PERSONAL SHOPPING AT TOPSHOP
I’ve always wanted to try Personal Shopping Service at TOPSHOP because even I, sometimes need help with finding the perfect outfit for that special occasion. So excited that TOPSHOP invited me in to their Glasgow store on Argyle Street for an appointment with Kirsty and what great timing – I was running out of ideas (and clothes) for an upcoming festive party I have to attend this month.
There’s really no excuse why I waited so long to meet with Kirsty as the Personal Shopping Service is absolutely FREE in all TOPSHOP stores. All you need to do is book your appointment online or call your local store and you’ll be fitted in instantly. I had no idea how luxurious and exclusive the service actually was. I got my very own changing room filled with gorgeous pieces that Kirsty already prepared for me before I arrived. TOPSHOP Personal Shoppers will do that for everyone I must add, as you provide them with your sizing, occasion and some other info when you book your appointment online. It’s perfect for those who want a complete wardrobe overhaul, a quick lunch time fashion fix and for those who really want to enjoy shopping in privacy with a friend or alone, with some professional help, a glass of bubbly and all stress-free. See you next week Kirsty… and the week after… and the following week…
MY PARTY LOOK
I know I said that I wasn’t a fan of sequins many times before, but I must admit I was expecting to see some festive sequins on the rails for me. Topshop always pull it out of the bag each year at this time of year and what’s more, I actually didn’t mind trying some sequins on as I was feeling super festive and brave. It’s what stylists are for, right? To push you out of your comfort zone and get you to try on some new designs, colours and accessories. This mesh lace long sleeve top for example. I would have never known how pretty it looks on and to be honest, I would never have probably even noticed it myself. I tend to go for more masculine shapes lately, but isn’t this top gorgeous? Also very sweet how Kirsty saw a way to bring out that feminine sparkle with this subtle sequin number. The right amount of sparkle for a festive party and I wanted to hug her for pairing it up with the NEW IN Fringed Hem Jamie Jeans. Kirsty and Jamie – my new BFF’s.
As soon as I walked in to the Personal Shopping changing rooms the little magpie in me couldn’t stop staring at these gumetal GAMBLE party heels. They’re real leather and come in other colours too, but I just had to have them to really “disco up” my party look. Again, I would have probably gone for something black and boring if I had to shop on my own and party wouldn’t be a party anymore. Shoe game is strong with GAMBLE (pun intended).
Fringed hem skinnies, disco ball shoes, glitter nails, see-through mesh top and dark lips… If this doesn’t scream party (and 80s) to you then I don’t know what will. Luckily TOPSHOP also had the most perfect coat to complete my look and this really brought out the 80s kid in me. Can we go dancing already?
GET PARTY READY – TOPSHOP BEAUTY
Talking of dark lipsticks and party nails… On Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of December Topshop Glasgow (Argyle St. Store) will be hosting a ‘Get Party Ready’ weekend. Customers who spend over £40 in-store that weekend will be eligible to receive a complimentary express gel manicure, mini party makeover. You DON’T need an appointment – just turn up, but all treatments are on first come first serve basis so get there early is my advice. More info is in the flyer below.
Ideal if you’re going out in the evening and need a new outfit anyway. Get your nails and make-up done while you’re there and also learn some other party tips at the event. I had no idea that so many Topshop beauty products sell out instantly and that some of the world-famous make-up artists use the brand’s beauty products every day. My favourite right now is Matte “Black Widow” Lipstick. Don’t miss out on the festive girly fun at Topshop this weekend girls (and boys)!
