    The first one is what my BF calls a mullet dress.  It’s cute, just not my taste

    I’m really sorry and I hope this doesn’t offend too greatly, but they both look a little trashy. Given the examples you posted on your last thread and the occasion (if it is indeed the Costume Designers’ Guild Award) they don’t seem appropriate.

    @jayebaby:  I like both, but I think the second one is more appropriate. As much as I like the first one, I can’t help but think it’s something that is reminiscent of something you’d wear in the bedroom! You probably don’t want anyone thinking that.

    The second one is sexy but fun and glamourous… what I imagine you’d want to wear on a red carpet!

    @jayebaby:  Of the two, I prefer the second and DH preferred the first.

    @jayebaby:  For an awards show, I prefer #2, but I also quite like #1.

    i just checked out your original post so seeing what you look like and knowing your height, i think the first dress will look awesome on you! also, don’t be afraid to use RTR in the future, i’ve rented dresses numerous times and i’ve never had any issues with damage or anything. their customer service is amazing too.

    They both look pretty trampy to me.

    Number 2 is slightly less trampy.

    I vote 2. I don’t think 1 is elegant.

    Of the two I prefer the second, but I think they look a bit too young/prom for the type of event you are describing. I would go for a little bit more elegant.

    I would check out Ideelit (there is a sale on Nicole Miller formal dresses right now, and a few other evening gown boutiques open too) or Rue La La. I’ve seen way more elegant dresses than these for a fraction of the price!
