The holidays might seem far off, but before you know it you'll be unpacking the ornaments, shopping for presents and of course, trying to figure out what in the world to wear to all those cocktail parties.
With shipping delays and early Black Friday deals on the horizon, now is the time to get your look together before all the good stuff sells out. Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack are packed with festive finds galore, from velvet dresses to adorable advent calendars. Grab what you need now — it'll feel great to check things off your list.
Lucky you: Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack has a ton of certified looks for gussied-up gatherings, as well as sparkling decor to get your space in the spirit, too. Take a sneak peek below:
Candles are a surefire way to get you in the holiday spirit — and these minis are the ones you'll grab for illuminated casual dinners, holiday parties, even chilly weekend mornings. The set of four Voluspa candles, made with rich coconut wax, are hand-poured in the USA. With unique fragrance blends that include musky, ripened fig, French cade wood and goji berry, they make great stocking stuffers for candle-obsessed friends and family too.
Just think of all the compliments (and questions!) you'll get at dinner parties. A soft LED light gives this gorgeous frosted glass carafe a glow from within. It's the showpiece you'll reach for on all those special occasions, but it's also great for dressing up pizza night. Comes with two lithium batteries.
Sprinkle these 2" trees around your home to add a holiday vibe without the mess or stress. They're adorable clustered as a centerpiece, as well. Made with PVC, wood and wire, the cuties come in a set of 24 for just $12 — that's only 50 cents a pop!
Velvet, baby! With a bow at the neck, this fabulous fit-and-flare frock will make you the gift of whatever party you're attending. The halter shows off those shoulders too.
If there's ever a time for sequins, it's during the holidays. And this midi dress, covered in sparkly silver paillettes, is a knockout. It's got it all: a tie at the waist for cinching, a slit at the hem for sexiness and voluminous blouson sleeves for drama. The frock so flattering, you'll look for excuses to wear it again and again.
If you want a dress you can wear year-round to parties or on date nights, this is it. The gauzy stunner skims your body with ease, while the tiered skirt and self-tie collar lend a playful touch. Gold polka dots bring subtle shimmer.
Stretch out the season...with treats every day of December. Load this advent calendar with goodies and watch spirits soar. Made of cotton canvas, it's built to last and hangs neatly on the wall. Tiny embellished with stars lend a truly festive touch. In dark green, shown, or sand.
