Thought about buying this snood, but I'm afraid it might be itchy.

I'd like to buy a blouse too, do you know if the items are usually true to colors?

I've found most of the colours run true. The snood looks really soft, to me. I'm loving their winter accessories this year - most seem like good quality too.

Not had much luck with blouses though - I find many to be much larger than the size suggests, and the buttonholes on three items frayed immediately. The really thin fabrics are not worth the prices, in my opinion.

If I really want to buy a blouse then I'd better order a size down! I like their chiffon ruffle blouses but if you say the quality isn't worth the price, I might change my mind... they're generally not cheap.

Don't worry too much - I do have a few of the chiffon blouses and they are very lovely! Some are thinner than others, just look out for the more evidently see-through ones. The buttonhole issue was on shirts, for me - a cream military style shirt and a blue cotton shirt. They are gorgeous to wear though, but it still makes me angry.

I've tried quite a few of them at the store, too, so if you have anything in mind, i could give my opinion of their thickness/quality?

......also, it's only my opinion lately that Topshop are upping their prices a bit too much for high street mass produced clothes. I still adore their pieces though, and the blouses are my fave thing at the moment. None seem worth their current prices, but this is just my personal peeve with them, they are still much more preferable to most other high street stores.

After all the anticipation and wanting it so bad I sold mine in the end. I found it really uncomfortable because of the slouchy shoulders and the 3 quarter sleeves. In general I just though this is not a good winter coat for me!
Hope you get on better with it.

Bought the oversized black diamante sweater:
http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/st...e&pageSize=200

Vampire fang ring (have wanted something with a bit of a dark edge for ages, but not a skull, so this worked well)
http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/st...ents=category~[210010|208556]&noOfRefinements=1

...and an angel wing bracelet/cuff which seems to have dissappeared from the website.
