Unique shops/brands you should have a look at!

Nowadays there is a wide variety of clothing and different styles. New unique independent brands are becoming more popular instead of buying from the usual common high street shops. Below are some of my favourite independent labels which you should have a look at. Maybe change up your style and you might have items no one else has.

Minted – Glasgow

If you’re in Glasgow then visit this store. If you like designer vintage sportswear or apparel then this is the shop for you. The shop has recently moved to 55 Parnie Street.

The shop sells lots of different designers like: Stone Island, Supreme, Adidas, Stüssy etc. The layout of the shops is very clean and basic but that’s what is so good about the shop. My friend about 3 years ago showed me this shop and I’ve gone back ever since. They usually post on their Instagram and Facebook showing what kind of clothes they have coming in or selling. The branded mens/womenswear they sell is always great quality and have reasonable prices for the clothes they sell. Recently, they’ve started selling there own merchandise. The other day I bought one of their t-shirts: only £28

It was only the other day when I was looking through ASOS Marketplace and found this brand. A lot of my the brands I choose on this blog post will be from ASOS Marketplace.They make clothing based on street fashion. They sell uni sex clothing.

The clothes are quite expensive but the quality and detail that go into them makes it worth the buy.


Sisterhood is a boutique that brand the company as Eco-friendly. The clothes are made for women to make them feel more independent and confident about themselves. “We are projectors of optimism, good vibes and female empowerment!” (taken from their page).

I really like this boutique as the clothing is similar to Bershka or Zara. The clothes are reasonably affordable and they do worldwide shipping so definitely go check out the website or there Instagram @sisterhoodthe .

Items I WANT but do not need…

Being in town for university on a daily basis is tough. Walking up Buchanan Street everyday, trying to resist every urge to go into every clothing shop and not to buy a single thing is very very difficult not just for me but for any 18 year old student. Recently, I have stopped myself from buying anything, and if you asked any one of my friends they would all say this is very hard task for me.

For this post today I am going to share the items I would love to buy right now! But, unfortunately I have to save my money.

  1. Urban Outfitters –


I am in love with this jacket. But it costs £59, so that is my problem.( link for it, is above) I was walking past the Urban Outfitters shop when I saw it in the window and wanted it straight away. I would say I already do have quite a variety of different jackets but this isn’t like any I’ve had before and would be nice for spring/summer.

2.  Zara

Of course Zara has to be on the list..

The words on the picture says it all really. I really want this two piece outfit from Zara. If I remember correctly the top is £17.99 and the bottoms £25.99. I haven’t tried it on yet but I love the style and the pattern of the clothing. This is part of Zara’s most recent new collection.

3. GUESS – backpack

Don’t really have the money to be spending £45.50 on a bag. But I love this pink camouflage pattern. About a year ago I got a backpack from Accessorize that cost me £50 and I’ve used it once. I like this bag because it is different. It’s a good size and I actually like the style of it.

4. Zoeva Brush kit

This brush kit looks amazingg. I know quite a few people who already have it and they have recommended it to me. I love the rose gold on them and makes the brushes look very professional. However, I think I would feel a bit guilty if I spent over £100 on a make-up brush kit but I really want it. I also don’t think my mum would be too happy either. Hopefully in the next couple of months I’ll be able to get them.
