I have to attend "an elegant cocktail reception" first week of september. Any suggestions of specific store/s to go to make this less painful to shop for? lol. And I can't spend a fortune on a dress and shoes for one night! I'm in Parma, the land of no clothes shopping-mall just an empty shell, so I'm sure I will have to be leaving town to shop. Can't do online shopping because I'm unproportioned....have to try things on!
