It’s holiday time, time for eating, time for giving and time to squeeze yourself into a holiday dress that will make your friends envious.
I just so happened to attend a very early holiday party this past weekend, knowing fully well that I had no dress in my closet that I wanted to wear. I gave myself my 50 minute lunch break to find the perfect dress. Yes that is all the time I had, my weekend was jam-packed and I had no other time to shop, I was becoming frantic. I ended up looking in a few different stores with no luck and finally I broke down and went into Forever 21. It’s not that I don’t like “Forever,” as I like to call it, but I’m always afraid that I have more of a chance of seeing someone else at the party with the same dress. I ended up getting the hi-lo lace dress that’s pictured below. It all worked out and no one at the party had my dress. Although I ditched the crappy black slip that came with the dress and opted for a shape-wear tube dress from Target, it made a huge difference. (Sorry for the quality of the pic, it was taken with my iPhone.)
The trends this season are leather and lace. I saw lots of it at the holiday party that I attended and I’ve seen both of them in all the stores. Below are some dress ideas for you this holiday season so you don’t have to freak out last-minute like I did and so you can make your friends envious… isn’t that what it’s all about? 😉
