The Dress

It was love at first sight when I saw this dress on the mannequin at the H&M entrance. The queue for the change rooms was long and my patience short, so I purchased it with the ease of knowing I could try it on at home. If it didn’t fit or look good, I’d have 30 days to return.

Well this post (unsponsored) wouldn’t be happening if I had returned it, now would it?

A little while ago, on my Bailey Schneider Facebook page*, I asked what you wanted to see more of on this blog – out of sheer curiosity! I was surprised to learn this… Fashion came out strongly – as did beauty routines and tutorials, recipes and even asking for Thankful Thursday’s to return. I value your comments, so thank you!

I’ve touched on fashion a little on my blog, but I’ve never done full outfit posts (until recently) purely because there is such a saturation of amazing fashion blogs that have set some pretty high standards.

Vanilla Blonde is my lifestyle blog and my space online to share and hopefully uplift. Fashion does make me happy, so I’ll share a few posts and do my best to reach those standards.

I’ve completely digressed away from the dress…

I love the sexy neckline, the pencil skirt affect and even the length. I completed the look with my Steve Madden black heels and a slick of Clarins lipgloss to brighten up the neutral tones.Bailey Schneider 2016Bailey Schneider for H&MBailey Schneider for Steve MaddenBailey Schneider H&M Steve MaddenBailey Schneider in H&M dressBailey Schneider in H&MBailey Schneider profileClarins Instant Light Natural Lip PerfectorSteve Madden heelsDress: H&M // Heels: Steve Madden // Watch: Nixon Queenpin // Lipgloss: Clarins // Curls created with my Glampalm wand.

      Thanks Megan – appreciate it! I’m sure you’re not giving yourself enough credit 😉 Hehe! I think the trick is to find pieces that flatter and accentuate the parts you do like -so if you like your legs, find lengths that really accentuate them. If you have a great bust, wear the right bra and find necklines that are suitable! Fashion should be fun and you should always feel good in what you wear – not uncomfortable!
