& OTHER STORIES

SUPER COOL SUPER RAD. YOU WILL WANT IT ALL!

I loved everything in the whole shop, especially this green tiger print jumper, but it was too expensive for me, so unfortunately I only left with a head band and bronzer, but thats okay because it’s my new favourite brand and I WILL GET THAT JUMPER EVENTUALLY, it’s conveniently located at the top of Regent Street, I went to explore and window shop (thats not because they are too expensive but rather my student lifestyle, in fact its very reasonable) and left a dedicated fan, you suggest you go have a look! 

 & Other Stories is H&M’s newly launched love child, its caters to the hipper COS  lover and is pining after the Acne Obsessed crowd. It’s been branded by the media as a more luxurious and expensive H&M, but I went to have a look and the prices really aren’t that bad, here’s what I thought and bought!

They have a lot of offer in just one store: a full range of make-up, a pharmacy, a great nail varnish selection and so many accessories, it was a bit over whelming, I didn’t know where to look, and to make it worse there was a sale!  The favourite thing I saw was this green print jumper. I love the simplicity of the designs, and the daring colours, its really cool but not try hard. The designs are a mixture of simple cool cuts, futuristic graphics and classic aspects that make them timeless and wearable for the long haul. Check out there website and go visit! Its a really great experience and any fashionista will find something they love. Check out the BBB Tumblr for more pics and inspiration.

EMILY WEBBER’S LONDON SHOP FRONTS

LONDON SHOP FRONTS By Emily Webber.

This project definitely deserves some of your time, it’s less Boutique and more street, a project by Emily Webber. I like her, she clearly loves to shop, but it’s not Oxford Street she’s on, but instead turning our attention to the connivence stores and wonderful fonts, colours and names that litter the London landscape.

This amazing project illustrates the unspoken hero’s of the London landscape and creates an background for the homesick Londoners and paints a picture of London life for non locals. The London Shop Fronts have been a labour of love by digital project manager Emily Webber from Hackney, for the past 5 years she’s been posting photos to her blog, and has created a wonderful archive of London’s most underrated and overlooked characteristic, the local shop. You can tell she’s a London native by the time and energy she’s spent showing her appreciation to the shops that line the streets. Check out her website and her Twitter.  

***Don’t forget to check out the BBB Tumblr.*** 

Ever since moving to London I’ve been fascinated by the sheer volume of connivence stores, and the names! Oh the names, the names!! I have a folder on my phone that’s just dedicated to great shop names, here are my few of my faves:
