Or more precisely, to San Francisco of course.
Over 10 years ago I started wearing a lot of clothes by ONLY and VERO MODA. Only is youthful and street-y (great for the high schooler I was) and VERO MODA is a bit more polished.
Later we got to enjoy VILA, which is more of a feminine bohemian chic brand. I could definitely relate! PIECES is the accessories brand, that recently has started adding clothes to the collection as well. Cosmopolitan chic came to Finland in the form of Selected Femme/Homme in October 2008.
I've shopped at these stores for years, and am now sad that I cannot. These brands are available at online shops like asos, but it's just not the same as walking into the actual store...

The company behind these brands (and a few more) is Bestseller, a family-owned company founded in Denmark in 1975. The company has already expanded across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Canada.
