I love London. In fact, through my old job I used to go there for work and almost moved there, that is until I met my future husband here in San Francisco. I loved that I was the one with the "accent" and that thanks to my gay friend Paul, I learned the ins and outs of faking a true British accent as well. We'd run to Stella McCartney's botique at lunch or I'd hear the latest gossip about Becks and Posh shopping somewhere around town. At work, I had a view of the London Eye and the Thames river. I also passed Buckingham Palace on the double decker bus as I rode into work. How fun is that?
Of course, London is expensive! I shopped at Top Shop at the recommendation of Paul's boyfriend who told me it was THE place to shop for young women. I entered the Oxford Circus store with the blasting sound of Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" and realized that I was in LOVE with Topshop. There it was, lots of floors of trendy affordable fashion in a very unaffordable city, I was hooked. For some reason, I remembered that the store was interested or is going to have a store in San Francisco. (Did I dream this?) So when I looked it up on Google, I ended up getting a link to Topshop's San Francisco Collection and saw there version of Bohemian Hippies which in some cases looks more Kate Moss than some of the pieces in the Kate Moss Collection.
Here's some of the pieces I would love to snatch up! (I've converted the £ to $.)
