Ok, so I really like the color block style for a going out style, but what I like even more is a little bit of metallic. Not enough for an outfit to look trashy, but just enough so a dress remains classic with a little bit of embellishment.
I love this design from Modcloth . . .
However at $105, it's not exactly economically feasible on my salary
Another option (also from the same website) is almost half the price at $70 a pop:
But lo and behold, I found almost the same exact dress in a different color scheme on Lulus.com for even less at $56.
Those are the options, take them or leave them. My personal favorite is dress number two since I'm not much of a pink fan, but I may change my mind and try something different. Any of these would look awesome in nude color heels which are in this season. I personally would try option 1 or 2 with a strappy gold pump. Number 3 can be rocked with something silver or even a teal wedge if you want to get risky.
Chances are if Lulus has the dress in pink, they'll be getting it in the black and gold scheme pretty soon.
