This post is dedicated to Jemma Ruby who asked me to visit White House Black Market. But before I get into what I tried on…I want to get point out that Patina has a post here showcasing a WHBM outfit. She also wrote about WHBM in this post. In the comments, Bianca points out…
“I need to start checking out BHBM. You have the cutest stuff from there. I am never attracted to go in because there is nothing bright to lead me in (like moth to flame – bright colors bring me in) – but I am gonna have to check them out online.”
ITA! So here we go…
1) Chiffon sweater blouse (300113559) – $88, XXS – XL
2) Dot print cardigan (300113999) – $88 – XS – XL
6) Ruffle trim jacket (300113497) – $98 – Don’t see this one on the website. –> UPDATE 10/6/09: This is the WHBM Contrast Trim Sweater Jacket (300113497) and it’s sold out online. Thanks, Chloe 🙂 The jacket was featured in Lucky Magazine.
Be sure to check it out on on Chloe.
Jemma — I went for items that caught my eye. I didn’t visit the website before visiting the store. I know you are interested in items you’re seeing online so I’ll try to remember that next time. I will (try to remember to) give WHBM a shot every now and then for the blog from time to time in general. I will admit that you all may have to remind me. They are easily within my usual route, but I just don’t think about the store. Probably due to the lack of color. I know that sounds silly. I get the concept of the store. I just try to stay away from a lot of black. The salespeople are always really nice & tend to do a great job w/greeting – at least the couple of times I’ve been in. I really enjoyed looking at the shoes — very promising! And here are a couple of items I recently scored from eBay a couple weeks ago. They are both by WHBM.
Lace skirt – size 4 – It’s a bit big, but I don’t care. They did this lace really well & I love it. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. It may be from last year. There wasn’t a ticket.
About the WHBM Black Book – In this post Patina says…
“One consistent perk from WHBM is the reward their black book customers receive: Once you sign up to receive their emails, you get a one time promo for 5% off your order. Now, for a limited time, they are offering 10% for new customers. Once you spend 300 dollars (at once or over time), you’re eligible to receive 5% off and free shipping, FOREVER.This offer can be combined with any other promos they are offering. Not to mention, when you shop in the store, any promotion you are eligible for is in their computer and is applied at the time of checkout. “
Do you shop at WHBM? What do you think about the clothing? Please share any shopping tips.
p.s. I have a WHBM tier lace tank for sale that I purchased from eBay. It’s made very well, but wasn’t exactly what I was looking for.
p.p.s. ABC blogged about WHBM today, too.
