Shop Spotlight: Topshop

Topshop Spring Summer 2011 Lookbook

I haven't shopped in Topshop in years. Mainly because I can't be bothered to wrestle teenagers and tourists away from the rails, but also because I was fed up of not finding clothes that I really loved or were in my size (yeah, 10 size 6 dresses on the rail, totally reasonable). So I've been rather shocked recently to find myself browsing around Topshop more and more - and liking it!

Let's face it, I'm (sadly) a bit out of Topshop's target market of 16-24 year old students, and with boobs and hips, their clothes aren't usually my friend. But recently I've been amazed that the clothes are fitting, hemlines are below my knees and I can zip things up! Now, don't get carried away, their clothes are still cut on the snug side and some items of clothing should not be worn unless you have model like proportions and are young enough to have an NUS card, but I can see some changes. Even Olivia Palermo has been rocking some Topshop pieces on the red carpet and at couture fashion shows (and rather well, I might add).

I've actually fallen for quite a few items in the stores at the moment, and OMFrickinG might actually buy something. Here are my top Topshop picks (obviously all dresses, as I have an addiction).

What do you think of my picks (and what should I buy)? Are you a Topshop lover or a Topshop fighter?



  1. Ooh, love your dress picks, especially the first one. I love yellow! I haven't done too much shopping in Topshop lately, mostly because I can't really afford it. is it me or do their dress prices keep going up? Agree that olivia looks fab in that yellow Topshop dress btw.:)

  2. I Wanted the striped pencil skirt shown above but it sold out. It's now on EBay for double the price!

  3. Their prices have definitely gone up, but so have so many shops (asos especially). I can't believe that the stripy pencil skirt is already on ebay for double the price! Crazy. Cx
