the british are coming; topshop & topman invades sd!

First batch of costumers to ever enter the store!!!
Last Thursday marked the Grand Opening of British fashion retailer TOPSHOP & TOPMAN in sunny Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego! The opening was a haze of a fashion frenzy as San Diegans queued up in line for their chance to be rewarded some pretty awesome prizes - ranging from free live-screen printing t-shirts, mystery gift cards worth up to $100, tickets to their VIP Opening Party, and the chance to win a drawing of a $1,000 shopping spree - all while listening to some pretty rad tunes from a lineup of DJ's. 

I was super stoked to check out the massive 17,500 square feet of a fashion monster and I'm happier than Taylor Swift's next ex-boyfriend I did!!! THIS. PLACE. IS. NIRVANA! And not just for the lovely ladies but also for my fellow dapper gents! We all know that the fellahs usually get shanked when it comes to getting some proper retail loving' but not this time, Satan! The TOPMAN section was dynamite! Everywhere I looked... BOOM! I wanted it all, I needed it all, I'm going shatter my little brother's piggybank (seriously, that kids allowance is ridiculous!!) when I visit home to get it all! Yup, it's that killer! I'm beyond ball tickled to have TOPMAN here in San Diego and I can't wait to see how much debt what MANfits come my way! 

Here's pics of the opentivities!

The visual team did an insanely awesome job!
I just like the yellow!
Again, visual team killing it!
What my dreams are made out of!
And then the VIP Private Party went down at the Moniker Warehouse in the trendy East Village in downtown! A cool and fashionable crowd showed up to celebrate Topshop and Topman's San Diegan cherry popping and let me tell you, the Brits now how to throw an awesome shindig! Not only did the place look and feel like hipster London but rocking the night away with Dead Right! (Graham Knoxx is a foxx!!!) and the ridiculously rad Cold War Kids aint so bad at all! Actually, how do you say epic night in British? Oh yeah...

If you're ever in San Diego make sure to pop on over to Fashion Valley Mall to check out Topman and Topshop, along with other au currant fashion shops!

Peace, Mothalovahs!
