As you entered Top Shop, there were makeup artists from Sephora doing free makeovers.
DJ Lissie Trullie was spinning killer tunes from the first floor mezzanine.
However, first stop for me was shopping business which when it comes to me and Top Shop generally means up to the top floor shoe salon. Lo and behold the shoes I'd been lusting after, had missed out on online, and had my husband checking for at least three times a week, were in stock! The Ashish Zebra wedges to be precise! They had just arrived the day before, and I was luckily able to find my size.
The fabulous service by Anthony and Samantha couldn't be topped. These guys know their shoes, Anthony even remembered the name of the shoes I was wearing that I purchased when they first opened way back in the spring! I will definitely be calling on them in the future to get my shoe fixes -- one of the best things about Top Shop shoes is that no matter the height, I find them to be the most comfortable around!
Next stop the second floor "Vogue's Edit Shop" to see the Vogue editors do their thing, discussing key Top Shop trends for A/W.
Behind the editors was a display of key trends including... a Christopher Kane crocodile dress. I happen to be of the mind that these animal prints are going to be somewhat of an iconic Christopher Kane look owing to the previous (much more expensive, I might add) incarnations, and wouldn't be surprised if this is not the last of them (actually I do hope it isn't, I love them!) I was thrilled to see it in person, a week previous to the launch.
There were also free cookies from Eleni (and they were so incredibly delicious -- this being said from a woman who goes for savoury over sweet any day), and free Fiji water passed out by the lovelies pictured above.
This was also where you could pick up your Fashion's Night Out Tee. 40% of the retail proceeds went to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.
Something many of you many not realize is that Top Shop's Style Advisor service is free, and well worth it if you are looking to add some key pieces to your wardrobe. Make an appointment by asking in store on the 3rd floor, or going to topshop.com/styleadvisor

In all, although I was covering the event I still had a great time! Thank so much to my magic pixie who made this happen, as well as the gracious Top Shop PR department!
