Hello Divas! Can you believe its already the end of the year? Whether you celebrate Christmas or not I’ve always felt like the holidays are time for friends and family to come together. As I began to reflect on this past year, I wanted to write a note of gratitude to my S9S family and community for an amazing year together. This year has been one crazy ride as we've continued to navigate the lasting effects of the pandemic and I feel so blessed to have been able to dress you all to the nines for your special events, performances, photo shoots, galas and more. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this year a great one!

Christmas has always been a busy time filled with events and performances. Over the years this holiday became a stressful time, which for a while lost its meaning for me. With the world on pause, it forced me to rekindle the joy of this season. Before my career in entertainment, I remember each year with my siblings creating traditions: baking, crafting, cutting down and decorating the tree, going to church, and attending lavish dinner events. And I loved how our home was always decorated with smiling faces and beautiful music.

Now that I am older, I love reliving these memories every time I decorate my tree and home. I appreciate this time of yearso much more, how it brings family and friends together, and from now on I will be hugging them a little tighter each time. After a few missed seasons of dressing up and going out, I've also missed all the holiday glamour! 

This year more then ever I know I'm looking forward to being able to dress up. My Stage 9 Secrets Wish list is filled with the most stunning dresses I can’t wait to wear! I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite styles with you, to give you some inspiration for dressing up throughout the holidays. Whether it's Christmas or New Years; a floor length gown with sequins; a chic mini dress; or a bold statement dress with a pop of color; I've done my best to ensure Stage 9 Secrets has got a perfect dress for everyone. Below I've shared my top five personal favorites, I hope you like them:

Satin Wrap Dress

This simple yet chic design is not only a modest dress choice, but perfect for any evening holiday party this season. This gown is sophisticated, elegant and I absolutely love that its also season appropriate with it's long sleeves and designed in a soft satin material for an added touch of holiday glamour.

Marilyn Feather Dress

For those who know me, you'll know I love two things in life; feathers and sparkles! So of course this brand new arrival is one of my top loved gowns. I love the nuances of classic Hollywood made in an ultra cute blush pink color. If you're looking to be the Christmas star this holiday season then this feather Marilynshowstopping dress is for you!

Feather Hem Cocktail Dress

I get sometimes a full length evening gowns can be overkill depending on the event. If you're looking to keep it cute and glamorous then another dress I'm completely obsessed with is our Feather Hem Cocktail dress in mauve. A touch of sparkle and just the right amount of flirtatious flair.

Off Shoulder Satin Tiffany Dress

If feathers aren't your thing, then you're going to love my next suggestion. This super cute Tiffany Satin cocktail dress is another knee length option perfect for a holiday party dress. The dress is designed in a satin material and comes with a thin crystal belt for the perfect touch of sparkle. I don't know about you, but I love the look of an off shoulder dress!

Daenerys Cocktail Dress

Who says you have to stick to holiday colors? While red, emerald, gold and silver are a popular choice around this time of year, for those who feel most confident in black, check out our Daenerys dress. This cute little black dress with micro hot spots is one you can wear year round for any occasion. My favorite part about this dress is how versatile it is; dress it down with black pantyhose and a heeled ankle boot, or make it extra glamorous by pairing it with a black (faux) fur jacket and silver rhinestone detailed heels - this dress can be worn countless ways which is why I love it so much!

As someone who loves all things glitter and gorgeous it was super hard to pick just a few. While these selections are my top five from our brand new collection of sequin gowns , showstopper gowns and evening dresses, there are SO many more stunning dresses to choose from on the Stage 9 Secrets website. I would love to know which are your favorites, let us know in the comments below!
