    HeartsandSparkles:  I really love the red dress I think it will pop and look very good with the scenery And with the style you going for.

    The black one and the red one are both gorgeous. I think the print of the black polka dotted dress isn’t busy enough to really cause issues – it’s a very basic print, and the cut of the dress is great.

    HeartsandSparkles:  I heart Modcloth! I almost bought that last one as my wedding dress (tiny wedding in a restaurant). NO polka dots (for pix), though it’s a darling dress. I honestly think that red dress would really pop, too! I like the wine dress style, but not so much the color.

    This is fun…Hard to say though without seeing a picture of you or knowing your personality. 

    I like the wine dress, it’s sophisticated and period appropriate.

    I think the polka dot is too distracting.  In a photo, I would be looking at the dress and not you.

    The blue and the red are more girlie.  If that better suites your personality, then go for it.  As a dress, I like the red over the blue.

    I think the wine colored one will look fantastic!  That color is great on pale skin, actually.  I bet the fit and style will be super flattering… I’d order it and see what you think?  

    The polka dot and red lattice will be too busy/distracting in pictures, IMHO.

    I love all of those dresses, honestly. The blue is my least favorite. I think the vintage burgundy one is very cool.

    Wine colored one gets my vote. Timeless and classy.

    HeartsandSparkles:  I like the polka dot & the red dress alot! I actualy really enjoy patterns & colors in e-photos way more than solids. I wore a blue sweater with a plaid pink shirt underneath and my favorite part of my outfit looking at the pics were the tiny peeks of that plaid and made me wish I had been more brave with my wardrobe… I think the polka dot is a little more casual, while you could really play up the red dress with sparkly accessories for a more “night-out” type of look…
