Also whipped up a new batch of business cards. I needed new ones since graduation anyways, and business cards are a must have for networking and what not.
Since the career fair was downtown, and the new TOPSHOP capsule was also downtown, it only made sense to head over after I was done at the fair! I was excited to check it out because they had some good pieces when I went to TOPSHOP in Barcelona. I was particularly looking for this belted trench cape that I found a month ago in Europe but didn't buy.

Why didn't I buy it? Because it was €114 which is a whopping $155 CAD! This might not seem like much for a coat, but TopShop quality is similar to H&M (very HIT or MISS). For $155 I'm sure I can find something better! But alas, the TopShop cape went on sale on the US site a bajillion years ago for $50 when I didn't know the cape had existed yet so I lost out :(
Anyway, the TOPSHOP capsule turned out to be miniscule. It didn't have anything I was looking for. Very small selection with maybe 10 or 15 racks in total. So disappointed.

Walking around the Bay to go back downstairs, I noticed they had Jbrand and Current/Elliot. Did they always have these or are they new? Anyhow, still overpriced, but not as overpriced as Aritzia. Plus, The Bay has promotions all the time, so if you're looking for designer denim, The Bay might be a viable solution.
Oh well. I headed to H&M instead.
I wasn't really looking for anything in particular, but I did want to try the mesh dress Kerri posted about in this post.

This grey dress was MUCH better.

Finally, I tried on this light pink flutter sleeve top.

I wanted to wear this for an interview I have on Thursday, so I picked it up for $29.99.
All in all, it was a good day. Landed an interview from the fair, got a new top to wear to it, and got to hand out some of my home-made business cards. BOO-YA!
