It's that time of year again when we all need a pretty dress to wear to a Christmas party or two or three. Personally, I don't like spending a lot on special occasion dresses because once the occasion is over, the dress will hang in my closet for a long time, if not forever, or at least until I donate it to a charitable organization. It took me a while, but I finally figured out that the smartest thing I could do when looking for a Christmas party dress was to spend a very modest amount of money and also to buy something that I might actually wear to
They can be worn more than once even when you are with the same group of people. You can just jazz the dress up with new jewelry, a belt or a scarf.
I like shopping on line and in stores. There is definitely more to choose from on line but there is still something to be said for going into a store, trying on a few dresses and looking in the mirror to see if you like the way you look in them. The following are a few of my favorite dresses that I've seen this season. They are all reasonably priced and very stylish.
The first dress is from Newport-News.com. I found the dress on their website. You can also get their catalog delivered to you in the mail. The dress is a "One Shoulder Shirred Dress". The dress is off the shoulder on one side and is black. It is form fitting and really accentuates your curves. The fabric is a Rayon/spandex jersey knit so it is soft and comfortable. The dress is machine washable which is definitely a plus. The price of this dress on line is $39.00.
Another great looking dress is one that I found on line at JCPenny.com website. You can find JC Penny's merchandise in their stores as well. This dress is called "Bisou, Bisou". It is an off the shoulder dress on one side and has a sleeve on the other side. The color of the dress is black and the fabric is polyester/spandex. This dress is machine washable and is priced at $49.00.
Another dress that I love on the NewportNews.com website is an "Embellished Jersey Knit dress. This dress has an off the shoulder collar with a scoop neckline and has a dazzling gemstone on the front center part of the collar. The dress accentuates your feminine shape and falls at or a little above the knee depending on how tall you are. The fabric is rayon/spandex. You can get the dress in black or scarlet. The price of this dress is $49.
I found a really great dress on the Victoria'sSecret.com website. It is a "cotton ribbed sleeveless turtleneck sweater dress". This dress if form fitting and very flattering. You could definitely wear this at an afternoon Christmas party or an evening cocktail party. The fabric is imported cotton and nylon. It comes in four colors, heather gray, sangria red, winter white and black. It looks fabulous with a pair of strappy heals. The sale price of this dress is $35.
The last dress is one that I adore. It's call the "Worthington Short Sleeve two-fer dress' and I found it on the JCPenny.com website. The dress offers the best of both worlds. The top portion of the dress looks like a white blouse with short capped sleeves and the bottom part looks like a black flared skirt. You could wear it to an afternoon holiday party at the office or just glam it up by adding a beautiful necklace and some dangle earrings. A nice pair of pumps and your set to go. The dress is all one piece and very classic looking. The sale price for this dress if $24.99, also added Cindy E. Thomas.
