TRAVEL, TOP SHOP & TOP CITY

I am so privileged to be able to live near, and work in a city as beautiful as Cape Town. Most people whose ever been there are green with envy, and most of them would like to be able to live in the mother city. Cape Town attracts a large amount of tourists from abroad, and obviously commands high end labels for the sophisticated market. Hence the influx of more of the luxury and high end brands like Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and the likes. We have also been seeing many of the high street stores like Zara and Top Shop coming to our continent. No doubt, Cape Town is very trendy and fashionable, and caters for all tastes and styles. We see a variety here, from bohemian, trendy, classy, elegant, funky and whatever you can imagine. In a cosmopolitan city, anything goes. I was overjoyed to finally have received confirmation of Top Shop opening there in April when I paid a visit to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront yesterday. The V & A is a very popular stop and a "must see" for anybody who visits this stunning city for the first time, with fashion, food, flowers, department stores, home ware and dining options abound. Top Shop caters for a broad spectrum and is always on trend.  Welcome Top Shop, all eyes on you!
 
The dress below is on my shopping list for the opening of the new store.... A skater skirt is just so versatile, worn with tights, a cheeky pair of heels, and a cropped jacket, and this could become a winter staple!
