With the holiday party season in full swing, gatherings with friends, family, and co-workers are on the agenda. (And let's not forget New Year's Eve soirées.) There's always the big question of what to wear. Looking to find the perfect frock for each occasion? We gathered up 125 of our favorite party dresses in our latest Shop-A-Matic. We got into the festive spirit and hunted down sparkly minidresses perfect for ringing in the New Year. If the plans include quality family time, there's an array of polished little black dresses that are sure to impress the family. Looking to stand out from the pack?
