Shopaholic-Worthy Summer Finds From Whistles

Thursday, May 28, 2015

Every time I see something from the London-based Whistles label I can’t help but think of the original Confessions of a Shopaholic book. Becky loved her Whistles. So do I.

Not familiar with Whistles? Here are the basics. This well-known contemporary label went through a bit of a reinvention in 2008, under the direction of CEO Jane Shepherdson, and is now a darling of fashion editors. Lately, the styles have been sleek, modern, and refined with many minimalist-leaning styles. US-based shoppers can find Whistles on their official site, via Bloomingdales, or on a handful of UK-based sites that ship to the US.

It’s been a while since I browsed through Whistles, so I hit up both their official site and Bloomingdales to see what’s new. I definitely found some winners. Check out my Shopaholic-worthy summer finds…

This asymmetric dress is stunning in every way. The rich poppy color is to die for. The shape is effortless, yet beautiful. I can barely stand it. Must. Have. Dress.
