If I Were A Rich (Wo)Man: Christmas Party Dresses

A Wishlist of Festive Frocks

So, this was supposed to be Friday's wishlist. Again, I'm very late, sorry. I'll get back to normal after Christmas.

This week I'm drooling over a selection of dresses that are ideal for the Christmas season.

The Pencil Dress

Miss Selfridge Beaded Lace Pencil Dress John Lewis

I love this Miss Selfridge Beaded Lace Pencil Dress from John Lewis; it's elegant but also ethereal, I'd feel like a snow queen wearing it. It's a very pale shade of purple and features flower embellishments. The silhouette has a vintage look yet it will always be fresh.

Price: £195

The Little Black Dress

Black Sunray Embellished T-Shirt Dress

Every woman needs a little black dress and this Sunray Embellished T-shirt Dress from Asos adds a boho twist to a classic style. It's got enough sparkle for the Christmas office party or New Year's Eve do, but it also has a relaxed feel. Plus, it's got a flattering cut that will hide a tummy that's had one too many mince pies.

I particularly love the open back and ribbon tie on this dress.

The Red Dress

Red Lace Agnes Dress by Joseph

Red is a bold and sexy colour, plus it's associated with Christmas, which means that this Agnes Lace Dress by Joseph is ideal for the festive season. The all-over lace is very pretty and the dress has a fit and flare style, which is flattering on any figure. However, it is the most expensive on my list.

Price: £695

The Flapper Dress

Flapper Style Nude Sequin Dress from Joy

A 20s style dress always has a feeling of frivolity and freedom that flapper girls embodied. That's why a flapper dress is always a great choice around the fun festive season. This Frock and Frill Diamond Sequin Dress from Joy comes in a lovely nude shade and features sparkle and a chiffon skirt. It also has a great cut-out at the back.

The Quirky Dress

Purple Zandra Rhodes Pencil Dress from People Tree

This fun and colourful dress is part of the collection that Zandra Rhodes produced for People Tree this year. The Purple Zandra Rhodes Pencil Dress does not have the traditional sparkles that seem to be obligatory on Christmas dresses. Nor is it red, black or gold, which seem to be the main shades you see at Christmas parties, but that's why I like it. The bold purple will make a statement on New Year's Eve and the shell print will remind you of the far off summer. Teamed with black tights and courts, this would make a great festive outfit.

Price: £150

That's all folks.

Happy Christmas Eve and have a great Christmas Day and New Year.
