Christmas commercials started running before Halloween, and everyone wants to get into the holiday spirit already, but I'm still actually in Thanksgiving mode. It's feeling like fall and I'm absolutely loving it, BUT like it or not... this is the time when you need to start thinking about holiday dresses.
It's like Murphy's law - when you go shopping the day before an event for a party dress, you'll have a hard time finding anything... so by being prepared, and keeping an eye out for pretty dresses when you're out and about in November means that you'll find THE perfect dress, with plenty of time to spare.
What I really want this year is sparkle. I said it last year and ended up in a black dress... this year, I'm on the hunt for glitz and glam. Here are a few that I've rounded up online...
Roberto Cavalli strapless dress, $3,975 / Party dress, $105 / Tokyo Doll baby doll dress, $24 / French Connection blue sparkly dress / Steffen Schraut evening dress / Boohoo sequin body con dress / DP Collection gold dress / Sequin one shoulder cocktail dress / Jigsaw vintage sequin dress, $520 / 2b sleeveless dress
Sparkle comes in so many different forms, I had to break these finds into a few separate categories - geometric beading, all over sequins, and Gatsby inspired sparkle.
The geometric beaded dresses were so "cool girl" - they skimmed the body with shift style silhouettes, and in my mind seem a little more transitional... even though they have head to toe sparkle, they seem like something that you could wear even in warmer months...
The all over sequin dresses are so classic for the holiday... the black or deep blue would be amazing for a corporate Christmas party, and the one shoulder and gold sequin dress would be amazing on NYE.
And perhaps my favorite... the Gatsby inspired dresses - so fun! I LOVE the beaded tassles on the short black strapless number (how fun would that be to dance in??), and the copper beading that has the look of flames is sexy and fun while still being ladylike.
What do you think?? Any favorite dresses in the bunch??
