Hesperidium

hes·per·id·i·um The fruit of a citrus plant, like an orange.
[I will use this word for the rest of my life. hah, not.]


A couple mornings ago my dad walks in, saying something about Topshop. Of course, this shocked me beyond belief, how did my lovely father know about Topshop? It turns out that FORTUNE MAGAZINE wrote an article featuring Topshop/Sir Philip Green and how it is migrating over to the states. (Sir Philip Green is the billionaire behind Topshop, and he was also knighted in 06. I thought this was interesting, so I wanted to share! Click to enlarge, I apologize for my imperfect scanning skills.







Any new black 100% cotton tights are the most comfortable thing in the world, dont you think? I want to sleep in them, haha.

I love the picture with the balloons!!! Amazing. If only I am not so scared of them bursting!

savvymode said...

Top Shop has interesting clothing and very affordable. I purchased a pair of pearl beaded jean for a very reasonable price which would have cost an arm and a leg elsewhere. Though, some pieces won't last through a couple of washing.

TW said...

Nice! THeres baloons!

Hello, thanks for the comment. How did you find our lil ol' blog?s

Shen-Shen said...

I hope we get Topshop here in the states, ahhhh!

And I'm a little slow with layouts, so this one took several hours.. I'd say at least 5 hours, although I'm sure people who are more skilled can do it in two hours.

It always freaks me out when my dad knows about fashion or girl things that I wouldn't expect him to know about.
Is Topshop really coming to the US???!!!! I might just die...

miss a. said...

My dad clips out all the fashion articles from Wall Street Journal and gives them to me. They're usually about LVMH and its shareholders/mergers/buy outs, etc.

missie.eng said...

OMG! Topshop come to the U. S. please! Even if I can't afford you!

(HAHAHA I'll make sure to use hesperidium alllllll the time, too.)

My uncle is very nice and always separates the Sunday paper so I can pick up all my sections at once: the Datebook, the Style section, and the comics. :D
