Well thank you everyone for your help, and advice.

We went to Bloomingdales and Nordstrom and my neice found her dress at Nordstrom.

It's this dress, but the color is different (and younger) hers is two toned like an Ombre ribbon goes from a burgundy to a fuschia to burgundy again at the hem. It's really great on her and very elegant. She needs the hem taken up and the halter strap taken up a bit, but it fits her perfectly (even a tiny bit big) and she's going to look very lovely.

Here are some pics (the colors are off because it was a camera phone, it's not as muted, it's quite vibrant):

She loves it, and so do I (and her uncle, mom and grandma) and we had a REALLY fun time shopping for it!

Pretty dress! Very classy. So glad you all had fun shopping because that is really the experience a young gal remembers about time spent with her aunt. She''s lucky to have you!

We were totally on the same page, so it was pretty easy. Her prom is going to be very formal this year so she wanted elegant and fun.

As for shoes, she''s looking for something gold. But she has anke issues from a sports injuries so she has to find the right pair in person.

I had a lot of fun. I wish we still lived near them. I love my neices.

Ooooh, that dress is fantastic! It looks amazing on her, and not scandalous in the least. Good for her for picking something so pretty and classy. She is going to look like a red carpet starlet in that gown!

Awesome dress! Glad to hear she loves it. I am a high school teacher and you would not BELIEVE the dresses that girls show up to Prom in.

Woohoooo, good job aunt Gypsy! The dress looks great, and you obviously did well guiding her into something not, erm, neon green (that's what it was, right?)

This pic shows the real life colors (thought it's a different style).

Thank you all. I'm so happy for her. Her (yes musey, neon lime green) dress last year was apparently more of a fashion 'don't' than a 'do' so she really wanted something special.

Icekid, I think so.
But maybe if we think of it as gaining 'perspective' it won't be so bad.
