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.

Kirsty Mitchell’s Wonderland

Wonderland : Lady of The Lake

WonderlandI’ve been following Kirsty Mitchell’s ‘Wonderland’ series for a while now, only last year did she finish her epic 4 year photographic series. It is nothing short of amazing what Kirsty has created under a minuscule budget and small windows of opportunity. Every prop of costume was created, or sourced and utilised by Kirsty herself: she was designer, stylist, location scout and photographer all in one. You can see more of the series, behind-the-scenes photos and purchase prints at Kirsty’s Website. I hope you enjoy her creations as much as I do…
