Christmas 2006: Cocktails and Formal Parties

So many people have also been asking about what they should wear to parties -not casual house parties, but the more formal cocktails and parties.

Checks and metalics are huge trends this year. Both dresses from Top Shop -I've tried the purple version of these dresses on, and it's such a fun dress.

Very 'american'-feel dresses, left one by BCBG and right one by ABS. The dress on the left feels a bit too prom-ish, but is undeniabely pretty.


Diane von Furstenburg of course makes loads of fabulous dresses. Wrap-dresses are very flattering, versatile, and not to mention very useful in the future too. For those who want to look more sexy, DvF also makes non-wrap-dresses like the strapless one on the right.

Cocktail dresses from Urban Outfitters. It's so hard to find dresses like these -cute, trendy, affordable and don't look cheap!

LOVE these dresses. Soooo pretty! Dresses by Miu Miu (left) and Derek Lam (right). With dresses as short as the Miu Miu one, wear tights underneath to keep warm and look lady-like.

Dresses by Top Shop. Don't be afraid to wear mini (although not too mini) dresses to parties (but not the most formal parties). Again, wearing tights is a good idea, and please, do wear underwear!

These two dresses are acceptable for quite formal parties and look fun! Who wants to look stuffy at a Christmas /New Year party? I love the satin and silk material because it makes the dress look so much classier and gorgeous. Dresses by Marc by Marc Jacobs (left) and Ya-Ya (right).

I hope this gives everyone some ideas of what to wear. I can't tell you exactly what to wear, but this should hopefuly inspire you! Put a shawl (may be or may not be fur) on, then you're set for a fun and gorgeous night!

I love the dresses - I actually have the black Marc Jacobs one. I wear even when I don't have a formal party to go to. I either wear a casual shirt underneath it or just wear a zip up sweatshirt or a blazer over it and I'm good to go.

Can you do a post suggesting shoes for the winter that are comfortable for walking around in (i.e. across campus, a day in the city) yet fashionable?

Ooh, love the second Top Shop dress. I love the whole plaid-meets-party-girl thing. Irony is so fun.

Each of these dresses was more beautiful then the next. I really liked the ones from Top Shop, though I truly did love them all.

Are these models from winter fashion season? Just New Year ideas? They are beautiful, but where else can I wear them?

If you'd like to get employment in your home town, then you'll often find that an independent and specialised local employment service might be more appropriate than the trainer's recruitment division, because they are much more inclined to be familiar with local employment needs.

This is particularly true of those computers that are portable. Yet, laptops and notebooks are the most likely to be taken by thieves or accessed by hackers. Don't run the risk of losing critical data stored on your laptop or notebook because of poor backup practices or of complete lack of backup procedures.
