WhatLauraWore: Great Gatsby Inspired Christmas Party Dress

When you’re off to a Christmas party this year, there is only one piece of advice that I can give you and that’s to go glam or go home.  Christmas is the one time of the year where everyone wants to put there glad rags on and head out on the town.  Whether you’re off to a work party or a family gathering, I’d suggest dressing to impress- that why you’ll look as well as feel gorgeous.

Short Beaded Dress from Marisota*

The dress I’m wearing here is Short Beaded Dress from Marisota and it is the epitome of Christmas glam as it gives a classic little black dress a Great Gatsby feel with baroque style gold beading on the bust.  The cut of the dress is beautiful as it has a scoop neck that reveals just the right amount of subtle yet sexy cleavage.  It is fully lined down to just above the knee where the dress ends and it has a concealed zip for a comfortable fit.  The dress pulls you in under the bust and ties at the back, creating a gorgeous silhouette.

Also available in teal for fans of a more colourful look, the Short Beaded Dress looks great on its own or worn with a shrug.  There is a matching beaded shrug available here or you could wear it with a plain black one like I have.  For accessories, I’d suggest keeping it chic with black heels and a clutch in order to let the dress make the statement.  What do you think?
