River Island edit

I used to be a huge fan of River Island, back in the day when their shop interiors were all wood-cladding, their carrier bags were patterned with a huge cat on a Victoriana-style background and the labels in their clothes said Charlotte Halton.

In the intervening years, I've hardly dabbled at all in River Island, but the past few months have seen me wandering back over there a little more. Like most high street retailers, you have to hunt for the items which don't major on the polyester, but their bags and shoes in particular are good, with a large selection made from leather. Here's what I'm liking of theirs at the moment.

Top row, left to right
Black diamante rose gold studs, £3; Grey pointed cage stiletto sandals, £75; Beige Baroque embellished cardigan, £50; Structured leather tote bag, £70; Navy long sleeve angora jumper, £40.

Middle row, left to right
Grey metallic azteec print jumper, £32; Black floral pencil skirt, £25; Blue snake pointed court shoes, £50; Grey metallic chiffon back dip hem t-shirt, £20; Lime green leather bowling bag, £85.

Bottom row, left to right
Silver caged sandals, £30; Black embellished box clutch bag, £30; Gold tone and black enamel ring, £8; Cream leather bowling bag, £65; Cream textured contrast trim sweatshirt, £32.


  1. Those blue shoes... nice... remind me of Carrie's blue shoes in Sex and the City. Tempted.

    1. Yes, they are like Carrie's - you could just get a pair of silver diamante clip-on earrings, clip them on at the front and they'd be dead ringers!

  2. So glad they have sorted their bags out! They are all SO nice. Also love the navy jumper and the pencil skirt.

    1. Those are my top two too Jonesy, wish they did that jumper in lots of different colours. x
