Over the past couple of months I got some new bits to update my winter wardrobe and I wanted to share this little haul with you. As I work at H&M, most of the clothes I buy are from there, as I'm always surrounded with great deals along with an additional employee discount!
Included in this haul is a little dress in wine red (perfect for Christmas or New Year's Eve party), that I ordered on Amazon from MissLook. It's my first time ordering something from this brand and I have to say, I'm very pleased. The shipping was super fast (even though we're in the holiday season) and it arrived within one week; I didn't have to pay any additional custom's fees or taxes and the quality is pretty great.
The dress is made of a very soft cotton and I can't wait to wear it! This model also comes in many different colors but this season it's all about red, so I decided to go for this pretty wine red color. It has a side pockets and the model should also be flattering on all the pregnant ladies - I think it's a great maternity dress! No, I'm not pregnant again, so I'll be styling this dress with a belt over my waist as a detail and to accentuate the waist.
The next items are all from H&M and I got them on promotion (50-70% off)!
This is a very thin but warm down feather jacket. It's ideal when worn underneath the coat (when outside is super cold, coats sometimes just aren't enough, so this jacket will give you that extra layer and keep you warm). I got it discounted from 49.99 € to only 15€.
I also got two pair of pants (these are a bit more lightweight but in this season I wear them with tights).
The last item is a calf-length shirt dress that wasn't on sale but I did use my employee discount to purchase it. My colleague talked me into buying it as it was the last one left (and in my size).
We had a Christmas party coming soon, so the idea of wearing this for that occasion, dress appealed to me. It's definitely not my style, I usually go for shorter and more sparkly things for parties but I decided to go for it anyway, try something different! I felt very sophisticated and classy.
Here is one photo from our Christmas dinner, from my instagram. We surely did have fun that night! I wore my dress on top of a black lace bodysuit and paired it with suede ankle length booties. I also wore my new black puffy jacket as an extra layer and a long beige coat on top (yes guys, it's freezing in Italy these days!).
I hope you liked my picks! Share with me your recent purchases.
