I have an event on oct 12. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to get a dress lol! I'm hitting up Nordstrom Rack today, hopefully I can find something on sale.
My question: is it ok to get a cocktail length dress for this (not above the knee)? Something like these?
I keep finding conflicting etiquette. I just feel like if I buy some long evening gown, I'll never ever wear it again and money is tight, so I don't want to be wasteful here. I do a bunch of freelance design for the president of the company, my tickets were free. DH will have to rent a tux, that's at least $100 right there. I REALLY want to stay under $150 for me, but there are going to be lots of local celebrities and NFL players & their wives there, I just don't want to look cheap next to them!!
