RIP H&M playsuit...

Tuesday, August 24, 2010


urgh! I look really burnt in these photos.. I did get a tad rosey but not as bad as these photos make out! Im pasty white now after being home from Cyprus a few weeks and with not even glimpse of sun at home my tan is pretty much non existent..
I love this playsuit, and Ive worn it before on my blog and I actually planned to wear it this weekend for my best friends birthday with a black waistbelt and my black brogue wedges and faking it with some Rimmel Sun Shimmer in colour Fair.. but as I ranted on twitter the other day it shrunk on a 30 degree handwash cycle in my washing machine.. how is this possible? Im getting really sick of clothes saying you can wash them at 40 and when I wash them at a gentle 30 they shrink... grrrr!
Heres how I styled it on holiday which it seems is the last time I will get to wear it..

RIP playsuit..








with temperatures of 38oC I kept it simple, comfortable and most importantly cool..




my hair was kinda insane on holiday, I was able to let it dry naturally which meant it had this crazy kind of kink/ wave to it..which i really liked.. unfort my hair is far too thick to let it dry itself at home.. my hair would still be wet three days later...


Playsuit: H&M, timepiece necklace: ASOS, brown satchel bag: Primark, Gladiator sandals: Topshop, bracelet: Magnetic therapy. Gold Ring: heirloom from my granny.


So im reached at 500 followers yay!! Im planning a BIG giveaway to celebrate!! There will be at least 4 prizes up for grabs and you can pick which prize you would like if you win..
Once I have secured all the prizes from the companies Ill put the full details of the giveaway up!
Hopefully in the next week! :)

  3. you look so pretty! oh no, i hate it when that happens! what usually works for me is i put the shrunken clothes back to wash, or soak them in the bath then stretch it into shape. you should try it, there is nothing to lose.

  7. What a pretty playsuit! How annoying that it shrunk! I normally wash my favorite items with cold water to prevent shrinkage or damage.

  8. Oh don't you just hate it when that happens?! I'd drop H&M a email and let them know - might be a quality control issue they need to know about?

  9. It IS super cute. You know, if you go into Google, there's a tab at the top left called "shopping" and it will look for the item anywhere on the net. It's super convenient.

  20. How long have you had it? I'd definitely try & return it - if you followed all the washing instructions etc, then it's a faulty item! Give it a go, what you gonna lose?!
