Christmassy Cocktail Dresses

I was out shopping a few days ago and noticed that the Christmas dresses are all out in force.  I absolutely love this time of year, with rail after rail glistening with cocktail dresses, glittering with sequins and sparkles galore.  That has to be the key thing I look for when I go to buy a dress for my Christmas party – it’s GOT to sparkle!

Christmas is probably the only time of year that we could get away with wearing such a ridiculously sparkly dress, so make the most of it.  We are lucky that gorgeous cocktail dress come in tons of styles and designs – the hardest part is choosing one.  A sequined dress doesn’t just inject a touch of glamour; it also puts me in mind of the Hollywood starlets of the past.  And another thing – cocktail dresses don’t have to be black!  I get so bored when I’m chatting to my girlfriends about our Christmas cocktail dresses and they all begin with “Well it’s black….” So I went on the hunt for a sparkly, sequined dress of COLOR. 

When I typed the words “sequined cocktail dress” into my search engine, there were tonnes of sites popping up, and a lot of them were money-motivated.  The top sites were the ones offering cocktail dresses at around a mere $30, which got my pulse racing  (and so many styles, from retro and modern to racy and demure). I adored the red sequined numbers but was worried I would come across as a bit of a Jessica Rabbit wannabe, so settled with a gorgeous lilac dress with a shabby chic feel – brought to you by Kate Moss no less!  So remember, when it comes to cocktail dresses, black isn’t always best!
