MASSIVE TOPSHOP FAIL.


Well, I’m all for abit of change but not only is the new Topshop.com a massive copy of AllSaints.com (in design, layout, font, colour palette etc…) they’ve obviously not even proofed their website before launching it to LIVE. I had a massive ROFL at the copycat website this morning when I saw the blurb above and just had to share! I have a massive bug bear with spelling and mistakes!

Basically, when you click on NEW IN>SHOES it brings up the above page…. only the text is supposed to be for a Shorts category, not Shoes. But hold on, that’s not even the cherry on the cake! The cherry comes in the form of the blurb being, apparently, meant for TOPMAN.COM!

I wonder how long it is before they notice their #TopshopFail?

I’m struggling.


I’m REALLY struggling to log into WordPress right now. Not only that, but I’m REALLY REALLY struggling to copy my Tumblr posts over to WordPress. So, as a compromise, why not migrate with me over to Tumblr? My address is Judypink.tumblr.com.

I swear you will not be disappointed! ;o Life is a breeze!

I *Quite* Like This: Map Print Dress By Topshop.


… bit unsure about this one, I *think* I like it… but I reckon it more of a ‘need to see it in real life’ jobby. I definitely like the map print, thats pretty ingenious to be honest!

What do you reckon?

I Want, want, want: Topshop Unique Hawaii Print Dress.


I thought I liked this dress when I saw it on the Topshop Unique runway last London Fashion Week back in September. Now the dress is online, I KNOW I love it and I WANT.

Topshop Unique and Boutique, for me, have been lacking somewhat recently… maybe it was just the curse of that awkward transitional period between Autumn/Winter and Spring? I certainly hope so!

I’m Selling… “Amelie” Studded Ankle Boots: Size 3.


Ok so I’ve literally worn these had boy ankle boots once to a ‘fashion party’ at Movida last June. They’ve been sat in the box since their one and only wear so I see little point keeping them when someone else could be enjoying their edgy pleasure.

Brand: Topshop Shoes.

Size: UK 3, EU 36, US 5.5.

Heel Height: 4.6 inches/12cm.

Colour: Black with gold stud detail

Material(s): Luxuriously soft Leather.

Condition: Literally worn ONCE.

As you can see from the pictures they’ve got a few natural creases to the uppers (the leather is beautifully soft!), the soles/heel tips are very barely worn and there are no loose or missing gold studs.

CLICK HERE TO BUY THEM FROM ME ON eBAY.

Happy Bidding!

Topshop Boutique: Mini Collar Smock.


Topshop Boutique Mini Collar Smock, £70.

I think this is a great wardrobe staple, especially for SS10! The colourway is spot on, and well, you can never fail with a smock. A smock dress hides a multitude of sins (ahem) and this style is great to wear with tights and boots for colder days or wear with bare legs and wedges for summer! BOOM

Oh Topshop making up new words, again : COATIGAN?


I know I sound like a proper geek but I can’t help but look at other peoples websites with a critical eye now. Notably, Topshop.com have been caught out by my critical eye a lot recently. On Friday my friend Grace saw this COATIGAN on the Topshop website. Firstly, COATIGAN? Are you actually having my eyes out? Coatigan is not a real word. Secondly, by using this silly term in such a manner (see description) you’re hardly going to get your new word in the Oxford Dictionary are you?! DREADFUL Topshop, just DREADFUL.

Topshop.com to me are quite strange in their approach to product descriptions…the description attached to this product is not grammatically correct and is far too wordy. I myself would have written something like:

Wool blend, wrap over jacket with a cosy large collar and self-tie belt. This style  has long sleeves, is hip length and features an all-over polar bear print

NO?

Do you think having a good description can persuade you to buy something online? Or do you not even bother to read into a product description?

I’d really like to hear your thoughts on this, considering I write product descriptions for a living.
