I knew when I stumbled across this ruffled peplum blouse online I knew I had to have it. Unfortunately it was sold out so began the process of calling the Chicago H&M stores to locate it. Fortunately the second store I called, had it in my size and it was half off! They held the blouse until I could come in to pick it up. It was my second recent experience with H&M in which I was blown away by their customer service. Another occasion, when I was looking for a sweater I had seen during a previous visit, an associate helped me scour the store and their back room until she was able to locate it! It just goes to show that sometimes high street is just as good or better than high price:)
I just love mixing feminine pieces like this ruffled, peplum blouse with tougher pieces like black ripped denim. It keeps me from feeling to frilly and has a boyish charm that I love. And how cute is this clutch? Its actually a crossbody with the strap stored inside. I totally fell for the gunmetal hardware and light neutral color. The details makes it seem so much more high end, its hard to believe it was under $25!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
