We did it! Last week part of the S+C team got a much needed lesson in style from Topshop’s top duo stylists, Alex and Lindsay, in the personal shopping suite at The Bay on Queen West. Their bespoke uno a uno style advice service – on the top floor (obs) – offered free of charge to help us hone in the fashion shop’s most rad looks.
Lucky for us, they accepted our offer to drop in as I’m sure they do with everyone, it just surprised us.. seriously. We are now a fashion blog.
They had outfits from Topman (Topshop’s menswear shop) pulled together when we arrived. Somehow Alex sensed each of our personal styles (or lack thereof) beforehand. Impressive work Alex. We got hooked up with extra options on the racks and she threw in a few funny baseball caps, a backpack, and shoes J-Biebz would definitely wear, to remix our outfits and basically go wild in the change room throwing clothes everywhere before carefully putting them back on the hangers – because we don’t roll any other way. We did not hesitate to dive in and we’re all different people now after going through this experience together.
By the way guys, “Southbound style” is in, find it, wear it, and never forget it. You heard it here first!
It’s not unknown that all of us at S+C are fairly non-fashionable (we never talk about this fact, but people notice), but we’re strong advocates for the dapper and timeless look – mostly what our cool dads have taught us over the years. Topman, on the other hand, packs a gut punching arsenal of apparel that I strongly believe is unmatched by any other male focused shop in the realm of mega-retailers, and for a convincing price. They’ve simply thought about how everyone you think is cool (guy or girl) dresses and one ups them every time single time. It’s uncanny, but it’s right. So in light of this, book an appointment with one of Topshop’s stylists when you need to put an outfit together to go on your next OkCupid date so you can look stylish at least once in your internet relationship.
For our friends over in Vancouver, you guys have a Topman stylists ready to dress you immediately – there’s a couple photos from their shop up top, you have to guess which ones. Although, we’re confident that we’re hanging out with Topshop’s best stylists in Canada.
