Holiday Party Dress

Jacket: Aqua, old, similar, budget option, LOVE this all white one
Dress: Fab'rik (runs small)
Clutch: Old Navy, old
Shoes: Jean-Michel Cazabat, similar
Earrings: Baublebar, old
Bracelets: Baublebar (here, here), C.Wonder, old

I hope your week is going well!  It is crazy that is the middle of November and Christmas is right around the corner.  I have my first holiday party this weekend and while I love getting dressed up, I don't love spending a fortune on holiday party dresses (or fancy dresses in general) since the cost per wear is never very good.  My requirements for a holiday dress are simple: it has to be pretty, figure flattering, versatile enough to be worn to multiple events, and not too expensive.  Luckily, this Fab'rik dress hits all of my requirements and definitely doesn't break the bank at $52 (!).  Apologies in advance to all of my friends as you will be seeing a lot of this dress over the holiday season!

  6. I am SO with you on the cost per wear aspect of an outfit and holiday looks are so very specific that you don't always get to wear them often! This look is stunning and inexpensive! I love it!


  7. Cute dress, I really like the gold mix with the silver. Very nice and chic like. I love remix of any idea, and I can't wait to see the different way you wear that dress.

  14. When I saw this I thought, "that's the perfect holiday look." Well done! The dress is not so over the top holiday that you couldn't wear it other times yet it still feels festive. We have several holiday parties coming up as well but none of them really require you to get too fancy.
