I just found out our low key plans for New Year’s have been replaced by going to a club and getting bottle service. It’ll be a lot of fun (or that is what I keep telling myself), but I have absolutely nothing to wear (clubs and bottle service are not my thing). I would love your help.
About me: I am tall and have a tiny frame with a generous bust. I am fine showing skin, but prefer not to look like a street walker.
About the dress: the other girls will be going all out and wearing “something short and sparkly”. They go all out and I should look the part. This will realistically be the only time I wear the dress, so I would like to keep it under $30 (but could go up to $50).
I need to pick it up in person and live in a major metropolitan area, so I can shop almost anywhere.

If you’re at all willing to order online, I’d recommend Asos.com. I’ve bought several new years eve dresses from them of the sparkly variety. I think if you order soon, you can get it in time. They also have a pretty liberal return policy if you want to order a couple dresses to make sure you get the right fit.
ETA: they are doing 50% off new years attire (just noticed an email about this). http://us.asos.com/Collection-Promotion/Promotion-5/Cat/pgecategory.aspx?affId=2671&cid=16046&full_site=yes&WT.tsrc=Email&WT.dcsvid=24795762&r=2

Thanks so much for the suggestions! I am going to head over to the mall later and will check out Marshalls, NY & Co, and Forever 21 and report back!

Thank you again for all of your help! I found an awesome dress at Nordstrom Rack for under $25! All of the other stores you mentioned had great dresses, but they were super short. I am 5’9, but have the inseam of someone 6’3. I can’t pull off the super micro mini. This was slightly longer and is sexy without making it look like I belong on the street.

@melonseeds: Here you go– my legs look incredibly giraffe-like from this angle– much more than they do in person :-). It isn’t my favorite dress ever, but for the price and the dresses made for disproportional people, it was the far and away winner.
