£25 Voucher For River Island... Goodbye Bank Balance

Recently it was my birthday so like any other girl, I got a lot of jewellery and money, though the one thing I my family rarely buy me are clothes. They find it hard to keep up with the trends that are going on and understanding why items they wore back in their hay day is now back in fashion, so instead they give me clothes vouchers so I can decide on what I like. Which is a bonus as knowing my mother she would probably still fit me into floral dresses and cute tops I wore as a child so she could have her little girl back again.

So today I decided to have a gander online at River Island to see what items are screaming at me to spend my voucher, and these are the items I have found so far. I intended on finding just six items, but the further I looked on the site the more and more I started to realise my bank balance was going to take a hammering.

 Light Brown Lace Up High Tops £30

Ive wanted a pair of high tops for ages now, not only are they comfortable to wear but it can help dress down an outfit or add that skater edge. At thirty pounds these are a bargain!

Cream Embellished Fringe Cover Up £35

This is absolutely gorgeous! A must have in your wardrobe is a cover up to help add detailing to a plain outfit and give your outfit that day to night look instantly! With the key trend of fringe detailing to add a sense of movement to the outfit.

Black Marcrame Tassle Waistcoat £40

Again like the previous item this is also a cover up, but it's in more of a waistcoat style. This is a must have for festival goers and would help bring a plain dress to life.

 White Print Chelsea Girl High Collar Playsuit £25

With the key trend of the moment patterns this playsuit will get you straight into the trend. With a simple but not overpowering pattern. Can be worn in the day with a pair of high tops or pumps, or even at night with a pair of heels, two looks for the price of one!

 Cream Trible Printed Feather Earrings £5

I've been looking for a pair of feather earrings for ages now! And finally came across this gorgeous pair, not as plain as the others I've seen these have a simple bit of pattern to add a small touch of detail.

Light Denim Olive Super Skinny Jeans £40

Light denim is in this season amongst the bright denims too. So this simple pair of skinny jeans can be worn with a simple t-shirt or a printed/embellished top (or fringe top below).
 Burgundy Elephant Print Maxi Skirt £25

I'm very surprised I like this skirt, I never normally like quite dark prints as it looks a bit mumsy in my opinion, but I totally love this skirt! With its dip hem its perfect for a chilled out shopping trip or dressed up for a night out on the tiles!
 Black Print Fringe Top £40

I adore this top, a beautiful print with a simple fringe detailing to it to add a bit more glamour to the top. Can be worn simply with leggings or a pair of jeans.
 Light Pink Crochet Waistcoat £30

Yes I know what your thinking another waistcoat, but a more layered up design and also it's a dusty pink colour so it can help bring some colour to a simple outfit.

It's safe to say my bank card will have to be taken off me by the time I'm finished buying all these items among the other items that are on the website. Now all I need to do is find where I planted that money tree of mine.....
