A Brandy Melville Haul

27 March 2016

When I first heard of the Brandy Melville concept, I'll admit I was skeptical. First thoughts included: "But one size can't fit ALL?", "What is the fuss, all the pieces are pretty basic?" and "How am I supposed to work out the cost of it, if the website's completely in DOLLARS?!?" My sister was (and still is) a massive fan, so whilst strolling along the King's Road in Chelsea, I walked past the shop and thought I'll just pop in and have a look. Things took an unexpected turn and me and my housemate ended up spending a good hour and a half in awe of the clothes, wanting to buy at least half of the stock, trying things on and battering our bank balances - whoops.

There aren't really any words that can describe just how soft these garmets feel and this softness probably made up for 85% of my reason for buying what I did. The Babe Top is the ribbed cotton collared black and cream striped crop top, and I love the tomboy-ish feel to it. The Ollie Sweater is in what they call a moss green, and is a very finely knitted jumper that I've already had too much wear out of. As you can see these two items do crease easily because of said softness, but that doesn't really bother me too much.

I really debated over purchasing the Katherine New York Cap, mainly because I'm really not a hat person - don't get me wrong I love hats, but I hardly own any and wasn't sure whether I was cool enough to pull off a baseball cap. But as a lover of New York, I hard to part ways with my cash for this, as again it is super soft and protection from the sun in summertime is essential... Sadly I can't find this cropped pale blue knitted rollneck online for it's name, but my god the fit and cut of this is SO flattering, I think it may be my favourite piece in the haul!

Although these are fairly basic pieces, everyone needs something plain in their wardrobe when it feels this soft and I'd say the pricing of everything in Brandy Melville is a fair bit lower than Topshop, so there's an added bonus. I am a size 10 and although the sizing of the printed trousers I tried on was a bit iffy, I'd say the tops/jumpers would be able to fit a UK 4-12? Admittedly this limit in sizing is a shame, but for now I am very content with my purchases.

What do you think of Brandy Melville? And have you pruchased anything from there? I'd love to hear your thoughts so pop a comment below.

  1. I'm still sceptical over the 'one size fits all' claim but still desperately want to buy something from there! I've never actually tried any of their things on but oh man they are a whole new level of softness. I love the blue jumper and stripey top, everything from Brandy Melville is just so pretty

    1. Yeah I don't think all the clothes will really fit everyone, particularly bottoms, but I'm really impressed with the tops - so maybe start there for your first purchase? It is a whole new level of softness isn't it, their clothes are so dreamy to touch haha. Glad you liked this post, thanks for stopping by :) x

    1. Thanks Adele! I love the colour of the green too, but I think I'd call it more of a khaki than a moss green as they've described it. Aw thank you, so happy to read you like my blog :) x

  6. I love the blue turtleneck and the green jumper. I think Brandy Melville can be a bit hit or miss, though the one size fits all concept is interesting!
