Living: CHOOSE YOUR CHR RISTMAS CRACKER; Five drop-dead gorgeous outfits and one to suit every budget...but can you match the dress with the price tag?
`TIS the season to be bonny - but how much do you want to shell out for your party frock?
We all like to wear something a little bit special for Christmas parties but it's difficult when our bank accounts and credit cards re stretched to the limit.
The good news is that there's a huge choice on the High Street to suit all tastes and pockets.
You can look a million dollars for next to nothing. If you've got lots of parties to go to, you might even be able to snap up a couple of little festive numbers for less than pounds 50.
There are some fabulously decadent designs, many simply dripping in sequins which will add that all-important sparkle to your Christmas look.
Here we've lined up five drop-dead gorgeous dresses and there's one to suit every budget.
But can you match the dress with the price tag? First impressions can be delightfully deceptive!
