Get gorgeous this holiday season with our Top 5 Party Dresses of 2012. Whether you're looking for the perfect little black dress, going for a rock star sequined look, or looking as pretty as a holiday present, we've got the styles you're looking for...

#5 Pretty as a present

This champagne pink sequined bow trimmed dress from Forever 21 is the antidote to the little black dress and ho-ho-ho red everyone else will be wearing this year. We love the little black bow at the waist, because the best things come wrapped in a little black bow!

#4 Lovely in red lace

Think Back to September when Taylor Swift rocked this dress. Perky, sweet and retro, this red lace number is perfect for a holiday gathering whether you're celebrating the ho-ho-holidays with family or out on the town. The Fit and Flare Iris dress is one celebrity outfit you can actually own (for a mere $198 from French Connection).

#3 Silver belle

Silver dresses should stay in your closet until holiday season... unless, of course you're a hot celeb like iCarly's Miranda Cosgrove. She totally rocked this cute little silver dress at the 2012 Nick Teen Choice awards and you can rock it at your next holiday party, too!

#2 LBD

Three cheers for the Little Black Dress (LBD) in all of its beautiful forms! This one's just different enough that you won't fade into the background at any party. We love it for its asymmetry (one sleeve long, one sleeve gone) and its draped dramatic shoulder. ($79 from Newly Maid.)

#1 Not-so-heavy metal

This metallic tube LBD (little black dress) is tops on our chart this year. Coming to you from price-friendly Forever 21, this jacquard metallic-blend tube dress features a sweetheart bodice with front and back boning for shape and structure. It comes with adjustable elastic spaghetti straps, in case you need the extra support. Our favorite feature: the pleated and slanted pockets in the front.  It sells for $32.80 on their website and in stores.

Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
