Please excuse my cold-breeze-just-hit-my-face expression! This is what I wore to work this morning:
And the title of my post came from the lovely lovely tights I finally got from River Island! I saw them a couple of weeks back and loved them (urm...leopard print AND floral! HELLO!) but could not justify paying £8 for a teeny bit of nylon which will rip/ladder on the 1st day of wear, which proved right, as it did. Blood annoying I tell you. I couldn't stop thinking about them and thought, "what the heck, I'm not going to see these everyday!" so I went all the way back to get them, 2 stores actually because my local didn't stock them. I have to say I am starting to really like the stuff in River Island, but only in the last few months, and I've seen the new season stuff and quite excited by it all. They have improved their style and concept drastically (as well as toning down their embellishments on clothes/accessories), before it was generally associated (by me anyway) with chavs and Essex type girls, not that there is anything wrong with that, it is just not me! A few other blogs have spoken about the change as well, such as Susie Bubble, Catwalk Queen and Kingdom of style. Who would have thought River Island would come out with some of the best patterned tights on the market??! River Island, I salute you (as long as you forever phase out the embellishments and tackiness on the pretty bags...)!
Oooohh and I am really excited for the Miss Selfridge new range too, a shop which I used to avoid as well ^_^...
Oh and I jumped on the bandwagon and joined Chictopia....JOIN ALL!
