Sorry I'm hogging the forum today

I was done with dress shopping a few weeks ago, or so I thought. I ended up getting these two dresses but am unsure about keeping them, would greatly appreciate your opinions.

Max Studio Striped Dress. I found this at TJMaxx online (as part of extra stuff get free shipping for the sandals I wanted to try) and only after I ordered it did I notice the other ‘find” from Nordstrom Rack and see all the other conversations about it. It was hugely popular in the earlier dress monsoon. I’m on the fence on tis one. I’m not sure whether the gathered section at the hip is distracting and pulls attention away from my face, or whether it’s very modern looking and looks great. What do you think?

A navy lined cotton dress with pink/grey/white geometric embroidery on the yoke, front and back. The brand is Artisan NY. The fabric is actually a subtle navy/black stripe. The fit is good. Very casual, but with metallic sandals and bag could be just a bit more dressy. I’m on the fence about whether this reads a little too boho for me.
