Once upon a time, in the days before Joe, my favourite shop was Topshop. More specifically, the Topshop that sits majestically on Oxford Circus. I used to take trips to London just to visit this store, and did some serious damage to my credit cards in there.
But then Joe came along, I struggled to shift the baby weight, Kate Moss stopped designing her collections and I fell out of love with Topshop. It didn’t suit me, or my lifestyle any more, and it sort of fell off my radar. Topshop seemed to be too young for me, and the trips to London just to visit the store stopped.
But that was then. Right now I have to say I am back in love with the store, and it is all done to the fabulous orange skirt that is at the end of this post. I saw the lovely Emily Jayne wearing it, and was surprised when she said it was from Topshop – it looked too grown up, to retro-inspired, to be from the Topshop that I remembered. I decided to take another look around their website, and found it is absolutely chock full of things I would most definitely wear.
So, in honour of my rediscovery of Topshop, I have compiled my list of the 20 must have pieces from the new in range. I would happily wear anything on this list, as well as much, much more.
Let me know what you think of the new range.
