I love the Topshop Fifth Avenue store because it’s big and perfectly organized into different sections with noticeable themes. I loved the way it was organized because I could easily find exactly what I was looking for, and could easily be drawn to a certain section based on color schemes, patterns and certain styles. As soon as I walked in, I noticed pastels and metallics right in the front, which is where I headed to first to pick up a metallic slip, which was exactly what I had in mind for my dream metallic slip dress. The second floor was organized in a similar fashion, and was where I felt like I could find more of the basic, foundation pieces to fill in the gaps of my wardrobe, where I noticed the first floor was more focused on trendier items. Then up to the third floor I went for a lookout for shoes. There was an amazing range of options for the transitional season, and I took my time browsing through them all. Even the sock options excited me. I took everything I chose out to the personal shopping department, where the service was so on point. The staff was super helping in bringing me extra options that they thought would be great alternatives for my original choice, just in case. I appreciate that so much, since I love to get second opinions. Especially in a store like Topshop with unlimited options. I knew I wanted a look that focused on color blocking, so I layered a top underneath my slip dress that had bright pops of a red-orange hue. I found this top up in the TopShop Boutique section on the top floor. I loved that this section had nearly its corner section on the floor, for it made the experience seem much more intimate. Personal shopping brought up the idea to color block even more with my shoes, so i was presented a pair of yellow open-toe mules, as opposed to the black ones I was originally going to get. I’m glad I decided to go for the shoe with more personality. I’m going to make a statement with this look for sure. All thanks to Topshop Fifth Ave Personal Shopping.
My gal pals are all inner rock n’ roll stars. We love going to see concerts at Baby’s All Right. We love shopping together. We love leopard, studs, fur coats, skinny neck scarves, victorian age blouses that cinch high up on our necks. But most importantly, we LOVE to share our clothes. Luckily we are all super tall and share the same shoe size. There will definitely be times where I haven’t seen my leather jacket for over 6 months, but that’s the amazing thing about friendships. Your friends are around at all time when you need them (even when you need that leather jacket). Right now, I’ve been doing a lot of online shopping. TOPSHOP is my go-to. And this season, I’ve got a REBEL REBEL thing going on under the tree. Ankle boots that’ll make any boy swoon. Multi-colored faux fur coats for glam nights out in Manhattan. And of course, my personal favorite: a good Western belt, because it’s always the last thing I throw on my favorite pair of high waisted jeans. Flattering classics with a twist. Plus, knowing you can borrow is always a plus.
And now you can create your very own TOPSHOP “WANT LIST” and share it with your friends. Maybe you will get just what you wished for!
BECAUSE THE NIGHT:
UNDER THE MISTLETOE:
Topshop right now is totally nailing the retro mod look. Bringing back what I loved from watching The Brady Bunch, to what I imagine would have been in Twiggy’s closet. Right now I’m obsessed with anything cropped and flared, like this perfect little jumpsuit. Only complete with a mustard turtleneck (my fall staple for layering), and some cheeky leopard oxfords. Made for dancing, or simply waiting for your girl tribe to show up. For now, I’m ready to soak in that cool fall breeze.

So much of my inspiration comes from the 70’s. That mustard wallpaper on my grandmother’s bathroom walls. Those extra high waisted suede minis, cinched extra tight for tiny waist effect. Those long hooded parkas for nights running through the rain. TOPSHOP is bringing it back hardcore for festival season, and it’s my dream 70’s ensemble right within reach. Who doesn’t love a good bare shoulder?! I’m all for a neutral palette, and a swipe of my deepest red lipstick. Let’s go back in time for a minute. We’re only missing Mick Jagger.
