This is a sponsored post in partnership with David’s Bridal.
If you’ve ever walked into a David’s Bridal, more than likely it’s because you were buying your wedding dress or you were part of someone else’s special day. My experience with them had me purchasing my own heavily beaded and lace wedding gown. But, I’m here to tell you they are so much more than bridal. I’m talking about holiday outfit goals guys!
We all know that when November rolls around, we all have holidays on the brain. This means cocktail parties, work & family gatherings, black tie events, winter formals, military balls, and we can’t forget about New Year’s Eve. I might be jumping a little bit ahead for some of you, but you know you’ve thought about it. Will you go long or short?
I will admit, as a young girl, I was never really a fan of lace and sparkle. Today, it’s a whole different story. Whenever the holiday’s hit, I’m all about it. Give me all of the sparkle please. Whether it’s glitter or sequins, the more the merrier. The little girl in me can’t believe it.
I kind of felt like a kid in a candy store when David’s Bridal approached me to help share their Holiday 2016 Collection. What would I choose? I mean, they have lots of plus size holiday dresses that cover a lot of my favorite holiday trends. Would I go with the classic little black dress, sparkle and shine, a pop of color, or maybe a floral brocade print?
After lots of going back and forth, I decided on this gorgeous Long All Over Glitter Lace Mermaid Dress in Merlot. Not what I would normally choose, but that’s why I went with it. I wanted something that would definitely stand out this holiday season. And oh my…it’s so beautiful and can I say…comfortable? I can’t get over how subtle the sparkle is and the color is striking. It fits amazingly true to size too—I’m wearing a size 16.
