Hi! Wanted to get your opinion on a couple of red dresses. I'm looking for something to wear to upcoming holiday parties (DH and I usually have holiday parties at work). Do you like either of these dresses?
The first one is a Maggy London sheath. It's size 8 (the 6 is backordered). I don't think I'd want to go any tighter than this anyways though. The second is a Taylor fit and flare. I have size 6 and 8 here. The 6 is very fitted and a little snug around the waist. The 8 has more breathing room at the waist, but I worry that the bodice looks a little too loose and wrinkly. I think I prefer the print placement of the size 6.
1-3. Maggy London sheath, size 8.
4-6. Taylor fit and flare, size 6.
7-9. Taylor fit and flare, size 8.
DH strongly prefers the second one--he thinks the lace detail on the sheath is too frou-frou. DD likes the first one because of the lace. I think the fit and flare is more "me" (plus it has pockets!), but the sheath is maybe more grown-up looking. I just realized that the fit and flare just went on sale, so I can get a price adjustment. I could keep both if you really like both, but they are kind of similar looking so if you have a preference let me know. The theme of my work holiday party is "Winter Wonderland"--would either of these dresses work? Any ideas for toppers--maybe a black or a white faux fur shrug? And do you think I could wear either of these to work later? Thanks so much!
