Saw Cinderella in a party dress.

Sure it's December, and sure I'm counting the days until my pre-Christmas paycheque, but that's because I've been buying gifts for other people - not for me! I know, right, I'm not the person I thought I was either.

So for all the parties and dos coming up, I'm mostly planning to wear clothes I already own. For my work Christmas do, it's a gorgeous Warehouse dress I got in the sale two years ago (I'm sure you'll see it on here soon!) and for New Years, probably the sparkly New Look dress I picked up a few months back. But my workplace and my Twitter timeline is full of people trying to find outfits to wear for the party season, and I keep finding myself called into action. My dress radar is especially active at this time of year. (boop boop boop)

Anyway, I was asked to do a bit of a post on the best party dresses out there and as this meant a night of exploring the internet for dresses... um, yeah, I was up for that. And then I got carried away. So I present to you... THE 57 BEST PARTY DRESSES OUT THERE!!
