I don't think anyone is going to think there is anything "inappropriate" about it at all. It's pretty conservative compared to other things I've seen out there.

I wish I had an occasion to wear that dress - the only difference would be I would want it in bright red!
Law firms aren't exactly known for embracing creativity. The holiday party in some industries is like a test to see if you are promotion material. It really depends on what you hope your future with the company is.

Work holiday party=not the occasion to look super "hot"


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

Since you'll be sitting at the table with your husband boss, I'd stay with simple and clean-lines, less is more! There a fine line between looking classy and trashy. Plus your representing your husband as well, these are his colleague!

SHE works there, not her husband. But the dress you posted was pretty, despite still having the black lace over nude fabric. I think the inevitable result is that people do double-takes and stare because you look naked underneath.

The 2nd dress I feel is more appropriate for the event and you will get compliments on.

The first dress....if you ask me, it looks like someone pulled the curtains down and made a dress out of them.

First of all, congrats on having the body to wear both dresses. I agree with most of the posters on the first dress - too sexy for an office party. The 2nd one is elegant and pretty. I see nothing wrong with it. I like black, and the beading on the shoulders give it a festive look perfectly appropriate for a Christmas party.

The first dress seems over the top to me.

But, what do I know? The only parties I go to everyone wears jeans, and cowboy boots, wearing a new Carhartt jacket makes you look overdressed.
