NEW Starbucks Cup Collection - My Favorites

Ever since Starbucks released their signature "red cup" ten days ago, people have had a lot to say. Taking to social media, coffee-drinkers are upset with the plain design this year, with absolutely no illustrations on the cup except their logo.

IT'S A PAPER CUP! I don't understand what all the hype is about. Now what I do understand is how cute their new cups are in their Winter Dot Collection. OMG!

Here are just my top ten favorites that I've come across in stores:

Red Lips Traveler $19.95 , Banana Traveler $19.95 , Confetti Traveler $19.95 
Rainbow Macarons Mug  $12.95 , XOXO Mug $12.95 , Leopard Print Mug $12.95 

Ferris Wheel Mug $12.95 , Golden Heart Mug $6.95 , Studded Cuff Mug $12.95

For all the people who are curious about this years red cup design, here is some good information from the company's website: 

"This year’s iconic red Starbucks cup features a two-toned ombré design, with a bright poppy color on top that shades into a darker cranberry below."
“We have anchored the design with the classic Starbucks holiday red that is bright and exciting,” said Jeffrey Fields, Starbucks vice president of Design & Content. “The ombré creates a distinctive dimension, fluidity and weightedness.”
"Since 1997 Starbucks has served its holiday beverages in a unique cup, starting with a jazz-themed design in jewel tones of deeper reds, greens and blues. Every year since, the cup has told a story of the holidays by featuring symbols of the season from vintage ornaments and hand-drawn reindeer to modern vector-illustrated characters." 
"Taking a cue from customers who have been doodling designs on cups for years, this year’s design is another way Starbucks is inviting customers to create their own stories with a red cup that mimics a blank canvas."
