Holiday time means party time and party time means finding outfits to wear to your office party, family dinners, and various other fancy outings.
Dress yourself up as a present this holiday season in this Ovenbird dress ($159) by local designer Birds of North America, by Hayley Gibson. Stretch cotton with bow and ruffled pocket details, this one'll be perfect under the mistletoe.
This Supayana dress also features a bow, as well as lace and sequins. This cotton tunic dress can be dressed to the nines with lace tights, heels, jewelry and a belt, or dressed down post-gift-opening over leggings.
This sequin-topped tunic ($169) from Jennifer Glasgow is the ultimate party dress. It comes in navy blue, wine red and a coffee brown. Shimmer the holidays away.
