the BEST holiday party dresses you’ll want right now!

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is The Nutcracker. I love everything about it. The music, the Sugar Plum Fairy and her land of sweets, and that Christmas Eve party! There was always something about Clara's party that made me want to be a grown up so I could wear elegant ballgowns and go to fancy parties. So obviously this is my favorite time of year to get away with a little more sparkle and drama than usual like it's no biggie!

BEST holiday party gown

Ever wonder what to wear on a cruise formal night or to a black tie event? This floor length black beaded gown is beautiful but won't totally break your piggy bank at $288! It's so timeless you can wear it over and over and feel like Rose from Titanic at every formal event in your future. This year Nordstrom has so many pretty dresses full of sparkle fun for the holidays or whatever occasion you can't wear your loungewear to haha! The drama of this dress is what holiday dreams are made of. I love the classic ballgown silhouette because it is so elegant and figure flattering. The bow accentuates the waist, but also camouflages so you can indulge in a few holiday treats!

The lace bodice is show-stopping, jaw-dropping levels of gorgeous. Did I mention it's also covered in the most stunning beads? They catch the light just right and the whole thing is holiday party magic. This dress is dying to be worn to all your fancy holiday parties, a nice anniversary dinner, the symphony, the options are endless. And please, take it to the Nutcracker.

The perfect neutral bag

This nude YSL bag is the perfect partner in crime for this stunner, because it's so understated. The dress is the hero, but the bag makes the ideal Robin. It's a splurge for sure, but a high end bag in a neutral is worth it. It's an investment piece that you'll wear over and over again. It's such a gorgeous nude that goes with literally everything. I love that it can be worn as a cross body or shoulder bag or carried as a clutch!! The size is perfect for all your night out essentials.
