& Other Stories is the lastest shop that is sending fashion bloggers into a frenzy! Why? Because it’s the more exclusive and hipster-ish sister of the well loved brand H&M.
I took a visit recently to the London store. It makes for a pleasant shopping experience indeed. It’s all set in a bright open planned two storey building just off Regent Street so it’s very easy to find!
Going inside the shop, the items are all set out as if waiting to be photographed! It really seems like a fashion blogger’s dream. I would say the style of the clothes is very simple, sometimes quirky but mostly has that edge of sophistication. There is definitely something to suit everyone’s taste.
A tip – I would try visit & Other stories earlier in the morning. If you arrive later in the day then you have to be prepared to not find your size if you’re size ten and under. It seems the smaller sizes get snapped up very quickly!
I ended up buying myself some toiletries which were actually rather good buys! I’ll be reviewing these very soon so watch this space.
I really liked the look of the shoes on the website. Nothing really appealed to me in person though. I think because the style reminds me of Zipia which is a Korean wholesalers. It felt the shoes were a bit overpriced for what they were.
In fact if you know Zipia’s style, then I would say & Other Stories is on par with that. Even though shipping is far more expensive with Zipia, somehow I think I would rather spend my money there! Well I’ll give & Other Stories a few more goes! I think their beauty items are worth checking out though which was a complete surprise to me.
