I have posted my dress options several times, the last time was between this Oleg Cassini and Maggie Sottero Lorie.
I love the lace of Lorie but love the sleeves of the Oleg, so I made the decision to go with the Oleg even though the majority said the Lorie looked better.
Then a few weeks later I was browsing online and found a Bonny 1299 Lace Bolero on sale for $40.00 down from $200.00. I decided to go for it and try it with the Lorie. It came in and I love how it looks, but I’m not sure if the lace on the arms looks too heavy. I do like the option of taking the bolero off later in the night if I want.
Please excuse the messy room behind me, I’m doing a major closet cleanout.
Both dresses are unaltered and too big in the chest and shoulders.
Which should I choose?

I agree with you like the lace on the Lorie but the sleeves on the oleg. could you get a different bolero for the Lorie?

The Maggie with the bolero, hands down!!! The shape of the dress is so lovely on you and I like the lace bolero much better than the illusion netting. Beautiful!!

Maggie with bolero. The lace looks like it matches perfectly and that dress is way more flattering on you. It looks gorgeous.

The bolero is PERFECT with the Maggie dress. Pick that one right now!! And I think the belt from that dress would still look great with this combo.

PP are right, the bolero is just perfect with the Lori.

I agree with everyone. The lace on the bolero is nicer than the illusion top of the Oleg. I also like the lace on the skirt of the Lorie better.

Love the Maggie on you! The bolero looks really nice with it, too. Looks like it was made to go with that dress.

I see I’m in the minority as I prefer the Oleg. The sleevels and quality of the lace win me over. However I think you’re going to look perfect whichever you choose as both looks are beautiful.
