Formal dress shopping!

I have a ton of time but where does one go to find a formal dress that isn't like a prom dress. I'm 31 and don't need to to look like I'm a Sr in highschool, lol.

    Good question! I've seen other moms post photos of themselves in formal wear on Facebook but never noticed where they bought their dresses. What about bridal shops etc.? The most recent ones I saw were elegant and looked beautiful on the women wearing them.

    I know! Me too! I don't want to pay hundreds though. It's for a ceremony at a Loss Moms retreat I'm attending in December.

      I agree with going to David's Bridal.

          I don't want actual sleeves but want something since it will be December. And it's a decent price. I'm very slim and short so things can get over powering easily.
