My favorite SPA brand (TOPSHOP)

Do you know what does SPA stand for? 

It is Speciality store retailer of Private label Apparel, named by Donald Fisher who founded GAP.
GAP itself is included in SPA and Forever21, H&M, UNIQLO, and ZARA are also SPA brands.
These manufacturers design, produce, deliver, and sell their products by themselves.  

I want to introduce one of my favorite SPA brands here.



LONDON Fashion Week

TOPSHOP is a UK retailing brand.  It is not as much popular as other SPA brands because its business is not so much worldwide compared to the other brands.  The brand offers British casual style and it is unique that it collaborates with Cristopher Kane and Kate Moss!

TOPSHOP gives student 10% discount all round year if they show their school ID at the shops!
They can get the discount online too.  Unfortunately, they don't ship to Japan.




Although you like mannish style but you don't totally want to be like a boy, you can add femininity on your mannish style.
You can tie your hair up, which I think is sexy.
Feminine shoes like high heels also make your mannish style feminine instead of wearing loafer.
You can also bring a small shoulder bag.
Clothes can be simple but you should have various kind of accessories because they are helpful to change your style!


My Fashion Icon (Olsen Twins)

Ashley Olsen & Mary-Kate Olsen
Olsen Sisters

Many of you must have seen a drama, "Full House."  I also used to watch the drama when I was a kid. 
Do you still remember the cute baby in the show?
Olsen Sisters acted the baby in turn and they became today's famous fashion icons!
I like Ashley's style better than MK's.  MK dresses like a rocker with too much black.
They launched a luxury apparel brand "THE ROW" in 2007.
They try to manufacture T-shirts with a high quality and its clothes and accessaries are made in the US and Italy.
I think this brand is more like Ashley's style which is more sophisticated.


What's trendy in 2012 Spring

Have you bought anything for the next spring yet?
The photo of shoes above shows new trends you will see in the coming spring.

1. Floral
2. Metalic
3. Bi-Color
4. Hickory Stripe
5. Ankle Belt (shoes only)

You will see these trends not only on shoes but also on clothes and bags too.
I personally do not like loud style such as floral, but it is much easier to wear floral shoes than floral clothes!
If you don't like to be loud but you want to be trendy, you can always try with small items.
