Red Lace by the Fire

Nothing says Merry Christmas better than a beautiful red lace dress. This pretty wrap style is always popular but the romantic puffed sleeves make things new and  different. This bolder shoulder is part of that throwback to the 80’s we’re seeing in fashion at the moment.  It’s Dynasty all over again, but in a more gentle way.

Here’s a dress that is as fancy as any Christmas ornament on your tree. This beautifully crafted black and nude lace dress is perfect for Christmas, New Year’s Eve, or any other special occasion after that.  I love the intricate geometric pattern, romantic scalloped hem, and chic A-line shape that makes it easy to wear.

Teal Time! 

What other color can you wear this holiday season to look festive and fun? Teal is a universal shade that looks great on everyone.

This teal, lace-overlay sheath dress is a top seller because of its simple, figure-flattering cut. But the simplicity of this dress ends there. With scalloped trim and geometric embroidered lace, this intricate lace dress goes over and above defining details.

Green is a classic holiday color that lights up a room. This sophisticated lace sheath dress in Evergreen has a sexy cutout neckline that frames your face and makes you look radiant. Wear it with luxurious,  metallic accessories like these shiny block heel evening sandals for a party-perfect look.

A delicate, sheer neckline gives this metallic lace sheath dress a red carpet look and feel.  This dress is as fabulous as any dress you’d see a Hollywood star wearing. Sparkling floral lace makes this dress sizzle!




A Touch of Lace

Dressing sexy is about revealing a little rather than a lot, and this pretty black lace shift dress is a good example. It features a mock turtleneck and long sleeves with blocks of lovely Italian lace, but the shorter length keeps this dress looking modern and youthful

    1. Hi Kathryn, Yes, pants can get very dull, but a dress, well, a dress, can make you feel feminine and uplifted. Lace has been around for a few seasons and is still super popular. I love these styles. They make a statement but in a gentle way. Cheers, Deborah

  1. These dresses are gorgeous. But so few with sleeves! It is winter here, and I can’t help but think this article and pictures are just for those in warmer climates. Why? What are we cold weather girls supposed to do? Plus, even if I were living in Fla year round, I would like some sleeves to cover the unattractive parts of my upper arms. And I have a feeling I am not alone in this.

    1. Hi Lisa,
      These dresses can be worn all year, but you have to have a good coat and shawl to add. However, you have a good point about keeping the arms a little more covered, and we will try to find more dresses with more fabric… I do understand that many women have issues with their constituents.
      Thanks for writing in.

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
