The Edit: & Other Stories

 

They describe this place as a “one-stop styling destination filled with collections from three design ateliers in Paris, Stockholm and Los Angeles.” so there are a few points of view, all urban, going on here. It’s not really that different from Mango or Zara, but there are some pieces I haven’t found at either place, so there you go. And for some reason almost everything I picked was designed in Stockholm, except one in Paris — go figure!  This perfect oversize gray coat is the kind of thing I want to wear with everything right now, especially my beat-up tee shirts and jeans, so that I can feel somewhat polished and chic.

This red silk blouse can work with so many things. I’m wearing mine with jeans all the time. And I love how this one has no visible buttons, plus it also comes in a slew of good colors.
These good lace-ups are giving me some major Ann Demeulemeester vibes.
 
 
A muted purple puffer jacket feels so fresh in a late 70s-early ’80s kind of way. And if this shade is too much for you, you can always get the black version.
I’m all about an oversize scarf and this one comes in 15 colors!
 
 
Every holiday season I want a pretty dress and this slinky velvet one looks comfy to boot.
 These cute little hoops have a slight Indian look are such a good everyday choice.

  1. Love to browse this site. The price points for interesting clothes are very good. Haven’t purchased anything from there yet. I wonder if anyone can comment on their customer service? Returned anything and how’d that go, etc.? I’m a reluctant shopper until I get some solid reviews on customer service — having had a couple of bad experiences with other online retailers.

  2. I think this place is way different than Zara or Mango. Mango and Zara are more similar to H&M. Or they are between this place and H&M. & Other Stories (or just “Stories”) has a higher price point, but I think that’s because the quality is much better. The sweaters and coats are GORGEOUS and almost always made from natural fibers. Stories is more experimental, their editorial POV is generally a little edgier and unusual than those other stores. I think they take more chances–for better and sometimes for worse (they have some weird stuff)–than Zara or Mango. Or, like the latter, they don’t just make knock-offs. Not everything they do is that interesting, but a lot of it is. They footwear is more conventional, too, and although expensive, doesn’t always have leather soles and/or are made in Italy (a sign of better quality). All in all, I think they are of a measure more luxurious, better made, and more thoughtful. I love the cut of their clothing, too, although their bottoms run quite small. I have an issue fitting into their size 12s. I have only had good experiences with their customer service–they are quite accommodating–but I do find that their website, along with that of their sister site, Cos, runs a little wonky, and they charge $6 for returns. I am glad they got rid of returns through FedEx, who won’t accept a package unless you schedule a delivery. Now they use UPS. H&M, Stories, and Cos all have the same parent company, fyi.

  3. I really like their site as well. I purchased a few things a couple of months ago and was pleasantly surprised with their quality. A very All Saints kind of vibe. I loved everything (fit was TTS), but ending up returning one item (black vegan overalls… don’t know what the hell I was thinking.) The return process was simple and if I recall, credit back to my PayPal was within a couple of weeks.

    Does that help, Debra?

  4. Yes, FH, very much!!! Just the kind of detailed info I like to hear about an online shopping site. Thank you for taking time to respond to my request.
