Thank you for the suggestions so far ladies!
I believe I can wear leggings underneath (I'm not aware of a dress code stipulation that says otherwise) but I don't like leggings other than black ones, which don't always go with lighter colors. But, I will definitely keep this option in mind! Thank you!
your suggestion had me go on yelp.com and search for local consignment shops- wow! What a bargain most of these places offer! I will definitely have to hit some of the local ones and see what a good scour through the racks can find me!
From my experience, the H&M here has similar hem-lengths to Forever 21, but I have not been in more than a year, AND I never searched for dresses so I will definitely stop in the next time I hit the mall. I also looked up Anne Taylor Loft because a slightly older teacher-friend of mine shops there and always looks cute and appropriate! Thanks for the suggestions
Hmm, I don't think I've heard of that store here, but I will have to check out their locations and stock. Thank you for your input!
Dress barn! A whole store for dresses! I need to check that out, I'm on it! Thank you
Please keep suggesting places
