Getting a pencil on..
For those of you that keep an eye on my Instagram, you will have seen that I was recently graced with an invitation for sneaking and peeking around at the River Island High Summer ’15 press event “about a week ago” (3 days ago to be precise, a lyric extract just sounded good..)
And here I am, post eye peeling, getting my pencil on. I said that. I know. 

Now, one can’t deny THE guilty pleasure. Not dubiously moving off topic either ok. Read on..
Year in and year out, those that know me will vouch that I do love me a good fringe. 70s or not, summer or snow blanket, the versatility multiplied factor that fringing gives me is not quite larger than life though it does comes close.
And clearly I’m telling you this because? Because it’s wholly apt.

Sworn not to compete between two ultra-ego situations that often (in my life) occur; between that of a feather and then that of a fringe, here I am finding out that next season will be of zero resolute talk as there’ll be no need. Fringe is everywhere and wooohaaa to that.


For their High Summer additions; River Island (#RIHighSummer15) have gone all fringe cray. That would be a backing up of the whole seventies inspired get up that will be hitting the streets over summer, yes you heard it. The authenticity of some good suede with tan like shades mixed with burnt orange and sophisticated grey palettes and sandals with straps and laces for days.

Festival lovers are in for a treat for they have a super grunge creation factor to take away from this, with RI appropriately distinguishing between their Nero Festival Black and Nero White Festival. The colour in the name suggests the obvious. The Black strikes a fancy, feminine but moody (nothing like me – ha). Texture mixture is prominent over the entire collection and fringing is like way up the edgy factor chain. And (out of breath) the layer opportunities the collection offers, OMG I die. #layeraddict. Talking of which, by far my most adored piece, the wide legged lace trousers, I would so go overboard on layering those babies, saggy old face knees and all. IMG_1113 
All in all, the suggestive eyes peeled situation was entirely warranted, along with proving that getting your fringe on addssmoke hot definition. And, you know how I love bug eye iconic Iris Apfel like glasses..? well they are about to get big, AGAIN. And lucky for you, I am telling you about it before the sun is up for longer than 307 minutes of each British day.

Go get. Or get miserable not trying.

Over and out.
