While gift shopping I also did a little bit of holiday window shopping. If you’re looking for a holiday or New Year’s party dress in a pinch, I’ve whipped up my list of favorite go-to’s when I’m on a time crunch.

1.) White House | Black Market

If you’re looking for luxe this is the place to go. I was mezmorised by the outfits in their holiday window displays. Check out their Holiday Boutique online and in stores. The White House Black Market collection this season is absolutely luscious! I’ve never been big fan of velvet but after taking a look at their pieces, I was converted. You’ll find a beautiful blend of velvet, florals and lace. (Currently running a 40% entire purchase SALE).

2.) Dillard’s

Dillard’s offers a wide selection of dresses in all shapes, sizes and styles. The prices are very reasonable too. My favorite section to hit up is BCBG. The brand is fresh and contemporary.  I love how fashionable and stylish the designs are. You’ll find a fun mix of colors, textures and prints.

3.) Francesca’s 

They’re currently having a 40% Off on select holiday dresses. The store only carries 4-5 sizes in each style, so it’s not very likely anyone else will be wearing your dress at your party. Need accessories? Sparkles and pearls are a plenty.  You’ll be sure to stand out in style!


4.) ROSS

I’m surprised at how much luck I find at ROSS. I almost always find a dress here for most occasions, and for much less. I found a gorgeous evergreen romper in a sheer and lace fabric a few months back. I snagged it for just $12.99! I’ll have to post a share a pic on my instagram @thewindowshoppingdiva for you all. The shoes are hit or miss.

Style Tip: For a New Year’s outfit I recommend shopping on Boxing Day (the day after Christmas). Most evening wear and dressy attire go on sale this time of year and the markdowns are hard to beat!
