I have a formal black tie event in a few months and I'm thinking about getting a new dress for it. So ladies show me your favorite formal dresses. I could use all the ideas I can get.

Here is the feel I am going for. Not necessarily this style of dress but I like the elegance of it.

I really like that first one. Thanks so much. I even like the color. Although I like one shoulder styles, I would also be happy with strapless or spaghetti straps. But I definitely want to show some skin. :graucho:

civicgirl that dress is really beautiful. And they have my size too. eek.

FrancescaAveiro this is one of the biggest events of the year so I want to look nice. On the other hand I'm in school full time so I can't really justify spending much more than $1000. On the other hand, since I'm in scool full time I haven't been to many fancy parties in the past few years so I haven't spent much on dresses and such. So maybe I have a good excuse to spend more??? I'm also considering wearing vintage so I can get more dress for the money.
And thank you for all the lovely suggestions. I can't believe how gorgeous and well priced they are!

I agree arireyes has excellent taste.

forgot to mention, I will get shoes and accesories too.
