1. Wool Double-Breasted Coat sz 2 - $49.95, item #051404. On my wishlist (but no rush) is a classic, quality camel coat. I don't plan on finding it from H&M, but this coat is a great value for those looking for something affordable (esp w/ the coupon). Sizing runs big and is shapeless when un-belted, but looks decent when belted.
3. Double-Breasted Thick Knit Coat, sz 2, $59.95. Here's the good ole sweatshirt material again. I think this would look better on someone taller, as a menswear-inspired mid-thigh length coat.
4. Side-Ruffle Blazer, sz 2, $49.95. The ruffle is cute, but sleeves are way too long. I was so impressed by the quality of my orange swing jacket from H&M's "trend" line, this one from their regular line just doesn't compare.
5. Thick ponte knit circle skirt, sz 2, $30 (?). Tons, tons of orange this season at H&M. This skirt has a tiny waist (~23" for sz 2), zip closure, and a swingy bottom. I'd love to see it on someone who can rock retro style.
this ensemble? I know some women try to never repeat an outfit, but on rushed mornings, I am grateful for tried-and-true pairings that I can reach for with eyes half open.

Readers - Any good H&M finds? For $20, should I go back for #2 & do a DIY hem?
