Personal Shopper: A Black Tie Dress on the Cheap for Karen

Karen wrote:"Hi There, I am looking for a gorgeous gown for a black tie wedding I have to go to next month. It's hard to find something that's not so expensive. All the dresses I've been looking at are well above $1,000. Can you help me find something just a couple of hundreds? Thank you, Karen"

Hi Karen, Mitchy here to start things off. Your request caused such excitement, we had two editors call dibs on it - so you get personal shoppers from Janetor and Carlota!

Janetor: Ooooh, black tie weddings! It's always fun to do these types of Personal Shopper requests, because then I get to vicariously attend through you and pretend my wardrobe doesn't consist of toddler-mandated applesauce-stained tee shirts and yoga pants. But I digress: I've rounded up seven lovely evening gowns, all $220 or less. Hope one of these makes you feel like a princess!

1. Lauren by Ralph Lauren Long Georgette Dress ($130 on sale)
2. Max & Cleo Pleated High/Low Gown ($188)
3. Aidan Mattox Beaded Halter-Neck Gown ($138 on sale)

5. Aidan Mattox One-Shoulder Cinched Gown ($134 on sale)
6. Adrianna Papell Stretch Tulle Gown ($188)
