I don't think I've ever seen a high street transformation quite as impressive as River Island's. They've always had a good shoe selection, but their clothes? Pretty trashy sometimes. And their bags? I think they're the only shop I don't own a bag from. But now? Something happened to River Island and not only are their clothes wonderful flirty and covetable, but their bags are pretty damn lovely too. I find myself in a shop I've never really liked before.
This brown bag is cute. There are a couple of little satchels that still have the River Island touch (check out the lining), but this one has a navy lining. Perfect school style. It's £24.99.
Love the briefcase feel to this bag, but I really like the cross body strap too. It's £32.99.
Really like the art deco style embellishments on this patent navy bag. It's £39.99.
I also really like this one, this one, this one and this one. Impressive turnaround, River Island.
