Party Dresses 2017

Party dress / exact clutch / similar shoes (here & here)

One thing I love about this festive season is all the fun parties and of course the party dresses I get to wear! This past weekend I attended a Christmas Gala held by our church and wore this gorgeous boho-inspired party dress.  This beauty is from H & M and is definitely one of my fave dresses ever.  I received so many “I’m in love with your dress” compliments and no one believed it was from H & M. If you are interested I would suggest swooping it up soon as it’s selling out fast. I’m wearing an extra small and I would say the sizing runs larger as I would usually wear a small or medium.

I’m definitely a black dress kinda girl when it comes to events but I prefer some detailing so it’s not basic or boring. The longer sheer overlay of this one is stunning .  I was also dying over the pretty gold embroidery and knew it would be perfect with this chic clutch and my strappy gold sandals.  Black dresses and gold accessories were made for each other.  I’m equally smitten with the three beautiful overlay dresses in the collage below (#3, 4 & 6) .

The evening was wonderful, I was with my sister, sister-in-law’s, many nieces and friends.  It was a night of celebration, music and inspiring words.  All the women were dressed to the nines so I enjoyed seeing all of the great outfits for more holiday inspiration.

I found these perfect party dresses for you and the best part is that they are all under $80 and most are under $40!

    Oh I can see why that dress got you so many compliments, it’s beautiful! 🙂 Such a pretty style on you too, you are great in a maxi! 🙂

    Hope you had a great weekend! We did a lot of Christmassy things like putting our tree up which was good. They predicted wild weather but thankfully it stayed away all weekend.
