I don't think I've been to a ball before. I know this one's going to be a less-formal one (if there is such a thing), so I think it will be ok to have a short dress. I've been looking at BCBG as I am such a fan! Just wondered if you had to been to any balls, what you wore (pics would be great!) and if you had any suggestions as to what I could wear. With the dollar growing against the pound, I am sad to say, that my max spend will be about $300, unless I can wear it again!!
