Can't be a lycra overseas number - has to be very nice. My conditions are:

1. Cannot be red
2. Cannot be black
3. Cannot be white
4. Cannot be animal print.


Why? Can't be red because I was filmed in the red dress last night. Can't be black or white because it just doesn't look that great when filmed for television (unless very professional, like DWTS for example.) Can't be animal print, as another dancer will be wearing a Latin costume with animal print.

If anybody has any leads, please post! I will even rent at this late date.

Thank you!

All of the dresses I have are red, black, or white, so I'm afraid I'm of no help. Good luck!

Have you tried any of the online rental places? Depending on how busy the weekend is in terms of comps, you may be able to get something last minute.

Quick! Buy a bra, panties, some rhinestones, and napkins! :D

Unfortunately I can't help either: both of my Latin dresses are black . . .

Are there any dance stores around that stock practise wear? With some added stones or fringe or whatever accessories you may have, you could certainly make that work.

Good luck!

You may not even go to Bed Bath & Beyond. I haven't been into Victoria's Secret recently (I'm beyond broke right now :(), but whenever I've gone in with ballroom friends, there is ALWAYS something on at least one of the mannequins that will cause one of us to say, "Oooooooooh I just found my new Latin outfit!!." Given your current sense of urgency, I might actually seriously consider it, but I would definitely have to stone whatever I bought to death: I wouldn't want my audience thinking "Is she actually just wearing a VS get-up??" ;)

I'm keeping my extremities crossed for you!

That's pretty PG for them. The stuff I've seen on the mannequins could easily pass for burlesque theatre wardrobes sometimes. If nothing else works out, at least you've got a back-up (might want to check with the see-through factor on it before dancing under lights with it, though . . .)! ;)

I have more pics of the yellow latin dress from the original seller on my Hotmail account, but Hotmail is being really dodgy right now and I can't log in :confused:

Yellow one can be loaned (MQ already asked! :)) and the pink one is for loan or sale. I assume you mean the golden yellow and not the blinding screaming yellow two-piece.

Nah, they're all part of my insane collection. Many I'm willing to sell, and some are for loan only. I probably should put an archive of pics online somewhere. At the moment they're all sitting on a USB drive.

and some others:

I have removed the "drape" in back but still have it, and also added more substantial cuppage in the bra area. I would say the last 3 pics are truest to color. It's a very warm yellow (mango?). The stones are crystal AB, fire opal, and sun.
