Deck the Halls.


I have a thing for Parker dresses.  Especially the beaded ones.  Every year, it seems, I end up getting one.  {Refer to this post from last year!}  Now I have a little collection of them and just love them so much.  I can’t help myself.  The cut, the colors, the ornate detailing… a home run.  For dinner I’ll layer on a little black blazer (like my Becky Jacket) and then for dancing after just the dress.

This particular dress is going to be my New Years Eve dress, though I may be enlisting it for a holiday party or two this weekend.

    Parker never fails when it comes to a sparkly dress. Every year they have one or two in their line-up that I swoon over! This is the perfect Holiday party dress.

    Ahh, I love Parker dresses too! Used to work in the same building as them so I ALWAYS hit up their sample sale, I have 3 or 4 beaded ones now and a beaded jacket, too. Love how elegant they are and they’re so much fun!!

    OMG! I love that dress. I always love Parker but I am 5’9″ and 38 years old and they all seem to short for me. If you have any influence with them, please request that they make their dresses in “tall” for people like me. I would be a lifelong customer!

      Haha, I know. I am 5’7 and a half and 32 and felt like I was pushing it a little in this one! Just a few more inches would be amazing!!!!

    Sparkle wins every time — and this dress is absolutely GORGEOUS! I don’t have any particularly fancy plans this holiday season, but I find myself wanting to add sequins and sparkle anyway :)

    xo, Liz
