River Island - my Shop of the Week

Not a normal choice of shops for me personally as my day to day look is a lot more comfort/smart/casual than high fashion.  But I wanted to take a peak at their Rihanna range and as with a lot of retailers at the moment, their sale is on.  Never one to pass up a browse on line, I have been pleasantly surprised.  Their fair prices seem to have won me over (but not so much so to risk a proper telling off from the husband for shopping AGAIN).  Delivery is £3.95 with free returns.  Be nice to see them offering free delivery to store like some other retailers. 

With regards to the Rihanna range, it's not for me.  A lot of crops and a very fashion led colour palette of black, grey white, acid yellow and denim.  But with prices as low as £20, I applaud them for letting all the young Rihanna fans have a piece of her style.  I know when I was younger if the Spice Girls had done a range with prices and pieces like this, I would have been there in a heartbeat.  Instead I made do with Bay Trading's take on their pinstripe suits.......

£18 top, £30 shorts
If I was going to buy something from Rihanna's range would definitely be one of these, I love high neck sleeveless Tee's

And some of my favourite sales picks;

£27 down to £15 (leather)
£25 down to £10
£35 down to £15
£25 down to £10
£30 down to £15
£45 down to £20, size 7's only left on line (leather)


  1. Some great pics Natalie. Love those flatties so will look in store.

  2. I am i n love with RI right now - I just got this dress from ASOS here and it is stunning!

  3. Keep forgetting about RI must go and have a nosey!

  4. The trouble with all these promoted collaborations is that they sell sooo much of everything that it will all be on ebay for 99p within a few months!

  5. I had the same RI inspirational moment the other week - I was AMAZED at some of their stuff - I am hoping to go in store soon and try some stuff on - looks amazing on the site but what about on me/you/us?


  6. Let me know if you find any Emma, I love them!
    Oh wow Joanna, that is gorgeous, can't wait to see pictures. Was looking for your little waterfall coat when I wrote the post to link back to you but couldn't find so must have gone, I really liked it on you.
    Me too Trea!
    Or it may go the other way and be double the price!
    Same as Fiona, I do need to go and examine properly for myself!

  7. I must admit my girls love RI and they have fab sales. My only purchase was a khaki jacket with contrast sleeves last autumn x
