Yesterday’s opening of Chicago’s most recent acquisition was a pleasant breath of fresh air, in this case British breeze. I first heard of the UK big retailer about three years ago while reading Victoria Beckham’s multiple references to the store in her best seller “That Extra Half an Inch.” It was all a bit irritating knowing the nearest store was no less than an eight-hour flight away. I can’t even describe how cool it feels knowing this now conveniently changed to a short twenty-five minute walk. The new Topshop is located at 850 North Michigan, beautiful and big. As I took my first step into the shop I was nicely greeted by store associates and overwhelmed by a sight of heaven. Racks and more racks of fall fashion items to die for. Prices? Let’s just say If you like me are used to shopping at Forever 21 and H&M, you won’t be impressed.
Wandering through the first floor, signs for booking a personal styling appointment came to my attention. Of course, being the suspicious girl that I am, I was sure this wouldn’t be free of charge. Wrong. The service is totally free and as you can see, it includes styling advice, water and cupcakes. Sign me up!
