So Many Dresses but I Only Need One

I know it is not even Thanksgiving yet, but I can't help but look for holiday dresses for the upcoming Christmas parties! Since I have been taking it easy lately, I have been online more than normal (I know hard to believe because I am ALWAYS online), and I have found some really fabulous finds.  Not all of these radiant frocks break the bank either, which is great since we all have to buy a million Christmas presents! 
I have been to so many online stores ranging from Modcloth and Nastygal (my newly found love) to Free People.  There are so many gorgeous options that I am having a really hard time making a final decision. That's where you guys come in!  I have narrowed it down to 6 dresses and I want my lovelies to help me decide which one will be best.
These were the dresses I found at Nastygal.

I am such a sequins lover! Anything that is sparkly and shiny, I buy.

This is the perfect red dress, but do I want red for the holidays or maybe something different this year?

And shiny AGAIN!

Here are the dresses that I found at Modcloth.

This one is pretty disco-esque but I love the flashiness of it! (of course)

This is inspired by my new Mad Men obsession.  I though I could top it off with retro curls and hot red lips!

This dress reminds me of the Prada Fall collection. I love the bustier embellishment on this frock!

I found these on Free People, which is my favorite store EVER!

I love lace anything, I am such a sucker for it. I swear I have at least 4 black lace tops hanging in my closet.

I love red and black together, you can never go wrong with this combination.

This ivory lace (of course) dress looks so wintery to me. Especially paired with black tights. I am telling you, black tights go with EVERYTHING!

So I want to know!!! Which one!!???

The second from the bottom Free People dress is one of my favorites. I featured it on my site a week or so ago when I fell in love with it. <3

Jackie said...

The red one from Nastygal and the red/black from Freepeople. They are all lovely.


Cowbiscuits said...

UGHHH you guys get so many cool websites!! I love the first dress it's just amazing and will suit the WHOLE holiday season and new year ;) xx

Brianna said...

I vote either the red one or the silver one with bows on the back from Nastygal. :) You'd look amazing!

Oh wow that is a tough choice. I'm loving the REDs ( duh!) and all the sequence, but since you just turn into a Mad Men fan i think you should go with the Prada look alike =)

Fashion Butter said...

Ooo, the red and black is very interesting ... my vote is for that one or the disco-esque one. Love the silhouette.

Ugh I need to do more online browsing for holiday dresses. I always wait until the very last minute to find something to wear to holiday soirees. I especially dread dressing for my work holiday party which is a bit more formal and conservative. I think your mad men inspired dress could really work for the occasion!

Marissa said...

The 5th one is my favorite! Seriously I'm headed to NastyGal now and that justtt might be my Christmas Eve dress :)


Erika said...

Angela -

AHHH! OK this is a toughie.... I am in love with all three NastyGal dresses.... and the Mad Men inspired dress is to DIE for. I can't narrow it down any more than the silver sequin dress and the said ModCloth dress. I think you would look smokin' in the sequin number :) But the ModCloth dress is like nothing I have ever seen!

AHHH... I don't know! Both? Yessss :)

Let us know what you choose, please!

Who says you only NEED one? You can have MANY! I love LOVE the 2nd red dress, and modcloth is the BEST! I love dresses they make you feel so feminine!

I love that red dress the second one from mod cloth, been lusting for it forever

Frozen Fashion said...

Are you going to formal affairs or casual cocktail parties?

My favourites are from your Modcloth choices.
The first and third.

My favourite being the first one. It is the most unique, polished, sexy and femine. Also you could wear to both formal or more casual affairs. There is alot you do with that dress!


Liv said...

Okay so picking four isn't remotely helpful with your decision-making but I love the first and third sparkly Nastygal dresses, and the Modcloth disco and Prada-ish dresses. Are here I am attempting to shop my closet this year... my resolve is melting away...

silvergirl said...

OOH I like 1,3 and 5 the best.
