We can all choose our own dresses with the guidelines that they are black, matte, and tea length. I have been looking around and have not been able to find anything! I loved the There Is Only You and Me Valenciennes Dress but alas, it's not all black! I am 5'6 and a dress size 6. I would love to find a dress that I can wear again and again that is unique. I don't have a set budget but would like to stay around $350 or under, if possible. I hope you can help! Thanks so much, you're all the best! Xoxo, Miranda "
