It's an evening ceremony and reception, relatively fancy but still kind of funky/individualistic. My dream dress is this one, but that is a good $500 over my price range. Any other unusual/funky/striking dresses you can recommend for a fairly skinny, flat-chested mid-30s woman such as myself? Thanks a million!"
