I need a 3/4 sleeve dress fast

I have a wedding to go to this weekend as a guest. I also just got released from the hospital and have crazy bruises in the crooks of both my arms, and would prefer not to show them off! This means I need a new dress with 3/4 sleeves! Can you help me find one?

I am a size 00 and would like to go to the mall and pick up a dress that looks age-appropriate - I am 31 - and fits. I also don't want to spend a really long time at the mall while I'm recovering. I thought Forever 21 would be a good bet, but the website reveals mostly cheap-looking dresses for a younger crowd, and very few of them with 3/4 sleeves.
I would really like to spend $60 or less. My shoes are gorgeous neutral flats and I also have a pretty necklace I planned to wear. I have in mind a shift with lace over it, perhaps, if it is a dark enough color. The wedding is outside in Upstate New York in the early afternoon this coming Sunday. I also need a dress for the rehearsal dinner, or possibly a nice shirt that I can wear with a skirt that I already own.
Most of my wardrobe is from J. Crew, for what it's worth, but I was there very recently and didn't see this kind of dress. Part of the problem is probably seasonal, I suspect. I leave too early to get anything online at this point, but I live in a major metropolitan area in the Southern US.
