Urban Outfitters Party Pieces
The holidays are here, dear readers, and with them come bustling shopping malls, complimentary gift wrapping, twinkling lights in the trees, and somewhere the sound of Mariah belting the resounding ┬"All I Want for Christmas is You┬" (which then endlessly plays on a loop in our heads). Our favorite part of all the fa-la-la-la-la festivities? The fact that the season ushers in back-to-back parties, of course!
In light of the impending rush of holiday office bashes and New Year┬'s Eve fetes, we┬'ve gathered a sampling of stellar accessories from Urban Outfitters┬' Holiday ┬'08 collection. Read on for all the festive offerings, including shiny metallic pumps, beaded statement jewelry, and glitzy purses that will surely make your hearts go pa-rum-pa-pum-pum.
Dolce Vita Birdcage Heel ($148)
Step out in one of the season┬'s best footwear trends┬--cutout pumps! Dolce Vita┬'s suede version of this key style comes in teal and raspberry shades (cousin colors to the expected red and green), which are a fun alternative to basic black!
Dolce Vita Olivia Platform ($168)
As evidenced by tinsel-dripping trees, metallics are always beloved during the holidays. You┬'ll look party-ready just by sliding into these pewter-colored, hidden platform pumps by Dolce Vita. We┬'d pair them with a sleek leather skirt and chiffon top.
Urban Outfitters Fringe Clutch ($38)
This petite, framed clutch is adorned with slinky waterfall fringe and gold hardware┬--we┬'d say it┬'s the perfect dressy companion for your seasonal social events. And if black┬'s too basic, try it in flapper-friendly red!
Urban Outfitters Starburst Slingback ($58)
When donning a timeless little black dress, you need to add a bit of panache to keep your outfit celebratory. Try these glam starburst slingback pumps┬--the gold lining and star-shaped emblem will light up your look instantaneously.
LD Tuttle Colonial Madness Bag ($225)
The delicate, gold, multi-chain handle and metallic leather patched pouch of this LD Tuttle tote team up to make the ideal holiday accessory┬--and it┬'s exclusively sold at Urban Outfitters. The champagne, silver, and gold colors are neutral enough for both party outfits and your every day ensembles.
LD Tuttle Colonial Madness Cutout Heel ($148)
These strappy sandals will glisten across many different occasions (and seasons). Wear them with opaque tights while decking the halls this winter, but keep them around for spring, when you can shed your hosiery and show them off with a bright-pink pedicure.
Urban Outfitters Rondelle Jewel Purse ($38)
Between its interesting circular shape and jewel-encrusted finish, this purse looks like an ornament itself! Embellished accessories are the perfect way to add sparkle to your cocktail attire, and this one comes at a price that will make you shine on the inside as well.
Urban Outfitters Marquee Beaded Purse ($58)
Small beaded bags have the ability to transition a crisp white shirt and black skirt from nine-to-five to party-like-it┬'s-1999. If you┬'ve got a post-work soiree, just pull this diminutive purse out of your large day bag, let down your hair, and you┬'ll look dance-floor ready. It comes with a strap so it can be worn on your shoulder, or tuck it in and carry it as a clutch.
Urban Outfitters Chevron Beaded Necklace ($34)
Sometimes a plain dress or unadorned shirt-and-skirt combo needs a quirky addition to really spruce things up. This black-and-white beaded necklace will do the trick! Think of it as the jewelry version of garland on the mantle or popcorn strands on the tree┬--in other words, a little something extra for the holidays!
