It's Party Time!

We've finally hit holiday party season! Anyone else busted out their Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and *NSync Christmas music yet?! I've been singing at the top of my lungs over here since Thanksgiving week. Much to the chagrin of those around me. 

I can't even begin to tell you how happy glitter, sparkles, and sequins make me. Is it pretty obvious from some of my fav holiday party dress pics?! These are some suggestions that I have if you have a fancy office Christmas party. 



1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11/12


There are three rules I abide by when choosing whether a dress is appropriate...
  • cleavage is a no-no. I'm not saying no v-necks or low necklines, but make sure the girls are IN. Ya know what I mean?! 
  • Make sure you aren't in a mini. They are not appropriate for any corporate office party. Above the knee is fine, but a mini? No. Use the old-school test where it's no shorter than the bottom of your finger-tips when your hands are down by your sides. Anyone else have to do that for the principal in high school?! 
  • Bandaid skirts (which is what I like to call them) are never appropriate for a work party. Save it for NYE with your friends.

Use wisdom y'all. If people would confuse you for a Vegas cocktail waitress, chances are it's not a good fit for an office party. If a simple dress is what you feel comfortable with, remember you can always bling it out! 

Bring on those parties!

  1. My husband's office party this year will be lunch at a nice restaurant. Although the above options are lovely, I don't think any of them will work for this particular function. I'd love to hear your suggestions! I'm sure you will be wearing the perfect thing, and I'm just trying to keep up.
