Whistles opens in Bristol!!



Park Street is home to Whistles’ first standalone store in Bristol. In a double fronted listed building, featuring the original exposed brickwork, seating area with vintage 60’s Danish furniture and suspended lighting - the new store is just fabulous! I asked Whistles what it was about Bristol that attracted them and Ellie Wilson simply said “we thought it was high time we opened a standalone store in such a vibrant and diverse city like Bristol”.
I’ve always had a soft spot for Whistles; I love their quirky, feminine style and attention to detail.
I spend every day persuading my clients to step outside their comfort zone, so I thought it was about time that I did the same to myself. If any brand can pursued me to do this, Whistles can.
Those of you who know me will probably say that I have an unhealthy love of anything black or leopard print. I wear other colours (sometimes) and love playing around with accessories, but black is predominantly the base of every outfit. Whistles’ edgy take on fashion suits my own style, so with a little persuasion I convinced myself to try something a bit different.... a denim dress and cute t-shirt with girly print. Both of which I ended up purchasing!
It won’t be long before I’m in the fab new playing around some more with my style.
