A few weeks ago I nipped into Topshop’s personal shopping space in their Brighton store. I’d been feeling uninspired by my wardrobe and needed a second opinion and some inspiration for the transition between seasons. As much as I love black skinny jeans and a tee I was getting bored of putting on the same thing everyday and was looking at my wardrobe in disdain as opposed to being excited to get dressed for the day.
The girls at Topshop changed that. Three hours in the personal shopping space and I’m a changed woman. They offer tea and cupcakes while they ask a few questions about your style, what you’re looking to get from the experience and your sizes.
The girls came back with arm-fulls of clothes which they set out into outfits in a large changing room with a big mirror and two clothing rails. They pick everything from the base layers, to jackets, shoes, handbags and accessories. I do wish that I could have one of them live with me, getting dressed was so easy with their stylish eyes watching over.
I left having spent a little too much money, though with the experience theres no requirement to buy anything. I justified my spend thinking that I’d have enough for a couple of months, but the truth is I can’t wait to go back!
Since my shopping experience I’ve fallen in love with fashion again, and while I might still wear skinny jeans and tee some days, I wear them with a bangin jacket or some fabulous shoes.
