Where she will be receiving awards and placed into the board of realtors, president position. she would just rather prefer to wear a suit pant. However, being the only women on a board of 8 men, I am afraid that she will look like "a workaholic lesbian". We are been searching long and hard with no luck, finding that perfect one. The dress must have some type of sleeve, at least a cap and no low cut. She has a taste for very classy classic look with the basic black white, and wears color as accent pieces. Please help. My mom says: 'Dress size: 6 or 8 Budget: 200.00 - 300.00 Date of event: August 16th in Park City, Utah. I do like very classic styles, but would love to find something in a rich color. Blue, red, purple,. Not pastel, but deep rich color. If not, black is always formal. Thanks'"
