Dear Internets,


If you’ve been to the UK or online, you’ve probably heard of River Island. but for all of you Australian Island bound, it’s been an ASOS.com restricted wardrobe dream. THE DARK DAYS ARE OVER. As of a week ago, River Island will ship direct to you! Sauntering into my dream walk in wardrobe set up last week, I was floored by the vast collection. Racks upon racks of clothes separated by style and colour and my gawd the shoes and handbags!


Apart from the monochrome, lace and Gatsby inspired pieces, the extension to our shores fortuitously coincides with their Rihanna collaboration, so there’s one we won’t have to shop on ebay at hyper artificially inflated prices. Speaking of prices, for those of you who have never shopped River Island before, you can tell from these images that you’ll get a good product but for a reasonable price too which is probably the other limiting factor for many of you.

Men, don’t worry, this is one time we have you covered. I was so impressed by the vast men’s line which varied from suits and smart attire to crazy urban and edgy cool. I could just curl up in one of the jumpers and loafers and hybernate this winter…After I’d stolen it from the man’s wardrobe that is.mensriverpink


Thanks to River Island and The Arc Factory for the great preview and hopefully a sneak peek into my future perfectly curated wardrobe. Lastly, thanks to la petite mademoiselle for taking my outfit shots on the night. I’m pictured below wearing a Japan H&M jacket ,hat & necklace, Tokito dress (similar here), Shubar boots, Sportsgirl belt & Coach patent leather handbag from Reebonz.

  1. I think we Brits often forget to appreciate just how good our Highstreet is & how spoiled we are with good, affordable clothes. I would be lost without the likes of River Island! I love the velvet jacket you’re wearing here too, beautiful!

  2. ha, bit gutted to have missed this previw but for some odd reason i’ve always been under the impression that River Island ships to australia! I must have been wrong. love your outfit, so cute and that velvet jacket!

    took my last blog photos at TAFE campus in Ultimo, spotted that long walkway at the end of Jones St, was empty on a sunday afternoon 🙂
