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?

To Clog Or Not To Clog?


As soon as the February 2010 VOGUE came out, with Alexa emblazoned on the front cover, wearing those faithful original CHANEL clogs, I think it was fair to say, we knew there and then, clogs would be massive this Summer. So, I think we have Alexa Chung to blame for the invasion of clogs in everyones SS10 collections and all the many CHANEL imitations we’ve already seen hitting the high street.

So, to clog or not to clog, that is the question? Take a look at my clog picks…

These are the original CHANEL clogs as seen on the SS10 fashion week runway.

Seanna, £68.00, Topshop.

(Topshop’s take on the CHANEL clog (not too sure how they get away with it, but hey ho!)

‘Howdy, £85, ASOS.com.

Selection of 3 clog styles, available from River Island, all £44.99.

Fur-lined Clogs by Miu Miu, $849.

Jimmy Choo and Marni’s take on Clogs.

‘Prima’, £85, Topshop.

(The studded sling back clog is pretty much the modern take on the Clog really).

SO! Will your Summer be all clogged up with clogs?

PS –  I hear that Clogs are a little bit tough… I found the below tips from lovely blogger, 5 inches and up.

I also have to share the best shoe fitting trick, that I had to use on these. Some of you may have heard of it, works best on leather/suede shoe that feels too tight and rub your feet..
1. wear the shoes on bare feet inside your house for a while so you know which part rubs and may cause blisters
2. buy moleskin tape/ fabric bandaid from the pharmacy and wrap a strip around the sore spot
3. soak your feet in water then dry them leaving the tape wet
4. wear your shoes with the wet tape on and the tight parts will mold perfectly to your feet, without stretching the whole shoe.

The Wait Is Over… The Revolution Is Here.


Today was the day that technological history hit me in the face with in a big, beautiful and shiny Apple bag.

(This is the beauty on my desk, along with my helmet and aeroplane heh).

(This is Lee Ryan (AKA Tom) modelling the beauty by his desk. heh).

I think it’s pretty damn amazing – can’t wait till James buys one for our house though! 😀

First observations? It’s not as big as I expected… of course, it is 10 inches, but it’s really not laptop size; it’s perfect size. Also, and ultimately, it’s really rather lightweight too! Infact, it’s a nice weight;o Whilst having a play with it, you certainly see how responsive it is too. We watched Toy Story 3 and messed on with the demo applications.

Call me sad, call me a geek – I don’t mind, but I’ll say this, this is the future of communication and computing. Right in the palm of your hand. Well done Apple, I salute you!

What do you think of the iPad so far then?

Emma Cook For Topshop.


Emma Cook returns to TOPSHOP for another successful collaboration with the high street brand. This time round Emma has emblazoned jumper dresses and sweaters and cardigans with the average ‘name’ – whether that be Janet or Louise or maybe Geoff or Gerrard. However, I’m quite enjoying the Claire and Grace names being sat next to eachother on the below cardigan… (I miss that!)
