It has been a LONG time since I’ve needed a party dress. My husband’s company doesn’t have Christmas parties. Wah, wah, wah, wah, wahhhhh… They need to get on that. However, this year, my husband was recently given a pretty awesome award from our college, OSU, and I needed a dress for the event. Enter stress out mode and panic. I hit up Nordstrom and actually found a lot of great options. I’m sharing my picks in case you might be on the lookout for a dress for this time of year.
ONE // This was a top contender. The seaming was super flattering as were the tops of the shoulders. Its a very form fitting dress but forgiving at the same time if that makes sense.
TWO + FIVE // I’m really digging the two piece options lately. This was fun and I love how you can get more looks out of it by wearing them separately.
THREE: This was a great dress on. Loved the sleeves and fuller skirt (that back of the sleeve has a pretty detail). I may go back for this one since it would be a great dress for any time. You can change the look by doing a different belt or sash.
FOUR // This was my pick! Loved that it wasn’t a typical plain black dress and the lace detail is gorgeous in person. The material is very forgiving and I love how the lace goes over the shoulders a little more. This was also my husband’s favorite 🙂
SIX // For the love of God, somebody better get this dress!!!! This was by far my favorite dress. I love it so much!!! It was super flattering and insanely gorgeous in person. Sadly, it just wasn’t right for this particular event. Borderline tears having to leave this one behind. I was like the kid in the toy store where the kid is in hysterics trying to grasp said toy while being pulled away by mom.
I need more fancy events in my life.
