So Last-Year: River Island heart print

River Island will always be the stuff of nostalgia to me. Growing up, it was one of the few high street stores that you would actually want to shop in on my actual high street and their decoupage-style carrier bags were THE bag to use carry your PE kit to school.

The same store is also a great place for bargains come the Christmas sales: there always seems to be a host of pretty dresses or skirts in there that haven't quite hit their target market but suit my taste quite perfectly (see this yuletide haul for proof).

I'm still longing after that YSL poppy print I wrote about back in December, while I spent a long time stroking the Sonia heart print blouse in the Harvey Nichols sale. Thankfully River Island have delved into their Chelsea Girl archives and produced these numbers.

It's the YSL look for a grand total of £38. Perfect for Valentines-themed dressing too, if you go for that kind of stuff (I definitely do).

I can't quite see anyone sporting them down at the Pier in Cleethorpes so hopefully that means they'll still be around - and at even more of a bargain price - when I next go up to visit my folks.
