Ah, I don't think my comment save! I really love these dress picks Sam sweetie. I love wearing sparkly pieces this time of year. If I were to pick my favourites here, it would be the red high neck dress and the cream high neck dress, with the feathers. I guess I'm loving the high neck style :D

Morning Sam! Well, if I can I would pick all these gorgeous party dresses, they are all marvelous and perfect for the holiday season! But I always think that sequins, red and gold win, I wont be afraid to experiment something with feathers, especially the first feathered powder pink dress you featured is sooo nice! But since I am more classic, I take the Dorothy Perkins sequins dress in the first set, the River Island lred lace dress in the second set and the Topshop one in the 4th set, and I'm fine!:) Kisses dear, have a lovely day! xo

How can I possibly pick only one? :D No but honestly, first of all I love anything with feathers thus these dresses are great. Then it was love at first sight with this French Connection dress in the first set *.* And the Miss Selfridge dress in the Sugar Coated set reminds me of my childhood as I had a ballet dancer Barbie who wore a very similar dress which I used to love :D

Maja K said...

What a wide selection of party dresses. I love them all! I would wear them all, how is it possible to just pick one to wear on a New Year's Eve? ;) Oh, I see the other have been asking themselves the same question, hehe. I would, however, leave slip dresses out and wear them at home ;) xx
