My Top Picks From River Island + A Couple Of Discount Codes & WIWT

Morning ladies.  Following on from the River Island style studio which I hosted last week, I know there were many of you who would have loved to have attended but were unable to due to prior commitments/distance involved.   So I thought it would be fun if today I shared with you my top picks from their AW16 collection - especially as there's currently 20% off (see here & use code STYLEAW16).

As you can see from the images above the pieces I've picked would make a great capsule wardrobe & would be perfect for mixing & matching.  In particular I am just loving the military jacket & the satin backless loafers not to mention the grey suede biker jacket.  Just click on the above images for further details.

Now I meant to take lots of photos of the event last Thursday to share with you all but can you believe it I totally forgot to take a single one!  So you'll have to take my word for it that a great night was had by all with ladies trying clothes on that they didn't think would be for them but loving them once on & in fact purchasing them too!  Which just goes to show sometimes it does us all good to step outside of our comfort zone with clothes & try something that little bit different.

So if you weren't able to make the event but would love a session with the girls at the style studio you can get in contact with them here.  They really are a lovely & friendly set of stylists who just want to help you find pieces you're going to love & who doesn't love a spot of shopping in exclusive surroundings with refreshments thrown in too?!  Plus as with the event last week their service is entirely complimentary & they're not commission based either so you just know you'll get an honest opinion.  Plus for anyone who lives near London they also have a style studio at their Oxford Street store.

Back to today & I've got a busy day in the office so I'm keeping my look nice & simple & hoping we don't have anymore heavy rainfall!

  1. Jane, I have been looking at military jackets for ages. Love this one so might have just ordered :) Also, waiting in today for a little M & S order place earlier in the week inspired by you. Trying to get a nice wardrobe together. Thank you xx

    1. Ooh hope you like it. It's a lovely fabric & jacket & will be perfect for layering up over the coming weeks.
      Hope you're pleased with your M&S order as well - they're on fire at the moment!
      Jane xx

  2. Great blog, glad all went well, would of loved to have been there. I never think of River Island, but will give it a look. x Jacqui

    1. Thanks Jacqui your good wishes were much appreciated :-)
      I think a lot of people tend to over look River Island & think it's not for them but they have some really lovely pieces that would make great wardrobe investments.
      Enjoy taking a look.
      Jane xx
