As my calendar started filling up with events for December, I started the search for great holiday dresses. I ordered a number of dresses from Nordstrom under $100 (you should have seen the box when it arrived!) and couldn’t really choose a favorite one. But, if I absolutely had to choose a favorite though, it would be this dress.
This is one of those dresses that can work for so many different events: holiday parties, graduations, daytime parties, weddings. I wore it this weekend to a wedding and it was the absolute perfect dress for the event. There’s enough “flare” in the fit and flare to make it a fun dress for twirling in.
The back of the dress is gorgeous as well. I wore my hair down because that’s how I know how to do it best, but I think an updo would be a great way to show off the stunning back. Because of the illusion lace, you can’t wear a regular bra with straps. A strapless bra would work, but I went with a “sticky” bra situation because I find it way more comfortable.
I’ve had these sandals since the summer; they’re incredibly flattering (instant elongation) and pretty comfortable as far as heels go. I wore flats to the ceremony in the church and switched to these for the party. I literally danced all night long with zero blisters.
Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
