I was thinking something knee-length or above (but not too short) and with a bold, graphic pattern. I'm 5'6 and 135 lb, so around a size 6. I'm not particular about whether or not it's strapless, but I'm not a huge fan of spaghetti straps, cap or flutter sleeves (I love one-shoulder dresses though). I'm pretty evenly built, but I would love something that could define my waist. As far as colors go, I kind of lean towards darker ones, and anything with navy, grey, gold, silver or a rich purple would be great. I'm just trying to steer clear of black this year. It would also be great if it was under $200. Thanks so much!"
