lr0901 : 

That’s a good and interesting article and it is a pity you didn’t make its quite radical and feminst message clear in your first  post  . Had you really wanted us to respond as you say you did , then it should have read . ” Don’t care if its flattering  , is this dress ugly?” 

This comment of yours  “And yes, I used the word flattering, but I said I realize it is not as flattering… which was my way of trying to explain that I don’t care about the concept of flattery”  makes no sense unless you are expecting mindreading.

I am not rude enough to say the blue dress is ugly, only rather dated and  clunky with that frill at the bottom and those  flutter sleeves at  odds with the rest of it .

This one’s only $500, though that’s probably a bit spendy haha. It’s so pretty though I love it!

The blue dress doesn’t look as good photographed in real life as it does in the photo-shopped Net a Porter picture.

Sorry but I thought you looked like a pilgrim in it.

lr0901 :  I have another idea – have you thought of switching to this similar dress by Needle & Thread – it’s on sale at Net-a-porter for the same price as the blue:

Obviously it’s not blue, but it would go a lot better with your theme and bridesmaids dresses, and has the beading you like. Also I think it would suit your skin tones.

If you went for this it would involve putting your existing dress up for sale. Who knows – it’s a current and popular style – you might be able to sell it quite quickly.

ETA: OK, realised the above dress is backless do may not be your style. This one is $295 at ASOS and may be better.

I just don’t care for the first dress. It kind of looks like a dress an older women would wear. Now just because I don’t care for it, you need to wear what you feel comfortable in. I love your other gown, it’s beautiful and very flattering!!
