Email: First Dibs: November shimmer & shine plus some extra holiday party picks

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Yesterday I noticed Anthropologie's Chelsea Market store making room for holiday accents and party wear. I was immediately excited -- I love this time of year so much! Anthropologie also sent out an email to anthro members inviting us to take an early look at some of their festive November new releases. Let's examine them together, shall we? Also inside, some of my holiday party picks from Anthro's extensive array of options.

First, below is the first dibs collection in its entirety. You can also shop the page here.

Sequin Tee ($148)

Guimauve Top ($128)

Glycon Heels ($148)

I love all things sequined and sparkly so this collection practically has me drooling. Strangely the item I'm most excited about -- the Vedette Cardigan ($148) -- has neither. And kudos to Anthropologie's styling team in that case because now the Elysian Lace Top ($88) shown beneath, so uninteresting to me two days ago, suddenly becomes a want and possibly a neeeeeeddddd.

I've tried on a couple of the items here already, like the Starlit Stripes Dress ($248, review upcoming). Have you seen any of these items in your local Anthropologie? In addition to the items shown here their website is chock full of holiday party and just general holiday season goodies. Below are a few of my faves, what are you looking at?

Amalie Dress ($248)

Eclat Blouse ($118)

Prata Skirt ($138)

And that's by no means an exhaustive list. But man, I'm exhausted just looking at all the goodies! How does one ever choose? The makings of several killer holiday outfits are in here.
