Christmas Party Dresses Galore!

Now that the Christmas party season is in full swing, it’s so hard to know what to wear (tbh, it’s always hard). I at least feel like no matter how many dresses are hanging in my closet, none of them ever work for the given occasion. If I had an unlimited budget I’d definitely buy a few (or many) new ones, but for now I have to settle for window shopping (online, because I don’t dare to go into the madness of shopping in actual stores right now).

PromTimes* has several dresses that would be perfect for any Christmas party. You can wear the fancy dresses on their own or dress them down for a more casual party by throwing a cute cardigan on top.

I really love these two Christmas red dresses, which would be perfect for parties where you want to show your holiday spirit. I really like the one with long sleeves, because I get a bit more coverage during the cold season and lace sleeves are gorgeous in general.

I feel that red is just a perfect, classic choice during the winter time. And it’s a color that looks good on most people. However, if you’d rather go with simple and elegant black, these might be for you:

I personally like cocktail dresses for Christmas and other parties, because I’m not one for wearing long dresses (I constantly fear tripping over my own dress). So these knee-length dresses are my choice for most occasions. Several of PromTimes’s dresses are also well within my somewhat limited budget, which is also a plus. I have a habit of looking through just sale items even when I’m not actually buying anything, just browsing.

Dress to Impress: Dresses for All Occasions

I’ve lately had a bit of a shopping fever, I’m all the time browsing online stores for pretty clothes, even if I don’t actually buy anything. But that’s the fun of online shopping!

Rosa Novias* is a store specializing in dresses for every occasion: they sell prom dresses, wedding dresses, plus size bridesmaid dresses, graduation dresses, maternity bridesmaid dresses, and any other dresses you can imagine with affordable prices. They also carry frocks in several silhouettes, so you are sure to find one that flatters your figure.

Here are a few of my absolute favorite cocktail dresses from their site:

I love this first cocktail dress because it’s so romantic. Perfect for a date night, I’d say! The second dress is a lovely one for prom – or at least it’s something I would wear if we had a prom here in Finland, which we don’t! It’s fun, flirty and youthful. The third dress is a great bridesmaid dress – no one wants their bridesmaids looking frumpy! Also, I feel that ruching is flattering on everyone because it helps hide those little flaws that one might feel insecure about.

This purple one is also a great bridesmaid dress: I absolutely adore the color because it’s so rich and enticing. And the wedding dresses here are gorgeous – light, airy, romantic, and simple. I’m a big believer in simplicity when it comes to wedding dresses!

And best of all, each of these dresses is under 200 dollars, which is great for someone on a budget (like me). They also come in a variety of colors so you can choose one that works with your complexion and hair color.

What to Wear to a Wedding: Style Guide

wedding what-to-wear

I got invited to my cousin’s wedding and I wanted to share a little style guide on what to wear to a wedding where you are as a guest. I haven’t attended too many weddings, so it was a lot of fun to try out these different styles.

    • the first dress I love and it would’ve been appropriate for the wedding (it’s modest but stylish)
    • the second dress I decided against because I felt I would’ve looked like I was part of the wedding – so this style would be great for a bridesmaid or a flower girl but maybe not a guest
    • this last dress I like and it would’ve also been appropriate but since it is winter right now I wanted to go with a more colorful dress

So in the end I went with this bright red short dress, which I got from Mango in Indonesia. I covered up with a cute but edgy blazer from Fashion Union.
