The dresses arrived this morning and I did a quick try on. I tried three footwear options and three bag options.

I think the size is correct. The dress is well made - a little stiff but linen blends soften with washing. The orange has white stitching, the blue has yellow.

I don’t have a strong opinion yet but will look at the pics and try on again later ( and ask a friend).

Blue orange or neither?
I don’t want both!!

The price is fair I believe for a cotton linen blend- it is not cheap but not exorbitant. I have tan leather options too that I think will look great with either but the sandals are stored away for winter.

Whilst orange and black are a bit Halloween the connotation is not as strong here as in some parts of the world.

Neither is a fine vote too so be honest.

I could cinch the waist a bit more I think especially on the orange.

ETA - I am keeping the orange. I was very undecided and in the end I think the orange is better on me. The blue is more practical but Jon loves the orange.
