Personal Shopper: A work-to-date-night dress under $50 for Maithri's post-baby figure

Maithri wrote, "I am a religious reader and love everything on your site! I need help find a dress. Sounds easy but its not - atleast not if you want a dress that hits your knee and manages to fit a body with a narrow waist, baby belly (By baby belly I mean I had a baby and am left with a bit of a belly. Not maternity clothing!) and wide hips. I would love it if you could help me find an easy wear to work/dress up to go out kind of dress not strapless or spaghetti straps that hits knee length. I am 5.5" and 140lbs with an extreme hour glass shape. Oh and possibly under $50!"
