Getting dressed doesn’t have to be complicated. It can simply be – The Power of 3!
A dress, a necklace and a pair of shoes. Okay, okay, maybe you need a sweater or a jacket, and maybe you are a scarf girl – but seriously, what’s easier than a dress?

The problem is that most women don’t shop for dresses until an occasion shows up on their calendar and they realize their boring black work pants just aren’t going to cut it on the dance floor!

My advice? You should be shopping for dresses all year long! Why don’t you? Maybe it is the shoe or hosiery thing? Come on – you can search shoes by the COMFORTABLE category on Zappos and you can go without hosiery if you’ve got good gams or you can buy toe-less hosiery. Yes, that is a thing – or rather a thong thing – a toe thong thing that is!

Admit it, you feel prettier in a dress…you feel feminine…and you simply feel…well…dressed up! Remember dressing up? Time to do it again. Bring out the inner girl and let her dress up and party like she used to.

Here are a few options in 3 categories – sheath dresses, fit and flare dresses and midi dresses. All work appropriate and party appropriate because it’s all in the accessories. So be sure to shop shoes and necklaces while you are perusing the dresses so you can party in style!
