River Island Fever

Affordable, on-trend and with only one store in this country (that happens to be a 10-minute walk away from my place – the danger!) kind of exclusive: River Island! This British high-street brand has been featured on dogsanddresses a few times before, with the contest over at StyleLab, my reports on the Christmas collection and the Student shop-in and my entry for the River Island Style Correspondent. Here’s what’s new on the Island.

*yaay*, the River Island editors picked me as the winner of their Blogger Contest! My Trend Notes-post turned out to be exactly what they were looking for, so this month I’ll be guest blogging over at the River Island Style Insider blog. My first post will be online later this week, but you can check my introduction post here. Let me know what you think!

Wait, there’s more! Last week, on the first real spring day of the year, River Island hosted its High Summer Salon Show over at the new and improved Oona PR Headquarters. It was a cozy and intimate get-together with bloggers, high heels, blue drinks, skimpy dresses and oysters.

My runway photography skills are not fully on point yet (models have long legs, long legs move fast = hard to capture!) but I did manage to get some runway looks on camera. I’ll upload the catwalk pictures onto the dogs and dresses Facebook page and leave you with a video of the finale.

That’s not all! Of course I just had to check out the new collection in store, and I didn’t leave empty handed (oops). Amongst a few other things I picked up these leather cut-out flats. Purrrfect for spring! You’ll see each and every new addition to my closet in upcoming outfit posts.
