The holidays are here and with it comes office parties, gatherings with family and friends at home, holiday dinners and of course ending the year with New Years Eve bashes. It’s crunch time to find the perfect holiday dresses at affordable prices and I’m here to help. I’m actually hunting for the perfect New Years Eve dress and I’ve come across some incredible dresses online during my search, most of which have super fast shipping. So I’ve put together this blog post outlining my Top 5 Places to Shop for Holiday Dresses and the dresses I’d love from each site below. But before you delve into it, don’t forget to check out the Something By Sonjia x Monroe Steele Noir Collection for chic little black dresses with an elegant twist! The Jet CutOut Maxi Dress and the Onyx Side Slit Midi Dress are wonderful holiday dresses with stretch so you can eat and dance the night away while looking incredibly chic. Use Code: THANK YOU at for free shopping too! Now let’s get into some of my favorite dresses for every special occasion this holiday season. 


Black is always in and if you’re looking to turn heads this holiday season and feel comfortable we have 2 dresses under $180 that will be timeless pieces in your wardrobes that come in sizes XS-3XL. If you are a midi dress kinda girl, go for the Onyx Midi Dress. It’s a super stretchy ribbed knit with exposed seams and a side slit. It also comes with a thick belt with Chucky gold buckle. Then we have the Jet Cutout Maxi Dress that comes with a belt with 2 black denim cargo pockets. This is one of our best sellers and will help you make a sophisticated statement for all your holiday parties. Oh and yes, you can dance in both of these pieces. Check out more of the collection here in this YouTube Video.


The selection as ASOS is always impeccable and the shipping is quick. When I’m in a bind and need a last minute show stopping dress, ASOS is always my first choice. I especially love the ASOS Edition and Luxe Label Dresses. From sequins, to satin and feathers, they have something for everyone and they also carry a vast Plus Size options as well.

KAREN MILLEN (Use Code EXTRA20 for 20% Off Your Order)

I love shopping at Karen Millen for dresses because they always have such a wide array of choices and they are always running a promotional sale for additional savings. Most of my favorites are under $150 after using their special coupon code. I already have this dress and this dress on the way to me.

MICHAEL KORS (25% Off Everything Sale)

I’ve been working with Michael Kors for 2 years, showing you all the best of the best that they have to offer and I always head straight for their dresses. Michael Kors has amazing quality and they always have sales during the holiday season. I personally own this dress, this dress and this dress and they have gotten me through all the NYC and Miami events that I attend during the holidays. They are all on sale too. Shipping is super fast as well so if you need a dress within a week, make a move for Michael Kors.

MATCHES FASHION up to 60% Off Sale

Matches is one of my favorites for designer pieces. The shipping is super quick and I love that they carry a ton of exclusive brands like Raey. Raey is my go-to for chic tailored basics that make up my wardrobe. But their dress selection is massive and there’s something for every occasion. Self-Portrait is one of my go-to brands for occasion dresses and Matches has ton of them currently deeply discounted. I’d go for this sparkly number or this off the shoulder maxi dress.

MYTHERESA (up to 65% Off Sale)

I’ve been working with MyTheresa all year and I’ve so enjoyed all of their amazing designer offerings. Some of my most prized pieces in my wardrobe came from MyTheresa and when it comes to designer dresses on sale, she is THAT GIRL. If you’re looking to drop a little extra coin for a designer dress, MyTheresa’s up to 65% off sale has exactly what you’re looking for and probably more! From Tom Ford, to Alex Perry and even Balmain, all of the luxury dresses are currently on sale.

THE OUTNET Up to 60% Off Sale

The Outnet is another one of my secret spots for shopping for designer pieces on sale. They have such a huge selection of sequin dresses and maxi satin dresses. They usually stock up on past seasons favorites that have manage to sell out everywhere else. I also love their selection of Herve Leger Dresses. I also find that The Outlet has more sophisticated dresses from brands like Oscar De La Renta.


I always find unique pieces at & Other Stories and the only bad thing about shopping there is that all the good things sell out immediately. So my tip for & Other Stories is to check daily for the new drops so that you can get the good stuff before it’s gone forever. The quality is amazing and little known fact is that they are owned by H&M! It’s always the quality for me at & Other Stories.

Make sure to bookmark this post so when you’re ready to buy that special occasion dress this holiday season you can find it with ease. Many of these places are having incredible sales right now too, so now is the time to find beautiful dresses that will get you through the holiday season all the way to Valentines Day.

    Heeeey beautiful!! I have to say that you have introduced me to a world that I always knew existed, but always felt was unattainable. Just by what I was told growing up. I love that you show us the highs and the lows of fashion and lifestyle. You always stay true to your NC roots but you’ve taken the bull (pun intended) by the horns and elevated her in ways that are far beyond your dreams. I truly applaud and appreciate you in every way “Roe”, and I’m so glad to have a YOUTUBE niece that’s out here killing the game!!!!
