Get Festive Season Ready With River Island

The festive season is well and truly upon us. I like my sequins and glitter all year round, but this time of year is when most people like a bit of sparkle in their outfits. The very kind people at River Island recently offered me the opportunity to choose some dresses and accessories to feature in a blog post. I have put together two wonderful outfits ready for the party season, including a lovely bag which is the perfect accessory for both dresses. I’ve always loved River Island as a fashion brand, so I was extremely excited to be reviewing some party dresses!


Gold metallic sequin embellished dress

This gold sequin dress is currently only available in stores and at the time of writing this blog post, the dress currently costs £45. It’s such a beautiful dress with incredible gold sequins forming a pattern across it. Perfect for any New Years party, you can wow your friends and/or family as this dress shines and reflects in the lights. As this dress is currently only available in stores, the link no longer works for it on the River Island website.



Silver Diamante Chain Mini Cross Body Bag

As soon as I saw this mini cross body bag on the website in silver, I knew it would go perfectly with the dresses I had chosen. At £22, the silver diamante chain mini cross body bag is the perfect addition to any party/festive outfit. It also comes in a rose gold colour which I imagine would also be perfect to pair with some party dresses.



Black Velvet Bow Bodycon Dress

For £36, this figure hugging dress is perfect for any parties you may attend over the festive season. With stunning detail on the bow, you can be party ready in this black velvet bow bodycon dress. Show off your killer curves in this velvet dress, paired with the silver diamante bag and a pair of sparkly flats or heels. As you can see below, I paired my outfit with my glitter vans for comfort.




Get yourself ready for Christmas, New Years and all of the other festivities by heading over to the dresses section of the River Island website. Thank you so much to River Island for giving me this brilliant opportunity, I absolutely love both my dresses and I will be wearing them throughout the party season into the New Year!
