Long or short evening dress?

So I'm really curious...what's everybody wearing to your more glamorous Holiday parties, be it from work or from your social network? Since my company isn't doing a christmas party this year, which usually is my most dressed-up party of the year, I don't exactly have to go all out to my other less dressy parties. But it seems that more and more women are opting for the floor-length gown instead of short cocktail dresses this year according to Toronto Star, Grand slam glam makes comeback! Women are returning to dressing up. And for the party season, they've tucked that little black dress at the back of the closet and are opting to leave the house in an elegant long evening gown. Some credit the sizzling social scene for the need for dressed-up, grown-up attire. Others cite the celebrity factor for driving women to add glamour to their lives. I think whatever the reason is, it's just so exciting to see ladies not afraid of getting more glamorous! Opting for full-length evening dresses raises the bar, not only in sophistication and glamour, but also the attention that will have to be paid to the details – hair, makeup and accessories. To get the full Cinderella effect, you have to go all the way, from head to toe. And that allure will pay off. "Wearing a gown will definitely get you noticed. It's also a chance to experience a new look. When you get that invitation and an opportunity to shine – go for long. You'll be the one that will be photographed and talked about the next day!" So go for it, darlings, put on your sweeping gown and make a grand entrance. Me...I wonder if I can get away with a long dress to my family's turkey dinner on Christmas Day, teehee.

I absolutely love this Notte by Marchesa cream gown. The lines of the neck and shoulders are divine.
