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.

I completely understand. I'm non-binary, meaning I identify as neither boy or girl. I'm more of a mix of the two, or somewhere in between. I'm not comfortable with identifying as a girl, but not completely identifying as a boy either. Idk, I'm rambling, it's pretty complicated. The point being, identity is a personal matter. If you honestly feel as if you should've been born a boy, maybe you're transgender. Or maybe you're transgender in the sense that you're a mix of the two, or neither at all. Find something that suits you. Don't worry about what other people say or how they perceive you. What matters is how you feel comfortable. Like looking at my profile right now you'd definitely think I'm a cisgender girl but no, that's not me. And it does not define me either. People calling you a boy does not define you either, unless that's what you want of it.

My best friend is a guy. Yep, ad you guessed, I've begun to like him. He's liked me for a long time... but here come why I haven't asked him out. I can't date. I'm not allowed. Talk about a bummer. We give each other sweet notes and gifts, so Id like to count that, but here comes anot her bummer I only see him once a week. So I want to ask his number, but I would have to text him on my mom's phone. I don't have a problem with this, but now I don't know how to ask his numb3r. Advice?

Hi, I'm lost, lost where no idea how i feel now i'm  lost a small clue.Well it feels like i'm sinking into nowhere, into total darkness, into  space where no one can hear my cry.I feel as if i'm stuck in a corner and can't get out, stuck in quick sand getting dragged under. It's hard to explain but some times it feels as if my body is weightless but my feet weigh 1000 tuns. PLEASE HELP ME WHY COULD I BE FEELING LIKE THIS?invisablemaster vanishing into thin air xx
