This weekend I was in London for the Fashion Chick Blogger Network Launch (more on that soon!) and I really wanted to make the most of my time in the big city, so I booked myself in at the brand spanking NEW River Island Style Studio for a wardrobe overhaul!
The Studio had literally just opened its doors the week before, AND OH MY GODDDDD!!! I actually just wanted to set up camp on their gorgeous peach sofas and live there forever. First of all, I was greeted by RI stylist Danielle, who I pretty much style stalk on instagram > Little Fash Bird and we had a little chat about the pieces that she had chosen for me...
I couldn't resist snapping some pics so that you guys can see how utterly GLAM it is. You could easily spend the whole day there, flicking through fashion books, drinking prosecco and watching people try on clothes!
I LOVE this jewellery stand! How cute is the Pineapple Bracelet?!
So, step into my dressing room... I had asked Danielle to find me some totally Blogworthy pieces that could be mixed into my current wardrobe, but give me a bit of an update for Spring / Summer. And that is absolutely what I got - think culottes, cami's, crops and prints! And the SHOES. Oooh the shoes! I have to admit, I am a bit of a Shoe Whore, and I could have easily walked out with all of the pairs that Danielle showed me.
I did worry that many shoe boxes wouldn't go down well on London transportation, so I resisted and I'll be heading online to complete my Spring Summer looks!
This gorgeous grey jacket was £80 - unfortunately I can't see it on the site to link to it. But it is really lovely - quite lightweight and perfect for Spring.
Which are your faves?? Lace up and caged shoes are going to be HUGE this Summer, so I'd definitely recommend grabbing a pair. The metallic sliders are unbelievably comfy and I know I'll be rocking these to work on sunny days.
In LOVE with Dan's sequin blazer?! It's online now. I really like how she's managed to work silver sequins into her everyday outfit and not look too OTT (told ya she's a good'un to style stalk!)
I was so impressed with the Style Studio; with only a very simple brief, Danielle really picked out pieces that suited my style. Plus, she gave me some fab tips on how to mix all the pieces together - with RI bits and things I already have.
At the moment, the Style Studios are in London and Birmingham, but you can book in online. I'd definitely recommend the hour session as this gives you plenty of time to try on and enjoy your prosecco! :-)
I can't wait to blog about the gorgeous things I picked up - watch this space for plenty of OOTD posts #ImWearingRI !!
