Let's Have A Ball: Affordable Inaugural Dresses You'll WANT To Wear Again

whbmslide
We've already dug up a bounty of beautiful inaugural ball-ready frocks, but as January 19 approaches, the list of options just keeps getting longer — and the sources might surprise you, too. White House Black Market just launched the "From Our White House To Yours" collection, a line of limited-edition inaugural ball gowns that start at $250 and top out at $300. The line is mostly made up of timeless, solid-black frocks, with a healthy mix of short and long silhouettes and a few youthful details — asymmetry, illusion netting, beading — to keep it all on-trend.

If you're bound for a ball and want to scope out the collection in person, head to one of the four local WHBM stores (at Pentagon City, Tysons Corner, Chevy Chase, and Westfield Montgomery) on January 10 to grab a drink and chat with a stylist about creating your perfect look.
When: Thursday, January 10, from 6-9 p.m.
Where: Four area White House Black Market locations; find address information here.
