John & Fish’s Beautiful Birds

I think as I’ve gotten older I’ve noticed things more: like trees and butterflies and wild flowers and all the different types of birds, and wildlife around me, things that have been there all the time but suddenly I’m noticing  them more. Recently I’ve been putting rich tea biscuits on my windowsill for the birds and it’s amazing to see them up close, pecking away. To see their gorgeous feathers and little hints of personality. Even Sparrows have their beauty, and you’ve got to agree, these are most definitely stunning!…

While scouring the web for inspiration and nice things I came across & Other Stories. I have never heard of this brand before, but Miss Moss introduced me to their utter amazingness! It’s not in a showy way, it’s a subtle amazingness, but amazing nevertheless .

At first glace I thought them to be a  conglomeration of  Topshop, H &M and a brand like Calvin Klein or Balenciaga, they bridge the gap between high end and good prices beautifully. I think once you hit a certain age the timeless quality of what you buy becomes more meaningful and satisfying: a simple style, a good cut, quality materials and careful craftsmanship. & Other Stories seems to typify this for me, quality and style, a winning mix.
