Is it too early for people to be looking for Christmas party dresses?

I've got a few nice dresses ie monsoon listed at the moment but only 1 watcher on 2 of them.
Maybe too early to list for Christmas parties?
Or maybe they are just horrible and no one likes them lol!

Lots of people spread out their Christmas budget over weeks now and there's always parties and weddings happening. Are the sizes smaller or larger than average? Do the photos do the items justice? Hopefully you'll get more traffic at the weekend smile.

I have sold in December before and got very good prices, maybe because shops have sold out.

I think it depends on the ages, for example I used to hold off buying clothes for special occasions when my dd was under 1 just in case she had a sudden growth spurt.
I'm terrible for buying something in advance then finding something else later on so maybe people want to see what comes out in the shops first?
Also another reason may be that people won't have had any invites yet so won't know how many parties they'll be invited to or if there's a theme/ fancy dress.
You can't go wrong with a Monsoon dress I don't think but ebay can be an odd place sometimes and you just can't predict what will sell!

My Christmas Party is in mid December and I've just bought 2 Karen Millen Dresses on Ebay (total cost £46). I always buy dresses about this time as it's just before the bun fight for dresses starts for Christmas. So a good time to buy. I've also just sold 2 KM Dresses one of which was a floral summer dress!
