Holiday Dresses: Borrow, Rent or Buy?

 Are you ready for holiday parties and formal events?   I love a good event to get all dressed up for but honestly it rarely happens so I get extra excited to get all dressed up.  This year my dad is officially retiring from his work place, and they are wanting to give him a formal goodbye at the company's annual holiday party, so they have  invited us to join them.  If you follow me on IG, you know in early fall I was invited to join my BFF for a formal awards event in our city and I was seeking help on picking my outfit.  I loved playing dress up and deciding what to wear.  This deep blue, silk dress was the winner!  When it comes to fancy dresses, I own a few, but it's a good idea to trade with friends to get more wear out of them.  This dress was borrowed from my sisters closet.  It  flows beautifully, it's a little bit sexy with the slit and I love the way it showcases my shoulders and arms.  The halter top also means that you don't need a statement piece around the neck, and I kept things simple with dangly earrings and stacked bracelets.  I added a shawl to wrap up in case of a chill and I was good to go.  I truly felt beautiful and although I will not be wearing it to my dads event as it's been returned, I might be choosing one of the other three options below.

What should I wear for my next event?
