My Favorite Holiday Dresses

December 22, 2011

Good evening darlings! I hope you’re having a lovely week. Can you believe Christmas is only THREE days away!? One of my favorite parts about this time of year is getting dressed up for holiday parties…including Christmas AND New Year’s Eve!! With that in mind, I first wanted to share with you a few party dresses I’ve recently purchased to wear this season and also show some of my favorite holiday dresses in stores right now!

Now to show you some of my favorite dresses at many different price points. I’ve grouped them by three of my favorite looks: feminine sophistication (bows, ruffles, or lace), the classic little black dress (LBD), and fun & festive party dresses!

Feminine Sophistication:

A look I love for holiday party dresses are feminine details like lace, bows & ruffles! Wear your feminine dress with soft curls for a sophisticated and romantic look.

Little Black Dress (LBD):

When in doubt on what to wear to a holiday party, you cannot go wrong with a little black dress! The LBD is so classy, versatile and a great investment. When styling your LBD think ACCESSORIES…dress it up with bold jewelry, statement shoes or a clutch.

This is a fresh-twist on the classic LBD with the beautiful beaded neckline.

Fun & Festive:

When I think of New Year’s Eve I think of sequins & lots of sparkle! All of the following dresses would be SO much fun to wear to ring in the New Year. Just remember to let your dress steal the show & keep the rest of your accessories simple.

LOVE the deep purple shade of this sequin dress from Express.
