WINTER WISHLIST – RIVER ISLAND

Ok so, the colour palette is no more inspiring than last time, but I like to think after not using Photoshop for several years my collage skills may be slowly improving.

I always find that River Island is one of those stores that I go into and either want to purchase the whole store, or I go in and there’s virtually nothing that I like. In the winter, their collections are usually spot on and I tend to find a billion and one things that I want, but this year doesn’t seem to be following the same trend which is a shame. I went in this afternoon and despite the pair of boots I accidentally bought in the sale, there really wasn’t anything I wanted. Their collection doesn’t seem to have really changed or improved much since summer, or maybe it’s just that my tastes have changed a LOT since then.

I did however find a few items I liked this afternoon while having a mooch on their website for the purpose of this exact post, and I have put them together for you above. I think my favourite things are the skirt, which is actually a limited edition online exclusive, and the velvet joggers. We all know I have a full on obsession with my satin ones, and velvet just sounds so warm and cosy for winter that I kinda need them in my life despite my wardrobe being completely full already. I also love the grey shoes – I will forever have space for more stacked sole shoes, and these slip on ones are actually perfect in every way.

    I'm exactly the same with River Island, I either love everything that they have or can't find anything that I like! Great picks!The Velvet Black // UK Style & Beauty Blog
