8/15/2012 Whit and Whit 0 Comments

It's August already! That means time for more of our fashion picks for the month. Check out some of our recent purchases, most wanted items and picks for the month.

Whit W: I picked up a few nice things recently. I realized I had been carrying around the same handbag I got in the spring, so I felt it was time for a new bag. I wanted something fun so I was on the hunt for a vibrant color or detail. I went to a few usual stores to look for a good buy (like TJ Max) but didn't find what I was looking for. I stopped at Urban Outfitters and saw this super cute royal blue Deena & Ozzy Buckle Tote on sale for $39:

A few other things I picked up recently... this cute House of Harlow 1960 Gold-Plated Double Metal Sunburst Ring I got from GILT for only $30:

Also, my next vacation spot will be to Mexico at the end of this month... so I needed a new swimsuit. I checked out Macy's swimwear sale (everything 50% off) and scored this cute Hobie Sally Sells Seashells Tankini under $40. I'm also a big fan of the Jennifer Lopez Boyfriend Jeans from her Kohl's collection (they are so comfortable and go with just about everything), so I grabbed another pair in a lighter shade. See both items below:

Whit R: I feel like every time we have Whit Picks, I'm always doing too much shopping. So… that's nothing new this month. With Virginia having their tax free weekend the first weekend in Aug, I took advantage of that. Even though fall is right around the corner, I'm ignoring it! I've been looking for some cute flat sandals. I wear a womens 5-5.5 so it's usually hard to find anything under a size 6 unless I hit up the kids section.

Macy's was having a major shoe sale so I grabbed these Jessica Simpson Camille Flat Sandals for $30.

I had a very hard time deciding whether I wanted them in ivory or "luggage" (light brown). I decided to go with the ivory because I had purchased some brown fringe sandals the day before. (Seen above… which are by Minnetonka. Their sandals are usually around $60 but I got them on clearance at Marshall's for $16)

Another pair I grabbed over the tax free weekend were the Mossimo braided flats from Target.

Coral was the only color they had in a 5.5 but they do come in black, brown, and teal. They were also on clearance.

In addition to the sandals, I grabbed some tops and jeans and a dress. I'm going to Atlanta for my 26th birthday. I found this black peplum dress for $20 that could be a possible birthday dress.

The fit of the dress is great. I really like the caged back. OKAY That is all… I promise! LOL (FOR NOW)

Whit W: I'm all about open back tops right now, I love how you can add a sexy touch to a basic top with a little cut out. I spotted this Lucca Couture Open-Back Blouse on sale at Urban Outfitters for $39 and I would love to own it!

I think I could pair the snake print one with a few items I already own, like my blueberry colored jeans or even tucked in a skirt. I may have to make a trip back to Urban Outfitters soon...

Whit R: So, thanks to Whit W and my ridiculous fringe obsession… I MUST have these Colin Stuart Fringe Wedge Booties from Victoria Secret.

They have a price tag of $128… not bad. Doesn't really matter… they will be purchased! I'm getting a fringe bag for my birthday (so sad, yes, I already know about it) so these would go along with it great!
