Fashion Wishlist | A Topshop Problem

a Topshop problem

Topshop is one of the high street beloved fashion shops, for me, it hadn’t always been one of my favourite shops. However, that is all changing and now there is a Topshop problem.

Growing up, I’ve always been really aware of Topshop, I mean after all that where all the cool kids go to buy their cool clothes. There was a period when I would shop in Topshop religiously, not because I thought I was one of the cool kids – but because I wanted to be one of the cool kids. There was even a period before that while still at school when I thought I was too ugly and small to shop in Topshop; that what all the cool kids said to me at school. (Once I left school, I soon got over – especially when my mum told me it ridiculous and of course, I could shop in there.)

During that period when I would shop in Topshop religiously (just ask my husband, there were many moments when we first met where I would drag him round a Topshop store!) I would happily spend a fortune buying clothes. Maybe because at that time I was still living at home and I was working, so I had all this disposable cash and it was brilliant!

But then as I got older, I found Topshop to be out of my budget. I sort of discovered in my mid-20s that Topshop was quite expensive and I couldn’t afford to buy anything. I and I am sure a lot of other clothes consumer, went somewhere cheaper to buy our clothes along the high street.

And that how it been for me, for a while. Admiring Topshop from afar but not really going the distance and taking a closer look.

That was up until recently, I was up in London Oxford street and I thought to myself that I would take a look at their flag street store. I mean it would be silly of me not to.

Topshop flagstreet store is 3 floor of nothing but clothes. Well ok, one floor is dedicated to accessories. It was at one time the biggest clothes store in Europe, not sure if it still is.

So I went in and took a look at everything, and my gosh a wave of nostalgia washed over me. It felt like old time and it has been too long.

Maybe now I’m older and I’m more settled with life, got my mortgage and job sorted. That I feel Topshop is no longer out of my budget. Not only am I older, but wiser and my style of clothes has changed.

Now I can be of the cool kids and I can now shop back in there, though now I think about it – all the cool kids now shop in Zara.

Me, being me have made a small wish list of clothes that I am loving from Topshop. So that is why there is a Topshop problem, me wanting to buy them all –but not really able to afford it. I’m sure I can buy one item and It won’t break the bank.

I thought I would show you my Topshop wishlist and why there is a Topshop problem.

    You have some really cute picks here. I mostly just wear jeans and t-shirts, so my wardrobe is pretty lame, but every now and then I dress up a little bit.

    Never used to be a fan of them either! Too expensive and found them to feel cheap and not very well made.
    But they’re really turned it around – even if they are still pricey!

    How freakin pretty is that star wrap dress! oh my word.. I need it

    I used to love Top Shop when I was younger but we don’t have one round here. Probably just as well or I’d end up spending too much. Pretty clothes Anna.

    I’ve never heard of this brand, but I love all the styles you chose. I wonder if they ship to the US? I buy a UK brand clothing for my youngest (Mini Boden and Johnnie B) because they seem to be better made and a lot less revealing for her age.

    I wear, like, two brands of clothes and that’s it, but after I lose my baby weight I’m going on a wardrobe replacement mission, so I’ll keep Topshop in mind.

    I really love the True Romance Tea Dress. It’s so cute and it would be totally flattering for me. Too bad I live in the states.

    I love these styles. They are way to form fitting for me, but I know they would look amazing on the right woman. I love the pink lace!

    Top Shop does have a lot of choices! I am loving these dresses especially the lace one. I think it’s nice that you rediscovered them, they have affordable clothes but I also wait for sales!

    Such cute dresses. They have a very modern yet retro feel, which I like. I can’t say I’ve ever been to Topshop as it wasn’t around in the states when I was younger. There are a few stores here in the US now so I might need to stop by.

    I’ve always heard great things about TopShop and anytime I’ve seen hauls from there I can see why it is so popular. All of those dresses are so fun and so unique.

    I love that starry dress! I find that topshop is still a bit expensive for me, so I don’t shop there often except for my nice or special occasion outfits.

    We don’t have topshop in America (that i’ve seen) but it’s on my list to shop there when I visit London! However, good to keep in mind the budgetting.
