dress me for…

a wedding!
I have a good friend’s wedding to attend this June in Denver.  I love weddings and I’m so excited to be able to share in her special day with her.  However, I’m already stressing about what to wear.  It’s a black tie wedding and since I will be just a few months out of surgery, I need to wear flats.  While I might usually be able to rock a short frock for black tie (etiquette has changed over the years) there’s no way that I can make any of the short dresses in my closet black tie appropriate if I have to wear flats.
Of course I already have some long dresses in my closet, but those are either out of style or will need to be altered to wear with flats.  I thought about altering a gorgeous beaded Sue Wong gown but realized that for the cost of altering a beaded gown, I could get a whole new gown.  And so, the hunt is on…
I’m looking for a style that can be worn with a dressy flat sandal and chiffon appeals to me for the spring/summer.  Plus it’s light and flowy and beautiful.  I fell in love with this dress from Cache.  I was just what I was looking for, flowy with some bling.
I almost bought it online but went to visit it in the store and found that it was way too glitzy for my taste and instead of a beautiful blush color, it was orange in store.  Sad.
So now I’m on the lookout for similarly styled dresses.  Since it’s a destination wedding and chances are I won’t be wearing a long dress often, I’m trying to keep the price around or below $200.  I’m loving these dresses.

Any thoughts on where I should start looking?
