    Personally, I would feel a little uncomfortable removing my gown after graduation when all the family and friends are milling around sipping punch if I were wearing a strapless dress. It’s a great dress though, and if you feel confident enough to pull it off then go for it. In my case though, I would probably want something just a little more demure for walking around among all those grandmothers in the middle of the day. So I say go for the black one.

    Congratulations!

    I like the striped because it’s more fun!  No one at the actual graduation will see your dress so it depends on the party you are having.

    Black!  Since it’s a graduation I would want to look more sophisticated.. plus its the morning. if you are going out that night you could always change and wear the stripped one then! And congrats on graduation!! My fiance is almost done in his 1st year of medical school so I see all the hard work that goes into it!!

    I think the black one is too dressy, but I just re-read and it IS medical school. I voted for the striped one anyhow…. Both are great. Congratulations!

    Oh and you could always find some really cute heels to top off the dress since that is what will show through the ceremony!

    I love the striped one so much! Isn’t it from Anthro? I think that’s where I saw it and I thought it was so cute! I understand your point about looking professional, but I still like the striped one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The black one.  It will look great with black heels under your cap and gown.  When I graduated from my program I had on a black dress (with yellow touches).  Looked great when I took off the cap and gown.

    Very elegant and chic!

    Wear the other dress for maybe brunch the next day after your diploma lands!

    Congratulations!
