That’s exciting! Things ARE expensive here compared to the US/UK, but it depends what sort of a budget you’re on. I usually try department stores first: or even some bridal stores – they often have sale racks of one-off formal dresses (think cocktail/bridesmaid) that are last season/reduced. Those might work for a formal black tie?

Yeah I’d check out David Jones or Myer – you can usually get some good deals.  Wayne Cooper has some nice long dresses that can be dressed up or dressed down, and they are usually in the $100-$150 range.  

Good luck!

I’d try Myer and DJs first, they often have good stuff, especially if you go to a bigger store. Although I’d be tempted to buy one in Rome!
