Once the holiday season is in full swing, it's not terribly uncommon to see sequined, shimmery and/or metallic everything, everywhere. And while I'm fully here for a cute glittery eye-shadow compact situation, pulling it off in dress form? It's just not really my style. So in my quest to find the perfect dress for holiday party season, I headed directly to Reformation — and they did not let me down. (When do they ever?) 

Their Courtney dress balances a sexy V-neck and short hemline with slightly more prim wrist-length sleeves, but it was the print that really made me fall in love. The black crêpe fabric features a smattering of tiny gold stars, which have always been my power symbol (my last name means "star river" in Japanese). It's whimsical, pretty — and, with the right accessories — totally festive enough to wear to ring in the New Year.
