Knee length cocktail dress is fine. Nothing too short or that shows a lot of cleavage. I dress more conservatively than I would if it were a holiday party with friends. You could also do a jumpsuit, skirt and blouse, etc

JCrew has a really cute new velvet jumpsuit that would be perfect!!

Yea my general rule is celebratory but not sexy at all. So colors, sparkles, etc is ok but no cleavage and no slits. This depends on your firm and the nature of the holiday events, but I prefer to err on the boring side :/

Everyday I think about quitting & how much I hate my job. When do I say enough is enough and quit? I have a family to support & a ton of student loans so it not like I can be unemployed. Just recently switched careers so it's unlikely I'd be able to find something better soon. I feel so trapped. Sometimes I have thoughts that if I'm seriously hurt I can take time off suddenly & have a real break but I know that's not good. (More in comments.)
