    nessa.ana:  I love the idea but have a few thoughts:

    – are those dresses charmeuse?  If so, undergarments will be CRUCIAL.

    – I personally would be hesitant to get those dresses when they both would require work and the fabric is probably quite fragile.

    – a lot of designers do dresses in late art deco styles – this is why I would be hesitant to spend so much on a dress that would be that difficult to update/wear

    – if your goal is “authenticity”, the early Art Deco years (“flappers”) with those late art deco designs (especially the second) might somewhat clash – sue wong makes some beautiful drop waist beaded gowns that would be more accurate theme-wise.  If you are going for a general Art Deco feel that is probably a non-consideration since it’s all in an about 25-30 year span of time

    I’m in the minority here, but I’ll throw in a vote for dress A. Will you post again when you get the dresses so we can see you in them? I’m so curious to see how it turns out! 🙂
