    That first dress is gorgeous!!! I’d say pair it with the leopard shoes if you want to be sexy, though it might be a little over the top depending on what other people wear at this party. Or maybe some red pumps would fit the holiday theme!

    Leopard print if you are going with a block coloured dress, or a block colour shoe if you are going with a print dress!

    @so_said_ellie: Can I just say that I love both dresses and I would wear either of them to a Christmas party.  You could definetely wear the honey coloured shoes with the print dress IMO and the leopard ones work great with the purple (black).  I think the leopard shoes would really add a kick to the purple (black) dress and all you would have to do is add some accessories and you’re done!  Love both and would wear both combinations you suggested ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would wear the black dress to the party– I’m having a similar problem where I love my printed/fun outfits, but my SO’s work party is too fancy.  Save the horsies for a date!

    And I definitely vote leopard print– especially since you mentioned that the other girls dress like they are clubbing.  You are going to be so sassy and cute!

    I like both outfits- but the black with leopard shoes i think speaks more confidence, and more dressy for a party ( specially if they are into the club scene) ..and then you can have your SO take you out to dinner and wear the horse with the honey ๐Ÿ™‚

    I say first dress with honey shoes. If this is your first time going to your SO’s work party you don’t want anything over the top. Go simple and classic. First impressions are important and whether we believe it or not SO of employees are important with first impressions.

    Trust me, we have a wife of a co-worker who ALWAYS comes to office parties over the top and loud and you don’t want the reputation of being “that SO”.

    Also are you planning on wearing tights underneath the dress?

    ETA: But I do like the leopard shoes more! If you go honey you can go with fun tights if you go leopard go with simple tights. By The Way how is the quality of ASOS? They have so much cute stuff and shipping is only $6 to the States.

    Ohhh I just read your post that the other girls dress like they go clubbing. In that case go leopard. hehe.

    When you say you are 3x the size of the model i’m just concerned the first dress might emphasize waist because of were the middle sits and the way the skirt poofs.

    I am sure you are beautiful but if you are a little uncomfortable with your size I recommend you finding a short baby doll dress like those in an “A” line. just below the breasts. It is very flattering. and get it in a material that pulls straight down. no flare or poofy. 

    I do like the 2nd choice. I think it’s very trendy looking and would look great with the honey shoes. some black tights to enlongate the legs and add to the slimmer side with a big gold braclet.  : )

    I am so opinionated I know!!!!  I love fashion and modeled 100 years ago!!  

    Good luck, go flaunt your stuff and your man!!!  Laughing

    Everything is so cute, you have great taste!

    I also voted for the purple (black) dress and leopard shoes – maybe with some black tights and cute jewelry?

    But you also can’t go wrong with the printed dress too. I think whatever you choose to wear, it will look great!
