    Cocktail Dress Help

    Advertisements
    I have to go to a fundraiser at the beginning of October. It is a cocktail party thrown in honor of my boss. So I will be quasi staffing it-- just providing support to the people who are throwing it and then mingling all night to answer questions/prob take pictures/collect business cards facilitate meetings etc.

    is this a good dress http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3060364?...:referralID=NA

    I dont want to spend more than 75 on the dress because I will need shoes and a jacket of some kind. ugh! i don't make enough for this!

    Can anyone help me find more ideas.

    I am not a small girl- 14/16 dress size.

    I like it! You may want to get a darker color since it will be in the fall though.

    Gorgeous!!!

    I agree with BJo....darker would be better for the season
    You could always go with black as that never goes out of style also

    I agree with BJo, the dress is cute but the color is too springy for October.

    I think like this one too- in brown- more than I wanted to spend but a good brand.

    it looks icy to me-- but the cut is too summery-- I think it is just not a good color for that dress
