I heart you Monki



Today I stumbled upon a clothing website called Monki
I had briefly heard of this in the past but I'd never bothered to check it out before
until today
Oh my, I couldn't believe my eyes
Pages and pages of the most beautiful well designed and on trend clothing
I found my self in love with genuinely every piece
Which never happens
So i was even more happy when i looked at the prices
The clothing is actually AFFORDABLE
I am so used to seeing an amazing dress and finding out it was like £300
So I was so happy that I had found what seemed like the most perfect clothes shop ever
Until I realised you cannot buy it in the UK
I cannot believe this
It's like why have a website showing us what we can have and then tell us
"Oops sorry no you can't!"
I think i now understand what it's like for people who don't have a Topshop where they live!
So I thought I would show you some of my favourite pieces from the site
Which is basically what i want my winter wardrobe to look like.
Chunky knits, loose sweaters, rolled up chinos and some velvet dresses!
So here is the website, take a look but I am just warning you be prepared to be disappointed if you are from the UK or one of the other Monki deprived countries!
Oh and please do tell me if you know of any info about Monki coming to the UK

Yes Monki is amazing. It is one of my favorites too. It's swedish (which I am too) and it just opened in Copenhagen where I used to live so I am hoping for you it will open in the UK.

I got the navy blazer and the striped wool sweater and they are just really cool!!!!

Not many people know that the brand is owned by H&M who also own COS, Weekday (which is my favourite - a little bit edgier than MONKI) and also Cheap Monday jeans.

I do like Monki & the store concept & I definitely think it would appeal to the masses in the UK.
