What I do hate though is the way they get their size ratios in store - I mean, 10 size 8's and then 20 size 16's. What about the rest of the sizes!??? That annoys me. And whenever you ask a shop assistant its always the same robotic reply: "whats on the shop floor is all we have"

I do love the designer boutique, I think Emma Cook is doing it at the moment. Really lovely stuff, but a bit out of my price range...

I moved away from the UK 4 years ago and I am now 33 but while I was at college I did frequent Topshop like everybody else. I think I remember buying accessories/shoes a lot more than actual clothing though.

I always preferred Miss Selfridge myself!

A few years ago, I only wore Moto jeans from TS! They do some really kool t-shirts as well but H&M do it just as well and cheaper at that! I like mixing my high street with my high end. I am more likely to be found in River island or Mango or M&S if I am slumming it on the high street.

TS is okay but only for adults that like the clone look if you know what I mean. I rarely ever pass through there unless to cut through the shopping centre! LOL

p.s the prices are just to funny at times. why would i spend that in there!!

@ Fab f_f

i would never spend decent money on a bag in TS though, if you want a cheap leather bag and need an highstreet option - pop into Marks and sparks or Rivel island.

DP really? I stopped going in there for clothes two years ago. They use to do some decent stuff which was different but after that, they just became a really bad copy cat version of Topshop for the older generation. I only go in to look at the jewellery but i will have a look at some clothes the next time i go past it


Off topic slightly, went into Warehous and everything was all Sienna Miller inspired and the clothing was terrible.Tried on a lilac top and ot looked like some one had ran through the bushed with it

i bought a really nice dress from ts at the weekend, sorry it isnt on the website so i cant post a pic. It is a greyish pale blue colour, goes to just about mid thigh length and has black straps and a black bow around the hips (sorry for the crap description) i used to love topshop but this dress is the first thing iv bought there for about 4 months. I go in quite a lot because my bf works in the metrocentre branch but nothing at all has inspired me for so long. I also find some of their prices ridiculous. 100 for a bag -from topshop?? why? for high street shopping i usually go to h&m, or for basics and wardrobe fillers you can't go wrong with primark's prices (even if i do have to sedate myself before I go in can't deal with the crowds!!)

I like most of Topshop's clothes, its just like someone said earlier though, you see so many people wearing the same things as you, ( not so much of a problem where I live, because there isn't a Topshop here, but I go to the one in Chester which is near). I bought a really nice skirt and top there earlier today though.

im totally hating topshop at the moment! the prices are high, the quality is bad and i dont care much for the designs and colours.

but i will still buy the jeans as i think that they are the only decent things in there. i bought some lovely dark indigo skinny fit jeans and i love them.
