River Island Christmas Sale Picks

Saturday, 21 December 2013
I am a firm believer in doing all my Christmas sale shopping online. You get the better choice and selection, and you don't have to wrestle through hoards of sweating women eager to grab that last size 6 heels you are desperate for. A few stores have already launched their sales, and I have done a post on my Motel favourites already. I noticed today that River Island have launched their sale online also, so I thought I would share my favourites with you.
You'll notice a lot of shoes - River Island is my favourite place for shoes but they are usually quite pricey so at sale time I go a bit crazy. I will probably choose a few bits from this selection I show you and eventually film a big Christmas Sale haul for you all!

Black Patent Crossover Wedges - £25 down from £65! What a bargain!! These are gorgeous. I literally cannot get enough of them. The only thing deterring me is the heel height - I really struggle with anything past 4 inches and tend to only opt for wedges even then. That said, the fact it's a platform takes some of the height away. Right on trend with the monochrome and PVC vibes, this would look awesome for a night out. Do you guys think I should get them? I could always return them…

Faux Fur Collar - £12 down from £25. Fur is big this winter, and I have been adoring it for spicing up outfits. I probably won't get this collar just because I already have a plain black one from Topshop, but I was eyeing it up in store a few weeks ago and would probably invest in it if I didn't already have a statement fur piece. I've been loving wearing my collar with coats, bomber jackets and even long sleeved teeshirts, it really gives my outfits an extra oomph.

Bright Yellow Loafers - £20 down from £40. I find RI shoes are always a really good quality and last a long time, better so than Topshop. Loafers are really great for giving an outfit a sophisticated vibe, and these in bright yellow will give a colour pop and a quirky twist to an otherwise plain outfit. I'd wear them with skinny jeans and a plain white oversize shirt tucked in.

Teen Vogue Handbook - £5 down from £10. I just think this is a nice little addition to a collection of fashion books I have, and as I graduate in a few short months (eeeeek!) and am looking for a step into a career in fashion I will probably treat myself to this and have a cheeky read over the holidays!

Flatform Loafers - £15 from £35. As mentioned above, I think these are a nice twist on a classic loafer. As also mentioned above, I can't walk very well in heels so any added height is a bonus for me. If you like these though you will have to act fast, I have just noticed they are selling out in most sizes already.

Cream Raglan Teeshirt - £10 down from £20.  I think it is a wardrobe essential for a woman to own a smart white tee. This can be worn literally anytime, for any occasion and is easy to dress up and play down. For a tenner I would definitely invest in this, and will probably pick this up for my haul.

Which is your favourite item? Should I go for the monochrome wedges?!
