holiday party dresses !!

HAPPY MONDAY!!! hope everyone had a lovely thanksgivng and weekend! i had to work on thanksgiving and over the weekend, but i was able to get some black friday shopping done, both online and in-stores! i didn't think i was going to acually make it to the mall -- its just so crazy! but my hubby dropped me off for a couple hours and it wasn't too bad!! i was also able to get some christmas decorating done around the house -- so exciting and fun! i absolutely LOOOOOOVE christmas time!! the family time, the decorations, the music -- i love it all!!

what i'm wearing

velvet dress :: forever 21 || faux fur scarf :: forever 21 || tassel earrings :: bauble bar || crystal bangle :: j.crew || ring :: bauble bar || lip gloss (vamp by anastasia of BH) :: sephora

anyway, since the holiday season is totally in full swing..i mean as if it weren't already a month ago..but now that thanksgiving is over and december is around the corner, its crunch time! between all the holiday dinners and parties, decorating, and gift shopping there is just so much to do! One of my faves to do during the holidays is finding the perfect dresses for holiday dinners and parties! i get so excited about the sparkles, sequins and metallic --- and this year i'm loving all the velvet for holiday season!



i love a great velvet dress -- and this black maxi velvet dress is perfect for any holiday party! i love the low back and the shape is kind of like a mermaid-type, so its fitted through the body but opens up at the bottom! it has spandex, duh, so its comfortable. i love that the dress is black because it makes the dress a little more formal if you're going to a formal holiday party, but can be dressed any way you want! its perfect because you can add different kinds of accessories, fun shoes, a nice clutch and totally change the look! i think fur is super luxurious and goes perfectly with the velvet, so i thought this beautiful wine/plum-colored (depending on where the light hits you it can either look bordeaux or plum) faux fur scarf would be perfect addition for color and statement piece, plus it will keep my shoulders warm! i feel very elegant and regal in this holiday look -- it is definitely one of my absolute fave holiday party looks! its always so fun to get all dolled up for a party! so i will be sharing more holiday party looks in the coming weeks, but today i'm linking all my favorite holiday party dresses. i broke it down for you in case you are looking for a specific style -- sequins, lace, velvet and glitter/metallic ANNNND all under $100 !! woohoo!! time to shop for your perferct holiday party dress! also if you need ideas on how to complete your holiday look with the perfect accessories, check out my post on my TOP HOLIDAY PARTY ACCESSORIES  -- from eye-catching jewelry, beautiful shoes and the perfect bag, i've got you covered on all your holiday party outfit needs !!!
