Adrianna Papell Long Sleeve Sequin Little Black Dress

Holiday is here! I love shooting holiday looks because it gives me a chance to dress up, which I rarely do anymore! Adrianna Papell is a brand I have been working with for a long time and they never fail to provide the most gorgeous dresses. Personally I love their beaded and sequin dresses the most because they are so unique and the quality is amazing. Your dress isn’t going to fall apart on the dance floor! If it’s not, this brand should be one of your first stops when looking for a holiday or formal party!

Holiday Dresses 2014

I love dressing up. Anyone who knows me knows this. I have a collection of dresses that sit in my closet and it’s sad, because I wish I had more places to wear them! But it’s finally holiday season and I have a reason to get all fancy and break them out! Here is a list of some of my favorite stores to purchase dresses and party accessories, and of course here are some of my favorites items this year!

Anthropologie, Shopbop, RevolveClothing, and Nordstrom are my go-to’s just because they always have a great selection and great return policies because when you order online you never really know how things are going to fit. Plus, Shopbop and Revolve both have free shipping and returns!

Forever 21 is great for inexpensive dresses that you will only wear once and little black dresses, because they don’t look as cheap! They also have 50% off a bunch of their winter items for a Pre-Black Friday Sale right now, so check out some of their accessories and fur items to go with your dresses!

ASOS is awesome because they offer a huge variety of sizes. They carry petite, plus, and maternity which is hard to find at a store like Forever21. They also have a pretty good price range as well. There are dresses that start in the thirties or you could spend up to a few hundred if you wanted.

Gowns Galore!

O how I wish I had somewhere to wear these beautiful gowns. Every year around Christmas (or around the Oscars) I just die over gorgeous dresses like these. However, I do not have any sort of reason to go to galas, or art openings, or fabulous awards ceremonies…sigh. So I just lust over them and maybe someday…right?
