Hello again everyone! I know it’s only mid November, but it’s time to start thinking about all those holiday parties we’re going to be attending. If you are anything like me, dress shopping is pure hell. Luckily, stores and designers are begining to realize that plus sized ladies are not all over 50. This season I have found many cute holiday dresses that should be just right for wowing the crowds. Here are a few of my favorites so far!
(From left to right)
1. Purple Strapless and Belted.
It’s always refreshing to see colors other than red, green, and black during the holiday season. This beautiful purple number will lift your spirits! It’s just the right amount of sexy without being trashy. However, I wouldn’t wear this sexy little number to a family party without a nice little shrug or jacket over it..
Accessorize with: Black Suede Heels, Lace Clutch, Sparkly Jewlery, A Sassy Attitude.

2. Girly Lace Dress.
This isn’t your typical little black dress. It’s a convertible little black lace dress. This adorable A-Line dress can be worn strapless or with the straps as shown. It falls just to the knees, making it the very perfect length. And with a cute sparkly belt, how could you go wrong?
