    I don't really like either of them. They look a lot cheaper than they are, and like they'd not be very well fitted.
    I did like the asos one posted, however

    To be blunt I think option 1 looks really trashy and cheap. Option 2 slightly better but I think it's a nice enough style on its own without being sequinned, something with quite a fancy shape like that could be worn in a simple colour with no sequins.

    But then again I'm more understated than overstated with dresses so that would sway my opinion.

    Neither, they both look a bit cheap. The one someone posted from asos is lovely.

    Hello all

    Its my good friends birthday next month and he has hired out a few tables at a very swanky london bar...so I am trying to decide on a dress.

    I want to go for an evening sequin dress (to wear with black patent heels) - that makes a statement and is sexy/sophisticated..so..

    option 1:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Arynk-LA-sequi...3A1%7C294%3A50

    I really like this but I have two dresses that are pretty much exactly the same style as this (grecian draped) except without the sequins and the square back.

    option 2:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/GORGEOUS-BNWT-...3A1%7C294%3A50

    This is the one which I liked more initially - I know it is a bit louder but I would definitely be confident enough to wear it and its not similar to any of the other dresses that I have worn out.

    Opinions pleeeasse? thanks

    (and also I know the risk with buying from ebay but I have bought other dresses from their before and just got measurements etc )
    I really like the second one, the stripes are eye catching but I'm not sure about the sytle of it, the neck looks quite high rather than low cut and it might be a bit swamping. I like the one someone suggested on ASOS as the shapes better and the sequin skirt is just the right amount of sparkle I think. Plus that would enable you to wear more jewelry as you'd be wearing less sparkle.

    It depends on what you look like and what sort of general style you have. Both kind of have the potential to look cheap- the second one more so- but if you dress it up right either one would be okay. Go for the one that fits best with your style, really, and that you'd feel more confident wearing.

    I'm not really one to talk, though- I own a vintage 80s power dress covered entirely in blindingly-bright emerald sequins. ; D I do love a sequin or a thousand.

    i prefer the second one, and i have to say i'm not keen on the asos dress. but then again i believe you can never have too many sequins!
