River Island lovers, unite! Its no secret just how much I love this brand, as you can see me wearing it in so many of my Lookbooks. It is young and fresh, but yet still has a touch of class to it, so whenever I am in Rosebank or Sandton I always pop into River Island to see what’s new and try on pretty things. Today sees the opening of the 7th River Island store in South Africa, and since it is so close to me, I couldn’t be more excited! River Island Eastgate is officially open, and you need to check it out!
