind of wish they kept them forever so that I can go back and claim some pieces that I decided against because now my closet is dearly missing them :D

I did go shopping today in Escondido and hauled a little bit from H&M so I'll show that to you tomorrow in addition to the outfit that I wore today. See anything cute recently? Share!

The poncho is so cute, same with that little cropped sweater :) I quite like that skirt though, despite the little tummy bulge (which is hardly noticeable, imo).

What a fun post to read!!! I absolutely love the tweed shorts, too bad it was so expensive. Not meaning to make you regret it, but those shorts makes your legs look ah-mazing! Love the poncho! The black dress was nice but I agree, I too have way too many black dresses, the idea of lace was very pretty though :)
Btw, I know what you mean about the pink eyeshadow looking a bit weird, that's why I blended a darker colour in the outer v to make the pink not seem never ending, i think it works quite well like that! :)xX

I totally agree with you; not to sound like a total creeper, but that first skirt makes your butt look really good lol xD

I actually like the black dress on you as well. Too bad you decided to pass on it though :)
