The Perfect Holiday Dress + Christmas in Denver

It's finally December and festivities have already begun! I've rounded up all of the Christmas events in the Denver area that I could find and made the ultimate Christmas calendar for all of my local girls. Scroll down to view the events and don't forget to take a look at this affordable dress, perfect for the holiday's!


Isn't this burgundy dress perfect for holiday events!? The rich burgundy color is gorgeous and perfect if you want to get into the Christmas spirit at your event! This satin wrap dress is not only beautiful, but it's also flattering! Wrap dresses are known to flatter your figure and with holiday parties, comes holiday sweets so a wrap dress like this one is perfect.


The pretty little details are my favorite part about this dress. The neckline isn't your average v-neck, but has a choker detail with a double button back. The sleeves are also unique! They billow out a bit, following the statement sleeve trend, but giving off a romantic feel. Where the wrap dress meets, there is a satin bow that cascades into a ruffle on the front of the dress!


The front may give off pretty and romantic vibes, but the back of the dress makes a statement! The back is open and takes this dress above and beyond. This exact dress is old, but the same brand has an almost identical dress in the same color (+ four more). Of course I wore my gold block heels with this outfit too, I told you they would be my shoe of the season! Shop this outfit below & don't forget to check out my list of events in the Denver area!


It's not December without Christmas events! I found the best events in Denver (and the surrounding areas) and I hope I can make it to as many as possible! Need more information? I gave you direct links to each event, so you can learn more!
