One of my favorite things about Fall/Winter is the parties.

So.many.parties. You get to shop for dresses for the rest of the year and who doesn’t love dress shopping?

Whether it is black tie, cocktail, a sweater dress, or something even more formal, Nordstrom has you covered this holiday season!

Velvet Holiday Dress:

They have such a wide array of dresses, but this specific velvet holiday dress caught my eye. I mean the flowers on the dress are ACTUALLY velvet!! It is so eye catching and fun! I have been finding so many great BB Dakota dress on Nordstrom lately and this one did not disappoint.

A velvet holiday dress will really make you stick out and you are sure to get tons of compliments! Wear it to a cocktail party or on Thanksgiving. It is perfect for any event or occasion!

I paired this velvet shift with some over the knee boots. OTK boots realllllly elongate your legs, especially ones that cling to your thigh like Stuart Weitzman boots do!!

If you are looking for a dress to wear to a holiday party, then scroll below to see my style guide of holiday dresses! I put the prices next to some of dresses so you can make sure to stay in budget. This season is a marathon, not a sprint guys!
