Holiday Party Dresses

I promise I have holiday standards. I let Halloween and Thanksgiving have their due before breaking out the Christmas tree. When it comes to prepping for all of those holiday parties however, there's nothing wrong with getting a little head start. I'm sequin, leather and velvet obsessed, so the minute a chill hits the air, I'm breaking out my first sequins of the season. I'm also having a party dress moment and I've seen so many fun dresses that I'm ready to hit the party circuit. This black and white stripe fit and flare dress might just be my very favorite. I'm usually one who likes to pile on the accessories, but this dress makes a statement on its own. I wanted to keep it simple so I opted for a bib necklace and the most kitschy Kate Spade champagne bottle clutch.
