12 Reasons Why & Other Stories Is My Current Favorite Shop

Oh dear lord, I have a confession to make.

I’ve been trying hard to save my pennies, but I fear I am about to sin. I can’t help it. I’m in love.

I was out and about in the city a while ago and decided to kill some time in the shops. I was looking for the perfect white blouse to pair with my skirt from Comptoirs des Cottoniers (see last outfit post!) and my search led me into & Other stories. A very dangerous path, so I learned. Their pre-fall collection is everything my sartorial heart desires and more: tailored pieces, a bit of lace here and there, the perfect striped tops, jeans in the washings of my dreams and my gosh THE SHOES! In two seconds time I became convinced that my life will not be complete without penny loafers and masculine derbies this fall. I don’t know what to do with myself.

This wouldn’t be a true love story, however, if it didn’t come heart breaking choices and desperation. Because there’s simply no way I can puzzle my shopping budget in such a way that I could afford ALL of these piece (I tried, in vain)s, I had to choose my one favorite piece. Can you guess what item came home with me?
