Whistles - 25% Off With Grazia

At last it's here! I've been waiting for the latest edition of Grazia so that I can use the 25% discount code for one of my favourite brands - Whistles! I say favourite - it was my No. 1 shopping destination back in the day when I lived and worked in London and had lots of reasons to get dressed up. Nowadays, I still love it just as much, but find it harder to justify the prices and a lot of the things I like don't really fit into my lifestyle anymore (sob!). So, I have taken to waiting for the twice yearly Grazia discount and treating myself to one thing from the collection - which seems to be satisfying my Whistles craving! I am also trying to use it sensibly to buy something classic that will last - in the spring/summer I bought a grey logo sweatshirt which has been a great addition to my wardrobe, and this autumn I am in need of a black jersey blazer (I have been looking for a while) and have my eye on this one: (All prices featured are pre discount and the 25% off code is WH25AW14, available until  October 6th).

Ella Ponte Jersey Jacket £95


I tried it on a few weeks ago and have been waiting for the discount ever since - jersey blazers work for me as they can look smart if you need them too, worn with skinny jeans and heels, but can also be dressed down with boyfriend jeans and sneakers. That's me done then!

So, what else could I have used the discount code for? So, so many lovely things. Another sensible purchase with the discount would be these classic Chelsea boots:

Bryton Flat Chelsea Boot £165


I especially love Whistles knitwear and this was on my wish list for autumn/winter as I adore the colour:

Textured Marl Boxy £95


And even though I have my logo sweatshirt from the summer, I would love this one in black for the winter:

C'est Chic Sweatshirt £75


I would also recommend their sculptured crepe tops as I have a couple from last year and they are such a smart basic to wear under a little jacket or to show off a statement necklace. They are a slightly different style this autumn, but the same fantastic quality:

Ali Detail Back Crepe Top £85


But it would be boring to only feature the sensible purchases, so I will move on to the one off
statement pieces! Number one on my lust list would be this amazing lilac fur coat (and it makes sense to go for a more expensive item when there's 25% off, yes?)

Kumiko Faux Fur Coat £275


My favourite jacket is my leather biker from Whistles that I bought in the sale after Christmas and although they are a huge investment, they are a great item to buy with the discount code as they will last for years and years to come:

Jett Leather Jacket £325


I'm a huge fan of jumper dresses in the winter and don't need any this year, but I love the look of this luxurious cashmere version in dark grey and it's a good length as well:

Popperback Cashmere Dress £175


I also love all their sparkly knitted jumpers and dresses, but my favourite this year is the foil print sweatshirt:

Foil Print Sweatshirt £95



Also if you are looking for a dress, then this is the time to buy one! I don't need any dressy dresses, but I do love the print of this one, and it could easily be dressed down under a leather jacket:

Lucie Olivia Rock Tunic Dress £195


I will report back on the jersey blazer when it arrives! Have you been tempted to use the discount to buy anything?

This was what I wore yesterday to go on a course:


Stripe Jersey Blazer - Boden SS11
Grey Tee - Whistles - SS11
Skinny Jeans - Zara AW13
Yellow Scarf - Zara SS14
Yellow Ballet Pumps - Topshop SS14
Yellow Bag - Boden Sale SS14

  1. I used to buy a lot from Whistles but it has got so expensive now and plus with the weight gain I can't always fit into a lot of it unless it's a loose style but I still adore what they do. Loving the pops of yellow with your outfit and I am sure you will get masses of mileage out of your new jersey jacket x

    1. I know, the prices are crazy now, so had to introduce my rule of only one thing each season with the discount - oh and trying to get things in the sale of course! Still love it all though!
