Attire for black-tie events isn't black and white
Dear Answer Angel Ellen: I have been invited to a black-tie dinner at a fancy private club. Is a knee-length dress acceptable attire? The dress I would wear is sleeveless, decorated with rhinestones around the neckline and around the edges of the three-quarter-sleeve bolero jacket. It is a fairly straight sheath with an extra shirred panel over the skirt, dark royal blue. Please answer soon, because if I need a floor-length evening gown I have to buy one, or beg, borrow or steal one!
