Last week was Black Friday. Thanks to the help and guidance of wise fashion bloggers, I was able to browse through many sales from brands that I love. Nothing really caught my eye until I arrived on the & Other Stories website.
I’ve been in love with this brand for as long as I can remember and this love grew even more, as you can guess, when I moved to Sweden. This brand really has the Stockholm vibe stuck to it. Unfortunately, I never got to buy anything when I explored the Scandinavian stores, but on this Black Friday, I finally got to get my hands on those simple, quality basics. So I’m doing a little haul to show you the items I fell in love with.
Among the discounted items in the Black Friday selection, I put my hands on three: the most comfy wool-blend tee, a cosy wintery scented candle, a lush-smelling body scrub, and some beautiful golden bar stud earrings.
I have to say, even though this brand belongs to the H&M group, it’s definitely a premium brand. The packaging is so thoughtful and visually satisfying. It was the highlight of my Saturday morning tu unbox and discover all the pieces.
They are very simplistic and that’s what I like about them. I think they are the kind of earrings that you don’t notice – until you do. They kinda look like barbel piercings which adds a heavy rock’n’roll vibe to them. I love them.
The scent is inspired from the brand’s atelier in Stockholm, it has a strong, cosy, wood scent. I really enjoy it and I think it will be perfect to warm up under my plaid on these upcoming chilly winter nights.
It smells so delicious and it looks like a dense quality scrub. Of course, I had to take a bath and tried it out: it’s luxurious and rich, it reminds me of chestnut and brown sugar. I just LOVE it. And it left my skin so super soft!
I am always chasing neutral basics these days and I really found something there. The cut is perfect – I don’t know if I should wear it outside or just as PJs: that’s how comfortable this t-shirt is. I also love the colour. This kind of grey goes with everything and it’s a very sophisticated winter tone.
