My boyfriend and I will be attending three weddings in four weeks this August--all for couples in the same group of friends, so the same people will be at every wedding! I need to find at least one new dress so I'm not wearing the same thing every time. Unfortunately, I'm a graduate student and TA in Wisconsin (where budget cuts and the threat of strikes are looming), and I need a dress that is SUPER budget-friendly--preferably $50 or less. I'm a size 8, 5'9" with really long legs and broad shoulders, and can't wear anything strapless or super short. I look best in a sweetheart neckline and would love something in dark gray, navy, or dark green. Thank you SO MUCH!!! --Dana P.S. I love the style of the dress that you posted recently, but would like a little more embellishment!"
