I have the same issue. I dont wear strapless dresses so when I want to go to an event where I need to do it up, its so hard to find a dress that has the coverage I want without making me look dowdy!

I search and search until I track one down. Ive had a lot of success at Nordstroms and Lord & Taylor.

Cardigans. They save every outfit.

@Selcier: yup, cardigans save my stuffing 🙂 I’m always freezing too so I couldn’t imagine going around all the time with no sleeves.

I’m curious where you live in the Midwest? I’m in the Midwest too and I’m still using the AC in 60 degree weather, lol

Thirding the cardigans.  Especially handy if you do end up working up a sweat on the dancefloor, since you can remove them!

Abercrombie actually sells some REALLY pretty embellished cardigans that are perfect for dressier occasions. And when they’re on sale, they’re quite reasonably priced.  I’m wearing this one with a fuscia dress to a wedding in DC in a few weeks – since the weather is so unpredictable this time of year – it was 49 bucks on sale.

Cardigans work sometimes. If you are going to a really fancy party, a cardigan is a big no in my opinion. Then again, the events I go to generally have a dress code of evening gowns. I guess it depends on the event. Albanian weddings for example, you better be glitzy and red carpet ready or you are gonna stand out and not in a good way!

 

Have you tried Target? Ive found some awesome dresses there. Its my favorite bargain store. 

T.J. Maxx also gets some pretty great stuff here and there. Calvin Klein, my fav designer, has quite a few evening gown designs with sleeves. I usually go to Nordstroms to get his designs, but I have had major luck at T.J. Maxx also. Trust me, I prefer T.J.Maxx much nicer to my wallet!

@AlbanianBride27: You could always go with a fancier bolero or shrug for a nicer dress or gown to achieve the same effect

I always love a shrunken tuxedo jacket or well tailored boyfriend blazer with a dress and heel *swoon*.

Have you tried JC Penney?  I’m considering trying to find this one in the store because it comes in my favorite color — green — AND it’s $69.99.

 

Sorry, can’t get pic to work…ugh.
