I know Brandy Melville is generally for teenagers — and I am not one. I also know that there are probably more things not to like than like about the store — it's the opposite of inclusive, both in sizing and representation. But despite this, I really like a lot of its pieces — and for fall, there are a few I just can't resist.
Obviously, it's super-affordable, which is nice when I just paid rent but still want a few new T-shirts. But perhaps what draws me to it the most is that none of its pieces try too hard — and a lot of them even look vintage (which is what I tend to tell people something is when I don't want to admit where its from). Plus, its trousers, layerable dresses, and cozy basics tend to fit my petite frame pretty well considering its one-size-fits-all sizing (Short girls, this store low-key has pieces made for us!).
