i’m wearing: fashion star h&m maxi dress, h&m clutch (you are going to be sick of these since i bought them in THREE colors), forever21 ring, DSW wedges and the sunglasses are DVF c/o sunglassesshop.com

remember how i told you guys that i hadn’t worn any of my fashion star purchases? well, this dress was one of them. i LOVE LOVE LOVE the print, but it is VERY hard to walk in. so i’m thinking i may have it made into a mini dress. what do you think? it would be awesome to use wendy’s idea of adding some faux leather to it as well! so what do you guys think of my new DVF sunnies? these are my first pair of cat eyes! i feel so glamorous in them!

and now for the exciting news…one lucky stylish housewife reader is going to win their own pair of cat eye sunnies made by polaroid (see below) courtesy of sunglassesshop.com! thanks for reading and good luck!

    I love this dress, and I can understand it can’t be all that easy to walk around in it! I am still on the fence on do I shorten my DVF maxi dress to the knee or keep it long…I feel the pain! What a great giveaway!

    That dress is amazing as it, but would be SO cute in a mini-length too…you definitely have the legs to pull it off! Love the new sunnies too 🙂

    Wow, don’t you look stunning in this dress. It’s gorgeous and I can’t believe I didn’t know it was available at H&M. As much as I love the long dress, I think you may get more use out of it as a mini. I say, go for it!

    LOVE this dress!! It looks gorgeous on you but I could see how it would be a lil difficult to walk in since there seems to be no slit. I think it would look amazing shorter as well!
    BTW-Loving the sunglasses

    Oh, wow!!! So excited to see this post of my girl in one of her fashion star pieces from h&m! Stunningly gorgeous! Could you imagine if I had ordered this in time?…at 5’3″, it would have looked like the train on my wedding dress! Love the mini skirt idea. I think that you should wear it this way a couple more times and then make it a mini. You will have a one of a kind dress!

    Gorgeous clutch and amazing print on the dress.
    Maybe you can get it tailored/alter it yourself to include a small slit so it’s less difficult to walk in? I hate uncomfortable clothes. They end up hanging in my closet and not being worn.

    I’m following by e-mail. I also love the idea of making your dress into a mini and adding leather detailing! Or you could add a slit up the side or back to make it easier to walk in.

I actually found you through a search I did about birchbox (because that’s what I got as a present for mother’s day) and I found on of your blogs about it and read on…and on 🙂 Love the dress, would love to enter the contest and thanks for the inspiration!!

    PS I love H&M and all of your posts about mani’s. I too do my own and LOVE it – sometimes I wish I had a blog so I could show mine off too haha. Enjoy the weekend!

    I saw those clutches yesterday, I didn’t get any because I have a similar one from Zara that I haven’t worn yet – but the turquoise one is really tempting!

    I didn’t see the dress in H&M – love it on you, it’s so fun and I’m a huge fan of maxi dresses, especially in summer.

    No. No. No. don’t make it a mini! Put on some super tall stilettos and see if that works better. This dress is FIERCE!!
