Happy NOVEMBER! Happy Thursday! Did you survive Halloween? How many trick-or-treaters did you have? I don’t mean to alarm anyone but it’s exactly 3 weeks until Thanksgiving and a little less than 8 weeks until Christmas. YIKES! I’ve started preparing all the 2018 Holiday Gift Guides which will launch tomorrow! I’ve decided to start November with today’s post on Cocktail Dresses. After all, it’s never too early to order everything for the party season ahead.
I was going to roll out this cocktail dress blog post a little more towards the end of November but I had several readers request that I do this one early. I guess you all have some fancy shindigs to go to. So I am happy to oblige. Additionally, I have already begun curating the 2018 Gift Guides for you. Can you guess which one I am starting with tomorrow?
Whether you dress up for a Thanksgiving Dinner event, have several holiday parties to attend or you just need a few more cocktail dresses in your closet, this little black Point d’Esprit Sheath Dress is one you will definitely want to order. The fit is SO GOOD! The dress is a nylon/spandex blend allowing it to hug the body in all the right places. I am wearing a size 6 and it fits true to size. By the way, I am 5’8″ tall and usually prefer my dresses below the knee but this one works for me. I love the illusion jewel neck and 3/4 sleeve.
I paired it with these pumps and this beautiful Charlotte Max Galaxy Clutch. If your event is while the sun is still out, be sure to grab these sunglasses. Below you will find lots of cocktail dress selections, jewelry, bags and shoes. All of them are perfect for any holiday affair. There are several retailers that are my go-to’s for cocktail dress attire: Neiman Marcus (currently having a 30% OFF sale event), Net-A-Porter, Shopbop (currently having a Surprise Sale – up to 40% OFF) and Nordstrom. You will always be able to find something at these stores. I order online and try everything on in my own closet.
How many holiday parties do you have on your calendar this year? Plan ahead! xoxo – Tanya
P.S. For this type of dress, I suggest this strapless bra or wear these.
