Winter Holidays Dream Dress: My Review of the Evening Pearl Dress

December 23, 2020 ยท by Andrea Long

The 2020 holidays are upon us! Lately, my weeks have been crammed with holiday shopping, parties, banquets, and repeat. The Christmas festivities are in full swing; after several celebrations with our families, we'll be in the midst of New Year joy and all the fun that comes with this season. It's enough to wear us out! 

Every year, when I search for the perfect Christmas banquet or party dress, my main goal is to buy something that I will wear again. There is nothing more disheartening than buying the most gorgeous dress and never being able to wear it again (wedding dress excluded). When Dainty Jewell's produced their winter line, I was thrilled to find this classy, elegant dress, The Evening Pearl Dress!

As a mother of two toddlers, I must have a dress that is comfortable, cleans well, and won't be tugged down or up by busy little boys. 

This dress is a lovely choice AND can be worn for a Christmas banquet or New Year's party. Also, for you brides-to-be, I can see The Evening Pearl Dress as gorgeous bridesmaids' dresses for a dreamy winter wedding. 

The dress is made of a high-quality knit that is not form-fitting. The A-line style is so flattering, yet modest. My favorite features are the pearl buttons on the sleeves, the sleeve detail, and the hidden pockets (because who doesn't love pockets?). 

I love the soft lavender color of this dress. It goes beyond the traditional Christmas colors, making it ideal to wear all winter long. 

I personally adore dresses that can be styled multiple ways. It is lovely to find a classic outfit that can be accessorized differently every time you wear it. With the Evening Pearl Dress the options are limitless! Add some sparkly heels for the holidays, then tone it down with classic black, nude, or navy for the rest of the year. Add the belt it comes with or leave it free. A pearl or velvet headband and small clutch completes this outfit. 

What a dream dress!
