They say nothing haunts you like the things you didn’t buy—or something like that, right? Regardless, I know this feeling of regret all too well.
A couple of years ago, I fell head over heels for a cover-up from & Other Stories—specifically, a blazer. In a light-beige hue with an oversized silhouette and a woven finish, the blazer would make for the perfect accompaniment to my off-duty jeans-and-jumper outfits. It would also be ideal as a chic throw-on over printed dresses and pleated midi skirts.
Maybe I was waiting for payday, or perhaps I’d recently bought something else. Whatever the reason, I decided to wait a couple of weeks to treat myself to it. However, as you’ve likely already surmised, it sold out before I could get my hands on it. As such, I spent the rest of the year pining after something I knew I couldn’t have. What was particularly agonising was the fact that seemingly every influencer I follow owned it.
Thankfully, my forthcoming wardrobe began to preoccupy my mind, and soon, my blazer despair was a distant memory. At least, it was, until just recently. Upon scrolling through & Other Stories’ new-in section, I found it: the cult blazer. Of course, I snapped it up. I already envisage myself wearing it with light knitwear, jeans and midi dresses come spring. There’s never a bad time to buy a classic staple item, so if you also want to secure the & Other Stories wool blazer before it inevitably sells out again, I suggest you do, pronto.
