A new high street fashion store has landed in London (well last week, I'm slightly late with this blog).
Yep the creative genius's that have been bringing you H&M for the past however many years have upped their game tremendously with their new venture business '& Other Stories'.
Can you believe the excitement I felt when I knew there would be a whole two floors of undiscovered high street fashion - I was near palpitation... well more so because our store next door needed to look damn hot - queue a stressful day or two making the windows looking amazing ( I think I nailed it..)
Unfortunately I missed the grand opening on Friday, but I think that meant I managed to have a good look about and scope out this new brand without there being elbows in my face and boring long queue's. It was a much more pleasant experience, I even made a purchase, gasp!
Now this new brand have definitely got my attention, not only are their windows extremely cool (sorry that will be the visual merchandiser in me) their product is pretty much hitting the mark in every way, you have great cuts, unique designs, lovely fabrics, I'm sorry I am a fabric snob, no polyester this way thanks, unless vintage, this is the only exception. The prices are also quite dreamy, not saying it's dirt cheap but I think they can be classed as quite reasonable, obviously depending on what you are purchasing - shoes for example will always remain a bit pricey.
Which brings me nicely on to my next point - they have everything you need to make an outfit from head to toe from cosmetics in every shade, beauty products, to jewellery, shoes, stylish lingerie, handbags to lust after as well as the all important must have key staple pieces for your wardrobe. Let's say it could be a one stop shop for your super cool, laid back fashionista who wants crisp, clean fashion without the designer price tag.
