ÅLAND has had a location in Brooklyn, NY, for a while now, but as of yet I've not managed to visit it.
Sooo.. I was super excited for the NJ location to finally open. (The American Dream Mall is quite cool).
The store is a good size, but if you're familiar with the ÅLAND website (Korean version) you'll quickly notice that few items are stocked in store. This location felt like it had a heavier focus on gifts, and accessories, rather than clothes.
Admittedly, this was a slight bummer for me, because I was really excited to see all the fashion brands they carry in person.
Great to visit for:
K Fashion Accessories
K Drama Merch
I purchased a sweater from the brand Stockholm Syndrome
It's free size, and the internet seems to agree that its unisex.
The knit is heavy, so it naturally falls downward and stays there.
It fits cute as an oversized sweater, but I'm most excited to style is as a sweater dress (I'm 5'3). The sleeves are long, but I personally like how that adds to the oversized look.
Please excuse my messy closet. It's a work in progress ^.^
Thanks for reading!
