I'm not going to lie...

But 'River Island' has never been my cup of tea. I can't put my finger on what it is that I'm not keen on, but I know that when I walk into the store I want to turn around and walk back out. I know I shouldn't really be admitting this but I want to everyone to understand that what I am about to say is a big shock. I can't even believe I am going to type this. 

I have fallen in love with a skirt...

As soon as I laid my eyes on this item of clothing I knew it has to be in my life, (the skirt in photo one).This is what shocked me, the skirt is from 'River Island'!! 

Once I picked myself up from the floor I braved my nerves and looked at some other items that apperared on my screen from the 'River Island S/S 11' collection and I have to admit I do like some of it. The other photos are a few from the collection and I don't know what the quality is going to be like but I can't wait for the skirt to hit the shops/online. I will be the first in line to get my mits on it and then wear it to death.

Are there any shops that you're not to keen on, but have been surprised by?



  1. I've never really liked RI either, too try hard or somethin? I don't know.

    But it is surprising sometimes alright.

    Oasis for me is quite boring, but sometimes it does shock me with something beautiful

  4. I feel the same about RI I thought maybe it was my local one. I always find the online store has amazing pieces and I go into my store to look at them and they stock totally different stock or so it seams. I am in love with that skirt I am going to their website now xoxo
