From the Fitting Room: H&M Fall 2011

With the exception of H&M's recycled collections, I haven't found anything worth buying there in years. A couple of weeks ago, I happened to be downtown with some time to kill and thought that I might as well check it out. Imagine my surprise when my arms began to fill up with pieces I wanted to try on. I was shocked. Below are the items I decided to purchase. One word of warning though, many of the price points are higher than usual H&M pieces, but I really feel like the quality seems much better on most of these items as well.

Printed Shift Dress in Size 2: I love the print on this little shift dress and it looks and feels a lot more expensive than it it. The size 2 is still a little roomy, but it looks great with the orange swing jacket below. Price: $39.95.

Orange Swing Jacket in Size 2: I love everything about this jacket! The elbow length sleeves, the gorgeous color and the great fit. I love all things orange for the fall and am sure to get tons of wear out of this. Price: $59.95, paid $48 with a 20% off coupon.

Printed Bateau Top in Size 2: I don't usually buy two of anything, especially not in the same print, but I love this top. I broke my own rule because I love this style of top and usually have a very hard time finding ones that fit. I think this item would be best for petite girls or someone with a fairly short torso. Price: $24.95.

Knit Striped Skirt in size small: My usual XS fit at the waist, but was super tight around my hips so I decided to size up to a small which provided some extra length as well. Price: $5.95.

Poncho Sweater in size XS: I wasn't sure about this poncho, but when I belted it I thought it had great potential. I was thinking of pairing it with jeans or the orange skirt below. Price: $19.95.

Orange Knit Skirt in size XS: No matter how hard I tried I couldn't get this skirt to photograph well. Must be the dressing room lighting. Again, I love the color, perfect for fall and it definitely fit true to size, maybe even a bit snug.

I also picked up a couple of skinny belts and these pants in a size 4. I also plan to head back to the store later this week to see if either this jacket, which I also featured here, or this coat have come in yet. I'll post reviews as soon as I can.

I love the bateau top. Do you think it would work on taller/longer toros gals? Ahem, me?

I think it's worth trying. I could totally work on you even though you are tall.
