Party Frockin

Friday, December 02, 2011

December is upon us and that means one thing – holiday party season. Which also means you need something festive to wear to all of these gatherings. Well, look no further. If you are in the market for a new frock, here are my favs.

When putting this post together, I really looked for dresses that could be worn to work and then after. Or vice versa – bought for a party, but still able to get more wear out of it from 9-5.

I like this first pair of green dresses from Old Navy. They are festive, fun and cost effective. Old Navy always has crazy sales – last time I went, they were basically giving things away!

This Parker dress may be a bit too sexy for work, but if you have a laid back office like mine, you could pair it with some leggings (just to make sure your bum is covered if you bend over!). What I like about this dress is that you can wear it all year round – in the summer with some strappy sandals and in the winter with tights.

I consider a LRD (Little Red Dress) a must have for ladies. It’s colorful, sexy, bold and festive!

This Asos shift is super cute and can be worn in February too for Valentine’s Day!

I LOVE this red dress from Modcloth. It’s basically a TopShop knock off – which is most likely a knock off of another designer. Gotta love a knockoff of a knockoff. Anyways, it says that it is out of stock, but you can have ModCloth notify you when its back!

This last dress is totally affordable form Piperlime! It’s very similar to the dress from Modcloth, but its available!

If the red and green frocks are too bold for you, how about some silver and gold.

So I have to confess something…Anthro and I have been “taking a break.” I just haven’t been loving much in the store. They’ve raised prices on some apparel items and I just haven’t had that same excitement as I used to. I like this

This silver Shoshanna frock from Neiman Marcus has a bit of glitz, but I feel that you can wear it to work with a black blazer. Shoshanna dresses are a bit pricy, but do tend to go on sale. They are also amazing for busty gals.

Again, this J. Crew dress is extremely wearable for parties, work and other situations when you need to be a little more dressy.
