It’s the season of holiday parties with family, friends and coworkers, and the one thing you’ll be thinking about the most (besides the silly white elephant gift you’ll be bringing) is what you’re going to wear. It can be tricky to pick an outfit if you’re not sure what’s appropriate or how dressed up you’d like to be, so let us do all the planning for you.

A couple of our newest arrivals are some gorgeous dresses from Stephanie D. Couture. Stephanie is a Portland designer who’s been very successful creating beautiful wedding gowns and is now offering a Spring 2012 line that includes ready-to-wear jersey dresses for day-to-night as well as cocktail dresses for special occasions.

The Flora Dress (for $174) would be a great New Years Eve dress. It has lots of options for accessorizing but we went with Special Jewelry and the Melie Bianco Riley Envelope Clutch. It would also look fabulous with gold jewelry and some red heels. Please call the shop directly for sizing on the dress.

How gorgeous is the back of this dress with the playful straps?

Here is the video of how we styled it!
