What. A. Day.
Work was challenging today and it has left me feeling drained. Despite that and running on an (almost) empty tank, I decided to stop by Topshop before I run my errands. Since Topshop is closing down soon, most things are 50 – 70% off. If you don’t earn much, you want to take advantage of sales like this!
I tried on a pair of culottes (It looks alright on me but I don’t love it), a white silk dress (The inner lining and the slit are ridiculously short), a red button up skirt (Too puffy on the hips. Since I have big hips, it’s not the right cut for me) and an IVY PARK workout pants (It’s see through) but nothing fits me. I did, however, get myself a wood ring from their Freedom range. This particularly piece was originally priced at $18 but I paid $2 for it. Score!
If you haven’t seen my favorite designs from Day 1, check it out here. Though you may notice some recurring trends on Day 2 (i.e. ruffles, sheer, pops of red, the monochrome palette etc.), there was noticeably more sparkle, intricate embellishments as well as innovative material use.

Since most of these pieces are wearable in real-life, which ones would you choose? As for me, I’d rock Christian Dior’s first look during the day and save Georges Hobeika’s gorgeous blue number (the last look) for a fancy event. But let’s be honest, don’t we want to wear them all?
