One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is, not surprisingly, getting all dolled up for a good holiday party. It doesn't matter if that party takes place in a beautiful converted naval warehouse with ice sculptures and a skating rink (as my work's party this year did) or in a trashy karaoke dive bar (a holiday tradition). It only matters that a pretty dress, a bunch of friends, and lot of festive fun is involved. My party dresses this year have been mainly a parade of 1960s metallic brocade wonders, but if I were to dream up my ideal sartorial situations it would be these lovely getups. If only!
