As the holidays approach, your social calendar will no doubt begin to fill up with parties, office events, friend get-togethers and intimate dinner dates. For these occasions, the usual stylish black dress will work fine, but you might want to add a festive look and a splash of color with a red holiday cocktail dress. There are a variety of styles to choose from, including long or short dresses along with strapless or over-the-shoulder styles.

If you’re looking to wow the crowd at a cocktail party or night of clubbing, you might want to skip on the usual tight and skimpy black dress and go for a shiny silver mini dress. The color and fit will surely have you fending off potential suitors as you visit your favorite watering holes. Just make sure that you feel comfortable wearing a tight mini dress out and about as they leave little to the imagination and tend to show off every bump and curve your body has to offer.

Celebrating the wedding of your daughter is a momentous affair with all kinds of small things that can go wrong. As mother of the bride, make sure your dress is not one of them. In fact, you may want to have two dresses for the occasion. For the service, a bright colored dress would fit nicely with with what the bride is wearing. Then, at the reception, a Navy or dark colored dress would work well for the evening’s festivities. And if for some reason you can’t wear one dress or the other, at least you have a second option.

In the summer, you can not only look great, but also feel great in a long white summer dress. Ideally, the fabric the dress is made of should be light in weight, without being see-through. The light weight gives you that feeling of freshness and freedom that we associate with lazy summer days in the garden or at the beach.

The beauty and innocence of a baby girl at her baptism is an image that will last in any proud parent’s mind forever. To share those memories however, you should consider hiring a professional child photographer to take high quality photos of your baby girl in a white satin baptism dress and bonnet. Of course, you can have friends or family members take pictures on their own, but they might miss out on the finer details that a professional photographer wouldn’t miss. The additional expense would be worth it down the road.
