a perfect marriage.

i can't tell you how long i've been lusting over elbow patches.
when i first started blogging last fall, bloggers were
flooding the blogosphere with photos of their
pretty cardigans decorated with elbow patches.
where do you get such an uber cool thing, i asked?
of course...h&m.
land of all pretty things that are not available to me here.

so, imagine my joy when i found this dress on my trip to hilo.
and.
it.
had.
stripes.

double score.

(dress, mink pink; accessories, accessory swap)

  1. I've roamed the world for cardigans and I came across some at Urban Outfitters. Definitely on the pricier side. And I hear the H&M website is about to go up for the states soon. Very cute outfit. The elbow patches make me melt.

  2. NO H&M!!!!!! I would die. Literal DEATH! If you ever want anything, I can check the 4 that I have here in the city and grab it for you.

    xo.

  21. Oh wow, great dress! The shoes look perfect with it! Don't feel alone the nearest H&M to me is in Atlanta and that's just mean. So near, yet so, so far...

  22. At long last, elbow patches can be yours! Adding them to other items might not be that difficult actually, perhaps a DIY?

  23. You're so beautiful! I absolutely love this outfit, and that lipstick rocks. I'm loving the elbow patches! I have a sweater like that from H&M :)

  30. Adoring the styling. Dress is so cool and purse can't even tell you how much I am loving your purse.
    I understand the feeling. Here in Miami We only have 1 (ONE) H&M and its a tourist area where its super crowded all the time.

  37. No H&M? The horror! At least you have online shopping to look forward to soon :)

    But I kind of love this dress more than most things I run across at H&M anyway, so I'd say you're doing fine!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I know your pain. The closest H&M store from here is 4 hours away. Being married and especially with kids I'm not making the trip just to go shopping.
    Beautiful dress and love how you styled it!

  39. Man, wanna do a clothing swap? Ok, I'll take this dress. What do you want? ;)

    Seriously, I'm way into elbow pads, too and this dress is absolute perfection because it's striped, too.

  41. It definitely is a shame that we don't have H&M (or Zara) here in Hawaii... and to make things worse, it's not even accessible to us via the interweb. :/

    I really love this dress of yours, though. Great find. I will always be a fan of stripes and the elbow patches are super sweet too.

    xx Love & Aloha

  42. G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S!!!!! that dress is so special & unique (i love anything with stripes), the bold shoes, cute purse are the best accessories and hair feathers!
