Last weekend, Topshop Canada rolled out the loungers and umbrellas for their summer takeover weekend pop-up shop. In anticipation of the first official Topshop (and Topman) store in Canada (coming in September to The Bay Yorkdale), shoppers were invited to browse the summer looks, and do some serious (Top)shopping under the sun. Luckily, one of the first people there, I was ecstatic to finally be able to get my hands on some of the items, that until now were either unavailable, or a big pain in the ass to buy (customs, duties, shipping…oh my!). I was in serious love with so many items at the pop-up, but seeing how my credit card is still hurting after my NYC trip, I had to be good, and walked away (after some considerable contemplating) with a lovely mustard-colored skirt, and a black panther top (which The Bay’s Suzanne Timmins and Christopher Sherman seemed to have a soft spot for as well).
All in all, a great time was had by all. And judging by the snaking line-ups around the parking lot at Queen St. and Soho St. all weekend long, I wasn’t the only one eager to finally snag some Topshop and Topman goodies. The only problem with pop-ups is that they are temporary, and once the weekend was over, I was left wanting more…Thankfully, September is just around the corner, and the (Top)shopaholic in me will just have to chill for now.
So, were you there this past weekend? Excited about Topshop/Topman Canada? Buy anything super cute? Share in the comments!
