DD2's leavers do next Friday. Have two dresses both similar styles from phase eight. The pink one is older and is a bit longer. Same jacket with both. Same sandals but taupe with the pink dress and navy with the other. Similar looks really. Which do you prefer?

And for the evening ball the navy butterfly maxi or red evening dress?

Here is the red one. It needs something done with the V as my bra shows.

I prefer the black and white dress and the red maxi, but it's hard to tell if those are the most flattering for your colouring.
Sounds like a fab event(s).

You are slim and elegant I think those maxi dresses are swamping you rather than flattering you.
Like the daytime outfit in both options.
Have a lovely time💐

Mouldy I am far from slim. I am a robust size16! But I will take the compliment anyway! I am going shopping tomorrow with a plan to buy a new evening dress and I planned to reuse one of my day dresses. I just wanted really to work out if one of the evening dresses would work if I couldn't find anything else.

I prefer the red of the two.

Black and white for day. Red out of the two potentials for evening, but agree that you might be able to find something better if you want to shop!

I agree wit,h everyone else...the navy and white for the day, and red for the night.

Have a lovely time!

Navy for day, red for night

Is it navy, not black? Still that one though!

Navy for day, red for night.

Consensus then! I love the navy one so that is day sorted. If I can't find a new evening one tomorrow the red one will be worn.

The school is a small independent school which takes boarders. DD is a day pupil. This is her cohort leaving. Because lots of the parents come a long way for the prize giving/speeches they are also invited to the ball. After the ball the youngsters all head off for an after party to let their hair down!
