I dont know where you live but there are about 3 posh frock rental places in the mall where I live - they thrive because of proms and such. Why dont you look in yellow pages in the posh frocks for tartin yourself up section

A department store eg. Nordstrom's, Macy's, Lord & Taylor.

As a last resort...a store where they sell wedding dresses & prom dresses but they might be OTT.

As it's late Spring I would go for a shorter (knee length) dress...I'd only wear a long one at around Christmastime.

He he.....are you going to get a manicure and hair-do for the occasion too LOL!

Marshall's and Ross often have nice evening wear at reasonable prices (though more so in the months leading up to Christmas - next time plan ahead

But surely this is one of those occasions where 'the little black dress' (+/- pearls ) will do just perfectly?

Have fun! [better not too much though, seeing it's 'work'...]

Cheers ladies and Patrick, just nipped into Ross, bought one for $27.00!!!, woo hoo, fits me like a glove, my two year old says I look like a princess, aww , means I can now go spend $400 on some shoes..
Next question, anyone have any recommendations for them spray on tans, dress has spaghetti straps and due to lack of sunbathing weather in sunny California I'm pasty white..

http://www.dresses.com/evening1.html Nos. 15, 26, 28 and 30 are my personal faves, even though I'd be constantly wiping the floor with all of them as I'm damn short LOL ... or do like me ... I'm completely clothed by J.C. Penney! LOL They seem to have everything you need. I hate wearing skirts and dresses, though. Am sitting here in my workout clothes after sweating my arse off (actually, that would have been nice) at a kickboxing class this evening, much more comfy in that kind of thing, so I know how you feel!

Found this too: http://www3.shopping.com/xDN-Clothin...dresses~V-grid

I would personally steer clear of any "satin" ones... they look like long lingerie.
