Personal Shopping in Topshop


This time two weeks ago I was invited to Topshop's launch of Personal Shopping. 

It was the hottest day I've ever experienced in the West Midlands. And my denim mini skirt begged to make an appearance on this glorious day. 

I love it when I can go to events and bring along friends. What's a better way to spend a summer's evening than sipping on cocktails and having conversations all about fashion? They could not say no to this invite. 

When we arrived to Birmingham Bullring Shopping Centre, we headed straight to Topshop. Their massive store was buzzing with excitement. Funky and party music welcomed us as we entered the store.

Some of you may know that a few exclusive Topshop branches have Personal Shopping services. 

Yeah, you heard me correctly. There is a specialised Topshop stylist who can show you the 'must-haves' and the 'got-to-buys' that suit your style. It's all about you! Whether you want a gorgeous holiday look, need some inspiration for your work wardrobe, or willing to jazz up your personal style. This Personal Shopping service is much more reliable than dragging your partner or friend around Topshop asking for their opinions. We all know they just want to sit down or get out promptly.

Topshop's Personal Shopping experience is completely complimentary. Yeah, you are definitely hearing me perfectly fine! You don't have to spend any money to receive their personal shopping service and advice. 

In Birmingham Bullring Topshop, the stylists showed me and my friends what's in store for summer trends. Floaty and floral Topshop dresses, gingham (of course) and casual khaki jackets are in for summertime. Has anyone seen those shiny silver boots they have in store? My gawddd, I NEED them.

I had a conversation with my friends about what I want to wear this summer. I'm all about off-the-shoulder tops and crop tops, but ones that don't show my whole stomach. High-waisted trousers, mini skirts and floral but tighter fitted dresses. 

If you wanted to use Topshop Personal Shopping, you can book an appointment and highlight what your style is and what you're lusting over. But if you're like me, and can't put a finger on what your exact style is, I'd suggest creating a mood board or a Pinterest board (have a look at mine!) This way it can highlight aspects and certain items you've been eyeing up lately. I've placed a few inspo outfits below of the kind of styles that I'd be searching for in Topshop.  

I honestly think this is the most effective way to change things up if you're feeling uninspired about your personal style. We are so likely to pick the same-old garments and become safe in our styles. This experience gives you a new perspective and reveals clothes that you may have never tried on before. 

Also I forget to say you'll get your own spacious dressing room. How gorgeous do they look? Plus, you can do group personal shopping! Imagine, you and your friends planning a 'girl gang' look for your Ibiza holiday? All your outfits coordinating together like Little Mix. It may sound super cheesy but your Instagram would look fiiiiiierce!
