Shopbop Party Girls: Amanda & Anna

Let’s start by stating the obvious: it’s party season. Weeks of fêtes both casual and fancy, culminating in the party of the year on New Year’s Eve. Our staff, naturally, is not immune to the influx of invites that define December, so we asked them to share their party looks, and while we had their attention, we posed a few holiday-themed questions. Tune in all week as they share their holiday style, wish lists, and traditions.

Amanda is wearing a Josh Goot dress with B Brian Atwood sandals, and Anna is wearing a Sonia Rykiel dress.


What are your plans for the holidays?
Headed to my parents for hibernation, hiking, friends, family, and, hopefully, snow!

Favorite holiday tradition?
I love Christmas Eve. My family and I prepare a huge feast, exchange gifts, and head to midnight mass. It feels magical.

Favorite holiday treat?
Hands down, my mom’s homemade fruit cake. Followed only by those treats that look like bacon and eggs: two pretzel sticks topped with melted white chocolate.

The best present you received as an adult was...
Last year I received the most heartfelt, handmade gift—a knitted infinity scarf—from my dear friend and fellow Shopbopper, Rachel.

Item topping your wish list?
I’m in search for a new pair of slouchy, black leather boots, and I’m seriously craving some Rochas.

Go-to brand for dressing up?
Josh Goot styled with a hot pair of Aquazzuras.



What are your plans for the holidays?
Going home to Memphis, Tennessee, to spend time with my friends and family.

Favorite holiday treat?
Coming from a southern family, there is no way I can pick just one! But topping the list is my grandmother's Christmas tree butter cookies and my mom's chicken pot pie.

Favorite holiday movie?
The Muppet Christmas Carol. Favorite movie, period.

The best present you received as a child was…
A reindeer! (Well, a stuffed animal along with a letter from Santa explaining why I couldn’t have a real reindeer.)

Item topping your wish list?
Maison Martin Margiela glitter oxfords.

Go-to brand for dressing up?
Sass and Bide or Opening Ceremony.

What is your post-holiday relaxation routine?
Vegging out with my sister watching horrible chick flicks and eating leftovers.
