NYE: Solid Gold H&M Dress

I haven’t been out and about on New Year’s Eve since 2004. I never meant for it to be that long, but I’ve spent the past 7 years either in church or at home when the clock struck midnight. I’m still finalizing plans to bring in 2012, but I just kept coming back to this gold H&M dress last week while finishing up my Christmas shopping for Camden last week. The dress was on clearance for only $5 from it's original $24.95 price. My shopping buddy purchased it for me for Christmas and had the cashier cracking up with “Most value meals at McDonald’s cost more than this dress”. I was thankful because I was already over my $50 Retail Rehab budget. I put together a couple of potential options depending on where I end up this New Year's Eve.
Here’s the dress. It’s simple, a little sheer and clingy, but cute with the right body shaper:


I added a black shrug, black platform sandals, and accessories for a simple, elegant look. If you are cold natured like me, you could also add some black tights and black booties.

I added black leggings, black and gold platform pumps, and accessories. Slightly off the shoulder and a red lips gives the dress a super sexy look.

I added a black blazer and black pumps. This look would also work with a black or red bootie, but I went with a red lip. A red purse would also dress this outfit up.
So what do think? Which outfit do you like best?


  1. I likey, lots of potential outfits, not bad for $5 =)

  2. Hmmm...I think I'm going to go with the last outfit. I'm a blazer whore so I'm automatically drawn to them, lol. All your options are cute though.

  3. I love the leggings and the blazer! It's so festive (with the gold metallic) and also so chic with the black accents. I hope you had a fantastic New Year's Eve!

  4. I like all of them! Great price on the dress!

  5. All of them! Great find and you added different pieces for different looks. One outfit with so many possibilities!
