Navy Lace Dress

As my calendar started filling up with events for December, I started the search for great holiday dresses. I ordered a number of dresses from Nordstrom under $100 (you should have seen the box when it arrived!) and couldn’t really choose a favorite one. But, if I absolutely had to choose a favorite though, it would be this dress.

BB Dakota Lace Fit and Flare Dress

This is one of those dresses that can work for so many different events: holiday parties, graduations, daytime parties, weddings. I wore it this weekend to a wedding and it was the absolute perfect dress for the event. There’s enough “flare” in the fit and flare to make it a fun dress for twirling in.

Simple Diamond Necklace

I kept things super, super simple jewelry wise with a skinny pave bangle and my everyday diamond necklace. (I had mine made with a diamond from my mom, but the one I linked looks just like it!)

The back of the dress is gorgeous as well. I wore my hair down because that’s how I know how to do it best, but I think an updo would be a great way to show off the stunning back. Because of the illusion lace, you can’t wear a regular bra with straps. A strapless bra would work, but I went with a “sticky” bra situation because I find it way more comfortable.

Steve Madden Steci Sandals

I’ve had these sandals since the summer; they’re incredibly flattering (instant elongation) and pretty comfortable as far as heels go. I wore flats to the ceremony in the church and switched to these for the party. I literally danced all night long with zero blisters.

There’s a nearly identical dress available as well that comes in eleven different colors.

I got the 0, I’d say it’s pretty true to size but if you’re in between I’d go down


This dress is so gorgeous! I am in love with the color! I have been on the lookout for a dress for my company’s holiday party, and this might be just the one.
