Christmas Party Dresses Part 3: Ruche

Today is part 3 of my 3 part mini-series on affordable holiday and Christmas party dresses. If you haven't yet, be sure to check out parts 1 and 2. This series has been so much fun for me as I love shopping for the perfect outfit for others and I'm kinda sad that it's drawing to a close. I hope you've all enjoyed the picks and please send me your outfit questions so I have an excuse to shop more!

For the series finale, I thought I'd feature an oldie-but-goodie in my fashion bookmarks folder. Ruche is an online boutique based out of California that's basically like an affordable Anthropologie. I really like the story behind this retailers as they come from similar backgrounds (technology) as me and I find it very inspiring how they worked hard at their side passion until they could make it their full passion. Plus, they just are so pinterest-y in their bio photos!

It was quite hard to pick just a few items for this dress round-up and I tried really hard to not pick anything typical, like sequins and lace, the latter being something I think I've featured enough in the previous parts! I hope you enjoy my picks and also a tip to my Canadian readers - Ruche offers $5.95 shipping and orders over $75 have free shipping!

By Candlelight Metallic maxi dress, $48.99

First up is this dramatic, floor-length, silver metallic dress. There's something so very reminiscent of Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface with this gown to me and that's kinda why I like it. Slinky, sexy yet relaxed, this dress is one hell of an attention-grabber. I would wear this only to parties with a formal dress code and only if you wish to make a statement. This would be perfect for a hotel or NYE party, don't you think?

Your Plus One Jacquard dress by Tulle, $74.99

If drama isn't really your thing, then try this silky jacquard dress on for size. Featuring vintage-esque cap sleeves, this simple sheath comes to life with its brilliant sapphire floral pattern and fitted waist. I think this dress would look stunning with some fun bejeweled pumps or huge drop earrings.

Enchanted Night embellished dress, $48.99

Moving right along with this vintage theme is our next dress. With its simple scoop neck and A-line skirt, this dress is straight out of Mad Men, but the black mixed with metallic gold and bronze threading is all modern. I love the little added touch of the jeweled collar as well.

Regency Baroque shift dress, $49.99

Last, but not least, is this baroque shift dress. This dress is ideal for the semi-formal party that involves a fancy restaurant and cocktails. You'll look sophisticated, yet fashion-forward with this ornate print in the simple perfection that is a black and white combo. The key to pulling this look off? Red lips and minimal jewelry.

So what was your favourite dress in this round and in the whole series?
