For most women a trip to Toshop is reminiscent of being a kid in a sweet shop: you
want need everything. Now. If money were no object I think most of us would walk round the rails pushing a shopping trolley and filling it to the brim. Sadly I for one don’t have the time or money to do this every Saturday, and I’m not sure the staff would approve of a trolley dash anyway, so thank goodness for Topshop Edit.
Available online and making up part of the Oxford street store, Edit is a hand-picked selection of new season trends, aimed at a time-poor shopper with cash to splash. Along with leather briefcases and antique lace tops I spotted this gorgeous ladylike dress, above, when I paid a brief visit myself last Friday before The LOOK Show. Sophie Ellis-Bextor wore it with a cream cardigan to the show and looked, for want of a better phrase, just darling! Midi is the length of the season and the delicate blue floral print is both ordered and chaotic depending upon where your eye falls. The bow at the back is another nice detail and the 50s silhouette is no doubt inspired by the recent fascination with Mad Men. I feel it could make any girl feel feminine and be both smart and playful with the right accessories, want, want want!
The Topshop Edit store is located within the flagship London store on Oxford Street but if you want to wrestle with me for the last dress then try the Topshop store in Cabot Circus or Cribbs Causeway.
