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):
