Would You

get this dress in red or purple?  I intend to use it for multiple evening weddings and parties I have on my busy social calendar this year.

Re: Would You

  • I am not fashion forward at all but I personally think it would look great in red with black peep-toe pumps or a really cute pair of flats :)
  • I generally love purple and blue, but not those.  They're too bright.  At least red is supposed to be bright.

    I got this and love it.  Even though the event I was supposed to wear it to didn't happen, I kept it for future.  This is the kind of blue I'm talking about :)

    I'm with you.

    I really like that dress.  I originally wanted a navy v neck dress and the damn thing sold out before I bought it.  I'll definitely consider this one.

    How does it fit?  True to size or should I go up a dress size like the site says?

  • They are all too bright for me. If I had to choose, I would buy the black dress.

  • First off you should know I LOVE purple. Secondly brights work really well on me so for me I would do the purple. Reds don't work because my skin is so pink.

    For you I would do Sibil's dress in that blue. Its beautiful.

  • If purple is a good color on you, thats what I would get.

    The old biddy in me would shy away from wearing a red tight/fitted dress to a wedding. lol

    ETA I like Sibil's dress idea

  • I vote red. It's classic and would look awesome with your coloring.
  • So... I love the dress and WOULD say go red, however I just bought a jersey cotton dress in red from VS (for V-day) and it seemed a little.. washed out IMO... As if I have had it for a few years and multiple washes.
  • I really like the red in that dress.  The purple is nice but I think it's too bright of a color and would limit your options of wearing it.  Personally I usually stick to black but I'm boring like that.

  • I vote purple.... red is not appropriate for all occasions ( my MIL wore a bright red, low cut dress to my wedding, so I might be scarred).

     

    You can make the purple summery or wintery, it's a great dress!! So cute!

  • I love the purple but I usually wear very bright colors.  My pale skin makes me look washed out if I don't.

  • If you're worried about the red being inappropriate for a wedding get the purple. I love nice bright colors. It's not like it's neon purple.
