High Street Pick of the Week

I know everyone is in love with Topshop but I haven't been that bothered about it for ages. Probably as I wasn't shopping for ages but mainly in reality I'm no longer or not a Topshop girl, although I did kick myself for not buying a lovely floral top last spring from Topshop when I saw it.

Topshop has served me well over the years so I wouldn't knock it but I'm sure my boredom is due to over hype and the fact everyone wears Topshop. That aside it does do a great range of great accessories in the Oxford Circus store and some rather yummy bags.

I spied this number but in a gorgeous Duck Egg blue* which isn't online so I'm showing you the item in stone, which you might say is probably more practical but then I'd say, no go for the glamour!

Leather Ring Handle Bag £65

* PS actually the duck egg blue has a different handle and is £15 more, I double checked in Oxford Street Topshop yesterday afternoon but exactly the same bag base style - slightly different then!!

  5. Oh, I am not a Topshop girl either. I think it's highly overrated, especially since they've got Kate Moss as a part of their team. I've been hearing English girls talking about TopShop since I moved to the UK, but never quite understood what the whole hype was about. I think it's like Marmite. Not like I hate it, but I am sort of... indifferent. :) Hope I didn't upset anyone, it's only my opinion.

  6. OMG - I had a dream last night about finding a bag that is EXACTLY like that one - colour, cut, the whole shebang. Man that is creepy.

  7. Once in a while (well, twice in my lifetime) I've ordered an interesting jacket from TopShop. Whenever I've walked into a store, I've seen nothing good at all!

  13. Duck egg blue is a highly underrated colour! Sounds really gorg!
    To be honest Topshop is starting to make me feel old, I went in yesterday to be confronted with so many pairs of sequin pants (as outer wear!!!) I couldnt cope and ran off to Zara LOL!

  15. Classy/classic for being a Topshop offering... I'm pretty excited we finally have a store here in NYC but so far I've been browsing more than buying. It gets a little old when everyone is wearing the same Kate Moss minidresses and overpriced scarves...!
