Holiday Dress Guide 2015

First and foremost, I would like to say Happy Veterans Day!  It’s a very special day to celebrate, because without our veterans this country wouldn’t be what it is today, and without those currently serving we could be living in a much more dangerous world.

As a veteran, I just want to say that those that serve in all branches of the military are some of the most professional, intelligent, caring, and selfless people out there.  Many of them have become my very best friends and family.  They sacrifice so much for the protection of others; missing weddings, birthdays, holidays, and even births.  They deserve to be celebrated every day, but if you ask them it feels awkward even just getting thanked when they are wearing the uniform.

To all those that have ever served or are currently serving, Thank You, from the bottom of my heart, and may you realize that what you do is truly amazing.

In honor of Veterans Day, I’ve put together a red, white/silver, and blue themed Holiday Dress Guide with cocktail dresses perfect for all of those upcoming holiday parties.  The best part is that all of them are under $100, some are even a lot less!

With the right shoes and accessories these would be perfect for work holiday parties, or a festive gathering hosted by friends.  All of them are short and most are sleeveless so if you live in a colder climate, topping off your outfit with a chic warm coat is probably necessary.  Here in Southern California, warm coats aren’t necessary even in December.

I love the back of this dress, and the fit and flare silhouette is super flattering.

If it’s appropriate to wear something a little sexier, this body con dress looks perfect.  It has 4.5 stars from 110 reviews, so lots of people seem to like it, and I like the $56 price tag!

This lace wrap dress is great if you need or want to be a little more conservative.  Even though the sleeves are lace, they may add a little warmth to your body in the middle of December.

Again, a fit and flare silhouette looks great and wearing white in winter isn’t a faux pas with the right accessories.  I love the silver shoes that are paired with the dress on the model.

If you feel like sparkling during the holiday season, this lace and sequined dress is really pretty.  No need for many jewels because the dress is so adorned.

This asymmetrical hemmed dress is a little sexier with the fit, but still has a conservative neckline.

I must have a thing with lace right now, because I’m loving all of these lace overlay dresses.  This navy one is so sweet with the eyelash trimmed lace.

Hopefully, these red, white, and blue dresses get you excited for holiday cocktail parties.  I love the idea of doing a color other than red for these events, blue is a bit unexpected, but just as festive with silver or gold accessories.

What do you think of these dresses?  Do you have a lot of holiday parties to attend?  Oh, and Happy Veteran’s Day again!

    Happy Veteran’s Day!

    I really love the first red lace dress. It would still be cute in colder temps with opaque black tights. And everything should be accessorized with gold. ALL THE GOLD!

    It’s funny how tastes change… I was all about silver for the longest time, but now I can’t get enough gold. Though I still prefer silver for fine jewelry and forever pieces…

      I didn’t even think of wearing tights, probably because I HATE them! Yes, love everything gold! Happy Veteran’s Day to you too!

    I love these dresses! I’m on duty for our Party so I won’t have the opportunity to wear one.
