You may think it’s a little early to be shopping for holiday dresses but I can assure you it is not. Why? Because if you wait until it gets closer you run the risk of having the same dress as someone else. And even though we’d all handle a situation like that with grace and class, you know that on the inside you’d be seriously bummed out. So if you start shopping now, chances are, that won’t happen. That being said, I was at Accents yesterday and saw two fun frocks that would be perfect for your holiday soirees. Details make budget-friendly clothing look expensive and designer-made; that’s why I love the red and silver dress pictured here. The cool pleating on the side makes an otherwise blah dress chic and unique. And because it’s just $44 you’ll have extra money to spend on Christmas gifts, or heck, another dress. If you want something a bit more blingy try this black number. Again, great detailing. And you can’t tell from this picture, but it has a sexy, open back. It’s $52. Beat that.
