May Challenge Day 14: The item that was hardest to track down

Today's song: Florence + The Machine- Heartlines


You can see the rest of the Challenge list here


Nope, not some limited edition bag or antique necklace- a standard H&M dress. I saw it in a shop window and adored it immediately, went back when I'd been paid and they didn't have it in my size or anywhere near my size. Birmingham has about ten thousand H&Ms (ok, three in the city centre, there used to be four) and none of them had my size, some didn't even have it at all. I checked the Solihull one too and nope.

I kept checking and eventually found one! Hooray! This was last October and I think I may have already over worn it.

These pictures are from when Edd and I had a lovely dinner at Strada- it was on the day I found out I was pretty much onto my PGCE, so a good day.

I love that dress! Have been lusting over it, and the one in pink for ages! How do you find the sizing?

It's so annoying when the thing you want is sold out, I'd probably give up after looking in two shops! It's a very nice dress though, I can understand why you hunted it down :)
