Looks from Topshop's Spring/Summer line
SOHO—For all the Topshop fans out there, Blog Cuts on the Bias has a peek of the British chain's Spring/Summer collection. It will be the first of many that we eager New Yorkers will be able to fondle when they open the doors to their Soho flagship here in March. If that's not enough for you, The Cut has a few scans from the Topshop Spring/Summer lookbook. Perhaps by the time we're able to shop there, this whole recession thing will be history. One can hope.

COBBLE HILL—From the comments we've received on yesterday's Trader Joe's Brooklyn 'Wire, it sounds like the location has the same issues as the one on 14th Street. Namely, it's too popular, and they're selling out of multiple items. One disgruntled shopper: "Yeah, my roommates and I went to that place last night and it was fucked. No veggie burgers, chicken patties, etc. Zero bread, low on non-dairy milk, and other refrigerated items. We ended up getting most of what we wanted, but it was still a total bummer and had to visit another store closer to home for the rest." Remember when everyone was so eager for this place to open? The honeymoon phase is over. [Racked Comments]
