Guest Blogger: TopShop Chicago Preview!

With me AND Gabriel in New York for Fashion Week during the Chicago TopShop opening, I was determined to find someone to cover the preview event.  Thankfully, Aramide from The Sassy Peach came to the rescue. Check out her recap!

Hey there ChiTown Fashionistas! Aramide here from The Sassy Peach bringing you the scoop on the exclusive VIP preview of Topshop's brand spankin' new Chicago location!

As you may or may not know, Chicago is the second city in the US to get a Topshop location (New York being the first) so we are l-u-c-k-y! Since your editor Nikia was off to NYFW, I stepped in to be her eyes at the new store at 830 N. Michigan. Upon entering, I knew I had just stepped into every fashion girl's dream world. The store is beautifully constructed and laid out. The adorable and enthusiastic personal shopper, Ryan, gave me a personal tour of everything the store had to offer.

After giving me the rundown of the accessories, makeup and women's fashion on the main level, I was taken down to what I like to call fashion heaven: the shoe section! Let me tell you, it is glorious. The most gorgeous shoes live down there and are ready for you to snatch them up.

When the shoe heaven swooning was over, Ryan took me into the Personal Shopping suite. Topshop offers a free personal shopping service that you can use whenever you're there. I definitely think it is the way to go if you want fashion advice and a second opinion while shopping. The suite is swanked out with plush seating, cupcakes, drinks and private fitting rooms. Your personal shopper will help you with whatever you need and you will leave feeling pampered. I highly recommend Ryan if you plan on trying out this service!

On the top level is Topman, the Men's section, and it does not disappoint. It had me wanting to buy just about everything for the special man in my life. Everything for the sporty/casual, suited up, or cool and laid back guy is there. The shoes and boots were my favorites.  Gents, definitely go take a look!

All in all, Topshop/Topman has plenty to offer for everyone.  Definitely go see it for yourself. I'm sure from here on out it will be one of my haunts. Have you been to the new Topshop yet? What did you think?
