Three Dresses For Different Parties - All Glorious In Their Own Right!
Decisions, decisions! Holiday time fast approaches and we must make some command decisions as to what to wear. I think what is more important than what price. While there are some lovely bargain discounts out there right now, it's fatal to be governed by deep discounting and choices made for only that reason are going to be bad ones. But it's a holiday party dress that will make the whole room take a sharp inward breath when you set foot inside the door that we're looking for and there are some that will fit that bill for us. First of all is this a special occasion? Engagement party? Retirement party? Pre wedding celebration? Or is this a good friends get together that's going to be relaxed and informal with lots of fun, music and laughter? We've got to figure just what kind of a party this is and then we'll get the dress right!
