Stories time


I’m not sure how this label’s escaped my attention for so long, but it seems that as soon as I started looking, I couldn’t stop! I’m talking about Swedish store & Other Stories. As you will know I’m a huge fan of shopping online as it allows for lots of time for browsing, shopping around, and mostly it’s child-free. It’s much easier than trying things on in a changing room while one of my kids either tries to open the door, or ends up crawling around on the floor! So I read about & Other Stories and thought I’d check it out.

I always go towards simple, clean lines in mostly block colours, with fabric and yes, sadly comfort and practicality are important to me too. So much of these styles are what I would called my kind of thing, so with a sale on I quickly ordered a few things just to see what they were like. I loved all of it, and have since told a few others about the website and they’ve ordered stuff too. My mum is now a fan too – see there is my theme of mummy-daughter clothing going on now as well.

So here’s what I went for. A classic, easy black sundress with vest top and drawstring waist. A cream-coloured jersey peplum top (which I think has now sold out), a pale pink cardigan and a gorgeous pair of black leather slipper shoes. The shoes will be great for autumn, and though it’s a bit early for me to get out of my flip-flops, I have a job interview this week (eek) so it was kind of necessary!

If I was putting together a wishlist, I’d definitely go for some of the jewellery, like this insect ring, the ring necklace or thread bracelet.

Have you ever browsed or bought anything from & Other Stories? It reminds me a bit of Whistles, which is one of my faves but a bit pricey for me for everyday, and Cos, which I’ve never shopped in but always like to have a look online. What are your favourite sites for window shopping?
