Your Best Party Frock (or Fashion Show Fashion Show Fashion Show at Lunch - The Christmas Edition!)

I adore party dresses. Like really really love them. I have half a closet of party dresses, some I'm sad to say have only had one outing and yet I can't help but want a new one for Christmas. This little green number follows my party dress standards, cap sleeves or sleeveless, natural waist and full A line skirt. I'm not crazy about the black bow, but I think that could be taken off without much pain!

If you remember back to my very first "Fashion Show at Lunch" Post about the women of Mad Men you might be in agreement that this red beauty looks like it could have walked right out of Joan Harris nee Holloway's closet!

The same could be said for this black dress. I am so glad that this part of 60's fashion has come back with such a vengeance.

If you are really bold and have a really awesome New Years Eve party (read not forgetting to watch the ball drop over at your parents house because you are watching Psych on DVD) to attend this might just be the dress for you. Maybe it is all my years spent around a dance studio, but in my heart of hearts I love me some glittery sequins!

Back to a mid century look, this dress could be dressed up for a party with big chunky gold jewelry or with a cardigan some tights and ballet flats be great for church. Yes this is how I justify things, do not try to get me to stop now.

I'm going to go ahead and address these together, they really are the same dress with just slightly different looks. Great if you have a fancier company Christmas party or if like me you have any kind of association banquets coming up.

A little bit of a 1970's look eh? I bet my mother would love this dress, she has such a soft spot for the style of her youth!
If jewel tones and sparkle aren't really your thing you might like the minty green color here. Bonus this dress can totally be saved for a summer wedding or garden party (don't you go to lots of garden parties?) and it will have been long enough that no one will remember it is your dress from Christmas, or they will remember and think you are thrifty!

Okay full disclosure, I would never where this dress. But if you go for strapless, ruffly, big bow, shiny-shiny frocks this might be the one for you!
Well I hope you all have lots of reasons to dress up this season.
Let me know if you buy any of these dresses OR if you have found another holiday party dress you think I'd love to gush over! And I'll let you know if I end up getting the green dress.
All dresses are from the lovely shop: Modcloth.
