I have never been a big fan of H & M because of their sizes and how "European" they are. I just always thought they fit funny and a size 2 is the smallest they carry?? I didn't think there was any chance of me fitting into a size 2. But their size 2 is similar to a size 0 or 00 in the U.S. - even though it says on tag the U.S. size is a 2 as well as the European size 2. Not even close. We petites know a size 2 is way too big in the states. But apparently the Europeans cut is much slimmer and smaller (maybe because they all walk everywhere?)...nevertheless- I scored and found some great deals.
The tops that have XS- all fit really nice. I got 2 casual shirts to wear with jeans, this peach ruffle shell (which I absolutely LOVE), this pencil skirt, blazer and I found a cream sheath dress which fits so nicely- I can't wait to wear it!
This is definitely a step up from Forever 21. Quality is not GREAT but it's much better than Forever 21 quality in my opinion. Love both for the price points but you do get what you pay for. But how can I pass up? Found so many cute things and the price tag wasn't so bad.
VERDICT: Definitely keeping the entire outfit- love it!
I have a feeling I will be making more stops at H & M.....:)
