Dresses with sleeves are almost impossible to find, so these two EF dresses on sale followed me home. I need your objective eyes to decide what to keep..both, one, or neither.
On the plus side, they are both not black. The first is EF color "ash" or a medium grey. The second is an olive or EF color "oregano". Both could be dressed up or down and could be worn for at least 3 seasons. The shirt dress could be worn open as a duster. It is linen, viscose and spandex woven fabric. The first is viscose and spandex. It is hard to tell if it is woven or knit, but has a nice non-cling drape.
On the down side, I have a casual life so don't wear dresses as much as I'd like to. What I buy needs to stay in my closet for 2-3 years.
What do you think of these? Keep or return and keep looking? For styling I have bootie type footwear that I could wear with either and would probably wear a scarf. The second dress could be worn over slim pants, open or buttoned.
1/2: ash grey dress
3-5: oregano green button down

Finds. I think these are the same dresses although I can't find the grey one in ash grey or the shirtwaist in oregano. The first is available in the red, smoke grey and a deep blue; the second in black. I gave much less for the ones I got so those colors in these dresses may be discontinued.
