Giving River Island one last chance

Years ago River Island was my shop of choice, it was the only place I would spend my money and my whole wardrobe was full of it. Then I got introduced to ASOS and then Topshop and then Zara and slowly all my clothes that I had from River Island migrated out of my wardrobe.

However I found myself the other day looking on River Island website, and I am not gonna lie, I struggled to find anything, I come across a RI Monogramed belted puffer jacket and that reminded exactly why I stopped shopping in River Island (Sorry RI)!

But I am ready for a challenge and when I had a really good look I did come across a few pieces that I would not mind adding to my Autumn Winter Wardrobe.

Cream Ribbed Roll Neck Jumper - £25.00

I love a roll neck jumper in the Autumn and Winter, it can be paired with jeans, trousers, skirts and layered up with jackets and t-shirts, I like this one as the neck is not too bulky, as that always makes me face look massive. You can get this one in 3 other colours.

Beige cable knit Hooded Cardigan - £45.00

This is bang on my style, casual and cosy and what more could you want in the Winter, the colour is versatile so you can just throw it over anything and it will go and it looks so comfy and just perfect for them chilly days in the house.

Brown Split front flared trousers - £28.00

I love Flares, I am so glad that these have made a massive comeback, Brown is my colour of choice now, I would wear these with some boots, but more likely a pair of trainers and a baggy tee.

Pink Tie dye Ruched Top - £24.00

This is not normally somethings that I would go for, but I just found myself having a closer look at this and I think its really pretty and just a nice top to pair with some jeans, I would pair with some Mom jeans and trainers.

First of all I would like to say to anyone that still shops in River Island, I apologise for what I am about to say, it is just my opinion and each to their own!

I need to give River Island the benefit of the doubt as it is only August and they may not have all the AW21 items online, but I thought I would find more than 4 things to add to my imaginary basket! Will I buy these items when I can fit into them, yeah properly, will I make River Island one of my go to shops again, maybe if they dropped putting RI on everything and I was looking for something that I would have bought 10 years ago!!

Sorry, not Sorry!
