Please help me choose between these Christmas dresses
Hi, went shopping today and started looking for an outfit for a 40th birthday party that I'm going to (in the persons house so more casual than some). I also plan to wear whatever I get to my works christmas do (meal in a restaurant / bar) and also on Christmas Day. I liked the look of this skirt in Reiss this skirt although it did look a bit better in real life I thought. I then tried on these dresses in French Connection this ruffle dress or this beady one and really liked both on but just not sure if the beady one is a bit too ... beady. Please tell me what you think of them each. Thanks.
Thanks for all your comments although there are some mixed views so still hard to decide. I'm not sure why the skirt link hasnt been working as it works when I click on it. Do think though it would leave me having to find a top to match.
Have a slight post children pot but am basically thin (size 8) with smallish chest, no bum and decentish legs and so both dresses are quite flattering. There's a bit of me that think they are both quite dear and if I'm having this problem deciding then maybe neither are right for me. Thanks!
Oh, have just looked at the links again and realised that its the purple dress that comes up - the one I liked was the fourth one down - a charcoaly colour. Not sure if that makes a difference or not? Thanks
Don't like the beaded dress, not even in charcoal; the beaded part is arranged in a way that will make you look like a court jester
Saw some very nice dresses in Coast today, I especially like the hanette which is in the second row (I can't get the dress to load individually for some reason). I am very jealous because I have no excuse to buy it myself
