Topshop is beyond huge and I've decided that I need to visit each section in a series of visits to really take it all in.

I shopped around for about an hour and was super conservative in what I picked up to avoid looking like the crazies who trip over their shit. Check out my twitter for more insight into what was going on. Here's what made it to the fitting room...

Photobucket
Tank: $28
Jeans: $80

Photobucket
Blouse: $70
Harem pants: $65

Photobucket
Dress: $65
Belt: my own

My overall perception of Topshop in person is that it's not as low quality as EVERYONE is saying. You know the lines at H&M? There's DIVIDED and a bunch other labels and there's the pink label. Pink label has the nice blouses...the more mature trendy stuff. Well, most of Topshop looks like that. So maybe it seems expensive, but the designs are more advanced, warranting higher pricing. No??

Pricing, fit, quality? What do you think? Dish it, honey! :)

Love the 2nd pic. You could do so much with that top. I would pay $40 for a cocktail ring. And trust me, it would be one of the most baggin cr ever!

Lady A! I deleted the part about the cocktail ring that you're referring to. I tend to post and then edit more :/ But i hear you. It WAS a sick coctail ring. haha
I def co-sign on your opinion about the top.

I def agree... I went back a second time and was more impressed. It's a bit overwhelming at first though.

Quality isn't bad but to me a lot of the prices are a bit unreasonable...

You look too fab by the way. xoxoxoxoxox

@mademoisellemichelle: thanks girlie! :)
@lauren: yay for going back and feeling differently. i was in their like...it's not that bad. but i dunno...a couple other people said that it seemed cheapy. I just think people may have built it up a lot in their head... and thanks for the fab comment!!! :)

I agree with you about the quality not being as terrible as a lot people had voiced, but I second Lauren in that the prices are slightly over the top. At the end of the day, Topshop is incredibly aesthetically pleasing. Being the cheap-o that I am, I'm impatiently waiting for their sales rack to reappear.

You are funny! I want to get this one that cost $98 on Bebe.com....I don't think I'm going to do it...I rather get a nice couple of sandals and have enough money for burger with CHEESE, lol.
