    The Best Store Yet!

    I love to shop at Hot Topic because most of the clothes over there are cool and not too girly (actually, I hate girly stuff)! My favorite clothing from Hot Topic is everything from Tripp NYC, Lip Service, graphic tees, pick a clothing. Too bad my parents hated my new clothes...

    Such a Wonderful Place!

    Hot clothes, hot people, Hot Topic. God, I love that store. My favorite place at the mall followed closely by Spencers and GameStop. First off, the clothes are amazing. The only place that sells Avenged Sevenfold hoodies (not even Spencers carries those around here). Plus, the...

    My Favorite Store

    I love hot topic! They always have nice bondage pants, band shirts, different type of shoes, and nice jewelry. Their clothing is not too girly either. I love the versatility!

    Best Store Ever!

    I love that they bring so many different styles in. It's def a one stop shop. The skirts are wayy cuter than anywhere else. I also love the heels I am a huge shoe fan and I'd say 30% of my faves have come from hot topic. It's just to bad I live in Canada and have...

    So I was at the mall with my family,

    and I was in there. And my mom came in and was like "it's so oppressing in here" so I just brushed it off.. And she then said "I don't see why anyone would want to stay in there that long" like, thanks mom.. This is one of the many reasons I just don't talk to you.

    My favorite cloths all came from hot topic! But it's kind of expensive. The nearest one to me is over an hour away because I live waaaaaaaay out in the country.

    Hot Topic = Awesomness

    There's honestly no other apparel/everything store. Its my favorite. The clothhing there is unique with cute little faces of characters you cant find anywhere else, like Gir from Invader Zim or Hello Kitty. Thats a major reason I love the store: to express yourself and not to...

    There's Just Something About It.

    I'm not goth or emo or anything. But it's just a cool and kinda fun (to me any way) atmosphere. I don't really buy much there other than knee-high socks, body spray, or jewelry. It smells kinda like an auto shop, but it just feels like home to me...? I just love it. :)

    As a Treat

    Hot Topic is mad expensive, but I go to it once in a blue moon when I have a little extra spending money and set a limit on the amount I'm going to spend. I LOVE their Hello Kitty stuff and their Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends stuff. I also like their arm warmers. I also...

    So I turned in my application on Sunday

    and had a short interview with the worker I gave it to and she said she'll make sure the hiring manager sees it and that they'll call me if positions are open. So that's awesome I guess and so I'm curious how long will it take for them to call me.

    They turn the music down so it doesn't blast me out. Some of the clerks are so young that they don't know the history of what they are selling. So I help tghem out.

    I don't, actually. I just want to put it out

    here that Hot Topic steals art from online artists to put on their shirts. They have no permission from the artists and the artists don't even know that their art is being used until it's too late. They don't get any credit or payment from their designs. Please do not support...
