I have to attend a black tie function in AZ at the end of this month.

What the hell does that mean, really? Have any suggestions on what to wear?

  • You will want to wear a dress...maybe something black and formal with some sparkly jewelry.

  • Formal...like men wear tuxes. I have gone to a couple black tie events and I buy my dresses at Macy's. They have a great selection

  • Black tie is formal wear. A dress for you and suit and tie for your husband. If you don't like dresses you can always call and find out if a dressy pant suit is appropriate for the occasion. This is a great opportunity though for you to go out and buy the little black dress you've been eyeing in the store window.LOL I hope you have fun.

  • I think you know what black tie means. I know you know what black tie means.

    If I were you and had your body, I would buy a formal gown but go really sassy. I would pick a bold color. I think I've seen a pic of you wearing purple and the color looked really good on you. maybe even a shorter dress. Hmmmmmm....this sounds like fun.

  • It's not a 'black and white' ball, is it? I think the black and white ball has specifics...

  • You can never go wrong with black dress and great shoes. Nordstrom's, Macy's or any dept store will have what you need. Just find a dress that you feel comfortable in... if you feel good then you will look good

  • Yes, it is black and white. So, do I have to wear a white dress? Can I wear a black dress?
