Not sure if this is the right place for stylist request but I need help finding a dress for a Centennial Celebration for the college I graduated from. They are calling it a Blue Tie Gala and the invitation says "Blue Tie Optional". I am guessing there will be a variety of dress from church attire to formal gowns. I would love to find a fun formal dress and I am open to short or long dresses. I am 5'2" and a size 2. I recently bought an amazing pair of Nine West shoes that I would love to wear if I can find the right dress. I would love your help! Thanks!
Decisions, decisions. With so many colors in one shoe, you can hardly go wrong. Pick a dress in a complimentary shade of green, punch up that pink or pick out the yellow. So many options. The Pleat Shoulder Shift Dress (#4) will probably get you the most mileage after the Gala which would make the small purchase of $105 nearly impossible to pass up . Hope you have a ball at the gala! Don't forget your glass slippers! -Magzilla
