the topshop wishlist.

1 April 2009


Date: April 2, 2009

When: 11:00 a.m. Be there early!

Where: Topshop on Broadway and Broome

If only I could be there. Then I’d be entitled to first dibs on the Kate Moss for Topshop Collection and a few other goodies I’ve had my eye on for quite some time. It would be the perfect shopping excursion: celebrity sightings, beauty treatments, snacking on sweets, and grabbing shamelessly from the racks and shelves – all in time to beats provided by special guest DJs. Fabulous, no?


heart5 Selena Snake Lace Up Shoes in Nude, $125: The most beautiful shoe, near the rank of all footwear in the YSL’s Tribute Collection, I’ve yet seen. A bit ballerina-esque in it’s lace up and slightly pink-nude shade, reminiscent of Michael Kors Spring 2007. That, and a bit Christian Louboutin with its python print. The perfect spring shoe to pair with cropped denim, short shorts, or body con dresses. Feminine, pretty, and light, with the ability to be dressed up or down.

heart5 Kraze Cut Out Detail Shoe in Black, $90: I never thought I would fall for a pair of brogues. But these aren’t any brogues; what differs from the older, sometimes tackier version is the square perforations all over the shoe – making it a bit more modern whilst keeping the classic shape. Another perfect shoe for spring; airy cutouts equal ventilation in those humid or hot days, and can be worn with pants and denim of all sorts and cuts. Highly covetable on my list.

heart5Circle Tee in Black/White, $32: A must have basic. It is of the most perfect and versatile cut; a slight hint at cleavage, with the rest of the tee loose around the body. It’s light, airy, and oh-so-practical. Making it the ultimate basic to wear (or layer over) without an extra ounce of thought needed.

heart5 NYC Oversized Tee, $44: Never have I ever wanted a tee so much. But then again, it is not just any tee; what basic tee has the most interesting, asymmetrical and fluttery sleeve length? A simple yet effective print? And a perfect cut that allows it to be worn with denim, jean shorts, pants, body-con skirts, or leggings? This one. I am highly considering purchasing this (if only S&H wasn’t needed…).


heart5 Leopard Frill Mini Skirt, $65: Sooo adorable. I fell in love with peplum skirts since I saw Alexander McQueen’s LBD earlier this year. But oftentimes such a silhouette is unflattering on an hourglass figure with a derriere, so this toned down version makes it so much more wearable. I adore everything about it – the leopard print in in unconventional shades of pale pink, gray-taupe, and brown; the shape of the skirt itself; and the playful element it would add to a solid colored tee/tank.

heart5Stone Facet Collar in Cream, $85: A bit like Lanvin’s jewelry on the Spring 2009 runway. The alternative to the gaudier statement pieces, the light, cream colored stones give the entire necklace an ethereal spring. Ideal of spring.

heart5 Matt Look Bodycon Mini Skirt, $50: The most perfect skirt ever. I want it. I need it. Its presence in my closet would make a world’s difference, without a doubt. The shinier fabric is the more flattering and classic version of the leather mini; the exposed zipper? Perfect. Practical, versatile, edgy, and sexy.


La C.

P.S.: I realized I used “perfect” too many times for my own good… Where art thou, dearest, dust-encrusted thesaurus?

    Yay! Maybe Topshop’s opening has the power to reverse the economic recession?

    Maybe not.

    Love the blog as always!

  2. 1 April 2009 8:50 pm

    Love the tees! They look so simple, comfy & versatile! The neckpiece is cute too! But US$85 is quite steep for Topshop! 🙂

    i’m so jealous you’re getting a Top Shop.

    by the way, I have some stuff for giveaway at my blog, just in case you are into boutique hotels…

    thanks for your comment!!! oh i lovee the tophshop tops!!!!!

    and i love this blog!

  5. 1 April 2009 10:13 pm

    I would probably end up spending every last penny at Topshop if we had one in California.

  6. 1 April 2009 10:16 pm

    Topshop is nice but honestly it is quite expensive for what it is.
    I have a question by the way : I fell in love with a Korcula ring. But I do not see any sizes on their website. Are they in a unique size ?
    Thank you ! xxx

  7. 1 April 2009 10:18 pm

    Finally, no more waiting two weeks and paying for shipping! I really want that black bodycon mini skirt.

  8. 1 April 2009 10:21 pm

    Oh my!! I’m so jealous of those living in NYC. I need a topshop fix.

    Omg, I want it ALL! Why in the world is Canada so boring????

  12. 1 April 2009 11:02 pm

    So excited…I will be there, fighting it out amongst the masses…


  13. 1 April 2009 11:16 pm

    I agree with Alina’s comment! Why does Canada not get one? But I LOVE your choices! They are classic, but still right on trend. So lovely!

  14. 1 April 2009 11:23 pm

    Thank you for replying so quickly. That’s so sweet of you ! Actually I was talking about the Gemstone Ring. There are no sizes on the website.
    Thank you for your help ! xxx

  15. 1 April 2009 11:52 pm

    The skirts are my favorites! After all, what good are all of those shoes if you don’t have the proper skirt to show some leg? xo

  16. 2 April 2009 12:14 am

    good lord, i WISH WISH WISH i was in the city right now!!!!

    *sighs* you’re so lucky – please shop your heart out for me

  17. 2 April 2009 1:35 am

    Haha your ‘dearest dust covered thesaurus’. Not to sure about this collection but I do want a pair of brogues to pair with over the knee socks and dresses/skirts. xx

  18. 2 April 2009 2:59 am

    Hi there-fab picks my dear, I’m loving the white tee with the writing best!! I bought a skirt online at Topshop yesterday, similiar to the last one, but in a ribbed style, but the quality is no good, so I’m returning it. I so wanted a decent black bodycon skirt, so I’m still on the hunt!

  19. 2 April 2009 3:02 am

    love the plain white tee- plain tees are always so nice

    Haha, this is just the beginning…! Believe me Topshop has the addictive potential of choc & chip ice-cream, soon your room will be invaded by their amazing platform shoes and irresistible silk dresses… I confess it is my case! I used to make trips to London only for that and I know many French who still do! 🙂 x x

  21. 2 April 2009 4:15 am

    Thank you for the tip on the gif, I´ll try that 🙂

    Lovely items you picked out, I can see myself in them too 🙂

  22. 2 April 2009 4:24 am

    oh my god, that bodycon leatherette mini needs to jump into my closet like right now! i’ve been looking for a good leather mini everywhere, especially in the thrift shops–stores here in the tropics don’t typically carry leather (not applicable to the weather), but hopefully the local topshop will offer it eventually, and for a discount, of course.

    just encountered your blog and i’m enjoying your reviews and commentaries! hope you could drop by mine as well.

    much love

    Perfect and Topshop are always going to end up in the same sentence.. and numerous times in the same paragraph.. ask anyone! hehe..

    Im in love with those brogues as well.. and the bodycon skirt.. and those tees.. *sigh* now, I wish we had topshop here as well.

    Those topshop loose fitted T-shirts are amazing! I want one so bad! I hate it that Norway doesn’t have Topshop yet…

  27. 2 April 2009 6:39 am

    First photo is great!
    I ike those pieces.


  28. 2 April 2009 7:04 am

    I want those nude shoes and that necklace. Great post!

  29. 2 April 2009 9:32 am

    that nude heel is AMAZING

  30. 2 April 2009 9:37 am

    I want to book a flight to NY just for Topshop mania. Excellent choices!

  31. 2 April 2009 9:44 am

    Hello La C. Those are some great products. I wish you could get them all. I hope you’re doing well. Take care. Cheers!

  32. 2 April 2009 11:51 am

    what a great list! the new Kate Moss for Topshop collection is online today too and i just had a look, many dresses are sold out already!! 🙂


  33. 2 April 2009 11:58 am

    Sooooo exciting! Love that leopard skirt especially!

    Hope you get everything on your wishlist, darling La C!


  34. 2 April 2009 1:46 pm

    I really love those nude stilettos but damn if I can pay $90 for a pair of shoes. I just paid $70 last month, because I was “head over heels” with these shoes but that killed my budget entirely!

  35. 2 April 2009 2:19 pm

    Topshop is a great british style brand! and I love ed westwick too! He’s hot 🙂


  36. 2 April 2009 2:26 pm

    Good selection

  37. 2 April 2009 3:01 pm

    The Leopard Frill Mini Skirt, please.

  38. 2 April 2009 3:15 pm

    I love the body-con mini with the exposed zipper!

  39. 2 April 2009 3:16 pm

    Want the leather skirt too!
    Sadly, in Belgium we don’t have any of those brilliant shops, so I’ll have to by it online one time 😉

  40. 2 April 2009 3:40 pm

    Ooo! I am in love with the first shoe and who doesn’t love leather skirts! 🙂

  41. 2 April 2009 4:05 pm

    right about now, i am very sad i do not live in new york. 😦

  42. 2 April 2009 4:10 pm

    I love the skirts and necklace!

  43. 2 April 2009 6:40 pm

    I want nude shoes too!!

  44. 2 April 2009 8:19 pm

    I. cannot. wait. I went onto the Topshop website and I plotzed at the sight of each look. Their clothing is so covetable. I love the lace up shoe it’s so pretty!

    I cant believe how expensive your topshop is! we have so many here in england and i have the oversized NYC tshirt you where going on about i got it for £12 which is around $20 i think. Your blog is great i just came across it by chance when looking at pictures of Erin Wasson! Im doing fashion at university and cant decide whether to go down the route of design or editing! Good luck u seem to have a good eye for it all xx

  46. 3 April 2009 3:37 pm

    I adore Topshop! I wish I could have been there :[
    I agree with everything on your wish list, everything is extremely covetable.
