Hot Topic is a shop that I used to hurry past when we visited America when I was younger. It just seemed like one of those really cool “teen” shops that was slightly goth, slightly hardcore and just a little bit scary. When I got older though, I realised the awesomeness it held within, from Harry Potter T shirts to Disney bikinis, everything in between and far more.
Nowadays, I’m not so scared to go in – in fact, my sister and I take advantage of our trips to America to stock up on Hot Topic purchases nowadays. And in the meantime, I spend a lot of time doing exactly this – browsing the website and creating wishlists of items I would buy from Hot Topic were it only a little closer and UK deliveries didn’t incur such massive fees!
This is my pick of my current favourites off the site – a mixture of various Disney styles, eras, colours and prints, with everything from simple dresses and tops to homeware and shoes. There’s a bit of theme I’m sensing here with the majority of my items picked being Peter Pan, classic Disney and a few newer Pixar ones, but definitely an overwhelming Peter Pan thing going on here – not sure why as it wasn’t ever my favourite film and I’ve barely watched it, but I think it’s one where the story behind it just sticks with you and has such a classic Disney-ness to it.
