Don’t you love it when you find something new and exciting and get to share it with all your friends? Well, RAWAN has done just that.
& Other Stories is a new brand created by the masters of high street fashion, H&M. Relatively new, with it’s flagship store on Oxford Street (right opposite French Connection), it is one of my new favourite high street stores.
Whilst being affordable, it is absolutely on trend and it’s pieces have that vintage feel; an Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe (basically super cool) style to it. The brand excels on clothing, accessories, jewellery AND shoes! What more could a girl want in one place? It also has an abundance of what I like to call, ‘necessity buys’, which are plain t-shirts, strappy tops and vests, plain maxis, etc. Basically, those items which you always need because they go with anything, are easy to throw on, and for some reason you can never find the right one in your wadrobe!
Here is my TOP 10 reasons why you MUST head down to the store or check it out online www.stories.com
A gorgeous selection of dresses which are casual yet sexy.
This Item Best Worn With: Black Ankle Strap Heels, Gold Bracelet
2. SHOES – I love their unusual shoes, they are sexy and cool and can add that glam to your work outfit to take you straight out into the night. I also love their range of chunky heels, which have a total 60s feel to them, and are so comfy you could dance in them for hours.
3. SPAGETTI STRAPS – Spagetti straps are perfect for the summer. They are super sexy yet feel totally casual. Rihanna is also a huge fan (check out her River Island Collection) – and we all know she is the Queen of Cool! They also perfect to be worn under blazers, leather, and cropped jackets as they don’t gather around the shoulders!
Their underwear range is just delectable. Cute and comfortable!
This Item Best Worn With: White Lace underwear set
5. HAIR ACCESORIES
Item Best Worn With: Denim Shorts, Spagetti Strap Top
I believe belts are so important to an outfit, they add sophistication, and are perfect for joining colours from your trousers to your top. & Other Stories to a brilliant range of plain, beautiful, belts in all colours which can be worn again and again.

7. LION’s HEAD ACCESSORIES
Its July, the month of the LEOs, and Cara Delevigne has one tattooed to her finger. So while we aren’t that brave, and iPhone case, hair band, or bracelet will do for us perfectly.
Item Best Worn With: Everything
8. NAIL COLOURS
A fabulous range of bright, beautiful, fun colours. The “Paisley Sky” is my particular favourite, as turqouise brightens up just about everything. All pastel are fantastic though, and if you feeling adventurous why not try a rainbow of pastels.. Why choose one when you can have 5?
Item Best Worn With: White, Grey, Black
9. PLEATED SKIRTS
A wardrobe essential, pleated skirts go together with any blouse, t shirt, or crop top creating a diverse amount of looks. Perfect for the office when its warm outside, and even better for a evening date giving off an air of sophistication and class.
