Personal Shopper?! …Don't mind if I do!

I have long accepted that I can’t be skilled and talented in everything. When it comes to fashion, I get by, but by no means can I stay ahead of the game! I like to keep my wardrobe on trend by updating with key pieces every now and again which I like and all importantly, suit my body shape.

A few weeks ago, I spotted a competition on Facebook being run by Frame. It was for the chance to win a Personal Shopping experience at Topshop Oxford Circus and to be fed and watered with champagne and nibbles. Quickly as I could, I emailed my entry and soon after got a response telling me I had won!

I completed the brief for 1 activewear outfit and 1 evening/daywear outfit. I explained that for active wear I’d quite like to look like I walked out of a Ministry of Sound Pump it Up DVD, whilst for the other outfit I tend to wear pinks and greens a lot.

The selection of clothes chosen for me by Jo

Upon arrival, I received my much anticipated glass of champagne and was promptly introduced to Jo, my Personal Shopper (and maybe new best friend!). She showed me to Suite 4 where a beautiful selection of clothes were awaiting.

Like I said, I’m no style icon, so I was open to all the outfits Jo had pulled for me! Any amateur or professional shopper knows you can’t judge a piece by the hanger!

My favourite active wear outfit

My favourite activewear outfit (pictured) was a pair of tie dye leggings, white crop top, and grey zip up! My favourite daywear outfit from the selection being a pair of khaki skinny jeans with a floral blouse which can be dressed up for evening with some wedges or down with some vans.

I am very happy with the purchases I made last night especially as it has been years since I shopped in Topshop due to being overwhelmed by the size of the store! And today I am sporting one of the outfits (coral skinny jeans, cream Tshirt top and my wardrobe staple-white vans!)

Huge thanks to Frame, to Jo and to Topshop 🙂 …and be aware that this service is free of charge!

Elle 🙂 x
