A Short Trip to Topshop

Topshop in Soho is always  a top destination to find something trendy and interesting.  For some reason shopping at Topshop NYC always feels a bit more special than when shopping at the Topshop London… Not sure why?  But its probably because it makes me appreciate shopping in London much more.  Miss it!

Here are some interesting pieces at the Soho store (plus the blue lace top first from H&M):

Some Items From Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters is one of those very interesting stores where you can find great items hidden amongst so many other…. well, not so unique items.  It’s just that with other stores like Forever 21 where younger people can afford somewhat fashionable clothing at a very low price, spending $68 on a regular top for many of them  is just not happening! Especially in these economic times!

However, I have to admit that I can’t resist Urban, because sometimes they have unique and querky pieces hidden around the filled store, waiting for you to find them.  Since I do not mind going around and looking for a piece I want absolutely have to buy, going to this store can actually be great fun.  Well for my style not my wallet!

On a recent trip there, I found some simple but interesting items (below).  On the hanger, they may look not so special, but once you put them on, they take on a life of themselves.  The secret is to always, ALWAYS, TRY IT ON!!  Plus I noticed in the men’s section, some Nikes with black leather on soft grey material.  Pretty nice for girls too!

The Trench Dress: Wear it this Fall and Early Spring 2011

The trenchcoat look is back this season, and perfect for the not so cold and rainy weather.  For those who live in rainy cities like London, you actually always have a trench and raincoat, but of course keeping a trendy and up to date cut is important.  Now you can either wear the trench as a coat or a dress, and the best part about it is that this look started appearing in spring 2010 but it also appeared in Spring 2011 NY Fashion week with designers like Rachel Roy.  So now you can even take an old trench, cut up the sleeves (of course at a tailor if you are the scissors happy type), slim the waist, and a belt from the same fabric, and have it ready for Spring of next year.  Here is a look at some of the trenchcoat dresses already available now;

Style Guide: Why we like Asos.com

So there are so many cute, interesting, and also affordable items on Asos.com right now, and I thought I should post about it.  I was introduced by a friend to Asos.com and loved it, they have different looks, usually designer inspired and they are most of the time affordable, especially when on sale.  I am reassured because if London/UK chicas are shopping online at asos, then their items must be nice.  It is always a good idea to wait for their sales, and oohhh a tip when you go to asos.com, watch out for a quick message that pops up before the actual website shows up, because it usually gives a free shipping or discount code, Be quick and watch out for it.
