    Default Anyone want to help me find a holiday dress?

    I need a dressy cocktail dress for the holiday season. I have no idea what I want and am turning to you all for help.

    I'd like to spend no more than $200 but if someone finds something that turns out to be a dream dress, I would cave and go higher.

    Requirements:
    Not black. I like color. I've actually been imagining a peacock color so extra points for that, but I'm open to most colors.
    Don't care about length and anything from mini-to floor length will work.
    I am fairly busty so I need something with support and/or that I can wear a bra with.
    Not strapless.
    Not completely straight as my hips are too lumpy to look good in a long, straight dress.
    I probably need a 10, depending on cut.


    As for my body type, as I mentioned, I am chesty and hippy with a (relatively) small waist so I need something that will work for an very hourglass girl.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. TIA!!

    I'll start with your color preference--some peacock/blue/green options, all from Nordies. Go to www.nordstroms.com and search the special occasion dresses--so many cute choices!

    Nordstrom has a good selection, and most of them are under $200. I saw a couple that were a peacock blue as well.

    Why have I never shopped online at Nordstoms before?!?! That website is great. I love the feature that allows yu to search by body type!

    Loving this, at only $138



    Off to look around some more....thanks!!!

    OK, it's very "holiday" and you probably wouldn't want it for a year round cocktail dress, but I saw this in the Coldwater Creek catalog and wished we had some semi-formal holiday parties to go to so I could justify buying it.

    I've been eyeing this dress (only comes in xs-l but has a built in bra):

    You can always check out Ann Taylor and find the colors you like and mix and match a tie. Very cute styles:



    I would also check out Macy's and Dillards.
