Buying a gift for your friends or family can be difficult enough when they don't possess 'notions.'

What are notions, you ask? Well, it's essentially when a person has grandiose elements of extravagance; whether in terms of fashion, style, food & drink, décor or just in their everyday life.

They drink non-fat, no-foam, five-shot half-caffeine pumpkin spice latte in a special cup at a certain temperature and will refuse to do most activities due to footwear, except yogalates.

You'd never catch them drinking cans, especially not Tesco lager; they're most likely only drinking a craft beer that no one has heard of or a slimline tonic with lime cordial and a shot of vodka on the side.

Plebs such as us probably would take a taxi or public transport to a club, whereas someone with 'notions' might take a large limousine with white doves as their accessories.

According to the Urban Dictionary definition:

…You get the idea. It's luxurious hipster-ism.

So, how does one buy a present for someone who are that little bit too big for their boots? It's hard, but not impossible.

Here are our top 20 gifts for those with notions.. proceed with monetary caution.

Faux real, winter is well and truly on its way. "What does this mean?" I hear you ask. It means… it's time to get FURRY.

Finding the perfect coat can be a difficult, time-consuming and frustrating task. We've decided to do all the work FUR you, and compile a list of every coat that has caught our eye on the high street this winter season.

So far, brands such a Monki, Mango, Topshop and Zara have impressed us with their glamorous faux fur, but there are some KILLAH vintage websites such as Nine Crows, ASOS Marketplace and Beyond Retro which sell vintage faux fur items that have us collapsed on the floor in sheer fashion overdrive.

I mean, you're welcome.

Fur can be a tricky business to navigate, finding the right one to suit you is honestly like picking your new home. You're seeking comfort, warmth, and a place to sleep.

What? You can't deny that those coats are prime nap-time material. They're warmer than our hearts after watching pupper videos on Youtube.

Which one's your favourite?


Fans of Irish vintage collective Nine Crows will be delighted to hear that the brand will soon be stocked in Topshop.

For those seeking a non-digital experience, or who just want to snap up a unique piece while shopping on the general high-street this is big news.

Jean shopping can be a nightmare at the best of times. 

You enter the dressing room with an arm full of denim and a heart full of hope, and exit with a sense of frustration you never quite knew was possible. 

Too big, to small, too long, too wide – you could easily try on 50 pairs and still go home empty handed.

However, one high-street store wants to change the way we shop for jeans by making it easier to fit that perfect fit. 

Topshop have answered all our prayers with the  introduction of 'in-between' sizes for those of us who just don't fit in the traditional measurements. 

Can I get an Amen? 

It comes as the brand launches its new Denim Campaign which features various new styles if jeans for the upcoming season. 


A post shared by Topshop (@topshop) on

According to Topshop's website, the half-sizes are available in sizes W25, W27, W29 and W31, and for the styles Jamie, Joni, Mom, Straight, Jamie Flare, and crop.

The half-sizes are already available to buy online meaning the perfect pair of jeans is just a few clicks away. 



Topshop has abolished gender-specific changing rooms from its stores after a number of customer complaints branded the practice as "dated and dangerous." 

The news comes after one frustrated customers took to Twitter claiming they prohibited from using their preferred dressing room in a one of the retailer's Manchester branches.

Travis, who identifies as trans feminine and whose preferred pronouns are "they" and "them" wrote:“Hey @Topshop just experienced transphobia in your Manchester store. Not letting me use the changing room I decide is sh*t, sort it out.”

However, further confusion when one users responded with a screenshot of an email from Topshop (dated in July of this year) stating that its policy had already been changed – meaning Travis should never have been refused entry to the female changing facility. 

Clearly unsettled by the incident, Travis continued to vent their frustration is a series of tweets

Travis' experience sparked mixed reaction from Twitter users, with some offering messages of support while others questioned the need for such a change. 

Speaking to The Daily Mail, a spokesperson for the fashion retailer has since confirmed that “All Topshop and Topman customers are free to use any of the fitting rooms located within our stores.”

Topshop is not the first fashion retailer to be condemned for its 'transphobic' changing rooms policies, with Urban Outfitters having previously come under fire for similar practices.

Mules seem to be the footwear of the season, with everyone from Penneys to Prada selling them.

We totally fell in love with Prada's recent 'Black Suede Slipper' which was launched earlier this summer, and retails for roughly €530.

However, we have found a Topshop dupe that costs a fraction of the price.


A post shared by Renata Grilo (@regrilo) on

And you literally cannot tell the difference.

The Topshop pair come in at €34, so you know… you're basically saving yourself 500 quid.

We think we need to indulge in a bit of shoe shopping…
