Online shopping: Kate Moss for Topshop

Clockwise from top left:
Broderie Anglaise dress, £60.
Embroidered Tunic Dress, £60.
Daisy print tea dress, £60.
Kate’s 50s-style dress, £45.

Wait. What? Kate Moss for Topshop garments that I’d actually consider wearing?

I’m quite mad for a good summer frock, and these little lovelies are perfectly wearable. Not sure that I’ll actually follow through to the check-out, though (but I do quite like the white tunic dress).

The first (and last) time I considered La Moss involved some rather hot, sweaty and downright undignifying moments in the dressing room. (Hey! Not as dirty as it sounds! You know that manic hopping-on-the-spot-fight-dance you do when you’re stuck in a top that was clearly designed for a child, not a grown woman? That was me. I choreographed a new version. I like to think of it as a breakaway-pop pastiche.) Sigh.

Of course, there's also the problem of it being so bleeding obvious.

So, what say you? Can you be bothered?

    Hmm, I’ll certainly go and browse (after the hysteria dies down), but me and Kate Moss are definitely not the same shape!

    Oh, tell me about it! Her range isn’t exactly cut for women with tits, tums and arse (ie. me). I checked it out today and it’s fairly unimpressive.

    Straight up and down is a common problem with Topshop, I cannot buy a pair of trousers there, ever. Mind you, a friend of mine wears lots of Topshop gems and she has huge boobs, though I think she gets her stuff altered professionally.
