I recently went to the grand opening of Topshop, and was so surprised that there was no one there for the opening. There was no line (not at the register, nor the fitting rooms, or to get into the store), and it was so slow I had one on one help at the fitting room. A few months back, I went to the grand opening of H&M and it was packed! The line was horrible, and it was so many people there I was overwhelmed. Since Topshop is new to Houston, I figured in a few months once people realize what it is, the store will be packed. I usually shop this brand in Vegas, or at Nordstroms. Now that they have a brick and mortar in the mall, and also have Topman, hubby and I will be there all the time.
Ok, so I bet you are wondering why I am so excited about this store being in Houston. They are one of the brands that carry petite, and I don’t have to get anything altered, and it fits me perfectly. Most of the items they make will come in petite as well, and they have a whole section at the store. For you tall ladies, they have a TALL section as well. There is nothing worse than finding the perfect pair of jeans, and they are either to long (for shorter women), or to short (for taller women). Topshop solves that problem, and for that reason I am a fan.
The store also offers a stylist program where they have an in house stylist that can pull looks for you, and assist you in the fitting rooms. I thought that was pretty neat, and sets them apart from their competition. They also offer a student discount (10% off) with a valid student ID. If you are near the Houston area, go check out the store or just head over to Nordstroms at the Galleria.
If you can’t tell, I am really digging BLUE this season!!!! This Ponte Jacket is my new favorite piece. I want the grey one now, but I have to stop buying things that are the same but different colors.
