Ooooh I like that, and it really suits you. I would go bigger in those circumstances, to allow for the unpredictable effects of both washing and sitting.

It’s the sitting that is swaying me, as much as I want the smaller to be better.

The smaller looks better on you to my eye.

Which one can you move in? Can you whirl your arms around in the smaller one? That always pisses me off, even if it fits when you're standing still.

I think the smaller one definitely looks better on but you do have to be able to sit and move around comfortably.

I can definitely move in the smaller, but I’d just reconciled myself to the bigger one. I’m all undecided again now! I’ll try again in the morning. I can’t return until Friday anyway, so I’ve time to make up my mind.

I think the first picture. It looks lovely on you. I bought the blouse and it arrived today as well. I really like it. I think the sizing comes up small though

I’d say the bigger one, because you could always get it altered. Definitely keep one of them because the colours are so lovely on you.

I think the smaller one does look better in the photo but I agree you also need to be able to move easily. I like bigger dresses for swishing about in.

I’d definitely say the smaller looks better, it’s a lovely dress!

Don’t get a dress where you need to keep it done up with a safety pin! You’ll forget and move suddenly and rip the top or wash it with the pin still in or something. I speak from experience :cry:

Yeah, I think it has to be the bigger one. :)

They both look great but from experience I'd never keep anything that required a safety pin. It always goes wrong.

I have a very similar bag to that, which I love, but it is so so heavy. Honestly I never use it because it weighs so much and it doesn't have a long shoulder strap.

One of the reviews said it was lightweight which allures me more. Although I am confused that the description says it’s suede..
