What I love about November 1st is the feeling of officially ushering in the holiday season.  In this month of Thanksgiving, I am reminded of how thankful I am for Christmas. ;-)  It's truly my favorite holiday.  While Jesus is the reason for the season, I love how this time brings friends, family and strangers alike together to celebrate life together. 

If you have some upcoming events that call for a little cocktail dress wardrobe, this is a great place to start getting ideas for those nights at work parties, charity events, date nights, and even mommy daughter dates to the Nutcracker.

Also, sometimes we like to chat LIVE about these things on Facebook so I invite you to join the fun!


OK! So, for under $100 each, one or more of these will carry you through the season and beyond! High fives to that!

1. Classic Fit and Flare Dress

Up first is this pretty little lace fit and flare dress is gorgeous in this Evergreen color, but comes in 12 color options total at only $88.  It's a classic shape with a modern gorgeous lace pattern.

2. Lace Fit and Flare with Cap Sleeves

Another lacy option shown in a beautiful aubergine color (one of my FAVES), this fit and flare version has the slightest cap sleeve to it with subtle eyelash lace edging.  This dress is $98 and comes in 11 color options.

3. Tea Length Hi-Low Dress

If you're looking for something with a little more length and stylish flare, this Hi-Low Dress is a beautiful option that comes in red, navy, and black for only $82.  Pair it with strappy heels and some statement earrings and you're ready to celebrate!

4. Long Sleeved Lace Fit and Flare Dress

If you love the fit and flare style of dresses and the lacy touch, but longer sleeves, this dress is for you.  It comes in classic colors Oxblood and Black at $92.

5. Gorgeous Black Shift Dress with Fancy Collar

Also available in white, this beautiful black shift dress has a slight bell sleeves, forgiving waist line (indulge in those tasty treats stress free!), and gorgeous embellished collar. I love the longer sleeve, simple classic shape, and touch of glam.  This dress comes in at $99.

6. Scalloped Sequin Dress

If you have an upcoming holiday party that calls for some fun metallics, this scalloped sequin dress is the perfect fit.  Although the dress is lined, the longer sleeves are sheer, just fyi.  This is a great dress for the holiday season at only $45.

7. Red Strapless Lace Gown

Love at first sight with this gorgeous gown! With the bright red color, it's sure to be a show stopper! At $88, it is fully lined with a thigh high slit so if dancing's your thing, you can still bust some moves. ;-) 

8. Metallic Sequin Sheath Dress

This black and gold sequin dress is just $88 and will take you from girl's night out to your family gatherings and a night on the town. It's perfect for those of you that prefer a v-neck style and asymmetrical lines.

9. Off the Shoulder Red Dress

This dress is a simple and stunning choice with a bit of edge in the neckline.  It is $70 and features a back hidden zipper, wired neckline (no shifting!), and is fully lined.  The red is perfect for the holiday season and would look beautiful with a trending sparkly choker necklace.

10. Long Black Lace Gown

If you're looking for a more formal option at an affordable price, this gown (currently available for $60) is a beautiful option.  When looking for more affordable options on fancier dresses like this, lean toward items that have higher star ratings and great reviews!

11. Sea Blue One Shoulder Ruffle Ball Gown

Anything in this beautiful cobalt blue color is a winner in my book!  Add that gorgeous one shoulder ruffle detailing and this dress is a great option at only $49!  It's a nice step away from the classic black without going into the warmer red colors. 

12. Lace Strapless Dress in Forest Green

If you lean toward this beautiful green color, this strapless dress with lace detail is a great option and $99 (and currently 25% off with code OMGYES).  You can pair it with classic black or gold heels and accessories or gold bold with some color!

I hope this helps you ladies kick off some pre-party shopping and find the perfect fit for your needs!  I know this may seem like a lot, but I've tried to pair things down after going through literally hundreds of items!  That's the research loving part of me coming out. ;-)

***A "Must-Know" tip to when shopping Amazon Prime - read and share!

***the following post contains affiliate links. Items do not cost more if you choose to purchase them and I personally  thank you for supporting this blog in this way when you find something that helps you!

As someone who loves to share not just what I love and am wearing personally, but also great deals and styles I find out there for you amongst the mass of options, I HAD to share this must know tip when shopping Amazon Prime. ( membership is the and we use it for streaming video and music as well).

You see, our family loves the convenience of the free two-day shipping, free returns, items backed by Amazon, etc.  There are some listings out there that you should be aware of as a buyer though.

I made a video for you below so you can see what you need to watch out for when going into this holiday season of buying items for your family gatherings, work parties, gifts for friends and kids, etc.

When you expect something as a Prime owner within 2 days, and that turns into 1-2 weeks, that is sure to add more stress than you need for the holidays.

Let's keep the season as stress-free as possible, right ladies?!

I hope this helps you avoid any disasters not only this holiday season, but in general as an Amazon shopper!

If you've found this helpful, please share it with a friend!
