I need to dress in 80s attire for one of my clients' corporate galas next month. Since I'm the event planner, I need something low-key, simple and not totally ridiculous. So, the Robert Palmer girls
came to mind -- the black dresses, dark eyes, red lips, pulled-back hair, etc.
Unfortunately, I waited too long to start dress shopping and now I can't seem to find an appropriate dress (maybe this is too wintry?). I prefer a mock-turtleneck or crewneck, long-sleeved, knit dress free of any embellishments. It can be as short as mid-thigh or as long as knee-length but no more. It needs to fit a relatively tall (5'9" barefoot, 6' with the shoes I'll most likely wear), very curvy (size 16, evenly proportioned shoulders/waist/hips but very large breasts) woman. Bonus if it's in a store I can visit in the Baltimore/Washington area, but online is OK too.
Websites I've checked: Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, Macy's, JCPenney, Sears, JCrew, Gap, Old Navy, J. Jill, Coldwater Creek, Garnet Hill, Talbots, White House Black Market, Eddie Bauer, Land's End, L.L. Bean, Newport News, Victoria's Secret, Lane Bryant, The Avenue and Torrid. Perhaps I missed something, but I saw very little that fit my criteria.
Please help me find something that would work! Thanks!
