tis the season for party dresses

Okay it's cold out.  I took the girls out for a walk today... well it felt like tonight since it was 4 pm and the sun was setting... why does daylight savings exist... and it was cold... like winter cold.  I can just sense that snow is around the corner.  The one good thing that snow signifies (besides Christmas) is holiday party season.  We so rarely get dressed up so I always look forward to a good Christmas party where I will be required to slip out of my skinny jeans or leggings and into a dress.

Of course I am still carrying around pregnancy weight... I am losing weight... slowly... but surely... but no dress in the closet is up to the task of fitting this body.

So..... options... yes please.

I am loving that red dress!

Do you have a holiday party to dress up for?  What will you wear?


  1. Yes! I love a good party dress. I love #1.

  2. My favorite is the red dress, but I'm always partial to Anthropologie :) This is one that I have in my closet, but haven't worn yet:


    I think the gold will go well with the holiday season :)

  3. I love, love dress #1 but whichever you choose Ashley, I know you'll look amazing! Have you picked out the girls Christmas dresses yet?

  4. I love the grey Anthro dress!

    I just bought this Alice+Olivia one: http://www.shopbop.com/mid-length-ruched-dress-alice/vp/v=1/845524441919119.htm?folderID=2534374302063518&fm=other-shopbysize-brand-viewall&colorId=17705

  5. I have a sparkly number from topshop (bought on eBay YEARS before I even met my husband). Still haven't worn it. I'm not sure I've been to a party that really warranted dressing ALL OUT. But a have a few other sequin pieces that are a little "safer". For some reason when I think of Christmas, I think sequins! Maybe it has something to do with it being dark for so much of the winter!

  6. 1] i hate daylight savings. i've told my husband that just about everyday since we had to change the clocks.
    2] i think i need that grey anthro dress.
    3] i just found your blog and LOVE it.
    4] i totally feel like my life is calmly chaotic too!

  7. I love that red dress! Of course I love anything red :P

    Unfortunately there are no parties to dress up for here. And since I'm a freeze baby, I don't wear dresses in the winter...I will find pants and a nice sweater.

    I also just found your blog. You have a new follower here! :)
