Friday’s Fab Favorites – The Perfect Holiday Party Dress

Happy Friday!!  Can you believe we’re nearing the end of November? The holiday season has well and truly begun – and it’s only going to get even better! I know I’ve already mentioned it, but I completely adore this time of year.

So today, inspired by my own search for the perfect party dress, I’m sharing an oh-so-glamorous look guaranteed to wow at any holiday event (or New Years Eve!). How GORGEOUS is this sparkle bow back dress? It also comes in a pretty cream color. As soon as I found it, it was major love at first sight! I just think it’s the most amazing dress for the holidays, New Years Eve – or even my birthday soon! The dazzling hair bow, black embellished clutch (use code THANKS2013 for 20% off!) and gold cap heels are perfect finishing touches for a style that will turn heads as you walk into the room…
