Personal Shopper: A Dress for Kelly's Black Tie Event in NYC

Kelly writes: "I have a black tie wedding in New York City next month for my best friend and it's my first time in the big apple! I have recently lost about 15 lbs and have nothing I can wear and am not sure what to go looking for. I want it to be long and I am a curvy size 6 or eight with a decent (read: D cup) bust but I have a lil' JLo following me around so I need to accentuate but not exaggerate the booty (I'm a green-eyed redhead and feel more Jessica Rabbit than Pippi Longstocking). I love jewel tones and also coral/orange colors. Strapless is okay, but I prefer a little more support. My budget tops out at $350. If you guys can help me out, I would be thrilled! Thanks so much!"

Oh wow. I love the green J. Crew dress! It doesn't read as prom-y as the ones with beading/sequins. Plus, I love a readhead in green. Have a great time in NYC!
