I like to divide my life into two sections. The time before seeing Kate Middleton's wedding dress, and the time after seeing it. Odd Andersen / AFP / Getty Images Like everyone else who watched the royal wedding, I became obsessed with the Alexander McQueen dress that fit Kate like a damn glove, and dreamed about the day I could wear such a flawless gown. Carl De Souza / AFP / Getty Images Well, my dear sweet internet friends, that day has finally arrived. This week, H&M launched a wedding collection and one of their new pieces is my dream knockoff of Kate's wedding dress. BEHOLD! H&M / Via hm.com Okay so it's not exactly the same — it's cream-colored instead of white and doesn't come with a 10-foot train, but for only $299, it's pretty gosh darn close. H&M / Via hm.com It also comes in sizes 2 through 14. Here's a side-by-side comparison for any of you naysayers out there. Odd Andersen / AFP / Getty Images / H&M / Via hm.com The lace, the flared bottom, the button-lined back?? It's too much for my gentle soul to handle. H&M / Via hm.com Whether you're engaged or happily single, you owe it to yourself to buy this dress, even if you just wear it while lounging around the house.
