One of the most important parts of the holidays is figuring out what to wear. Well, according to Haute Talk it is. It’s always hard to pick out the perfect dress to wear to a holiday party, especially when you have so many other things to think about! End-of-year work, maybe finals, or even just all that holiday shopping? Thank goodness it’s Etsy Wednesday, and this week we’ve chosen the best holiday dresses. The best part is that every dress here is under $150. There is no doubt that you will be able to afford that extra cocktail (or two) now…
