holiday dresses
It’s party season, wahoo!  Aren’t you so excited?  For all the party-town, fancy-dancy parties of the season?  I’m not much of a cocktail party goer, but I love the idea of dressing other people for the holidays.  I’m more of a sweats + heating blanket + Benedict Cumberbatch (movies) on the couch kind of girl.  With some hot chai tea in hand, of course.

 

But YOU, you are a fancy party-goer!  And I have 5 short party dresses for the holidays just for you; because I love you.  I want you to be the best dressed girl at the big bash (whatever that might be) between now and January whatever.

 

LOOK #1

The hemline of this party dress is short and the feel is vintage, but the accessories are totally modern.  Ready for a mature lady and her trademark legs.

LOOK #2

Ice Queen, in silver and black with perfect winter accessories including a crown (!) statement ring.  This queen is ready to party.

LOOK #3

A twenty-something city girl with a tutu hemline and chic accessories from the golden chandelier earrings and black + gold statement ring all the way down to the black bootie heels.  The faux fur vest / gilet / is the cherry on the proverbial cake.

LOOK #4

 

A lacy blue belted dress is innocent enough but the (optional) pink blazer adds a pop of sass.  The spike earrings and geometric cuff bracelet cut the sweet in half, and the Valentino vintage-style pumps take the whole thing from ho-hum to ho-ho-ho, jingle all the way!
