DressesStylist is back with Dear Family, for another week and we are going to look at some holiday dresses that would be perfect for company parties, or any fancy events coming up in this most, wonderful time of the year.

I just attended a Christmas party with my husband last week, hosted by the company that he just started working for. Pushpay is an online mobile app payment platform and my husband works with their echurchgiving division which facilitates donations to churches and not-for profit organizations. The company is based out of New Zealand and has just recently opened their American offices. 

The party was a lot of fun and I ate a lot of (read: too much) delicious food. There was a hot chocolate bar with whipped cream, chocolate sprinkles, marshmallows and peppermint candy, a pie and christmas cookie bar and a holiday feast featuring cranberry, walnut stuffed chicken breast, roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, rolls and stuffing. Like I said, I ate way too much. 

The party included a live band, many speeches and ended with the start-up company's employees singing christmas carols together. It was a fabulous and cozy evening. 

This was my first time meeting my husband's co-workers so I wanted to look nice but the invitation suggested the party was causal. I am not one that understands causal dress at parties so even though many people wore jeans and cardigans. The question looming in my mind for weeks was "what do I wear?" I opted for a long black dress shift dress and open-toed boots. 

I wish the party has been a touch fancier as I would have chosen one of these gorgeous dresses from DresseStylist. It may not have been obvious to you from my last post but along with all of the beautiful Wedding Dresses, DressesStylist also offers fantastic bridesmaid and formal dresses for many occasions.

This emerald beauty is a beautiful shape, and gorgeous for holiday parties. I imagine wearing this with sparkly jewelry and black heels.

This dress is gorgeous because of the shape and the drape of the chiffon. I adore chiffon and think it makes any dress look so romantic and beautiful. I love this color for the holidays because it is slightly unexpected but absolutely stunning.

This dress just looks so classic. Who wouldn't want to stand out in a red, satin dress during a Christmas celebration? I would probably wear a bold red lipstick and my hair in an up-do to add even more drama. 

What do you think? What are you wearing to all the holiday events you have planned?
