New York, I love you, but you're bringing me down (again).

A few months ago I saw Sarah Morrison post on the Missbehave blog that Topshop was coming to New York. It almost seemed too good to be true-- I wasn't sure if I believed it because it was one sentence, and, having been brainwashed by my school and the neverending use of MLA citations, I have a hard time believing things when sources go uncited. They did. I continued to live. I got to go to Topshop in Tokyo and at it was enough for me.

So I'm subscribed to the Topshop newsletter, of course, and my disbelief was suspended.
Topshop's coming to Broadway and Broome, which happens to be in the proximity of one of my favorite shopping areas in the world. I'm incredibly jealous, not to mention they're throwing a bunch of parties at McCarren Park Pool to celebrate!

Topshop NYC Party Line-Up:
7/20: The Liars, Fuck Buttons, Team Robespierre
7/27: MGMT*, Black Moth Super Rainbow, The Ting Tings
8/3: Black Lips, Deerhunter, King Kahn & His Shrines, Tall Firs
8/10: TBA
8/17: Aesop Rock, Panther, TBA
8/24: TBA

I'm all for MGMT, The Ting Tings and the Black Lips so I'm especially jealous in those parts.
But you know, this is all quite interesting-- one look at the Topshop New York website is enough to tell you that I guess Topshop is really fascinated with Brooklyn hipsters, which is a little disconcerting. I've never even been to Brooklyn and I'm kinda done with Brooklyn hipsters.

P.S. Fifi Chachnil is designing a cheap lingerie line for Topshop. Reeaalllly excited. Must get! Can't let it slide like I did with the Mimi Holliday x Topshop line!

In other news, Pocky is delicious, and I'm glad I have some.

*Live the dream, Valentina. Go and seduce Andrew VanWyngarden for me.

HAHAHA! Girl, you know I will! I'm planning on going to MGMT at McCarren and I'm also gonna see them at Lolla. Resistance is futile, Andrew VanWyngarden will be mine.

I'm pissed cause Topshop is opening right down the street from my aunt and uncle's but I'm going to be in Cali already. Damn it, I knew I should have gone to NYU!

Ai yi yi, NY makes all other states look like one horse towns. ATL finally gets an HM and then NY gets Topshop. Christ! Ohai and the Black Lips are awesome! They are the best local band we have! Sometimes band members show up at random places, like I saw Cole at the Diplo show! And Pocky's delish! And MGMT is awesome! Like, mega rad! And V, I'll see you in CA! And Sarah, you should move there too when you get out of HS and we'll all get an apt in Inglewood together! Yayyy!!!

Yes, yes, yes! I can see it now, all three of us computer-obsessed gals chilling in our fab apartment. Greatest idea ever.
