@beachchicbride:  Probably just a simple black dress with something sparkly.

@beachchicbride:  Agh! Sorry, yeah it is not working for me either for some reason. It is the asymmetrical black dress on the Victoria Secret website. It was pretty modest, but still seemed to hug the body for a sexy look.

Have you ever checked out Rent the Runway? To me, a Gala says long dress and I love the options that Rent the Runway has for long, pretty dresses. Here’s some that I would wear:

My law school had something similar, and I usually wore a floor length gown.  Here I am at my Grad Ball with my then-boyfriend 🙂

I got that dress from Macy’s – they are a good place to start, because they have a lot of floor length options.

@beachchicbride:  I’ve done Rent the Runway before and they are great!  I have kind of sized out of most of their options now though (:-/), but I was impressed with the service.

I have rented four times and LOVED IT! You get the dress clean in a garment bag for four or eight days depending on how long you need and then put the dress back in a prepaid bag and pop it right back into the mail on the day that your rental is over (by noon so you don’t get late fees!). It is the easiest process in the world and the dresses are awesome! Just pay attention to the reviews for each dress as the reviewers list their measurements and you can usually find someone who is close to your body type that has posted a pic of the dress so you can get a real idea of what the dress will look like.
