A Topshop Wish List

Topshop Wish List

Topshop is a place I tend to avoid as it can potentially cause serious damage with just one singular item. I honestly do think it is incredibly overpriced for what it is which is another reason why I do tend to steer away and look elsewhere. Having said that they do have some really nice things in quite a lot of time whereby at the moment is of no exception. Recently I have spotted a few things which have caught my eye where I've even managed to shock myself in breaking somewhat of a tradition ever so slightly by choosing a colour other than black, grey and white; hallelujah!

Onto a little bit of the old tartan print I have picked out yet another scarf whereby this time the soft grey and white hues of the Gingham Scarf have got me really contemplating whether to pick this up; I'm a scarf-a-holic. In contrast to this the green and blue Check Nightshirt is right up my street, I absolutely love this type of thing however for some reason this doesn't seem to be stocked in any stores in my vicinity so it will be an online order if I decide to go for it. The Fluffy Crew Neck Jumper in the deep forest green is gorgeous and is more typical of my style.

The Bobby Chelsea Boots are in my opinion not too badly priced for Topshop, I may just have to eat my words. For me Chelsea Boots are the one thing that I tell myself I will pick up each autumn and every year another autumn goes by without picking up a pair. 

The Rib Waist Scuba Skirt really caught my eye due to the way it is cut and how it sits, in fact I think it's a really flattering shape and of course it looks really nice too. Lastly I chose a deep burgundy nail polish shade called 'Exhibit', it has been a long, long time since I had a look at the nail polishes at Topshop where I have noticed that there are quite a few new ones since I last browsed the stands.

*Since posting this post it has been brought to my attention that the cropped jumper I featured in this wish list had angora within it. This is something I would never condone and it is something I would never buy. As it happens I didn't buy this however if I had of done it would have gone straight back to the shop. I'd like to thank Rebecca in the comments below for highlighting this to me and being so very polite about it in the process.

  9. Sorry to be so negative on your post as I really enjoy reading your blog. But the Shrunken Cable Knit Sweater contains Angora which is a horrific product. Topshop as discontinuing its use after their current collection and will no longer be stocking new angora products. Other high street stores such as M&S, Monsoon and French Connection have also recently stopped producing products with angora in.

    90% of angora comes from China where undercover footage has revealed workers ripping the fur from the rabbits skin while its alive, and repeating the process every three months for 3-5 years. There are videos on youtube of this footage if you look up 'The Truth Behind Angora Fur'. The footage is just heartbreaking.

    Once again sorry for posting such a negative comment, but I just felt like you and your readers should know the implications of buying this product :(

  11. Rebecca, thank you so much for this comment I really appreciate it. I'm afraid this was very much an oversight on my part as I never buy angora, in fact last year there was a really nice jumper by Henry Holland in Debenhams and when I found out it had angora in it I was so angry and didn't buy it. I'm going to take the link out to that product I've featured as it has made me really sad.


    Once again thank you for pointing that out to me. To say that the process of angora farming horrifies me would be putting it mildly.


    I'm glad you like the boots though :) xx

  13. Oh wow, its great that you already don't buy angora! I wish everyone had the same outlook - but as you've now added the part about angora onto this post hopefully that will raise some more awareness too! :) xxx
