By  | 

A couple of readers have written in to ask for some recommendations on affordable dresses for New Years. So here are a few picks for your consideration.

Kristin Davis Collection Dress at Belk
This flattering scoop blue dress features a necklines adorned with jewels and a bow tie waist. This lovely dress is subtly shimmering. I’ve always liked this collection and now alot of it is on clearance at fantastic prices.

HauteLook’s BCBG Blowout Sale
BCBG is the featured Blowout Sale on the HauteLook site today. As you can see from the picture above, some gorgeous dresses are featured. This is an online sale, so you won’t get it in time for New Year’s but, the prices are deeply discounted and one of these would be classic for your 2009 events. I particularly love the Lilac dress on the left side. Gilt Groupe also has some special stuff on their sale racks today that you may wish to check out.

Norma Kamali’s shirred jersey dress in Black at Walmart: $20.00
The drape of this one is fantastic and very figure flattering. For $20.00, you really can’t go wrong.

Loehmann’s also still has many beautiful, affordable holiday dresses from top designers in their Back Room and the rest of the store. Check your local store for selection. Today is the continuation of their after Holiday Sale offering an extra 40% off* plus an extra 10% off all clearance merchandise storewide!

The Target Holiday Collection dresses are still available in store and offered in sizes XS to XXL.

And finally, don’t forget the cute party dresses from the Gap that I covered last week. Many are still available and best of all on sale.
