Hey tb, I haven't been on for a while, i've been really busy with school and all but i was wondering if you could help me, at least the girls can. I need a dress that is semi-formal for two sweet-sixteens coming up. I would like them to be a cross between a very hip modern dress/audrey hepburn/ (don't laugh at me) like a gabriella montez style. If you could post pictures or give advice that would be great! thnx! :goodvibes :goodvibes :cutie: :cutie:

Try going to these sites. You can build your own dress -with no commitment to buy-. I think they have a lot of the sort of styles you're looking for :).

I like the second one better. The second is more "teen" and the top seems to be aimed at a slightly older crowd.

To get that particular style, you're best bet is to go looking at boutiques and not department stores. So it's probably gonna get pricey.

Good luck with your search!!

No idea who Gabriella Montez is, but if you're looking for a Audrey style dress you should look at some vintage stores, or just get a vintage looking dress, but then you'd probably have to spend a lot of money. The LBD she wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's by Givenchy is always good, and there's a lot of dresses like it, but any basic knee length shift dress will work. Audrey liked to dress simple, she didn't wear many bright colours and prints, so you should stay away from those. I don't really understand the style you're trying to say, but heres some examples of dresses
