Metallics, Furs, Velvet all at TOPSHOP – The Collection Review

I noticed most of my posts have been focused on luxury footwear designer collections. I love me some luxury shoes even though I cannot afford them yet. I promised to do a splurge versus steal post sometime ago, but I’ve been struggling with that especially as I have a few issues with copies, imitations and inspired pieces and where to draw the line. I will still air my views on that when I can find the right words… I’m a high street brand girl as far as my pocket will permit and looking through some of my favorite brands lately, I couldn’t help but get excited. It’s fall season and there’s a lot of velvet, fur, metallic, suede and beautiful, intricate details going on in the luxury world. The high street brands have decided not to leave us out and have come up with and stocked up on so many gorgeous pairs of shoes, I feel like I just died and went to shoe heaven. It feels like the 60’s era again. In the next couple of weeks I’d be reviewing some of my favorite high street brand collections and today I’d start with TOPSHOP. Topshop is a British multinational fashion retailer of clothing, shoes, make-up and accessories. It has around 500 shops worldwide – of which some 300 are in the UK – plus online operations. The quality of the shoes are top notch and I’ve rocked a few of their pieces.

“In Her Closet” Episode 4- Forty And Fabulous, It’s Helen And Irene.

 It keeps getting better. I absolutely enjoy doing these interviews because the responses make my heart smile. I mean why would anyone not love shoes life? So this week, I have 2 women with me, they are not celebrities or in the media in anyway and it took quite some to get them to do this episode. What I found intriguing about them is how they still manage to look so fabulous at 40 with such great taste in shoes.  Everyone knows how much I love to be #teamfitfam (Don’t judge me by my size), but seeing these women who at 40, with families and businesses to run, manage to burn an average of 500calories a day (at the very least) working out and eating healthy, inspires me to work towards a fitter 40’s. Yea, they all say its to be healthy, but with their shoe obsession, I know it’s low key for the heels. Let me introduce you to these beautiful women before we get into the interview. Irene Fajana: is the young at heart (and body) mother of 3 kids with a home accessories store who is totally in love with what she does which is being a wife, mom, entrepreneur and fashionista. She loves to travel,is  the ultimate party planner and the perfect soccer mom. Not until I saw pictures from her 40th birthday did I believe her age. Helen Anatogu: a mother of 2kids, CEO of a software business incubator and a business lawyer with past corporate counsel at Nokia, Shell and Microsoft. Sugarcraft, gardening, music and art are some of her favorite things but none of these trumps her time spent with her kids and evenings out with...
