Do you have the holiday blues? I know I know, there are so many parties, and so little time. Seriously, who has the time to style all those fabulous outfits for all of your glamorous holiday soirees? Well I have a the color story of...yes, you guessed it, the blues!

Enter Ricky Freeman's Teri Jon. Teri Jon is a fashion label that will make all of you latke eating, eggnog drinking, party going woman swoon when you see this fabulous collection of evening gowns and dresses made just for you.

Ultimately, we are all looking for beautiful style and simple glamour that will make us feel great about ourselves, and Teri Jon dresses are cut to flatter a real woman's body, so you can go ahead and finish those latkes.

Walking into the the Teri Jon showroom is like walking into a fashion dream. The dresses come in an endless array of styles and a rainbow's worth of colors. Leora and I decided to go with three different dresses in the family of the blues, because whether you want to go formal or fun, there's a shade of blue that looks great on everyone, and blue will always look perfect for any holiday party style.

In this post, each dress is styled for modesty as you can see below. And with Teri Jon dresses, it was really easy to do that.  The cocktail length dresses fall right below the knee for a woman of average height and come with a generous hem that can be let down if necessary. I personally matched boleros or jackets for each dress to create a seamless sleeved look that maintains the integrity of the dress. Take a look:

This first dress is my favorite. It's a sequined sheath with a shear overlay and a sparkling belt. It has a wonderful ethereal quality about it.

For a friend's recent wedding I decided I wanted to up the glam factor and show a bit more of a fitted silhouette so I pinned up the sheer overlay into soft drapes. It was fabulous!

This next dress is fun and flattering. It features fuscia dots in a pattern of movement on an ink blue background and comes with a festive ribbon belt. I added my own sash because I personally find that a wider belt is more flattering for me:

 The flaired skirt is super comfortable and perfect for dancing the night away!

 And finally, the third dress is a brighter peacock blue that will light up your evening. It features a shimmering lace overlay that has just the right amount of color and sparkle. This dress also comes with a matching ribbon belt, but I preferred the dress beltless. And you can always add your own personal touches to make this dress work for you.
