5 dresses for New Years Eve

Sorry for my absence. It's so difficult having no camera and no laptop of my own! I cannot wait to get my new camera for Christmas.

In the meantime I have been looking for a dress to wear on New Years Eve. I will probably be at work til 9 or 10 and then have to quickly get changed and drive to the party I'm going to! Hectic but exciting.

I have been sticking dresses onto Pinterest as I find them and I've realised they are all similar colours! A step away from automatically going for black dresses- a bit of colour in the gloomy winter.

1. Oasis
I think this dress probably isn't even available anymore- they don't have many sizes left online and I can't find it in-store. This suggests that if I was to wear it on a night out, so would 200 other girls. Never the less I think it's gorgeous and I'd like to find something similar.

2. Topshop

I fell in love with the black version of this cute velvet dress but as I said, I'm trying to move away from black party dresses! There's a purple one too, but I think the maroon is sufficiently festive.

3. Dorothy Perkins

This dress is quite simple, but so elegant. I love the skinny gold belt, plus it's velvet again, always a winner in my eyes.

4. Dorothy Perkins (again)

I never usually buy anything from Dotty P's and yet here are two dresses in one wishlist. This dress is really unique, but I can't decide whether it's a bit too 'day time' for New Years Eve. But I love the bold colour panels.

5. Modcloth
I have never ordered from Modcloth before, but I've fallen in love with this pretty number. I probably won't end up getting it as I'm unsure about sizing- wish they were UK based so shipping wouldn't be such a hassle! Has anyone ordered from Modcloth and how do you find the sizing? I usually take a UK 10- would that be a medium?

I hope everyone is having a lovely December and getting on with their Christmas shopping. Thanks for reading, I'll be back soon!

I love all of these dresses they are stunning. I would love to wear any of them. It is a hard choice but my favourite is the velvet Topshop dress because it is velvet and I am in love with anything velvet. I have a velvet Topshop dress and it is very special to me.
