Topshop-pink-pom-pom-headba

Crime Report Received from: Officer Sara

Alleged Crime: Item is a pink headband with “zany” pom poms. Enough said.

Scene of Crime: Topshop

Fashion Police Comments: Last we checked, Halloween was still a few months away, so the real mystery here isn’t why this item exists, but how on earth it managed to be SOLD OUT?

Verdict: Guilty as charged.

    It’s actually just a thing to do with the Topshop website – whenever they upload stuff on a morning, it usually says SOLD OUT for the first couple of minutes. I’ve noticed that with a couple of items… I doubt that anybody in their right mind would buy this neon nightmare, lols.

    Wow. I’m suddenly struck by a sadistic desire to see someone wearing it. Damn it, curiosity…

    Be afraid. Be very afraid. Whats sad about this? Not even as a 6 year old that loved everything fluffy asnd pink would i have worn that. The fact that it’s meant for adults…

    Oh wow. I feel that it would be acceptable, although perhaps not very nice, if it just had one little pom pom on it. But that’s just horrific, and helps to further my point about how too many people think that because something is sold at Topshop, it must be instantly cool. This is not cool!

    One word – Festivals. And one-off day gigs. That is where you will see these, paired with furry boots and tutus. Seriously – check out Tiesto Victoriapark on Flickr. I was there and saw them in the wild. Didn’t take a pic, though – still coming to grips with my new cameraphone…

    Well it isn’t sold out on here…

    Perhaps the Fashion Police have the power to see into the future? Or perhaps Topshop decided to stock more of these god-awful hair thingees for the gob-smacked masses who want them, lols.

    You can bet Paris Hilton will get herself one of these.

    I think Topshop occasionally puts a hugely limited amount of stock on their website so if one or two misguided souls buy it, it becomes “sold out” and then everyone wants it just because it’s sold out.
