Opening & Other Stories Ghent

The & Other Stories store in Ghent has been open for a few weeks now, but I still wanted to share about the opening night with you. A short train ride took Inez and me from Antwerp to Ghent, where we arrived a little early so we could go for “dinner” first. Dinner being at McDonalds – so classy – to save some €€€ on food to spend on clothes later. That’s how we roll. I made her walk to the Glaslei with me just for Instagram purposes and then we met up with Naomi and Marlies to discover the world of & Other Stories.

& Other Stories is a fashion brand that wants to help women tell their own story through their personal style. The collection includes everything you need to create a new outfit, from head to toe. My eye fell on a beautiful fresh green zip pencil skirt and the Clare Vivier co-lab. The perforated leather shoulderbag drew most of my attention. Naomi and I also had some fun testing the beauty products and I still regret not brining the Floral Momento body scrub and lotion home. My dry winter skin could use some love! Eventually I left the store empty handed, because I kind of sort of spend way to much on new sportswear earlier that week, but it was hard to control myself. My birthday is coming up though… .
At the end of the evening the photographer made me pose about ten times with the hundreds of balloons and then the girls and I made our way back to the station where we arrived two minutes after our train had left. Just perfect. We sought and found comfort in Starbucks and eventually arrived home an hour late, but very, very satisfied. 
Thanks for another great party PURE!
  • love those pink tulips!

  • You look absolutely gorgeous Nikki! Red is your color for sure. This looks like a fun event!

  • Going to a store opening sounds like so much fun! I went to a store opening for work, but I think it would be fun to go as a blogger and get pictures of taken of me (rather than me doing the picture-taking). Those pictures of you with the balloons are so fun!

  • It sounds like a fun night, even if you did miss your train right at the end!

    You did well not buying anything. I think if I got invited to a store opening I’d be so overexcited I’d do quite a bit of damage to my credit card, haha! 🙂

  • jaaaah, al kom ik amper in Gent dus ik ben tevreden met die in Antwerpen 😉 haha

  • Looks like a super pretty store! Will have to stop by. And okay, very weird but I had to double read it when I saw Naomi & Marlies because my best friend’s name is Marlies haha.
