My Favorite H&M Dress That You Can Wear All Year Long (No Matter Your Body Type)

April 4th, 2016 by Christen


It’s always a treat to find a closet staple that you can wear all year long.  And when you find a piece that’s stylish as it is easy on the wallet, it then becomes a total win-win worth celebrating!

Recently, during a quick trip to Los Angeles on assignment with Ford, I had a little free-time for shopping and styling and of course I brought my favorite dress along for the ride!


HM Dress


This chic cotton-blend dress is the perfect piece to layer during the cooler Fall/Winter months and easy a quick and easy dress for flawless Spring/Summer fun.  The H&M sleeveless dress is available in four colors – black, dark grey, grey and powder.  The cotton-blend jersey comes with a mock turtleneck, a breezy slit at back, and deep armholes to show off some shoulder action.

So why is this my favorite dress?  It’s easy!  The curve-hugging jersey material makes any flawless look come together with ease.  Paired with a favorite leather jacket, chunky accessories, strappy heels or boots makes this dress an absolute staple for any closet no matter what size you wear.

New Look From Balmain + HM Collaboration REVEALED! #HMBalmaination

August 20th, 2015 by Christen

If there’s any hi-lo collection worth saving coins for, it’s undoubtedly the Balmain H&M collaboration arriving this Fall!

Who’s ready for a swoon-worthy fashion collection unlike anything we’ve seen before?  News first broke of the collaboration back in May when Kendall Jenner and Jordan Dunn both rocked pieces from the upcoming collection on the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards. (Since we’re kinda over the Kardashian hype, we failed to acknowledge the hype…. until today!)  We haven’t heard much about the line (set to launch November 5), since then but it looks like today is our lucky day. This morning, Elle released a new photo from the collection and it was worth the wait.


Balmain H&M


We’re huge fans of the hi/lo designer partnership trends… I mean hello? Our closets are still filled with pieces from Versace/H&M, Jason Wu/Target collections and more.  Unlike some designer collaborations we’ve seen in the past, none of the brand’s super glamorous aesthetic seems to be lost this diffusion line. The long-sleeved, embellished dress looks just like what you might find on the runway at a Balmain fashion show. We’re betting the pieces from this Balmain H&M collection aren’t going to quite as budget-friendly as the rest of H&M’s merchandise, but if everything looks as good as this we’re definitely up for a splurge.

H&M does a great job with their collaboration collections and by the looks of things, we’re in for a great collection reveal soon!

What are you hoping to find in the Balmain H&M collection? Share with us in the comments below. 

Style Files: Spring Fling To The Max With The 2015 @Toyota Highlander

May 12th, 2015 by Christen

There’s nothing I love more than a nice drive paired with beautiful weather, and when you add a flowing maxi dress to the mix – you’ve got the perfect combination for an amazing Spring day.  Recently, I purchased this beautiful chiffon frock and I must admit, I’m in love!

For me, Spring is all about flow and coverage – many Spring days can get rather warm, while the evening temps require a light sweater or jacket.  Because of this, wearing a long-sleeve chiffon-style dress is totally worth it as it covers and protects without being too hot and heavy.

Check out a breakdown of my Spring look below:


Toyota Style



H&M – CONSCIOUS. Long, V-neck chiffon dress with a printed pattern. Buttons at front and at cuffs. Tie belt at waist. Lined. Made partly from recycled polyester. ($49.95)



Earrings & Necklace – Charming Charlie

Sunglasses – Ray Ban Aviators ($170)

Swimsuits To Stilettos: Beyonce’s Teams With Stuart Weitzman and H&M

April 15th, 2013 by Christen

 Beyonce Teams With Stuart Weitzman  H&M

From swimsuits, sodas and now stilettos, Beyonce is stating her claim as “Queen of Endorsements” as she’s made more headlines earlier today with her most recent collaborations with H&M and Stuart Weitzman.  H&M has debuted a few more shots from the “Beyoncé as Mrs. Carter in H&M” campaign. With perfectly-placed flowers in her hair, she models a variety of swimsuits that she herself helped design (that’ll be available in stores later next month.)

Stuart Weitzman has just released sketches of two of the shoes he designed for Beyonce’s “Mrs. Carter Show” World Tour, which kicks off tonight in Serbia.

Weitzman has been designing shoes for the pop star for years, and she even testifies to having “literally danced a thousand miles in his beautiful shoes,” so the partnership should come as no surprise. For the latest set, the designer created Swarovski-encrusted stiletto pumps and military-inspired boots in both thigh-high and ankle versions.

Whether it’s bathing suits, custom Isabel Marant wedge sneakers or even cans of Pepsi, there’s not much this “Bow Down” singer couldn’t convince us to buy.  Are you ready for Beyonce’-mania or do you think she’s over-saturating your universe?

Cash for Clothes: Discover Yet Another Reason to Love H&M…

January 8th, 2013 by Fashion Staff


As if we needed another reason to love Swedish fashion retailer, H&M. From sleek budget friendly fashions to monster collaborations with leading designers, now H&M is going to help us be ultra fashionable after cleaning out our closets for 2013.  We all have items in our closet that would be better off in the trash bin don’t we? Wouldn’t it be great to take those old clothes and recycle them for cold hard cash?  Ok, not real cash… but H&M dollars are just as good! Starting this February, 2700 H&M stores in 48 markets will be launching a “Global Clothes Collecting” eco-friendly sustainability initiative. There’s no better time to take those bags of old clothes and make a donation to your local H&M store.

H&M will be the first fashion company to roll out clothes collecting in selected stores worldwide. Through the global initiative H&M’s customers can save natural resources and contribute to reduced environmental impact by avoiding textile waste. Any pieces of clothing, from any brand and in any condition are accepted. In return, the customer will receive a voucher for each bag brought.


H&M meets I:Collect

recycleH&M and I:Collect have collaboratively launched this program which will allow you to bring in old clothes in ANY condition into participating stores in exchange for a voucher for NEW H&M clothes. Based on their condition the articles will either be repurposed into new textile items or converted into a source of energy.

This program not only allows H&M to continue to be a leader in textile sustainability, but it also allows you the customer to participate in their global effort and be rewarded! Talk about a triple winfor you, H&M and our environment.






“Our sustainability efforts are rooted in a dedication to social and environmental responsibility. We want to do good for the environment, which is why we are now offering our customers a convenient solution: to be able to leave their worn out or defective garments with H&M, “ Karl-Johan Persson, CEO of H&M.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West & More At H&M For Maison Martin Margiela

October 24th, 2012 by Fashion Staff

Last night the stars came out and celebrated the highly anticipated Maison Martin Margiela collection with a launch event in New York!  The Maison Martin Margiela with H&M launch event was held at 5 Beekman in New York City and included a bevy of stars, designers and interesting art installations throughout the venue.  With guests like Alexander Wang, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West and more – fashionistas and fashionistos alike enjoyed a celebratory night of affordable fashion brought to you by Maison Martin Margiela and H&M.


Peppered with the deconstructed shapes and exaggerated proportions that the French fashion house is known for, the range is bound to please fans of the label. Ladies can expect oversized masculine jackets, loose-fitting trousers, outerwear folded origami-style and dresses that drape loosely across the body. The menswear is equally as covetable, with sharply-cut tailoring and coats – one that comes in white and features shearling detailing and another in two-tone grey and brown check.

The full collection will launch in H&M stores on November 15.

Maison Martin Margiela Coming To H&M This Fall

June 12th, 2012 by Christen



How excited are we that one of our favorite avant guard fashion houses is releasing a collection with H&M? (*Cue OTIS by Jay Z*)


Maison Martin Margiela is a French fashion house created in 1988 that has always followed its own path, toying with fashion norms and using deconstruction and transformation to create new staples. The further you step away from the conventional fashion framework, the closer you come to understanding what the brand is all about.


I recently fell more in love with the brand & designs during an impromptu visit to the Maison Martin Margiela Beverly Hills boutique. The avant guard Interpretation of fashion & edgy style is sure to be reflected in the H&M collection. I’m guessing if you loved Versace for H&M, then you’ll adore what Maison Martin Margiela has in store.

The collection in collaboration with H&M will be released on November 15th in select stores across the world, offering clothes and accessories for both men and women. And we’ll have your first look from the press preview later this fall!






NYFW D&D Style Featured On

February 16th, 2012 by Christen

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m not a complicated girl.  I love jeans, t-shirts and overall comfort (first & foremost). With New York Fashion Week in my rear view, I’m reminded how I came into my NYFW fashion ideas with the thought of comfort in mind.  Luckily, fashion and comfort can coexist under the tents at Lincoln Center.

Last week, as I rushed out of Lincoln Center to my next show, I was approached by photographers to be featured on the site for “Real Style”. (I had no ideas if I was going to be featured as a fashion HIT or MISS, but I was pleasantly surprised at what I found.)  Check it out and let me know what you think!

Versace For H&M Press Preview Event!

November 21st, 2011 by Christen

We’ve tweeted, talked, stalked and held our breath up until the day that the Versace For H&M collection was available for purchase…it has came, went and we’re still as excited as if the announcement was just made yesterday. Check out the chaotic excitement that was the Versace For H&M Pre Shopping Event…


First off, let me be honest – Am I a die hard Versace fan? No. In fact, I was an anti-Versace fashionista for a long time. Since the Versace for H&M collection was announced, I have had my doubts, snickers and serious side eyes on what to expect from the collection. Since reviewing the collection via online photos, etc – I still had a few reservations on what to expect from the designs in real life. But on Friday, November 18th – H&M launched a special Press Preview & Pre-Shopping event for their highly anticipated Versace For H&M Collection.

Upon arrival I stumbled across two lines – one line filled with people camping out for Saturday’s public release of the collection, and another line filled with socialites, bloggers, industry stylists, editors and more. In the blink of an eye, once those doors opened – all since of fashion civility went out the window and the ferocity of finding fashion gold became top priority. Spotted throughout the aisles were Robert Verdi, Bevy Smith, Diane Valentine and more!


Since I didn’t have any set piece in mind, I stood by the entrance and watched the H&M staff replinish the racks with loads and loads of Versace designs. Once I saw something I liked, I got the attention of the associate and asked for my size. For the most part, I got away unscathed (barely).


I didn’t want to buy pieces (in my opinion) that could easily be identified as apart of the Versace for H&M collection – because once the fad is done, then what? I wanted pieces that I could easily mix and match within my current wardrobe. Some of these looks I could easily pair with a blazer or jeans and take the look from day to night with ease. (Wearing the pieces all at once? Not gonna happen *smile*) Take a look at some of the pieces that I scored during the event and let me know what you think!

Versace For H&M Top – $49.95


Versace For H&M Leggings – $29.95



I just had to get the opinion of my Twitter family before I hit the registers…

Versace For H&M Dress – $79


Now onto my favorite finds….THE ACCESSORIES! I can definitely testify to the fact that I scored big on the accessories (because by the time I even arrived inside of H&M many of the fierce finds were already gone.)
