Irelia...Any thoughts?

So I have been trying to main top for awhile now, and I've been playing different champions such as Jarvan and Wukong, but i just bought Irelia and i can't wrap my head around it. I'm used to champions after the 3rd or 4th time, Jayce being the exception, that i play them, but irelia has me baffled. I feel really weak and pointless early, and i seem to die quiet often, that being because i'm play a very aggressive play style. I got pretty strong late, but i don't want to be like relying on late game, cause what if we don't get there... IDK any thoughts? Tips?
