I went for a bit of a binge today.  Not even the good kind of all-you-can-eat-cake binge (damnit…. when am I get back to Hong Kong for dessert buffets).  Nope, it was sadly a Topshop binge.  I say sadly because what with the few opportunities that I get to shop these days, I should use my time more wisely.  That said, the few opportunities also happen to fall upon un-shop-like hours – i.e. hours that only Topshop operates (rumours of 24hr shopping hours at Topshop true or false?).  Still, I had a few intentions in mind.  To check out the new collabs (check…got a Richard Nicoll grey jersey-topped shirt…so bloody predictable…).  To see whether the peach Emma Cook boots were in yet (yes they are and they're effing sold out…they never made it online but are apparently getting more in… I'm forced to try a sneaky source to see if I can nab them before I shoot off to Paris next week).  To see the EDIT section that I talked about a while ago because lovely Kat (blub…she's is off back to Melbourne…blub) had already been.  Whilst I was tempted by a bit of Marios or Nakkna….it was the KTZ which I was really after.  I missed their Fash Off on the last day of London Fashion Week but I did see that they got New Gen support this season and their A/W 09 stuff is really really fantastic…more about that when I get hold of pics.

Their S/S 09 of gem-encrusted leggings, tees, sweaters, satin dresses and bodies are all at the EDIT section of Topshop and ripe for touching, taking the piss out of (so many ppl were spewing "WTF?" at the KTZ rack) and of course buying.  I went for the first and last action – a lot of touching and a fair bit of buying with the sweatshirt and the tee and were it not for the fact that they didn't have my size, I would have gone for the leggings too.  I love how the gems actually feel quite weighty when on, in a way that a lot of gem-encrusted things don't.  These are two of my frump-out-at-home ways of wearing them.  I'll be back with vaguely more exciting outfits soon.

    Oh Susie! I’ve been sporadically bursting into tears all day… I just want to stay!
    I tried on that jumper when I was in topshop but it made me look like a weird midget with short arms. You on the other hand, look pretty amazing.

    I am so upset with Topshop for not puttin those Emma Cook boots online!! I saw the grey ones, but they didn’t even put all sizes up.
    But these shirts look lovely!

    Ah I saw this stuff when I made a 10 minute dash to Topshop but I have to say I was pretty disappointed. It was really expensive considering the quality, although I did like the leggings but they would have been that annoying mid calf length on me which I don’t like. But a DIY version of the leggings is do-able.

    I saw the KTZ stuff yesterday, and thought it was amazing though my mother looked at me like i was a crazy person, oddly the Emma Cook peach boots where in there yesterday, so maybe they managed to get some more in?
    Loved the stuff topshop had around for fashion week, i love the big gold hair band i made lol

    Jacky: I went and found only a pair in size 4….booo….
    And yes booo to TS for not putting any of the EDIT stuff online…. pricepoints too high perhaps?
    DJM: You’re right about the mid-calf length….would have to wear some cut-off tights to lengthen them..ah well didn’t have my size anyway.. I like that puffed up ribbing effect though that is quite difficult to achieve DIY….maybe you could do a cool job of it….
    Amanda: I have SO many ponderings about the NYC store….
