9 Fab Fall Holiday Party Dresses

Woo hoo! We made it to the weekend friends!  I’m back from a quick trip to LA to shoot the Gibson X Glam collection and I’m thrilled that you are as excited about it as I am!  It’s hard to not get to show you everything already, but I know you are gonna love it and look absolutely fabulous in it!  The pieces are soooo good and can be styled so many ways.  Mark your calendar for November 12, the date the collection launches at Nordstrom!

This week ended the 2nd HWH Fitness Challenge. Wow, what an amazing response we’ve had! Nearly 2,000 of you joined along in the private Honey We’re Healthy Facebook Group, which I’ll definitely keep going, even though the challenge has ended. If you haven’t yet joined, it’s not too late! It will be awesome to keep encouraging each other throughout the upcoming holiday season!

Congratulations are in order for Paula (Kansas City), Angela (Mendon, MO) and Christina (Indianapolis) for winning a $100 gift card to Nordstrom! If you’re feeling slim and trim after the challenge, now is the time to reward yourself with some new digs . . . perhaps a new party dress?!

I’ve had lots of requests for what to wear to a Fall wedding and upcoming holiday parties and found several winners for you! Let’s get to it!



Let’s start with this classy dress with lace overlay. It’s partially lined so it keeps you covered and comfortable, but still shows some leg. The intricate lace pattern is so EXTRA and the defined waist flatters your middle and the accentuates your smallest part.  I really like the little short sleeves for something feminine and different.  At under $90, you will feel so pretty in this dress.

FIT : This dress runs small, so I sized up to a size Small.

For those of you that like a little va va voom with your dress, this one by Bardot is for you.  Bardot is known for their stunning cocktail dresses with intricate detailing like lace and crochet overlays.  They look quite expensive, but are very reasonably priced.

Equal parts classy and sexy, this dress front has a deep v-cut, but you can still wear a bra with it and it’s fully lined. I love the loose hem at the bottom and the charming v-cut in the back. The embroidery adds a beautiful contrast to the lace for a really stunning pattern.

The navy is such a pretty Fall color that works for so many different occasions!

If you’re invited to a fancy Fall bridal or baby shower, this long sleeve floral dress would be perfect as it’s versatile for both day and night.  The keyhole cutout adds a peek of skin but isn’t revealing and the sleeves are long and billowy to balance it out.  The Fall floral is super popular this year, especially when the floral is against a dark background like this deep navy.

How stunning is this plaid dress?!  The red and navy plaid in this dress certainly says holidays and Christmas card photo shoots!  It’s so fun and gorgeous and I could just see the whole family all decked out in their Christmas cards in it! It’s such a flattering A-line fit.

The back is a darling V, but you can still wear a strapless bra with it.  The collar makes such a beautiful statement. The grosgrain ribbon belt is a sweet touch and you won’t believe this dress is machine washable!  And you can definitely have fun rocking a red lip with this one!

FIT: TTS, wearing size 0.  Y’all will love that this dress is available in size 0-22.

Next up, for something a little more fancy, this lace overlay dress is gorgeous and also under $90!  In these pictures, the underlay fabric has a purple hue to it, but it’s definitely more nude in person.

I’m crazy for the detail on this dress and the lace pattern goes in a chevron pattern.  They keyhole neck opens it up, but it isn’t too revealing. And it looks as good coming as it does going.  You can wear this backless bra for some lift and coverage while keeping your back bare. It’s recommended to order one size up, but for me, my normal size is what fit best.

FIT : This dress runs slightly small, so if you are between sizes, I’d size up.  I’m wearing a size 1/2 .

You won’t believe where I scored this sassy dress!  And it’s under $30!  It’s got a sexy halter neckline perfect for showing off your shoulders- and everyone has sexy shoulders. The crochet overlay is really pretty and it’s fully lined.  I love how a bit of the crochet hangs below the lining to show it off above the knee.  It’s absolutely stunning in person and it actually makes me want the white one now too!

The dress is more navy than it appears in the photos below, but you get a truer sense of how pretty and flattering the dress is.  It was completely comfortable to wear and sit in also.  #keeper!

FIT: TTS, wearing size XS

Maxi Dress

If you’re looking for more of a gown, this maxi dress with glittery beaded embroidery is a stunner!  It criss crosses in the back with adjustable straps to fit just right.  I also love how the beading extends to the wider waist band that nips you to emphasize an hourglass shape.  I might wear this one to our school Gala this year!

Floral Fit & Flare Dress

For a more playful option, this fun fit and flare dress is a winner.  It’s a nice, thicker weight fabric, so it’s got some structure to it.  Dress it up with heels and fun statement earrings and you cannot have a bad night out!

FIT: This dress is junior sizing, so, wearing size 3

I hope this gives you inspiration for your next holiday outing! Do you have a favorite?

    Where did you get the black lace halter dress. I love it. I can’t find it anywhere online, sold out. I’m only seeing plus size. I have a wedding coming up in September, I need a dress for.

      I searched too, looks like it’s sold out! I think I originally got mine at Macy’s.
