Dress Barn — yes, Dress Barn! — has perfect designer dresses for the holiday season

Did you know that Dress Barn has a brand new collection of designer dresses in its new ‘Dress Bar’ section? I don’t think I’ve been to a Dress Barn in years — and the last time was probably with my mom, while she was looking for something. I’ve always considered it to be a store for “older women” but now I am thinking I may need to rethink that.

Anyway — these dresses are gorgeous and totally affordable. And with the holiday season right around the corner (yes, really), you know you’re going to need a few fancy dresses in rotation that you can just throw on when a holiday party, fundraiser or family function pops up on the calendar.

You can shop the entire collection here, but these are just some of my favorites:
