Dresses to Catch Your Fancy

'Tis the season for holiday parties, and whether you're attending a work function, family dinner, or black tie affair, this is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a new frock. We have dresses for any occasion in a variety of cuts, colors, and fine fabrics.

       On the left, a satin brocade mini dress in bright lipstick red is eyecatching to start, plus the attached brooch and keyhole cutout add some extra oomph ($24) .On the right, in a flattering berry red, is a satin dress with a ladylike hemline, draped bodice, and bows at the shoulders ($38).
At the left is a gorgeous floor length emerald gown, with a full skirt supported by layers of tulle. The boned strapless bodice has lovely bows, and best of all, it has pockets ($38). At right, a black velvet dress gets sparkly with green sequins on a black embroidered appliqued bodice ($32).

Here are two black strapless dresses, each with a very different spin. On the left, a modest tea length hem and a sophisticated lace overlay keep it classy ($24). On the right, a short number with lace sequin bodice and satin skirt keeps it sassy. It does have a large sequin rosette at the waist which I would recommend removing as soon as possible ($28).

On the left is a LBD that could definitely be put in year-round rotation. The full skirt adds curves to the straightest figure, and a row of matching satin buttons up the spine adds back detail ($28). On the right is a deep forest green dress in sumptous velvet, with ruching throughout the bodice down to a dropped waist and asymmetrical full skirt ($28).
