Whit Picks: December

12/20/2012 Whit and Whit 0 Comments

It's the season of giving! We recommend if you are able to give something, whether it be your time or something of a monetary value to the less fortunate… do so! In the meantime, we are going to be a little selfish and show our December Whit Pick's, but hopefully you have been enjoying our giving back with our Holiday Giveaways! Check out what we've recently gotten and what we have our eyes on.

Whit W:

So, every year I have to buy at least one new BCBGeneration dress - I'm a huge fan and always fall in love with their designs. I have a growing collection of dresses in my closet now! This past month, I was shopping at Macy's during the Black Friday sale and spotted this Long Sleeve Surplus Dress:

The original price was $118, but I waited until the past week to get it and found it on sale for around $80. I love the purple color, plunge front and cutout in the back - hopefully I'll get a chance to wear it on vacation in Hawaii next week!

As far as other things I got, I've mostly been thinking about things to buy for others but I did find a few other things for myself. I also picked up the new Rihanna perfume, Nude:

I have her previous collection of fragrances, so I was looking forward to smelling the new one. I love this smell, definitely a favorite. It's light and sexy. You can pick it up at Macy's now.

I'm also a big fan of the BareMinerals makeup. I had been using the SPF matte foundation for around 2 years (I love how natural it looks). They recently released their BareMinerals Ready SPF 20 Foundation:

It comes in a convenient compact and is great for long-wear coverage. I've been using for a few days now and so far, I like it!

With Christmas being so close, I haven't done a lot of shopping for myself. I thought that I would go overboard for Black Friday but I behaved rather well. Over the weekend I went out of town and went to Belk. We don't have one in Richmond so it's not normally a place that I shop but I found a cute blazer which featured faux leather sleeves. Check it out:

Trust me that it's much cuter and flattering in person than it is on the model. It's on sale for $34.99 and you can get an additional 25% off. The blazer is a good option for Less when comparing to this and this blazer. I thought about pairing it with some leggings which featured some leather like panels and of course some nice platform booties. I also grabbed a cute black and gold sweatshirt to pair with my Golden Moments Jordan's for a casual style.

Whit W:

I was browsing on Pinterest and came across this Tiny Hearts Cut Out Blouse from Mickey's Girl:

I love the heart cutouts on the back, and it's currently on sale for $34.50.

Whit R:

I always choose clothes or shoes but I'm really wanting this Nikon J1 camera. It's a little pricey but I'm hoping that is my large gift that I receive for Christmas. I always had my eye on it but I was out shopping one day and this lady asked me to take a picture of her and her son with the J1 and the photo was amazing. Cross your fingers for me!

Here are some of our other picks for December.
