June P: writes: "Help! I'm going to a Southern wedding in two weeks that is "fancy but not formal" according to the bride. It is an evening, outdoor wedding. I really like this dress, but a) don't know if it's appropriate b) a bit spendy, I'd like to spend < $175. I'm open to suggestions though. Thanks! I hope you can help as am I at a loss. Might end up going in my birthday suit. my dress size is 10/12, but I have super wide shoulders, like ridiculous wide. and I have no discernible waist. 5' 9"."

I say go with #3. It's at Kohls, so you may be able to find it at your local store and try it on ahead of time, and I just got a 15% off coupon in my inbox that should work both online and in-store. It'll be going up on the pretty soon (gotta test it first), so check there, and I also might add it to the bottom of this post for funsies.
