I haven't been to a black tie event since I was, oh, 20-something? I own nothing even remotely posh frock-ish and for one night I'm thinking I'll probably rent. But what? What the hell do you wear nowadays? The kind of 'ball dress' I wore 15 years ago is not going to suit me any more. I'm 38, 5'4", slim, but hourglass shaped. Any ideas?

Given that there are maxi dresses everywhere and Christmas is coming, I would have thought there'd be lots of options. I think long, but not bridesmaidy is the answer.
