Top of the Shops

Hold on to your wallets people, there’s another Topshop in town! Located in the former River Island spot in Arnotts, it appears that crunch time has not hit the fashion industry in Ireland. With River Island moving to its new enormous location on Henry Street, a brand new Topshop and Topman opening in its old spot and the impending opening of American Apparel opposite Trinity College, it seems there is a new reason to be broke that has nothing to do with tax increases.
Topshop and Topman are celebrating the new store in style giving away free cupcakes from the organic home-baking store, The Cake Cafe, and a free potted African Violet when you spend €50 or more in Topshop Arnotts and Stephen's Green.
Although it is a crime against fashion to slander the opening of a shiny new Topshop, having four Topshops and three Topmans in a one kilometre radius seems a bit like overkill. Of course, this will never be a factor in my conscience if they have those fantastic summer dresses in store as modelled by Lily Allen during her performance at BBC 1 Big Weekend in Swindon. *swoon*
