10 Boutiques for Party Dresses

The holiday party dress is a very special thing.


The purchase of a party dress can inspire a mixture of dread and joy. Dread that you may have gone up a size and joy that – well hello; it’s time for a new dress! Show me a woman that doesn’t want to feel beautiful in a party dress and I will show you a phony.

DiscoverSD shares ten chic boutiques for holiday party dresses.

The upstairs level has so many fun dress options you may have to leave with three or four instead of the one you came in for. This is perfect for the edgier parties you will be attending.
