& Other Stories dress and loafers
There’s never enough time to shop, and this seemed especially apparent as I tried my best to rummage through as many boutiques as possible during my limited time in Europe. The greatest discovery was & Other Stories. Owned by H&M Group (who owns H&M and COS), the brand was launched a year ago in Europe and will be available to the US via its first store in New York and online (they currently do not ship to the US). Feminine with a bit of an edge (think printed dresses, chunky knits, comfy jumpsuits), the quality of its products are great, and prices fairly affordable. I’m wearing a dress and loafers I got on my trip, and I can’t wait till the end of the year when I’m able to purchase online!
