Whether you love the opportunity to get dolled up for holiday parties or see it as a major chore, we're guessing you're on the hook to attend one or two (or five) shindigs this month. Lucky you, the Bay Area has you covered when it comes to shopping for a holiday dress that will make you look and feel festive as all get out. We've collected seven of our favorite dress-shopping haunts on this handy map, so you can efficiently make your way around the city (and outside of it) in search of that elusive perfect dress. You'll find enough frills and sequins to please Liberace—but maybe you'd rather eschew the dress and go for a leather-corseted jumpsuit? There's something for you, too. Happy shopping and happy holidays!
