River Island’s Style Studio #StyleWithLove

River Island invited me to celebrate Valentine’s at their Oxford Street store.

Style Studio is a trendy styling space on the 1st floor of their store

Firstly, we were partnered up and set a challenge. I was with the lovely Virgit from Preppy Fashionist, who is super fun by the way and absolutely a pleasure to chat to! So, we┬áhad to answer as many questions as we could about ‘love’ related questions in order to win an outfit from River Island. Some of the questions were related to history, other’s we had to guess the films that the quotes shown were from. This was super hard and we did our best not to cheat! We didn’t win #sadtimes but we had fun along the way anyway ­čÖé

Also, I was especially surprised to find out that a River Island┬ástylist put together an outfit based on our previous fashion posts – what a super cute idea!

I assume that as I wore an aztec dress in one of my summer fashion posts, my outfit was full of frills and trendy suede materials. I then got a little embarrased using thier awesome 360 degree video recording…

With lots of games, chatting and trying on clothes I had heaps of fun! Many thanks for the invite RI.
