"Wow! Amazing!" — These were pretty much the words on everybody's lips this afternoon at the first TOPSHOP & TOPMAN Store Launch in Sandton today! 

The store officially opens to the Public at 10am tomorrow (22 November 2012), but the Media had a Sneak Peak (or should I rather say 'Splurge') at the store today! 

So here it is: TOPSHOP & TOPMAN! ...

Originally Owned by The Arcadia GroupTOPSHOP & TOPMAN is brought to South Africa by Edcon and Busby
The Rococo Trend at TOPSHOP
The Store stocks ALL CURRENT FASHION; so the items you see on the rails in the South African TOPSHOP is exactly the same as what the folks in London see! The Arcadia Group promises weekly deliveries to the Sandton Store to ensure the product being offered is current.

Beautiful Shoes = Happy Heart! ♥
At TOPSHOP, Trends Don't Die; they gradually morph into the next trend, and this happens in a period of 6-weeks, after which a new trend will be introduced. 


Rails in the store are set out in "Story Formats" and all items on a rail can be mixed-and-matched with other items from the same (and neighbouring) rails to create various outfits, making a shopper's life much easier and less time-consuming.

And Gents — while your Girlfriends shop up a Storm at TOPSHOP (and they will, mark my words), you can browse the Charming and Daring Collection in TOPMAN (and I think you will end up spending loads more than your girlfriend).

And, I couldn't Leave the store empty handed (that would have been a sin in my books) so I bought a few items :)

My Outfit for the Launch Party:

Shorts from Country Road
Necklace from Mr Price

Now, I no-longer need to travel thousands of miles to get my Fix of the Awesomeness that is TOPSHOP ... Which means more shopping money to spend on Beautiful outfits as I won't need to pay for Airfares ;)
