I ordered a dress from Modcloth to wear to DH’s boot camp graduation on April 20th and it came in today! It was low-cut, as I had feared, but luckily I have a cami in the same tan color as the accents on the dress. What do you ladies think of it? (The dress; ignore my face and hair, which I know are dreadful).
My only concern is that we are encouraged to wear red to show support for his batallion, and the dress is clearly NOT red. I was thinking of maybe wearing red earrings and bringing a red purse?
Alternatively, I could return this dress and purchase this one, which is more money but definitely red. It’s also listed as being the same length. I guess the concern with this one is that I am more than likely going to be sunburnt after spending 9 days in North and South Carolina, and it might clash big time with the red dress.

I like the red ress as well – but either way, forgo the tank top underneath, he’ll appreciate it more that way 😉
(Kidding. Kind of.)

I’m team red! The shape will look great on you, and it’s really pretty!
I do like the first dress too, but I think that red will go well with the event. Just buy some spf 50 sunblock!

I like the red one better but the one you have is also really pretty. If you want to keep that one instead of returning and reordering I would say does some hot red shoes

Thank you ladies so much! The red one is $80… but I feel like it’s probably worth it, lol. I agree that it’s much happier! I hadn’t seen it when I ordered the first one.
@VintageDivine: While I’m sure he would appreciate it, so would the rest of his platoon… and I don’t want to be “that wife” hahaha.

The brown one is pretty, but the red one is sexy and vibrant; your husband will love it!

I think both are really cute!!! If you want to keep the one you have maybe you can get a nice pair of red heels to wear with it 🙂
