A Crime to Fashion

Hello Ladies,

This post is me having a little bit of a whinge.  I think that River Island has really improved over the past 2 years as a store.  I always thought it was a bit chavy and pretty poor when it came to producing fashionable clothes, however, over the last two years I’ve been really impressed as the clothes are now edgy and fashionable.  About a month ago I seen this appalling dress in store, and now its on ASOS…


All I can say is River Island WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!??  This monstrosity would set you back a tidy £70.  These pictures actually don’t do justice to how awful this dress is.  If you see it in store it’s even worse, and I’d pretty much bet on your chin hitting the floor like mine did when I seen it.

Has anyone else recently notice any crimes to fashion on the ‘Great British Highstreet’ this season?

    Ugh, I completely agree! Me and my friends saw this dress in store and couldn't believe they were stocking something that is frankly so hideous and unflattering. Luckily River Island does a good line in other clothes, so I think I can let this one pass…for now…
    It would be great if you could check out my baby blog (quite literally a newborn) and let me know what you think! wwww.belezababy.blogspot.co.uk
