December is arguably the biggest month for parties with Christmas, New Years, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and what have you.
For many of us (namely myself), spending an entire paycheck on a dress to wear only once, maybe twice, just isn't going to happen.
Don't stress: here are some much more affordable options.
The websites listed below have many holiday-appropriate dresses for beyond-affordable prices.
I've selected my favorites here, but please check out the sites yourselves to find the perfect dress that speaks to you (and your checkbook).
1. Jewel Flapper Dress by Twelve By Twelve (Forever 21's new women's couture line), $59.00, www.forever21.com/twelve
