This will be the first time I am meeting his ENTIRE extended family and I want to look fabulous but classy, obvi. I'm a size 4 but at 5ft 8 I some times have difficult with dresses being so short they don't cover my bum. I'd like to spend $150 or less. The event is at a Country Club this November. I want a dress that comes a few inches above my knees (not too short). I'm fond of an empire waste, strapless cuts, sweetheart top, and back cut out. I have a default LBD I could wear, but was hoping for something a little more special. I'm not picky about colors and am open to other cuts and styles. Since I'm curvy I don't want anything that is too tight on my hips. I'm hesitant about ruffles, shiny material, and sequins. Also, if it helps my date is wearing a dark brown tux (that's the most info I could get out of him. I'm fair skinned with brown hair and eyes. Thanks so much!"
