London - A Day of TopShop

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Here is the thing, guys...I'm headed to London this weekend to wear a gorilla suit and run a 7K with my bff, Jen, for that crazy gorilla run thing.  (And hopefully meet IRL her and her!) Honestly, I kind of have Tunnel Vision for TopShop though - You guys are always showing these amazing things from there...and...and so I'm really excited to go - but also a little nervous - I mean, it's our first date and everything.
So I've done some reconnaissance on the website so that I'm kind of prepared for what I'm in for so when I walk in and the fuzzy noise starts in my head and I pull out my money that I can hopefully latch on to a voice of reason (who am I kidding, it will be Marks)..

So...first off - do you have any amazing recommendations for things to eat/see in London?
Second off, and more importantly...which sweater should I get???

OMG!!! The gorilla suit is so funny! Good luck!!!!
I'm actually going home next week lovely.

Right I have a list as long as my elbow, ok, maybe longer... maybe it's best i mail you instead darl. But, i have listed restaurants on my blog -type London in the search box or restaurants to bring up everything! You have to eat at my friends Bus restaurant in East London where Banksy's work is displayed.

I like: 4. Knitted Stitch Slouch Cardigan

I'm soooo jealous!! I miss London every day. It was such an amazing place to be....
So much to see, so much to eat. But I'm not sure what is current anymore. Hope you have fun!

Oooo sounds like a fun weekend :)

Natasha said...

good luck, that sounds amazing! I like number 3 or 4 best :) In term of places to eat, I loooove Carluccio's for Italian. There's one just off Oxford street, or there's one in Covent Garden (There are probably more, but those are the 2 I've been to). If you google, I think they have a website.
Have a fun weekend!

Cara said...

get the 1st one! and have fun!

My mom lives 5 min from London and I love it there....There is so much to see and one thing you should try is the traditional English breakfast and of course fish and chips from local places:)
(and to see the usual amazing stuff like: Tower Bridge, London Eye and Piccadilly Square)

I would go with all 4 ....I am loving them:)
Kisses,sweetie
Have a fun day:)

Katelyn said...

Very jealous! (about the London part not so much the gorilla suit!)

Trivia said...

2 or 4. :P
About London, you have to walk along the river, eat a falafel, and go to a market. Oh and if you have the time, go to Courtauld Gallery.I would tell you to go to the National History Museum but that takes almost a day to see*

How fun! I would love to go to London, you are going to have a ball! I love them all, but probably number 4 is most my style! XX!

jemina said...

I LOVE no 2 and no 4, and there are loads of places to visit in London, I LOVE it there, wish I could go with you sweetie :)). LOVE LOVE, Jemina, xoxo

Vinda Sonata said...

the cardigan no 2 is my favorite too.
i've been eyeing it for quite a long time in TS as well ;)

Stacey said...

I love #2 and i so envy your trip to London(i've never been). I'm definitely looking forward to the gorilla suit pic:-). xx

Andrea said...

How exciting, Topshop has some great pieces!If you like Indian food, you absolutely most got to Veerashwami (think I spelled it right)its the oldedst Indian restaurant in London and truly amazing - decor, ambiance, food, service - the best! Check out Harrod's too for good soaps and clothes too! Have fun!

Catita said...

Oh Krystal I love London!!! I have also a friend going there this weekend for a wedding and I also want to go!!! (acting like a baby now...). But just go to Oxford and all the boutique you can ever imagine will be there! Of course Topshop is high on the list, but I love Ted Baker and you must go to Covent Garden! Go to Dunes (love their shoes) and watch a musical! ALso don't forget the typical british breakfast, last 2 times we've stayed near the British museum and jsut went to lovely places near by...Just can't remember their names. And for the sweater, I am hesitating between 1, 2 &4. I have one similar to 2 and it is nice but I must admit I would go for 1 (since I have 2 already or a similar one) and 4 is also tempting me!! ;)
Have fun and in the marathon too!

What a crazy thing to do, sounds super fun! I lived in London for a year MANY years ago so my spots are probably outdated but make sure you ride around on the top front seat of double decker buses and wander through Picadilly Circus and Oxford Street. So much fun!

Ooo I love this game! I like the first one best, but I hate buying white sweaters because they only last me for one season(if that), so I would vote the last one. You could wear it your entire trip changing your under shirt and jewelry!

Lisa Griffin said...

Ohhh ahh i am jealous, i adore london! first off i like the last sweater. Ping Pong is a great dumpling place, eat lots of curry and some fish and chips. also my bf and i did a pub crawl in the middle of the day which was somewhat inappropriate but takes you through the upscale shopping district's tiny bars...and you get a t-shirt! ohh and tour the little castle with the jewelery archives, it's drool worthy! have a blast!!!!!

I had a fun time at Portobello Rd., a.k.a. Notting Hill :) Find out when their market is, I think on Saturdays? They have vendors in tents selling stuff for cheap. I got my favorite necklace EVER for only 10 pounds. It's this awesome gray watch necklace, that when you open it up, it's a dark violet/blue inside. LOVE it.

P.S. I haven't been to top shop, but I went to other great (and greatly priced) stores in Notting Hill!

ALSO, if you like the Beatles, you MUST do Abbey Road. MUST.

Ashley said...

You can also ask my friend Jackie (who conveniently has a blog) about what to do in London. She's from there!! :)

Gorilla suit haha. Don't know if I could actually run in one. I love the slouchy one. Very cute.

First and foremost... I vote for number 4.

Now, you're going to London? To run a 7K? In a gorilla suit? So many levels of awesome there.
