Decked out for the Holidays

There is so much to love about the holidays- family time, holiday lights, remembering what we are thankful for, holiday musicals and shows… and the list goes on.  With your calendar lighting up with events for entire month of December, you will need some great outfits to look your holly-jolly best.

Because I am bit fashion-obsessed, I started asking Tina Sussman, my friend and shopper at BG (read here for more on Tina) in September, to “grab me any holiday dresses that come in!”

This year, my inbox is brimming with offers from every retailer I know offering shiny, velvety, sequined holiday options. Maybe I’m just paying closer attention this year, but it sure seems that the trend is for “dressier” this season. I’ve sifted through it all and here are my picks, sure to please all who deserve lots and lots of presents this season (like me!!).

This Milly dress is a triple-threat: it’s the color of the season, rocks the off the shoulder trend, and is at a good price point.  And free shipping and free returns! Available here.


This one’s fun and sassy. Self-Portrait makes beautiful dresses. (Note they are UK sizes and run small). Available here.
