The holiday shopping parties are revving up around the city, filled with promises of merriment and good deals. And though holly is great and all, it's clear that retailers are hoping you'll deck the halls with new merch. We'll let you know about those of interest, and even if your pocketbook is not exactly overflowing, you can at least grab some spiked punch along the way.
Maria Chavez bracelet; a look from Tucker
Delicate gems and feminine printed blouses seem like a good way to start the week.

Most items will be up to 50% off, plus gratis Ketel One Martinis and wine, small bites and sweet treats, and complimentary valet. Thanks to a Racked reader for the tip!
