Just ordered this dress: http://www.dylanqueen.com/a-line-pri....html?catid=40

but now I'm reconsidering the colour, not too sure if I should get it in red, or a light sky blue? Any opinions are welcome.

Click this link to see other styles of dresses in the blue that I'm considering:

If you need an idea of my figure/complexion etc just have a flick through posts that I've made with attachments in the fitness and 'What are you wearing today' thread. Below are 2 links, but there are more if needed.

Definitely sky blue, unless you go to a school full of Arsenal fans.

Hmm okay. The dress is nice but there's something odd about the shade of red. I would go with the light blue if it's not a tacky, overly bright colour.

Hey,
You're lucky because I think both would really suit your complexion
I would personally go for sky blue because it's quite original and I don't know about your school, but people are always wearing red at mine! x

Thank you!! That's the colour I'm referring to because I thought it looked amazing on her

This is the blue they've got on the website though: http://www.dylanqueen.com/formal-dre...hown_color=134 - reckon it's similar?

Thanks!




Thank you

This is the blue: http://www.dylanqueen.com/AllYouNeedToKnow.html#tabs-2 Go down to Chiffon and click 'light sky blue'
The light blue is a really nice, powdery colour. I think it would match you but due to your skin colour, red would look great too. It's just I don't really like the red of the dress but maybe it just doesn't match the model

Hi!

I agree with Lauraines, in that sky blue would look more unique because I think red is always popular at these types of functions plus I think that the sky blue is more softer on the eyes, if you get what I mean? Good Luck with the decision and enjoy the Prom!

Thanks for not be rude about my honesty
I don't like sounding rude.
I think it's a little plain and boring. I think if your going prom, you should go with a BANG !
Not saying go half naked or slutty.. :L - thats not how i roll..

What about a short dress?
This is the first thing i spotted on Google images that looked OK..
everything else was shorted and more revealing..
But if you like Long dresses ( i do too) , what about;

OR;

I love the colour of the blue dress, it would suit your skin tone. Your figure would suit most dresses tbh lol
