Wishlist: & Other Stories

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you..."
-Maya Angelou


Tonight I thought I'd do a post on a fairly new brand from the team behind H&M, & Other Stories.

It's a slightly more costly brand than H&M, but still has the same minimal yet quirky style. There is currently only the flagship store in London's Regent Street (which I will get to one day!), but that doesn't matter, because the & Other Stories website is incredible.

As the name suggests, the collection is all about telling a story; 'In The Pink' or 'Sporty Chic' are all brought together in one click. The site looks stunning, with almost a mood board of both items on hangers and artistic fashion stories. 



The collection was built around the beauty section first, in which there is a huge variety of skincare, make up and bath products. The clothing is refreshingly simple and classic, and the price range varies but I was pleasantly surprised at how affordable some of it is!

Here's my favourite picks from the site:


Shirt with Detachable Collar in Cranberry   £65

I have an unnatural attachment to dark red, wine coloured clothing, and this is no exception... would definitely keep the cool androgynous collar on!



Abigail Lorick Oxfords in Indigo   £79

I have a ridiculous amount of brogue shoes but these are amazing, updated for summer with a transparent plastic upper. Also come in Ivory.



Platform Ankle Boots in Black   £95

I love the edgy zip detailing, and the nice chunky platform means even I should be able to manage walking in them!



(Yes! It's only 7 quid!)

I had to read this several times before the price sank in, what a bargain! Also fits in nicely with the monochrome trend, too good to be true?



Satchel Bag in Warm Ivory   £45

Claret and cream is a really big colour combo this season, and this preppy satchel bags encompasses it perfectly.



Multi-ring Bracelet in Gold   £10

The jewellery collection is really sleek and minimal, with simple chains, shapes and studs: right up my street!



Lip Colour in Prunella Pink   £12

The range of lipstick and eyeshadow colours is huge, and although £12 is more than I would normally pay for a lipstick, I might have to scrape the funds together for this gorgeously gothic purple.


I would encourage everyone to check out & Other Stories, it's simple and refreshing and effortlessly stylish, and there's something for everyone. I can't wait to hopefully order something soon!

Have you tried anything from & Other Stories?

Thanks for reading!

Sophie.
