Valentine's Event at River Island, Style Studio

River island bloggers event 2016
I spent last night surrounded by heart balloons and iced biscuits thanks to having been invited to River Island's Style Studio at the Marble Arch branch for their Valentine's event!  Prosecco in one hand and camera in the other, I went about admiring the collection on show; one packed with safari shades and tactile textures...

After I'd finally managed to pull my gaze away from the light fitting (all about that interior design), the bag above caught my attention and on more than one occasion.  The nude, flattering design of the bag promises it to work with most looks and a quick glance at any of the outfits at the event confirmed that.  Speaking of which, I don't think I've ever been so in love with a lace-up skirt before now!

There were some fun competitions at the event, where along with a lot of laughs, I discovered I'm terrible at Valentine-themed general knowledge.  I guess I should probably stop describing myself as a 'romantic', huh?  Anyway, the stylists at River Island's Style Studio curated personalised looks for us based on our blogs and Instagram accounts. It was hugely entertaining seeing some of the other girls try on their outfits and uh, so much so that I completely forgot to look at my own.  How?!  Oops!

Before leaving the Valentine's-themed event (and endless supply of prosecco) we were handed roses and generous goody bags packed full with River Island treats before heading outside into the cold.  So, after such a great night, the answer is an indisputable yes - I'll be your Valentine, River Island!
