I took a little trip to Topshop…

I recently had my first personal shopping experience in Oxford street’s Topshop. I had always passed by the personal saying section, always telling myself that some day I would try it out but usually being in way too much of a rush.
I was so pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the staff, the casual attitude – as in they are not pushy with clothing at all and are very happy to fetch you whatever you like and grab different sizes for you – and the big room you get all to yourself to dance around in while you change…(it can’t just be me?)

Beforehand I filled in a few details for them via email, to save time so they that they could pull items for me before I got there and I was there for around an hour, which went SO quickly.
I tried many items I would not have thought to grab myself but which I was pleasantly surprised by and I am still planning to go back and get some of the items I didn’t get on the day.

I was in desperate need of some new jeans and some basics so in the end I got two pairs of Jamie jeans (Slightly stretchy, give you a good perky bum and they cut off at the perfect place on your ankle) and a tee which I think would give you that cool ‘off-duty model’ look.
Then I went for this black side slit versatile top which is such a simple piece which I know will last me forever and its so timeless – and lastly some burgundy pumps which I wouldn’t think much of if passing them by but which look and feel amazing on.

I highly recommend taking advantage of the personal shopping department if you have some time to spare one day. I had a ball!
Have you had a personal shopping experience?

  2. This sounds amazing! I definitely want to try this out because I desperately want to venture away from my "safe style" of everything being pretty plain and monochrome. Having someone else pick out clothes they think would suit me and what I like sound perfect!x

  6. It looks like you picked up some lovely pieces Sammi! I loved the vlog you did with your personal shopping experience. Jamie jeans are by far my favourite jeans – I practically live in them and I love these coated ones. And the berry shoes are so dreamy 🙂 x

    It sounds like you had the most amazing time Sammi! I have never tried this, but whenever I'm in Oxford St. Toyshop, I always see the area and want to know more. I definitely think I'll give this a try soon. Also the khaki trousers and white tee are just my style.:)

    I love the way your new blog design looks, and I LOVE those shoes!

  14. I've never tried personal shopping probably bcs I've always felt intimated by the people who work at Topshop. Plus, I get awkward around new people!

  15. Danielle says:

    i always tell myself i wouldn't like personal shopping because i can't see other people knowing what suits my style and such but it actually sounds kind of cool, might have to consider if when i'm in vegas next month since that's the only topshop i'll be near anytime soon 🙂

    It's such a great experience! Takes out the stress, try on as little or as many outfits as you like and it's a great opportunity to try a new style. I'd definitely recommend it too.

    I blogged about my experience here: 🙂

  21. Perla.girl says:

    I HEART those shoes! The colour is phenomenal! Desperately wish I had a TopShop where I live!
    Someday… Someday i will shop there 🙂

  22. Those shoes are beautiful, what a great choice! Definitely encouraging me to take the time to go for a personal shop, it's always nice to find new styles, and I'm a major fan of the Jamie jean!


  23. I've always thought about doing this but I feel like there's never really the right time. With the seasons changing though I really need to update my wardrobe…maybe I should just take the plunge and give it a go.
