Christmas Party Dress

Hey everyone and happy Friday!! I know it's kinda late but I was out shopping all morning since the stores are full of special deals right now and the shopaholic in me isn't able to pass up a good sale. LOL. And since it's Christmas time I can always gift any regretted purchases to someone on my list...or maybe someone who otherwise wouldn't get anything ;) So, are you excited that the weekend is finally here?? I know I sure am. I have so much to do before everyone comes over for my bonfire/Christmas party tomorrow night, but I wanted to share with you my dress from this years company holiday party as promised. So, what dress did I end up wearing and where can you snag one for yourself? 

The Dress
I spotted this gorgeous dress completely by accident while shopping at Walmart with my mom a few weeks back. Yes you read that right...I said WALMART!! I couldn't believe such a beautiful dress was sold there so I immediately started thinking that there must be something wrong with it. I thought maybe it was cheaply made or not as pretty on as it was on the hanger but, I'm happy to say I was wrong on both assumptions. The material is thick like a sweater but silky and hugs in just the right places and I fell in love with the fold over collar and how pretty the gold glitter and zippers look against such a vibrant red color. This dress is so pretty on and is very comfortable. The only downside is you have to be careful which underwear you decide to wear. I originally put on some lacy ones and you could actually see the lace through the dress so I switched to no-show panties and they were perfect :) I can't really complain though since the dress was very reasonably priced and I got a lot of compliments the night of the party! This would make the perfect holiday party dress for any event you have coming up and at less than $10 (it's on sale right now for $7.50) it won't break the bank. So, how did I end up styling this beauty and how can you change it up to match your style? 

My Style
Since this dress is such a bright vibrant shade of red I knew I didn't want to wear black shoes with it (even though the model on the website is wearing black heels LOL) so I decided to stick with a neutral shade. I originally wanted to wear plain nude heels, but then I remembered I had these awesome leopard print cuties that I got from L'Patricia a few years back and I knew they were the ones to wear with this dress. I wasn't sure if the leopard print would look good with red at first, but when I tried them on I was very happy with the look and feel of the whole outfit. Add some adorable gold earrings and a gold purse from Burke's Outlet and voila...perfect Christmas party outfit :) If you aren't really feeling the leopard print then you can always opt for the plain nude heels or go with a gorgeous gold glitter pair. If heels aren't your thing you can wear some cute flats instead. I wouldn't wear red shoes with this dress unless you can find the exact shade of red. You don't want your reds clashing with each other ;) I think even a cute pair of boots or booties might look quite nice as well.

Isn't this dress gorgeous? Do you like the leopard print heels with them? How would you style this dress differently? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your friends who would love this dress as much as I do. I hope you have an amazing weekend and happy shopping :)
