December Must Haves: Dress to Impress December

The Pirouette Dress from Anthropologie takes the top of our “must-haves” list. What reminds us a little bit of a fashion version of mercury glass, the dress adds a little diversity to the typical party dress. A mix of metallic color and a polished silhouette, this dress is definitely one that will shine. The Melusine Dress brings some fun and flare to the typical red holiday dress. Spice things up a bit with this eyelash lace dress and get ready to wow.
