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.

I want, want, want, I got, got, got: ‘JOCKEY’ BOOTS.


‘JOCKEY’ Chelsea Boots, Topshop, £55.

As I mentioned about a week ago in my previous ‘Jockey’ Chelsea Boots post I was desperately after these boots… We went shopping in the West End this weekend and after giving up hope, I said “One last try in Topshop for those boots?”. So we went to the basement and the Shoe dept in Oxford Streets Topshop, I searched the shelves… and NOTHING. However, last year I managed to get my ‘AMELIE’ Topshop Boots on the ‘Buy It Now Regret It Later’ shelf, in my size… so with my last hope still hanging on by a thread I dashed over the shelf ‘just incase’. And yes, to my absolute amazement, there they were! MY boots, in my size! UNREAL.

OH AND it gets better….

As you may know, I used to work in Topshop Oxford Street this time last year and I bumped into a colleague who used to work on my dept… she gave me a ‘Friends and Family’ voucher enabling me to get 15% off my boots – to boot (bad pun, soz!)

BONUS ROUND INDEED.

Here’s some quick pics…Also, what is the best suede protector going? (Cheapish please??) Not the best idea getting red suede shoes in Winter…

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!)
