Kelli writes: I LOVE my silk maxi dress (in Everglade). Its comfortable, it looks fab, and I find it to be pretty versitile. However is it too casual to wear to a black tie wedding that I'll be attending next month? And if it is appropriate, what accessories should I pair with it to emphasize my waist a bit more and dress it up?? HELP!
Kelli, I hate to break it to you but your Ann Taylor dress just ain't gonna cut it for a black tie affair. That being said, I found you a dress in the exact same shade along with some accessories that fit your budget of $200-250. Knowing how much you love the versatility of the original dress, this option also works in a lot of different settings, as do the accessories I chose. I just couldn't seem to choose which accessories went best. So you and the readers get to decide which is best. Mazel tov! -Magzilla

The sizes listed on the site are UK sizes so you'd want to get a 6 (which fits my non-pregnant size 4 frame).
