    Ladies,

    I need your help. I have been looking for a nice dress to wear, for performing. Nothing too fancy or expensive, just a nice, classy, go-anywhere type of dress. I do not have the talent or time to make one myself, so I need some suggestions. Any particular stores, brands, or websites would be appreciated. Thanks so much for any advice you can give me. :-)

    I like the look of palazzo pants and a pretty blouse. Palazzo pants have very wide legs that when you are standing almost look like a long skirt. I think it’s a nice “between” look – can be fancy or casual depending on the blouse you put with it. There’s tons of styles of them. Some have extremely wide legs, others are slightly flared. Some are above the ankle, some are below. Fabrics range from knit to chiffon.

    Here’s just one style: Palazzzo Pants at HSN

    I don’t own one of these, and I’m not sure it’s for me, but it has been recommended on here several times in the past:

    I am a fan of chicos.com. Their travelers collection never needs ironing and

    flows nicely on stage and off.

    The best investment in gig clothes I ever made was a black velvet skirt/top set from nordstroms. I’ll have to check the label and let you know, but they never wrinkle and they roll

    Karen, Travelsmith.com just sent me an ad of a “long sweater” they carry in black, red, or misty blue. They call it “ruffled cardigan” and seems quite appropriate over dress slacks or a gown, for a harp player. If you have seen orchestra conductors in “tails”, this look is close to that. Take a look.
