In more To'sho news, here's my sister blister Pietra teaching film students in India, wearing her TopShop top. Love how her students have given her a cake that reads "Thankyou Dear Pietra."

I usually veer well away from nicking something from a 13-year-old, but this plaid shirt Tallulah bought in NY will not be mutton dressed as lamb on me, promise.

I asked a few bloggy friends over the pond to send me snaps of their Topshop clobber too.
Natalie is a personal stylist from Buckinghamshire, UK. "I bought this dress on a whim as was topping up an online order for free delivery! I think I paid around £45 for the dress full price which wasn't bad at all. It's so easy to wear for the day with flats but also dressed up with heels and is so comfortable. "

Trea is mum of two, lives in Northern Ireland, currently on maternity leave, works as a Civil Engineer and has an online boutique selling statement jewelry. "I bought the skirt last summer and have had quite good wear out of it. It works as a more casual skirt with flats, but also looks great with a glam black top and heels for a night out. The quality is great, it's very stretchy buy also has that 'sucky in' feeling that you get from spanx and who doesn't love that!"

Hollie lives in Stopsley, Luton. She used to work as a hairdresser at Toni and Guy but left to work at the airport, met hubby, had kids and then left there. Now a Brand Ambassador for a pushchair company called phil&teds and Mountain Buggy."White jeans (especially these waist-holding Joni) are a new fave of mine, I love a monochrome look. My Topshop biker jacket is a few years old now but perhaps has had the most use out of anything in my wardrobe- dressed with the white jeans it can make any tee look cool."

"A printed jumpsuit like my banana print one can be such an effortless and easy look without having to try hard, perfect for the beach! Mine sold out some time ago but I love this latest offering!"

"A bright top like my Topshop stripe one to make my outfit stand out with cut-off denim and not look so plain jane. Plus at £7 in the sale it's a steal."
Jane, who lives in Worcestershire: "I'm absolutely in love with camis; have a couple of Topshop ones as they're a great length, not too long but long enough to tuck in if you want. Plus they don't crease too, which is always a bonus especially from an ironing point of view!! This one is in one of my favourite colours; I absolutely adore this shade of red."Similar here in blue

Avril who lives in Northern Ireland, picked up her Topshop kimono from Depop - a new online ebay style app you can get on your phone."I bought it from a girl whose other items included denim hot pants, white patent leather Doc Martins and a neon yellow jersey tube mini skirt. So I'm guessing I'm not going to be a regular customer of hers :)
"Love the print, the shape and how light it is...as we're actually having a summer of sorts here. But the best bit? It's a size 8 (US 4)...so I can delude myself with every wear!
"Always love striking Topshop gold - it's a shop I adore looking round but it gets top marks in the 'Risk of Mutton' stakes so you have to be so careful what you buy. The jewelry is really cute though so when in doubt, I buy a necklace..."

Helen, below, says: "If you asked me 3 years ago if I ever entered Topshop to purchase anything at all I would have scoffed. I was such a clothes snob before I started following blogs. I truly believe, now, that my clothing choices made me look much older ( I am 45. ) I always pop into Topshop now, and love their tops in particular along with their 'Baxter' jeans. Here I am sporting some of my summer purchases. I know they are pretty conservative but that is just me :0) Everything seems to wash and wear well but I am aware that I have to be slightly selective, with what I buy, as arse-skimming shorts don't really suit and I shriek and run at the sight of a neon crop top!

So what do you reckon...had any success with Ye Olde Topshoppe?
