My inspiration board is filled with photographs taken by the Sartorialist master Scott Schuman, and my wallet has been depleted ever since Topshop came to New York City.
Now, to make all my style dreams come true, the British high street store has tapped Scott to create shopping pages for customers, based on his iconic photographs. He’s broken down his top five looks from Fashion Week and made each item shop-able through the Topshop website. Meaning that his brilliant eye for fashion has quickly translated into online shopping.
The best part? Your new style looks only require a quick click to buy and all of the sudden you’ve become the stylish girl on the cobblestone streets. All that I’m left wanting for now is my own image appearing on his blog… [Topshop]

We love designer Emma Cook, and clearly we’re crazy about Topshop, but we’re having a little trubs drumming up any affection for these new platforms. A product of their latest collaboration, the shoe (far left) costs a whopping $290, while the boots (middle and right) weigh in at $340. The height and chunkiness are totally on trend–we’ll give them that. I could even learn to love those animal prints. But for that amount of money, most ladies would probably rather invest in something more classic, right? I know I would. Thoughts on these shoes anyone? Keep reading »
Sigh. I love The Daily Mail so much. You never know what those crazy British birds are gonna do next! Today it’s a “real woman” — cough, intrepid journalist, cough — Claire Coleman modeling clothes from the brand new Kate Moss for Topshop line. Her reasoning:
“When I see Kate Moss in a dress, I’m not just looking at the dress, I’m looking at Kate Moss and the dress. And however beautiful the dress, I can’t help thinking that it’s going to look an awful lot better on her than it does on me. Moss may not be getting any younger, but she still has the gamine proportions of the 16-year-olds who seem to form the backbone of Topshop’s customer base. The question is can real women like me and my friends, who are rather closer in age to Miss Moss, actually wear any of the clothes she is offering?”
Ain’t that the question indeed, sis! This definitely makes me consider how sometimes we buy clothes for all the wrong reasons. But that’s about it. Keep reading »
We love this image from Kate Moss‘ new fall Topshop collection, but the snagged tights give us pause. Since last time we were caught with major runs in our stockings we were embarrassed and had to pop home for another pair, we can’t wait to say, “I meant to look like this,” next time it happens.

Any Topshop news is good news in our book. The London import will be prettying up its wares with a new cosmetics line, due out next year, as it continues to become more of a department store/one-stop shop. No word yet on what the collection will be like, but British Elle says: “We’re guessing they could be tapping an international make-up artist to work with on the project.” We’d also expect some uber-cute packaging and, hopefully, very affordable price points. Should Sephora feel threatened? [Elle UK] Keep reading »
Now that Topshop is fully and very securely entrenched in the American fashion scene, we get to be endlessly entertained by the also seemingly endless announcements of collaborations à la H&M and Target. Fashion types are obsessed with Scottish designer Christopher Kane–he’s always the toast of London Fashion Week and you may recognize his famous gorilla shirts. So, naturally when his Topshop collection was announced, the collective jaw dropped. Eh, it’s still not here yet (next month ladies, next month!), but images have finally surfaced and, like I said, the people who care are generally buzzing. And we’re excited too, but wary of actually being able to score this cobalt dress, chic granny panties or black studded leggings, since his spring/summer 2009 collection completely sold out in a matter of hours when it launched on Net-A-Porter. And those clothes were WAY more expensive. [BlackBook] Keep reading »
