It just wouldn't be the holidays without holiday parties! I've already been to quite a few: a holiday party for a visiting friend, a company holiday party, a blog event, and two performances of the Nutcracker! I love dressing up and celebrating with family and friends, so it's important for me to have the right outfit that reflects how special the season is.
But with all the events going on, finding time to shop for that perfect holiday dress can be challenging. Fortunately there's LightInTheBox.com, where you can find the perfect holiday dress no matter what your occasion, style, body type or personality. They literally have thousands of dresses to choose from, including festive party dresses for the holidays. They have a whole section for little black dresses, which suits me just fine, because in my opinion you can never have too many little black dresses! Black is the perfect slimming, elegant color, and you really can't go wrong with a little black dress. You can dress it up or down, add jewelry or accessories or let it stand on its own. Here are some of my favorite little black dresses from LightInTheBox:
Who says lace is for fuddy-duddies? This lace dress is so elegant, I can almost imagine Jackie Kennedy Onassis wearing it.
The best thing about the little black dress is that it can flatter any shape and size. LightInTheBox has gorgeous dresses for plus-size women -- like this sheath dress -- so you can look good in any size! No one should have to hide their curves in a shapeless tent!
Okay, this chiffon dress isn't black, but isn't burgundy the new black? The dress fulfills all the basic requirements of the little black dress: simple, classic, universally flattering. Besides, you can also get it in black if you want.
Here's a version of the above dress in black, this time with a sparkly brooch on the waistband. Who needs jewelry when your little black dress comes complete with bling?
I'll probably never attend an occasion formal enough to justify this beautiful black ballgown (the photo shows the dress in navy blue but it's available in black), but a girl can dream, can't she?
