Whistles treasure-hunt prize

Dearest Whistles,

Thank you so much for my free dress. I love it. A lot.

I think Sabina and I will have a great time together. She looks like she'll love dancing. I think she's very much a party girl, so I'll do my best to ensure she has the life that she's been designed for. Trust me, she's in the right wardrobe.

Dearest reader,

Don't know what I'm talking about? See last month's blog post about the amazing Whistles treasure hunt. And sign up for its newsletter and follow me on Twitter so you don't miss out next time.

Sabina is this beautiful pleated ivory dress with beaded embellishment. An investment buy at £295, but she's worth it.

Sophisticated, sexy, showy yet classic, she's almost bridal in her elegance. In fact, I'd recommend her for the bride that wants something she can wear again, or as a dress to change into for the evening do.

For the non-brides among us, this is an occasion dress – from drinks to dinner to christenings to parties. Though I'd probably steer away from the wedding-guest outfit; wearing white or cream may look like you're trying to steal the bride's thunder.

If you want to move away from the pureness of the colour, swap the bow belt for something more colourful – or black for a cool monochrome look. Heels and handbags, meanwhile, come into their own with this dress as it's such a blank canvas. Just make sure they complement rather than compete with the pleating and beading. Now give me a twirl...


  1. Awwww that dress really suits you :) I am lusting over their new pink chain dress...augh, its everything I want in life...


  2. Love the dress.I have bought some great pieces in the Whistles sale (including the lovely Tessa dress you bloged about). Looking forward to seeing their new collection.

  3. Amazing dress! It looks great on you. Whistles get their dresses SO right.
