As the holidays rapidly approach, I find myself drawn towards tons of party dresses. I could always wear shorts or trousers to holiday parties, but there's nothing more classic than a dress for these events. These are a few of the dresses I'd be more than happy to wear to any upcoming holiday party. What will you be wearing to your festive parties?

such a good post! they are all SO cute, yet I of course love the most expensive ones :l

Katie said...

Gorgeous picks! I'm loving that last one!

Krystal said...

I want to wear #4 :)

I love the Ella Moss one! :)

annelise said...

It's hard to go past sparkly things, so I'd choose the first one as well. I really need to start looking for some dresses, my wardrobe is shamefully bare of them.

Gabriel said...

PAARRTAAY!! You'd look great in any of these dresses!

Anna Jane said...

that milly dress is holiday perfection! i love it and probably won't be able to stop thinking about it for awhile.

Great choices Valerie! I love the ones with the lacey detail. I just got a black lacey dress that I'll either wear for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Either way, I'm excited!
Have a wonderful day!

I love that second one, Val! I love dresses too, and this year I am going with tights and booties :). I also love skinny black pants with a shiny top. For NYE, I am at a friend's cabin, so I will probably be in sweatpants. ;)

I hope you had a great weekend!

Woop Woop Parteee-time (is it wednesday yet?)

Val!! How about #1? SEQUINS...thanks Ella Moss, and the lace #5 from Modcloth is super cute too. I do love a good dress up or 10 around the holidays. Bring it on!! Might need to turn the heat up on blast though...it is super cold!

Happy Monday!

I love holiday dresses! YAY! I'm in love with #2 and #3 looks so chic to me. Probably would make my hips look even bigger, though. whoops!

Don't you just love getting all dressed up for holiday parties? People are friendlier during the holidays and everything is just F-U-N!

Valerie-

This reminds me that I have a dress question for you!! I saw your message on Twitter, but have been totally behind this morning (post took me longer than I would've liked!), but I'll send you a message a little later... when I get caught up:).

Love wearing dresses during the holidays (and happy that we're in CA, with warm weather to do so, and not freeze at the same time!):).

Anna Walker said...

I like #5! It super amazing! :)
I have a LBD that I will be wearing, but I am hoping to buy some gilttery heels to go with them!

I LOVE wearing dresses -- especially sparkly ones -- to holiday parties. So festive and fun. I adore the Milly frock, of course... Such a perfect lace dress. And the shape of number 6 is fantastic! You have the best taste, honestly.

I love that dress from modcloth. I will most definitely be rocking a dress for the holiday parties coming up. I tend to be more just up than most folks at the party but who cares right

Annie said...

Valerie, these are such fun options! My fav is #2. Hope you had a great weekend!! It's almost Thanksgiving.. :) xo

A La Mode et Plus! said...

I would be very happy to wear 2 or 3 :) I actually did a similar post a few weeks ago about what to wear to various parties (inlcuding my NYE dress!) that you will have to check out!

Diana Mieczan said...

These dresses are beautiful! I think I like the first two best. Perfect for the holiday season!
I'm sure you are looking forward to spending more time with your niece!

I definitely prefer dresses to trousers and blouses for a Christmas party; they're so much more fun! I love #2.

Anna Liesemeyer said...

ohhh these are divine. Would love a few to add to the wardrobe:)

I love your holiday dress choices! My favorite would have to be 4 or 6, but I love them all. :)
