My first experience with H&M’s sister brand, & Other Stories, was back in February where I found myself in the Stockholm store, quite literally drooling over the sleek and slimline bags. Instead of splurging in Sweden (and possibly jeopardising my baggage allowance), I picked up a dainty pair of earrings, check them out here, leaving a definite yearning for more once I returned home.
Finding myself on Regent Street last week, the same sense of effortless and timeless style washed over me as I entered & Other Stories. Still a somewhat reserved trip, I was obviously in a beauty state of mind from the looks of my purchases. Mostly because I was beyond impressed by their beauty range; rows of blusher, bronzer, nail polish and eye shadows enticed me in, leaving me swatching like a man woman trying to find the best picks. Settling on a muted yellow for my nails, take a look at my thoughts so far, and a CC concealing quad for my face (really becoming a completion addict, it really is the secret to any great make up look!).
A sweet little perk to my shop was a surprise free gift, a gorgeous smelling body wash and lotion duo. It really is the little things that can make a retail experience that much more memorable! Not to mention the friendly staff and comfortable (still stylish however), atmosphere, I would suggest a visit to any & Other Stories newbies out there!
Check back on Sunday for a wishlist post (very end-of-the-month-and-not-quite-payday appropriate), and in the coming weeks for my views on CC quads (and sticks!)
Have you tried any of the & Other Stories range, let me know any hits and misses of your own!
