I have been online and have seen a ton of pretty gowns, most way out of my price range, but I cannot find one for less than $150 that is fancy enough for what I need (and I kind of needs to be OMG) with out being too sexy or prom-y. I am slightly pear shaped and short.
For the first time in my political carreer, I have been invited to the Governors Inaugeral State Dinner/Gala. Usually I get invited to the dance the next night, which is also formal but not near what the first night is.
Will you help me?

I would check ebay. The have tons on there for around that price range. Or you could possibly rent one if you want something really extravagant.

You should post a few pictures to give us an idea of what you are looking for 🙂

I found a floor length, silver Vera Wang Lavender Label gown at a TJMaxx near me last December. My local one has a “Runway” section with a slim selection of designer gowns. I stalked that, since I wasn’t finding much in my price range at department stores. Congrats on the invite, btw! Very exciting 🙂

@Miss Scarlet: a runway section? I am going to have to complain to our local store, we don’t have that section.
@Miss Steinbeck: Those are stunning, but the lengths run really long (they don’t offer petite) and I will only have a few days to get it altered. The event is Jan. 6 and we have Christmas then a family wedding, time is tight.
