Off the Rack: H&M Holiday 2011 Collection

In case you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed yesterday that I stopped by the H&M showroom in NYC for the very first time to see what's new. I got to preview the Spring 2012 looks, which I will be sharing with you all shortly, but first, let's take a look at some of the highlights from the Holiday 2011 collection, ie., fashions you can shop right now! From a classic black and champagne color palette to bright gemstone hues, there was something for everyone and every occasion, whether it's a leather pencil skirt for the office holiday party or a slinky tassle-draped cocktail dress for a more formal fête. Keep reading for some of my favorite pieces that will probably make you swoon, like copper bow-embellished platform heels, a glamorous gold envelope clutch or the ombre sequin mini shown above which has New Year's Eve written all over it.

FTC Disclosure: Upon visiting the showroom, I received a VIP shopping card good for 25% off H&M purchases through June 2012. The decision to write this post and the opinions expressed within are entirely my own.

I want those black wedge booties!! They look like a cheaper alternative to the DV by Dolce Vita Paloma. Do you remember how much they were?
