I have no problem with wearing head to toe topshop - I have such problems finding clothes for my petite frame and height, and Topshop is honestly the best place on the high street for this where I live. While I love the occasional designer purchase, I prefer having a wardrobe full of pretty and affordable clothes that fit well, rather than stuff from places such as Warehouse and Oasis who do not cater for small people!!

I think the key is to stick to items that are not too 'high fashion' - if you are a dedicated Topshop follower like me who is in there on average twice a week, thats pretty easy to do....

IMO, Topshop rocks

No I think you missed the point of my post-that unless you put your individual take on it, you can look like anyone else.

I know what you mean, as I live down the road I'm there all the time. But you have to be careful with some pieces more than others.

Oh yeah, but i guess that is the same for every shop - high street or designer really. I like to think that my love of accessories makes me look totally different to anyone else who might have the same jeans and top on.

It is how you wear the clothes in the end

I think topshop is hit or miss sometimes. It's a fun shop to go into because there is really something for everyone. Some people do go overboard with it, like pucci said before, you can't walk down the high street and not see a trendy girl wearing at least one item from Topshop. It is so successful because it is affordable and relatively unique for the high street, compared to shops like River Island which can look really tacky.

It is becoming way overpriced. I get 20% discount so it's not so bad, I guess.

I think you can definitely look original and shop exclusively in Topshop even.

Well I love Topshop and can't wait to wear my new outfit below this winter:




A printed puff-sleeve pussy bow blouse and a grey pencil skirt...I will accessorise my outfit to make it 'my own' - but I love the blouse and skirt and don't care if other girls are wearing them as you can't escape people wearing the same clothes these days...there is not really a 'unique style' per se which is what the Frankfrut school argues. Capitalism controls what you wear and you can not really escape it.

I like some of the brands they have in the Oxford St store, like Motel and Paul's Boutique, but the rest is pretty much...rubbish.

I guess they are doing it again ? according to http://www.topshop.co.uk/promostores...live=yes&promo= There's a Preen for Topshop and a Markus Lupfer for Topshop coming soon... I've got to keep my eyes open for this..

The sales were awful! I bought 1 dress that was reduced from 38 to 15 [got an extra 10% aswell ] but that was just about the only thing that caught me eye.

I love topshop's clothes but I just cant afford to buy there very often. Im just a student and dont have very much disposable income -surey students are the target consumers? or at least they were.

Anyway, I sent topshop an email saying how disappointed I was that the prices keep going up and up. they email back with this:


Thank you for your email.

We were sorry to learn of your comments.

Please be assured that your opinions are very valuable to us and your feedback
will be passed through to the appropriate department.

Kind regards

Topshop Online Customer Services




Ive no doubt that my little email will mean nothing to them but if more people did the same then maybe they'd actually rethink their prices.

I like topshops jeans there my favourites...maybe that's just because they do a brilliant petite range. I don't like much else from these days =[. I don't know i just think it's gone down hill.
