Red dress, gold vintage heels & green necklace


Black lace dress, green necklace, red patent peep toes?

Fwiw hair is red shoulder length of anyone has styling suggestions there smile

I like the red one best.

Awks Fri 04-Dec-15 21:43:39

Like the red one. It's festive smile

Tartyflette Fri 04-Dec-15 21:46:32

I like the black and cream one on you best.

Neonbib Fri 04-Dec-15 21:48:11

Black dress is lovely

imnottoofussed Fri 04-Dec-15 21:51:48

I like the black one best but the red is also lovely so not a definite no either smile

They're both nice but the black is more slimming. I'd wear black tights with it.

ScarlettDarling Fri 04-Dec-15 22:10:22

I like them both but the red is more festive

JaceLancs Fri 04-Dec-15 22:13:06

I prefer the red I think it flatters your figure better

calzone Fri 04-Dec-15 22:14:25

Black one is more flattering.

I would say black with gold shoes, no necklace.

You look light years better in the first one. The red emphasises your tum and there's no need, the first one doesn't. Wear a few gold chains to draw attention to your chest in the black dress and some fabulous sheer stockings and black shoes with very high heels to draw attention to your legs. Hair big, soft, flowing.

Coastingit Fri 04-Dec-15 22:17:51

Red one definitely.

Penguito Fri 04-Dec-15 22:18:51

Black really suits your figure

BonitaFangita Fri 04-Dec-15 22:19:42

both dresses are lovely. But I really like the red one, it really suits you figure, have a great night

shedragon Fri 04-Dec-15 22:20:56

Black. Much better

polyhymnia Fri 04-Dec-15 22:31:31

The red doesn't really flatter your tummy. The black better but very short and I think would be most flattering with black opaques and black non bling shoes. I don't think gold chains on it would improve it. It's already making quite a statement with the black on nude effect.

polyhymnia Fri 04-Dec-15 22:33:21

Also think the long sleeves on the black more flattering.

ThreeRuddyTubs Fri 04-Dec-15 22:34:20

The black one is much more flattering to your figure than the red

polyhymnia Fri 04-Dec-15 22:40:38

And agree on keeping hair in a soft style, to keep the look soft and not too obvously 'full-on'.

PrimalLass Fri 04-Dec-15 22:45:16

The black one hands down.

shedragon Fri 04-Dec-15 23:03:16

Yy agree, black with dark tights and non-fussy black shoes. Necklace not needed with the dress. Bracelet if you want

timelytess Sat 05-Dec-15 00:26:33

I stand by 'my' necklaces. You might say the pattern makes them unnecessary, and its true most necklaces would fight the dress, but you have a heck of an asset in the lower necklace region and you don't want to undersell it. Its Christmas, its a party, go for it.

curriegirl Sat 05-Dec-15 08:46:36

The red one. I think the black one is too short on you. Where is the red one from?

Kennington Sat 05-Dec-15 08:57:22

But both are great

Dowser Sat 05-Dec-15 10:16:03

I like both. You have fab legs. If it was a really chilly night I'd go for long sleeves, warmer night no sleeves.
