Today is the day dedicated to our favourite thing, the Little Black Dress. Well maybe not so much to the dress its self, but more so to making sure you look damn good in yours come Christmas party season. Experts have specified that October 25th is the day to start getting yourself looking slimmer for when the time comes to don your Christmas party dress; giving you six weeks to gradually and sensibly drop a dress size and wow your work colleagues. So we’ve decided to use today to celebrate our favourite time of year and get geared up with plans for what to wear to this year's Christmas party, even if it is only October. We're already planning which trends we'll be wearing, maybe not so much how many smoothies we should be drinking. Here's some Christmas party dresses that got Team LBD excited in the office...
