I am beyond excited (especially at the prospect of seeing him in a tux) but I have *no idea* what to wear as I've never been to one. December seems so far away but those 6 weeks will fly by and I'm having some trouble finding anything great online. I'm 22 so I don't want to look like a teenager going to Prom, but I also don't want to look matronly. I'd also like to keep it under $150, $200 max. Please help me find a sexy dress appropriate for a military ball!"
