Personal Shopper: A dress for Emily's first Barrister's Ball

Emily B. wrote, "Dear Outblush, My best friend turned me on to your site, and now I look at it everyday (or as close as possible given the demands of law school). It is my first year in law school, and I am looking for a dress for my first barrister's ball in mid March in Williamsburg, VA. I want something black, sophisticated, long and flowing, but I would be willing to look at other colors that would be good for a fair-skinned blonde. I also don't want to look like I'm going to prom. I have a larger chest, so I'd prefer something with straps. I really don't want something too sexy as it is not appropriate for the event. I'm 5'2, and a size 8-10. My main difficulty is finding a dress that works with my height, and for a girl with a bust, hips, and thighs, but a small waist. My maximum budget is $150! Thank you so much for looking into this! Emily"
