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.

She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting Oh dear, that sounds like a dreadful situation. I've lived through similar difficulties in my own life, and my heart goes out to you, truly. May I offer you some advice? I don't have the cure to your problems or a magic wand that can make them disappear, but I do believe that some good can come out of your living situation. The first thing I'd like to make note of, is that everyone makes mistakes. As human beings, we have to make mistakes. There's no way around it; it's how we learn and grow. And as we get older, we don't stop making mistakes. Your parents are no exception. Although we look to our parents for guidance, and direction, and support, we have to understand that they aren't perfect people, and they make mistakes. They may not always lead us in the right direction. They may not always set a good example. They may not always be there for us, to encourage us and support us when we need them most. And that's okay. Everyone makes mistakes, and we have to accept that. But we can't let allow other people's mistakes to hurt us, my dear. And I know it hurts. Your mum might not understand how her actions make you feel. You said you haven't been the same since your parents divorced, and I know how challenging that can be to go through. But you know, some of the brightest, wisest, and happiest people I've met, are people who have dealt with difficult problems in their lives, and used them to grow as people. You can let your parents' mistakes get to you, and make you upset and depressed; or, you can accept that they aren't perfect people, accept that they make mistakes, and accept that their mistakes don't have anything to do with you. So here's what you do, friend: you can't stop your mum from going clubbing, and that's okay. Don't try to. Don't fight with her about it. You can let her know how it makes you feel, but don't get into an argument. Accept the situation for what it is. Your mother is her own person, and she is accountable for what she does; you aren't. Next time you start to get in a fight or an argument with her, just step back, and withdraw yourself. Try it, see what happens. Once you decide not to let other peoples' failings affect you--and you do have the power to do this--then you'll find a sense of peace you probably haven't felt before. And you'll learn from your mistakes, and the mistakes of your parents, and everyone around you, and you'll be a better person. Press on.

my ex is going through the same thing. Call the police now. Things will get out of hand. My brothers friend has been living with us for about 2 weeks becuz his dad punched him in the face. Call 911 now. They will help you. Just say you have been abused by your family member and they will take it from there. If you want, add me and we can talk

If you are getting abused to the point where you bleed, call the police immediately. This isn't acceptable behavior.

Hey, Just wanted some advice to help me on what to do on this. Ever since I was 3 I've been both Verbally, Mentally, And Physically abused. To me, this is normal since it's been happening for so long. But I just can't take this thing anymore. When I get home I always get yelled at for no reason. I have been on Anti-Depressants for the past 1-2 years. Been going to counseling for 6-7 years for family. Nothing has changed yet. I just need help on how to handle this. Thanks.
