Small But Perfectly Formed


My Stories

& Other Stories has quickly risen to become one of my favourite high street stores.

The last time I was in London I was very impressed by the physical shop, as it felt like a far more exclusive store than it actually was. It's been some years since I was last in London however, so I have been appeasing myself with weekly visits to their website instead.

It's become my go-to shop for affordable accessories, such as this gorgeous little chain bag I recently picked up in the Cyber Weekend sale. I'm a sucker for faux snakeskin and this little black bag is just perfect. I'd landed myself a couple of great digital design projects and decided to celebrate with this purchase.


As well as bags I have picked up quite a few lovely pieces of underwear from the shop in the past too. They do beautiful triangle bras and mesh bodies, of which I have several.

But this little bag is my fave purchase so far. It's absolutely tiny though and I do have to carry a tote bag with me on wet days so I can carry an umbrella, but it's so perfectly formed I really don't mind carrying an additional bag. I can only hope they eventually open up a store here in Scotland at some point too.
