Not sure about you, but Topshop and I have a fairly tempestuous relationship. We're good for a few months, then it starts getting a bit rocky - things don't fit me, things expose too much skin... Usual fashion problems. I'm lucky enough to live pretty close to the Oxford Circus store, but the trouble is so does half of the population of Japan and Spain on most weekends when they're over visiting the capital. It gets so busy so I often just can't face it, and until recently I didn't really trust the sizing enough to order online.
navy pinstripe dress, £60 / moto embellished jeans, £55 / kiss me jumper, £30 / unique silver skirt, £195 / black sandals, £28 / necklace, £30 / black satin culottes, £55
However, I got a voucher for my birthday (ages ago I know) and popped on to the site for a look at their new season collection. Last year I ordered some boots from the store, and was so impressed by the online service it gave me a new found hope. I've had some great recommendations about customer service from friends recently, so armed with their sizing info I took the plunge and went straight to their new in section.
pinstripe blazer, £100 / stripe dress, £70 / pool slides, £28 / leopard print coat, £80 / biker skirt, £40
Above are my favourite picks and I still can't work out what to spend my voucher on... Topshop has gone back to doing what it does best - creating "complimentary"versions of designer styles. Take this check coat, these miu-miu-like shoes, or this £25 studded tote which is a dead ringer to the Alexander Wang, Rocco. They've even created a much cheaper version of the Whistles stripe dress that everyone craved last year, here for £70. The pinstripe dress is also a total winner, this is a firm contender as it's perfect for work. The pool slides will no doubt be a favourite with the fash pack too as they're so incredibly cheap!
Hopefully my little round up has helped you pick out the best of the bunch, if any of you have any of the above let me know as I still can't decided what to buy...
