Topshop Horror Girl
Okay, so there is no Topshop in the States yet except New York; thus I can never see the pieces in person and so I get slightly verklempt when they release collections. Annnnd, yes, the clothes are made for 16 year old emo kids. But I can't help it: these shoes? To die for. This sweater? So cute. And this? Fantastic.
Are they made in sweatshops from materials sourced irresponsibly? Likely. Will they fall apart after a season? Probably. Two very good reasons to avoid this stuff. But the eye candy sure is nice.
With the new Runaways film coming out next year, leave it to Topshop to get in early on the latest incarnation of the 70s punk/glam/hair metal hybrid trend that will be all the rage with the kiddies soon.
No Topshop for me, but I just realized this will make thrifting the real-deal goods from this era just that much harder. Feh.
