Hidden Gem


I really don’t think the pics here do it justice–but ya’ll this dress. I wore it the other day to an event at Saks and got literally 100s of compliments–even salespeople wanted to know where I got it, if it was Chloe and some even if they could grab a pic of it. Flattered? Of course. And the best part–this is an H&M dress. Yes, the embroidery is beautiful, it’s a soft cotton, and it flows amazing–and it was less than $100 at H&M. There are hidden gems to be found at every “fast” fashion store. The secret to finding them? You have to look thoroughly–be it in person (not just the front of the store) or online (not just the front page). You have to pay attention to material, cotton count, etc. And you have to be consistent–most of the “fast” stores don’t have set days for new clothes and the inventory can change every week–so you may have to glimpse through more occasionally (and that’s only if you’re shopping regularly, don’t need something don’t look–just don’t cross it off your list to peruse!) . Does this sound like work? I guess so–but the pay off is you can get lucky and find hidden gems like this one!

I’d love to know–what are your “fast fashion” secrets and big steals?

Wishing us all a Happy Monday! xo RA

  1. I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours lately, yet I by no
    means discovered any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth
    enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers
    made good content material as you did, the internet will likely be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  2. Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could get a captcha
    plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and
    I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!

  3. Hello I am so thrilled I found your site, I
    really found you by mistake, while I was searching on Google for something
    else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like to say thanks for a marvelous post and a all round interesting blog (I also love
    the theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at the minute but I have
    saved it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time
    I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the great work.

  4. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets
    I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
    twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to
    your new updates.
