H&M Floral Maxi Skirt - In Person vs. The Ad

I posted recently about loving H&M's new line after seeing an ad in a magazine with Gisele in a fabulous maxi skirt.  Given my new obsession with maxi skirts, and seeing the price tag of $9.95, I really wanted this skirt!  I was anxious to get to H&M to see if our store had it.  After a few days of longing, I made it to H&M and found the skirt!  However, it wasn't quite what I thought it would be. I was so disapointed!  I wouldn't say the skirt was bad, or that it was misrepresented, just that I didn't like it when I saw it in person.  I don't know...it was something about the colors, they just don't do it for me.  Has this ever happened to you?

Fabulous, right? 

It looks so much better on Gisele...
I just don't think the colors are for me....

But I did get this fabulous bag!  The strap adjusts to be long enough for a crossbody.  It is the perfect size, not too big, not too small.  It was only $24.95.  Very 70's inspired.

  1. Huh? That's the same skirt? Gisele's seems like it's only brown and white. How depressing! It does look really cute on her. This has happened to me before.. One item I can think of is a sweater from JC Penney.. I never shop there but I kept seeing the same sweater in ads and was intrigued.. On the model it looked well fitting and kind of long. I went to JC Penney and the sweater looked short and boxy. It was really weird.. :-\ Obviously they pinned it behind her back while modeling to flatter her shape, which we unfortunately can't do in real life.
