This morning I went to H&M's new offshoot store, COS which is a completely different shopping experience to your usual H&M fashion scrum. Gone are the rails and mountains of clashing prints, replaced by sleek blocks of colour, attentive staff offer assistance at every turn, and discreet art gallery style lettering on the walls directs you towards the changing rooms. Add to this the retro couches with stacks of trendy magazines and you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd wandered into a designer boutique. Susie Bubble went instore last week, and tried on two lovely dresses. They also have a good men's line which I've reviewed on Brandish. See after the jump for dressing room pics of me trying on the COS collection.
Considering my wardrobe is a smorgasbord of clashing vintage prints COS' simple and stylish pieces are exactly what I need to balance my look. The prices are about the Topshop mark, which isn't bad considering the quality and originality of the collection. I tried on their mustard skirt, grey cashmere shirt and white dress. One thing I must say is that at COS a size ten is baggy on me, and there's no way I'm anything less than a size ten, so if you're going to pay a visit take a size smaller as well as your usual size.
