First of all, I have a question for you: DO YOU WANT TO WIN A TRIP TO NEW YORK CITY, COURTESY OF WHISTLES, THAT COMES WITH A SHOPPING SPREE…AT WHISTLES?
Oh my goodness you do? Excellent. Because they’re giving that away to a lucky someone, possibly you. The winner will receive a two-night stay at the Arlo Soho Hotel on Hudson Street and $2,500 to spend at Whistles’ new Soho store at 150 Spring Street, the UK brand’s first US flagship, which just opened this month. The store will be home to the complete womenswear collection, including Limited Edition, footwear, and accessories. In addition to racks of clothes that seem to whisper the question, “What’s your fall/winter persona,” you’ll find large scale paintings designed by British multi-disciplinary artist Rosie Tonkins. (The store itself was dreamed up with a gallery feel in mind.) You’ll also find a particularly comfortable seating situation upon which to rest your laurels and try on Whistles boots.
If that’s not the best news ever then I don’t know what is. Enter to win down below, but also, I’d love if you could join me on a quick shopping journey, first. You know, in preparation…because what if you win!!!
The journey I’d like to go on takes us down a little rainbow called, “You know what I’m all about this fall?”
*Cups hands around mouth*
VERY BRIGHT COLORS!
I want a green skirt that says “HECK YES!” the moment I kick up my feet.
I want a lavender V-neck sweater (styled here on Simedar backwards) with a matching scarf that I can tie around my waist, or around my neck, or as a shawl, or as a truly beautiful cozy blanket for the airplane. (I know lavender isn’t what you think of when you think of bright, but in comparison to my navy sweater collection, this is practically LOUD, and I love it.)
I want a neon-y orange turtleneck to peek up my neck and out from things like “OH HI DIDN’T SEE YOU THERE BUT DO YOU SEE ME?”
I want big candy gem rock earrings that dangle from my lobes and cause a scene.
But let’s not get carried away, of course. I am still me, and the me I know and love still leans hard into the idea of dressing like an autumnal tree. For instance, I might pass out if I don’t find myself the owner of this tortoiseshell laptop tote.
That tiger print belt bag Simedar’s wearing? I want it.
I also love this black skirt that buttons down the front and is covered entirely in dandelions, this cashmere funnel neck sweater and, finally, these check wide-leg trousers.
Okay, so now that you know my shopping list, allow me to remind you one more time to enter to win (right down below!). All you have to do is input your email address, first name, last name, and voila! Let fate take over.
Enter to win!
