Up for consideration are two turquoise dresses. They're actually somewhat similar in color, watery print and draped waists. So I don't know if you think they are too similar to keep both (and whether you like one over the other, both or neither).
The first one (1-7) is a Michael by Michael Kors agate print dress for $71
that I fell for when I saw Rae in it, and she rocked it for the nature challenge. I bought it from 6pm but size S was not available (I normally wear size 4-6 dresses) so I had to get a M. Is this too big on me? I like it but my only hesitation is if the top part is too loose on me or looks OK. Is this more of a work or MOTG dress, or can it work for both? I thought it would look good with my new yellow Fossil satchel. It has a watery swirly print like the Florentine papers. And the material is soft and stretchy like a T shirt, and it seems like it would be a good wrinkle-resistant travel dress. (ETA: it's polyester with spandex, and is machine washable).
The second one (8-15) is a Diane von Furstenberg beetle print dress that I bought off eBay for $140 after the wrap dress fiasco (that one got returned). This one is a size 4. It's ever so slightly tight around my torso to zip up, but the neck is kind of low cut and the bust draping makes it look a tad big on the top, so I think a 6 might be too big. I think I would probably have to wear this with a black cami underneath for work. This one is a faux wrap, so less worries about inadvertent flashing at work. Also it has a cool beetle print (you can see it on the back best in 14-15). The draping is a little funny looking (10-12) but I think that's supposed to be that way. It feels a little dressier in material (100% silk) and styling than the MMK, so this would mainly be a work and possibly date dress.
So what do you think? Thumbs up or down on these two dresses? (although the eBay one is not returnable).
