Who doesn’t love a pretty little trifle to adorn yourself, a party table or your home, especially during this festive holiday season? Here are my picks to doll up on a tight budget.

Continuing my focus from yesterday’s blog on holiday shoes, here are my picks for the best holiday dresses featuring interesting details.

My favorite Los Angeles fashion designer, ROBERT RODRIGUEZ,  really knows how to create a beautifully detailed garment.  Take a look at this fabulous teal one shoulder dress with feather detail at the waist.  This silhouette is flattering for all figure types and most excellent for curvy gals.  Take note of how this is dress is styled with black leather gloves, lace stockings and black booties making this look rock.  Personally, I’d choose a big scale choker necklace with a reflective or sparkly quality like rhinestones, or lucite with lots of silver chain to complete this look for a holiday party.

VALENTINO’s nude dress with black lace details is stunning.

NANETTE LEPORE has a platinum colored cowl neck dress richly embroidered with tribal detailing.

L.A.M.B. has a cleverly detailed ponte knit dress featuring a collar and puffed sleeves of leather.  I love the contrast of the smooth leather against the textured knit.
