If you can never go wrong with a little black dress, then the little lace dress is right behind it.  I feel like it’s the LBD’s more interesting relative.  This sheer black lace dress I’m wearing is an excellent example of that.  It’s pretty, girly, and a little bit sexy.  And wouldn’t this dress be great to wear to an office party?sheer black lace dress, holiday dressesThat’s right, you have to start planning for the holidays!

This weekend I noticed that my usual Starbucks cup had been replaced with a more festive cup.  And when their holiday cup shows up I know that Christmas commercials aren’t far behind.  But it seems too soon to me!  I’m one of those people who refuses to put up my decorations until AFTER Thanksgiving.  Are you like that too?  I just want to take my time and celebrate each holiday… without rushing into the next one.dresses for the holidays, sheer black lace dressAnd why do I bring this up?  

Because I know soon we’ll all be asking ourselves what to wear to an office Christmas party?  Well don’t worry because this dress will do the trick.  It’s PERECT for a friendsgiving, Christmas party, or an holiday event.  I paired it with my trusty leather jacket but it would also be cute with really any kind of black jacket.  (Especially a blazer.)  I also like the idea of wearing a black sweater over it so that it looks like a lace skirt.  Wouldn’t that be cute?sheer black lace dress, Gucci Marmont black medium bagsheer black lace dress, allyson in wonderland
