Opinion Requested...

Every summer I try to invest in one dress I love to wear throughout wedding season. Last summer, it was a cream, navy and had a lovely peachy top. Auburn fans were also a big fan of the dress, shown below.

Last summer's dress

This year, I've found a few dresses I love, but I'm (a) waiting until they go on sale b/c I hate paying full price for anything and (b) don't want anything too trendy, so I can wear over and over again. That's why I need your help! Which one you do like best?

Option # 1 - Love the color and belt!

Option # 2 - Love the colors and floral pattern - just wondering if this will last after 1 season

Option #3 - this looks so comfortable, I'd sleep in it. Also can't resist a sweetheart neckline.

So, what do you think?

  1. Oh, what a fun poll! Definitely dress no. one -- hands down, no questions asked. No. 2 is adorable, but the color may lose appeal. No. 3 is modern, but no. 1 is just so classic and effortless.

  2. Thanks Meagan - I can always count on you!

  3. Okay, not trying to stir up debate on your blog but I really like No. 3. But I think it may be because the coloring on my computer is outta whack! Is the dress No. 1 bright orange or more tangerine/coral? I like the fit of No. 2 but may not last through this season (that doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it though). Just my opinion!

  4. Hands down option 1. Option 2 is cute but almost too much. Feel like you wouldnt get more than one wear out of it. Love Option 3 but not as your wedding staple --- need something more cocktail length.

  5. #1- its a dress you can take out on the dance floor at a wedding... which is something that is important to me! :)
    I love the orange color with the khaki canvas belt... I just love those two colors together- very unique. Prada has a khaki canvas tote that just came out with orange details or camel brown details (2 options)- I love those colors together.

    You can always belt a long cardiagan with that belt over the dress and wear flip flops, wedges or even boots ( in the fall) if the material of the dress is appropriate.. so its versatile?

    I cant wait to shop... its been hard looking at only maternity stuff for the last 9 months! :)

  6. Wow - thanks everyone! I'm going to Buy dress #1 with my Macy's 25% today!

    Kristin - love the long one too - it's just so flowy and relaxed!

    Thanks again!
