First, Noelle wrote, "Outblush team, I need your help please. Our company theme for this year's Christmas party is "Moon over Morocco" and the attire should be "Think Casablanca meets Lawrence of Arabia" So I need your help with outfit ideas ... I am horrible at this - if you know websites/stores who have something I can get. I am looking for something I can wear again ... Range around the $100-150 or more if I absolutely fall in love. I know you're the best person to ask for this. So will you help me out please? Give me some suggestions/ideas? Thanks."

I know you're the best person to ask for this .. for obvious reasons plus I happen to be one of your biggest fans (you set the trend)! So will you help me out? Give me some suggestions/ideas?

First and foremost, "Moon over Morocco"? What is this, a high school prom? We're a little surprised that you'd be required to dress that way for a work party, but that's beside the point. You could either go full-on Moroccan - floor length gauzy dresses - or more 1940's, with wrap or belted dresses. Either way, accessorize with some Moroccan-style jewelry and a fez, if you're so inclined. (Alternately, you could go the dapper gent route and do a little white tuxedo jacket + black pants ensemble...)

1. Red Carpet Royalty Dress ($130)
2. ASOS Embellished Neck Chiffon Maxi Dress ($95, 2 colors)
3. A Grecian Turn Dress ($90)
4. Marc New York Stretch Faux Wrap Belted Dress ($99, 2 colors)
5. Sparrow Midnight Safari Dress ($70)
6. Warehouse Chiffon Maxi Dress ($134)
7. Frolick Moroccan Tear Necklace with Purple Haze ($80)
8. Forever21 Moroccan Princess Earrings ($7)
