Hey Readers!
I was lucky enough to be invited to the official Topshop Topman Brisbane VIP Launch! I received my invitation from a local PR company including a very generous $25 gift card.
I've been a fan of Topshop for quite a while now. Last year I bought my first item from Topshop online, as there was no local store or even a store here in Queensland.

After visiting Topshop in Sydney in the middle of the year, I was so happy to actually be able to walk into a bricks and mortar store instead of browsing through pages of stock online. When I heard the news that Topshop would be opening in Brisbane, I'm pretty sure I screamed. No..wait. Yes, I actually did.

Top and Shoes - Bardot
Disco pants - Topshop
Clutch - Lovisa
Cuff - Diva
Ring - Sportsgirl

 The launch party was last night, the 4th December here in the new 3-storey Topshop Topman on the corner of Albert St and Elizabeth St in the Brisbane CBD. A my name was ticked off the list, I walked through the doors of Topshop straight in front of the media wall where a photographer was present. I had a photo with Hilton Seskin, the Chairman of Topshop Topman Australia. An interview with Hilton will be coming up soon here on Fashion Avenue.

After getting my photo taken, I was offered a lovely canapé by a friendly caterer. Canapés were offered throughout the night, alongside bubbly and non-alcoholic beverages. The service was fantastic and all of the staff members were very friendly. I loved the atmosphere that filled the building, from the ground floor to the third.

I met up with my lovely fellow Brisbane fashion bloggers and had a wonderful night browsing all that Topshop had to offer! Everyone was so excited and we mingled with other Brisbane fashionistas and industry professionals.

Alongside fashion bloggers and professionals, there were also some well-known people that graced the Topshop VIP launch alongside us. Ben Zabel from Big Brother 2013 was kind enough to get a photo with some of us and have a chat, Isabelle Cornish looked amazing in a metallic silver dress, while my sister and Gabby from The Luxuriante chatted away with The Veronicas. Amanda Shadforth from fashion blog, the Oracle Fox was also in attendance and looked fabulous as always.

There are two levels full of women's clothing and accessories. The top floor, however, is full of Topman. I actually think I like Topman more than Topshop! Ha.
But nevertheless, I couldn't resist taking some photos of the amazing shoes Topshop have to offer!

Topshop and Topman also offer a free Personal Shopping experience and have exceptional suites dedicated to catering to customers. They pick out clothes to suit you and style you from head to toe! There were cute cupcakes that were offered in the female Personal Shopping suite alongside comfortable lounges to relax on. 

Go visit Aischa from The Fashion Heist if you're looking to update your wardrobe and be a part of a unique Personal Shopping experience! Photo from my fellow fashion blogger, Yolanda from BNEstyle.

I was so happy to catch up with my fellow fashion blogger friends! Below are some photos we took.

A big thank you to all of the wonderful people involved! I had an amazing night!
