Special occasion long sleeve dresses

I got a great question from a reader the other day. Where can you get special occasion long sleeve dresses? She wants something to cover up an area that makes her self conscious—her arms. I understand. We can't all have sculpted guns like the First Lady. For toning arms I recommend yoga push ups. Those will seriously cause you pain. In the mean time, I found some great long sleeve dresses all for around $100 or less and not in black. I was surprised to find a lot of great long sleeve dresses that would be extremely flattering. Would you wear any of these dresses to a wedding or special event? Where do you buy your dresses?
Vero Moda Very Cross Over Print Dress, $88.63
I love the dramatic draping of this dress. The plunging neckline makes this long sleeve dress sexy, but not over done.

Asos Shift Dress with Bell Sleeve, $55.40
I love a good shift dress for any occasion. The bell sleeves give this dress such a cool retro vibe. And it is just begging to be accessorized with a great statement necklace.


One by Line & Dot printed dress, $118
This dress would be a nice departure from the typical cocktail dresses usually worn at weddings. With a delicate chain belt, dangly earrings, and a dressy sandal this could easily become wedding appropriate. 

Although the fabric is plain, the unique gathering of this dress kicks it up a notch. The contemporary and sexy fit make it very appropriate for a special occasion. And the purple is such a gorgeous color that you could easily accessorize with sparkly earrings. 

Besides the great pattern, I love the scoop neck, ruching, and cut out in the back.
