The Marine Corps ball is right around the corner, yikes! 
But no fear inspirations await as I take you along my mission for an affordable styling dress! I posted last year's dress and pictures here! Here's a few that caught my eye this time around!
White seems to be all the rage lately, never great on me, but lovely on darker skin tones!!! This one's stunning from nordstrom.

Navy blue gets me every time via renttherunway

Great spin on classic black via renttherunway

This is the modern version of the pretty woman dress via netaporter

I can't explain why but I love this vintage looking dress via netaporter
