Holiday Sparkle | Holiday Dress Part 1

Nov 6, 2014

With the holidays right around the corner now is a legit time to start planning for all your holiday events and parties.  I swear the good dresses get gone fast.  We actually have quite a few parties this year that I am super excited about.  Last year I had just had Frances Moon so the holidays were a bit of a blur. I didn’t attend one party nor could I really indulge in Holiday cocktails since I was nursing.  This year I am ready.

So I bought this dress because of the sequins. I found it online at Nordstrom, their holiday dress collection is pretty awesome, and promptly ordered it.  I have always wanted a sparkly dress, I mean that is what the holidays are for right??  Time to bust out the sequins and shine.  There is a fine line between tacky sequins and good sequins and I like to think this falls in the good category.  Plus ladies it is so stretchy and comfortable, an added bonus while indulging in all the delicious holiday treats.

I just love the flirty skirt part.

Since it is stretchy I find that is a super flattering silhouette.

The back has the cutest scoopneck.

My serious face.  I call this my Blue Steel look.

The dress runs TTS.  I am wearing a size 4 for those curious about how it fits.

I think another cute way to wear this dress would be paired with black tights and booties for a more casual look.

This is how excited I am about the holidays and my sequined dress.

(Matt insisted I include this candid picture, it is pretty funny).

If you need a more conservative look for a work event, I really like this classic black dress with the dot details.

and if you want a real bargain this sequin dress is 40% off but only a few sizes left.

Nordstrom has free shipping and returns which makes shopping so much easier.  You can try out several dresses in your own home and send back what doesn’t work!  Shop the entire collection of holiday dresses at Nordstrom Here.
