So deliciously late-70s. Glittery and glam yet still sexy and seductive without showing too-too much (yes, it's short, but this would look perfect with black tights.)
($925, See By Chloe, Net-a-porter.com)I like this, but is it a little too obviously like "Hey! Look at me! I'm doing the jeweled dress trend!"?
Square sequins = manna from heaven. Though for nearly a grand, they better have been handsewn by elves.
($418, Petro Zillia, ShopPetroZillia.com)Same thing? The paper bag waist might not be necessary, but it is helpful if you're hiding a fetus... or a food baby.
($300, Dallin Chase, Blaec.com)Way chiller. And it looked adorbs on J.Lo:

A nice way to work the metallic trend without going too overboard. This piece still has a sorta folksy feel to it. Yay!
($660, Abaete, Bergdorf Goodman)
Or you could go TOTALLY overboard with this amazingly fun Abaete tank dress covered in paillettes. I know I would.

Also a beautiful holiday piece -- a healthy alternative to the I'm-not-wearing-a-dress-so-I'm-wearing-a-sparkly-top-and-black-pants look.
($348, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Bergdorf Goodman)Perfect perfect perfect holiday dress. Love the contrast of the elegant eggplant and the more bright and festive sash. Yay!
($450, Abaete, Saks Fifth Avenue)
Absolutely stunning. Soooo Grecian goddess-chic. Though even a Grecian goddess might not be able to rock this very slim-lookin' number. Hm. Best left on the racks and to you rail-thin 55378008 chicks out there.
($587, Viktor & Rolf, Net-a-porter.com)Oh mah stars. I freaking LOVE this. It's like Knots Landing goes to Colette. Want want want!
